Our government guarantees us the right to worship in any way we want & yet this right is denied daily.School teachers are forbidden to lead all the students in collective prayer even if the great majority of students in the class are religios in one way or the other .The government is contradicting its promise of freedom & worship for all.
The author of the above argument is logically committed to the view that
a)Atheism cannot be considered a religion & so is not protected under any gaurantee of worship
b)Public worship does not amount to a repudiation of the doctrine of the separation of the crurch and state
c)if we allow religious freedom to wane , our basic freedoms will soon be in jeopardy
d)Compelling someone to be present during the prayer does not violate that persons right of freedom of worship
e)Public announcements of atheism are inconsistant with the principles upon which our government was founded.
From the passage, we have "School teachers are forbidden to lead all the students in collective prayer even if the great majority of students in the class are religious in one way or the other". This means there will be some students who are not religious (minority). However, the author does not feel that compelling them to be present during collective prayer is a violation of individual freedom.
