A Florida 5-year-old was reportedly told by a lunchroom employee at her school that praying before eating was a no-no - and now her irate father has opted to take her out of school lest she be deprived of her religious freedom. CBS reports that her father, Marcos Perez, has summoned the legal prowess of the conservative Liberty Institute to demand the school change its ways:

Flat earthers are maritime & flight navigators that still use flat maps and gps which is displayed on “flat” screens.

Because flat earthers (navigators) use flat maps and flat screens. They shouldn’t be denied equal time with NASA or any other entity.

Good luck on using a spherical navigation system in your vehicle.

Cannibal, n. Someone who is fed up with people.
Two cannibals met one day in the jungle: "I went up the river and got me a couple of Catholic monks the other day and brought em home and boiled them and they tasted terrible." "You boiled them?" "Yeah, why?" "Those are friars."
Two guys are captured by cannibals and they're stuck naked in a big pot of water over a fire and the water gets hotter and hotter and all of a sudden, one guy starts laughing, and the other guy says, "What's so funny?" "I just peed and took a dump in their soup!"
Vegetarians eat vegetables. Beware of humanitarians.
The spice added to the soup was particularly funny.

Actually, the ACLU would probably take the case as well. While they are better known for defending constitutional prohibitions of teachers leading prayers, they have also defended students' rights to do so on their own. For example,

The ACLU of Virginia (2014) supported the right of Christian students to proselytize on a community college campus.
http://acluva.org/14911/aclu-tells-virginia-c...

The ACLU of Virginia (2012 and 2010) opposed bans on students' right to wear rosary beads at two public middle schools. The schools dropped the bans after receiving letters from the ACLU.
https://www.aclu.org/religion-belief/letter-m...
https://www.aclu.org/religion-belief/letter-f...

The ACLU of Virginia (2011) wrote a letter on behalf of a group of Christian athletes in Floyd County High School after the school removed copies of the Ten Commandments the athletes had displayed on the outside of their personal lockers.
https://acluva.org/7257/aclu-tells-floyd-coun...

The ACLU of Texas (2011) opposed a school district's policy prohibiting students from visibly wearing rosaries, crosses, and other articles of faith.
http://www.aclutx.org/2011/11/18/aclu-of-texa...

The ACLU of Nebraska (2011) objected to a public school district's policy barring students from wearing rosaries.
http://www.aclunebraska.org/index.php/religio...

The ACLU of Colorado (2010) opposed a public school's policy that barred students from wearing crosses and rosaries in public view.
http://aclu-co.org/news/aclu-supports-student...

The ACLU of New Jersey (2010) submitted an amicus brief in support of a public school student's right to express her religious beliefs about abortion by wearing an armband with the word "LIFE" on it.
http://www.aclu-nj.org/news/2010/03/24/aclu-n...

The ACLU of Alaska (2010) advised the Alaska Department of Education to respect the religious freedom of Russian Old Believer families by arranging alternate testing dates for the High School Graduation Qualifying Exam, which conflicts with Holy Week for Russian Old Believer students.

If anything is, or can be, certain, the writers of the Bible were mistaken about creation, astronomy, geology; about the causes of phenomena, the origin of evil and the cause of death.
Now, it must be admitted that if an infinite Being is the author of the Bible, he knew all sciences, all facts, and could not have made a mistake.
and the author is?
Just a couple corrections to many idiotic claims you make.

The very first verse noted the Big Bang, a beginning point for the universe, 5,000 years before atheists caught up.

The very first chapter noted life coming from the earth and beginning in a genderless form.

This info was recorded by Moses as dictated by the Alien visitor who prophecied a band of former slaves would survive no matter what and become the greatest culture on earth.

Does that answer your question?

There is no constitutional prohibition of teachers leading prayers.

If you can show it to me, or any basis for it, I will mail you a cashiers check for $10,000.00.
