2 Students Sue California College District for Threatening to Suspend Them for Praying

Two California students can sue their community college district after their school threatened to suspend them for praying on campus, a federal judge ruled.

Kandy Kyriacou and Ojoma Omaga said the College of Alameda accused them of "disruptive behavior" after they had prayed with an ailing teacher in a faculty office in December of 2007, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The students said the school issued suspension notices to them.

Although public colleges are prohibited from endorsing religion, U.S. District Judge Susan Illston ruled that the women can proceed with a lawsuit against Peralta Community College District.

The district's attorneys argued that faculty offices were "places for teaching and learning and working" not "protests, demonstrations, prayer" or other disruptive activities.

Whoa, wait a minute...only leftist demonstrations and protests are allowed, remember?  Anything "hateful and offensive" from the right wing, like crosses for murdered babies or Christian groups, are always attacked by the "diversity" police.

College and universities are supposed to be free marketplaces of ideas. If those students were disrupting any classes or whatever, I might see things differently, but it seems like they just wanted to pray with their teacher, and the teacher was agreeable. Somebody overreacted, big time.

I'd love to see the students use the free speech zone for prayer......................the free speech loonies will go nuts seeing as how they hold these areas a bastion for their lefty rants.
