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 religious 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 guaranteed of worship
b) Public worship does not amount to a repudiation of the doctrine of the separation of the church 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 inconsistent with the principles upon which our government was founded.

I think the answer is B. The author is saying that public worship doesn't fall under this separation of church and state and threatens the freedom of religion

C is the correct ans.
All other options are out of scope.
The author in his argument links right to worship to the basic freedom of a citizen.. And C does exactly that ...

I guess you are incorrect ...
Is the argument talking about doctrine of separation of church and state ? Where is the issue of freedom in the option that the author is concerned for.
I am just throwing queries that if answered, could be used to determine if B is correct..

At first I though it was B
but then I read the explanation by Amit and believe it is C.

If we allow religious freedom to wane (decrease), our basic freedoms will soon be in jeopardytrouble

The passage stated that teacher are denied their rights. And The government is contradicting its promise of freedom & worship for all.

All points to C.
