Oklahoma’s version of Joe the Plumber doesn’t care for the first amendment and the ban on state sanctioned religion unless it means more Christianity:
The next caller, a woman from Antlers, said she was worried about “the way they’ve taken prayer out of school and the direction this country is headed with this one-religion ideal.”
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the early 1960s that schools could not impose mandatory prayers in public schools. Subsequent decisions have allowed “moments of silence” and student-organized voluntary prayer.
Mullin said that isn’t good enough.
“How can we ask our kids to do something we’re not willing to do ourselves?” he asked. “We’re saying to our kids, ‘We’re not willing to take a stand; our teachers are not willing to take a stand; our superintendents are not willing to take a stand.’
“That is hypocritical,” Mullin said. “If we want to put prayer back in our schools, our communities have to stand up; the churches have to stand up; the parents have to stand up. They have got to say, ‘No, we want it in our schools.’ We’re going to do what we want to do because it’s our schools. It’s our public schools.
“Prayer is the root of this country.”
Mullin said his own children attend a rural public school in which “the superintendent stands up and prays every morning.”
Hopefully someone knows the district Mullin’s kids attend and file a complaint against the Superintendent (if it’s true). Or in the very least get Mullin rejecting led Islamic, Jewish, Pagan, or any other prayer in school.
