Crossing the Constitutional line

DallasNews Religion --

The St. Petersburg Times reports that the principal of a Florida public school decided her students needed some help before they took a state proficiency test.

So at night, she and some of her staff annointed the students' desks with prayer oil.

This had several effects. It offended many non-Christian parents. It got the local ACLU riled up. And it made the desks greasy.

SPTimes story here.

  1. Okay, I've got to 'fess up that I've laid hands upon student's desks and prayed before, but I wasn't stupid enough to TELL anyone I did it.

    Also, yeah, oil on student desks-- stupid stupid stupid. The things barely get cleaned as it is.
