This is pathetic: "Some public schools and universities are granting Muslim requests for prayer times, prayer rooms and ritual foot baths, prompting a debate on whether Islam is being given preferential treatment over other religions."
Three words sum this up: Establishment Clause violation. Now I want to see the ACLU and other organizations attack these schools for promoting Islam as a favored religion. This is not a Free Exercise Clause issue -- there are no impediments to Muslim worship that the schools eradicate with these perquisites. Instead, the schools are specifically favoring one religion over others. That's unconstitutional.
