No, what makes it not happen is everyone's inability to prove me wrong. Just saying I'm wrong without backing it up doesn't make it so.
So students can get special permission and an exception can be made. That still doesn't negate my whole premise. Now either prove me wrong or be man enough to admit defeat.
So once again everyone else is wrong and you are right. That seems to be a not-so-uncommon theme of yours.

Your premise was stated in post #20: "Imeant there outta (sic) be a low that BANS prayer. Oh wait, THERE IS!"

Prayer is not banned. What is banned is public (taxpayer-funded) schools leading/requiring organized prayer. Another obvious, significant distinction that is somehow beyond your grasp. Students can pray all they want. Little Susie can pray her little heart out before she eats lunch or takes her history test if she wants.

Oh, right, that's not a ban at all. Silly me....

Your premise was that prayer was banned so, yep, it negates it.
An exception does not negate anything! Try to follow along.

Smoking has been banned everywhere, except in cigar bars. Does that mean smoking HASN'T been banned?

I see people smoking all the time. I have to pass through the cloud to get in my office's front door. My co-workers still take smoke breaks and people freely smoke while walking down the street.

So no, smoking has not been banned.

Yes, silly you indeed.

Take a minute to go to the dictionary and look up the definition of "ban." Next look up the definition of "limitation." Note that neither is a synonym for the other.

A ban means it's not allowed. Period.

By your definition, smoking, drinking, playing loud music, shooting a gun, letting your dog to run off a leash, abortion, intercourse, hunting, fishing and thousands of activities that people do every day are "banned." They are not, there are simply restrictions on how nad/or when you can do them. Public school-organized/sponsored prayer is banned, but prayer in schools is not.

Again, I don't know if you're stupid or obtuse, you tell me, but you're incorrect.

Both. Though "incorrect" is kind of a given at this point wouldn't you say?
