High school 'Muslim prayer room' challenged

This is an update of a post I did the other day.  A prayer room needs to be created for Christian students
or the Muslim prayer rooms needs to be shut down immediately.  Interestingly, Liberals have created a situation whereby prayer can be brought back into the public schools nationally.  I'm sure the Libs in that high school in Texas weren't considering that when they made an accommodation for Muslims students they weren't willing to make foe Christians if asked.       

WND reports for at least 30 minutes every weekday for the past seven years, a classroom at Liberty High School in Frisco, Texas, gets transformed into an on-campus mosque.
At least a dozen students use the “Muslim prayer room” between 2:05 and 2:35 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Controversy over the prayer room was sparked by an article in the student newspaper, the Wingspan, which clearly laid out how the room is used and by whom.
 That prompted State Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, to instruct one of his deputies to send a letter to the school district warning that special accommodations for one religion over another are unconstitutional.

“Liberty High School’s policy should be neutral toward religion,” read the letter sent to Frisco’s superintendent by Deputy Attorney General Andrew Leonie. “However, it appears that students are being treated different based on their religious beliefs. Such a practice, of course, is irreconcilable with our nation’s enduring commitment to religious liberty.”
