Minnesota: Muslims at Apple Valley High School get prayer time during school

At Apple Valley High School, south of St. Paul, Principal Stephen Degenaar said that his school’s Muslim population has gone from five to about 100 since he arrived at the district in 1994. “We may be the only school out here right now that’s doing prayer time during the day,” he said.

As word of this spread in the community, Degenaar said he got phone calls from people who asked about the practice but concluded, “Well, since our Christian kids have had the FCA club for over 25 years here, and we have an active Bible study club going on, why should we not allow the Muslim kids to have the same opportunity?”

“I feel like me missing my prayers is something that I’ll feel down about,” he said. “Five times, just to remember your Lord, the God that created you … almost an hour a day is not a lot.”

But Degenaar recently suspended prayer time for Muslim students at Apple Valley, except for Friday prayers, because some students were violating the rules. He said they were wandering the hallways and playing on their phones instead of praying.

The move upset more religious students, who said they shouldn’t be punished for the acts of a few. The principal said prayer may be brought back by the spring.

  1. Total B S! It needs to be our way or the highway!

  2. are beliefs other than muslim granted the same privileges as the muslims????? certainly not, they are infidels who the muzzies would kill at a moments notice. this is a horrible precedent from dhimmitude persuasion. wake up folks; these assholes will stop at nothing to get their way; muslims will NEVER assimilate.

  3. Pray on your own time! I’ll bet the Christian club and Bible study are not taking class time away. Muslim prayer is disruptive – probably done that way on purpose. This is a deep and ancient evil (Babylonian ) Don’t buy into it!

  4. Shameful of these muslim brotherhood members and sympathizers!!

    The evil sharia law is UNCONSTITUTIONAL in our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America!!

    United We Stand with Israel-Yisrael and our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America, Divided We FALL!!

    Love Always and Shalom Everyone,

  5. What? Wandering the hallways and playing on their phones during prayer time! Recently some students in ISIS territory were killed for doing that very thing.

    When (not “if” ) Sharia is the law of America I bet those students will behave or else!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
