Notice that the title of this post, first reported at Young Conservatives, is couched as a question. We are following the lead of our friends at Weasel Zippers, who urge caution insofar as the school has not been identified, raising questions about the validity of the story. If, furthermore, the adorable child appearing in the video below is providing an accurate unprompted account, the school is still entitled to present its side of the story.
Provisos out of the way, watch the video and read the parents’ commentary:
My wife and I were shocked when our 5-year-old daughter began to tell us that someone on staff at her school saw her praying – told her to stop – and said “it is not good”. This is Kindergarten. She was praying to herself for her food, following the biblical values we are working hard to instill in our children. We are so proud of our little princess and as you can see – we continue to affirm [to] her that prayer IS GOOD and that NO ONE can tell her she can’t pray. No doubt we will homeschool going forward.
We live in the United States of America – the land of the free, yet our traditional values and religious freedoms are under assault. This is just a small example.
