All through the Bible, God told His chosen people not to give their daughters or sons in marriage to other religions because if they did, the other religion would become part of their life. The Lord our God is a jealous God and does not want to share His people with other God's. If You are a Christian you can pray to God at anytime and that includes being in school. We can pray without ceasing, which means we always have that connection with God (the God of Abraham, Issac and Israel).

In the recent past, many people of other religions have been let in to this country that their god is a physical object or calling to bad spirits or a make up god that makes them feel good or worship the Creation that the real God made.

I believe that Christians should let it be known that if anyone restricts us from praying to our God, that they are violating our God's instructions to have that personal relationship with Him. We should always make God first in our life, in and out of school. God commanded us to go to your neighbor, to your country and to go to the whole World and spread the Good News of the Gospel that His Son, Jesus Christ brought to the whole world in order to have Eternal Life.
