A lawsuit seeking to block a state law mandating a minute of silence in Texas schools each day to ‘reflect, pray [or] meditate’ in the classroom has been thrown out of court by a federal judge.
U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn on Friday upheld the constitutionality of the law, ruling that the ‘primary effect of the statute is to institute a moment of silence, not to advance or inhibit religion.’
Agreed. It’s not as if Texas is mandating prayer, much less a specific form of prayer.
The leftist ACLU disagrees with that ruling — for reasons that should be quite obvious.
BTW, that judge was nominated by Bill Clinton. Go figure.
Here’s a link to the local print media’s story.
