School Daze

Look for more of this:

Faced with a school board that decided against giving all students in Hillsborough County, Florida holidays for Yom Kippur, Good Friday or Eid ul-Fitr, Ahmed Bedier, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, unsurprisingly concluded that this was of course "just an excuse to hide bias against the Muslims."

The ACLU has made great strides in erasing religion from school calendars; the Muslims should have no complaints.

Of course, Christians and Jews who observe Easter/Passover have been "de-calendared" with "Spring Holidays" which more often than not have no relationship to the dates on which these feasts fall.

Maybe the ACLU is really a Puritan plot.
