According to the bill, which the Democratic-controlled House passed despite unanimous Republican opposition, funds are prohibited from being used for the "modernization, renovation, or repair" of facilities that allow "sectarian instruction, religious worship or a school or department of divinity."

I read this as saying that it isn't school sponsored or employed, it is just that students choose to have some sort of religous or faith activities. If this is the case then if at any school any time a time of worship of some sort begins does that school lose federal funding.

The time for worship is in the privacy of your own home, in your church as the case may be, or in another group setting outside of school.

School is a place for learning skills that apply to the real world. Religion is not one of those things and does not belong in a place of learning where there are surely people who do not hold the same beliefs.

We can choose our religion or lack thereof, it should not be a part of our daily lives unless we wish to subscribe to those ideas.

So do you believe the Military Academies should not be allowed to have Chapels paid for at government expense?

Or for that matter, what if the student is getting a degree in religious studies?

the first amendment, look it the hell up. read jefferson's words on why he wrote the original bill in 1777 and what he meant by it. it's high school level government. you might already know if you didn't spend high school praying instead of learning.

Okay now that we're on the same page, if schools begin to halt these actions for fear of losing funding, then that is an infringement upon those said students civil rights.

Faith is something that applies to the real world for those involved just because you don't subscribe to it doesn't mean it doesn't matter to those who do.
