Prayer in School

Fat White Man's Comment and a Story I mention in another previous post on my blog, Oi Vey!, reminds me of a piece of art I would like to make called prayer in School.Prayer in School

You see, I have no problem with prayer in school. The problem does lie in the fact that the US is religiously neutral. This means that one can’t favour one religion or sect over another.

So, I imagine that prayer in school would have an orthodox Jewish kid davening, a Moslem kneeling toward Mecca, a Hare Krishna, a Catholic saying the rosary, a flagellant, a Pentecostal speaking in tongues, a dervish, a snake handler, a Santeria adherent, and so forth. The ideal picture would have loads of the world’s faiths practicing in their own unique ways.

It would be quite a raucous and busy scene!

That’s how I imagine prayer in School!
