A Maryland high school is in the news and under fire for allowing Muslim students with parental permission and good grades to leave class each day for prayer. I'm not aware of any other religion that requires its followers to pray five times a day except Islam. I don't understand what the problem is here.
Some Christians are upset because they aren't allowed to do the same as the Muslin students. The Christians can pray with eyes wide open, heads up or down , while looking folks in the eyes, staring at a wall, or looking out a window. We have free and unrestricted access to the Throne of Mercy anytime we desire to go there. "We don't have to steal away to Jesus".
I believe as a Christian we clearly have prayer advantages over other religious beliefs in public schools and anywhere else for that matter. The Christian is not restricted to prayer at prescribed times each day. Christians may pray as Paul taught on three different occasions, “without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17). This makes me wonder, why do Christians always want- to- be like others? Are we Christians not a unique, specific, radical, distinctive and without equal people?
