I just moved back to St.Louis with my wife and child. My wife is upset with how religious everyone is here and I try to reassure her that we can send our son to public school without fear of people shoving god down his throat. That is until I passed this trailer in front of a public middle school advertising that mass was held there on Sundays at 10 am.
I understand that they may be renting the space from the school and I understand that renting space out is one way that schools make some extra money, however I do not think they should be renting it out to schurches to hold mass. In my opinion this crosses the line of religion in public education. To the students of this school this could even seem like the school is backed by a certain religion or favors a certain religion.
What actions should be taken? Perhaps writing emails to the principal and school district? Informing ACLU? Thoughts?
Attached is the picture I took as evidence. The school is Woerther Elementary in Ballwin, MO. http://www.rockwood.k12.mo.us/woerther/Pages/default.aspx
