Why would they? There is nothing in the Bible which requires Christians to carry guns (though prayer and evangelizing are, and they are TOTALLY banned in schools) plus it gives them the moral ground to show how peaceful Muslims are--despite Sikhism not being Islamic.

Personally, I have no issue whatsoever with a Sikh carrying a dagger to school, a Muslim in traditional garb, or a Jew wearing a yamaka or the latter two having the option of a halal/kosher meal. All provided, of course, the Christian kids (or any others) are allowed to show signs of their own faith.

Or not forcing kids to say god in the pledge?

What about forcing them to say the pledge period?

I would prefer that over removing "God" only because the pledge contains it, and I'm of the opinion that if you're going to memorize or repeat something it should be done in its entirety. Whether or not it originally did or did not at some point in history, right now it does.

That's my point. If one religion can practice their tenets, all should be able to. This school has give a special privilege to Sikhs; other schools do so only for Christians. Nothing should be done that marginalizes any faith or non-faith.

Actually the test should work the other way around. If it's a question of marginalization then the problem becomes who is the arbiter and how can that be applied fairly across so many faiths or no faith at all? A better and easier to deal with way would be "Does it interfere with an environment conducive to learning?" In that case, Mohammad can pack a nice halal lunch, Ira can wear his Yarmulke and Matthew can say grace before lunch because it in no way keeps their fellow students from getting an education. (If it offends their class mates, tough shit) The problem here is that a special concession is made for one faith and not for others. Are you going to let the Muslim kids leave class for prayers? The dagger violates the moronic "No knife" policy, either everyone can have a knife or noone can.

I like how they say the knife is okay so long as it is concealed keeping kids from seeing it and getting freaked out. If a concealed knife is ok then why not a concealed handgun?

In light of this revelation I say that we establish a new religion based around firearms. Our deity can be John Moses Browning and we could have our patron saints can be, John Cantius Garand, Mikhail Kalashnikov, Eugene Stoner, Gaston Glock (since he's still living he can be our living prophet) etc. Obviously several of these men were divinely inspired by the holy ghost of Browning to come up with their intelligent designs. Our religious paraphernalia (firearms, ammo, reloading equipment, accessories etc) shall no longer be taxable and the price of our weapons and associated equipment will drop in price drastically. We may erect a place of worship (shooting ranges) wherever we please without EPA interference. Body armor, chest rigs and things of that sort will be our canonical regalia for our clergy members and followers as a result no laws banning it's use shall be allowed. We can then sue the pants of of the Brady Campaign for their religious persecution and interference with practicing our beliefs. The NFA act and similar pieces of legislation shall be null and void for all followers of our religion (we feel closest to our god Mr. Browning when the full-auto switch is flipped on). Dianne Feinstein shall be imprisoned for her remaining days for her obvious bigotry and hate crimes against our religion. Places like the original Springfield Armory will become hallowed ground and protected. I'm not sure what our religious text should be just yet though..

If the government takes Scientology seriously enough to give them tax exempt status... why not?

This is a religion I can get behind! Anyone with me?
