So... it only took one parent with the lawyers to REMOVE PRAYER, what's next, let's say my daughter decides she will have her CIVIL RIGHTS violated "if" she can't become a well trained and educated stripper while in her DRAMA class, at Central Magnet, or any other PUBLIC school for that matter???? Where does all of this "pure foolishness EVER end?"

Outrageous... as Dr. King said "by the CONTENT of CHARACTOR!!" Please folks, this is NO place of sexual ORINTATION nor is it the ACLU or "TEACHERS" place to allow or expect such evils to be allowed ANYWHERE in the PUBLIC arena, period!! All schools should be a safe space, regardless of this trash!! NOT ROCKET SCIENCE HERE, only liberal minded scam artist, that's it... shame on ANY minister who claims to appease such filth!!! Miley Cyrus is the "perfect" example of liberalism!!

First of all, prayer has not been removed. It just cannot be school-sponsored. As long as a student isn't infringing the rights of others by being disruptive, that student can pray all they like.

Stripper training is not a civil right, so you need not worry about that.

"Character" doesn't have an "o" in it.

As far as free speech on other topics, such as sexual orientation, you seem to have no idea where the legal lines are drawn. Religion in the public schools is subject to the Establishment clause. Non-prurient information about sexual orientation is not subject to that standard, so your comparison is meaningless.

The rest of your post just further underscores your ignorance.

Prayer is still allowed, it just cannot be endorsed by the school. These posters are here to help out students who are confronted with bigots like yourself. They need to know that there are safe places from such hatred.

The only thing outrageous here is you quoting Dr. King while opposing equal rights. One thing you don't seem to realize is that he was FOR equal rights for homosexuals as well. His right hand man Bayard Rustin was even openly gay! Shame on YOU for promoting such hate yet claiming to be on the good side. Miley Cyrus is the "perfect" example of liberalism like Catholic priests are the "perfect" example of conservatism.
