The question is...Why are the parents not outraged about their own children's behavoir???
The parents are not outraged because some of them are acting like and encouraging these children. Still, I've stated in an earlier post that Mrs. Hussain acted childishly. A teacher should not demean the students she teaches nor the parents of these students. Unfortunately, this courtesy does not apply to parents and their children. When parents demean their children's teachers, the teachers are not allowed to retaliate. And, yes, it can be very frustrating.

I don't think Timothy McVeigh was Muslim. But it turns out that he was a terrorist. Same goes for Eric Rudolph and Ted Kazynski. All of these individuals weren't Muslim. Rudolph proclaimed to be a devout Christian. There are others, but these are the 3 most prominent of recent times. So was it their religion that influenced them? As far as your logic being closer, I think you just lost a few more points. Religious beliefs make people do stupid things everyday. It doesn't matter what the religion is. Not all religious people are out to do harm, but their are zealots in every belief. But when it comes down to kids harassing teachers, that should not be tolerated. Most religious people that I know teach their kids that if someone doesn't believe the same as they do, then it is ok to discriminate against them. That is why the founders chose to separate church and state with the first amendment so that bias based on religious beliefs would not interfere with government. If those kids are that bent on trying to press their beliefs on others, then they should be going to private schools. Then they can preach to the choir.
Allen,
All valid points, but what sect of the afore mentioned individuals propagates and encourages violence? As you noted, there are likely zealots in every religion, but can you name two (since we already know one of them) that openly states that all others must revert (not convert) to their faith or be tagged as infidels and should be killed?
I'll support your position on the separation of church and state, but I'd ask that you read the Constitution. The separation you speak of is not part of the first amendment. The first amendment simply, eloquently, and simply states that congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion ...or the free exercise therof.
