Explain how school prayer rulings reflect the constitutional principles of "majority rule and minority rights ".
Well, when you think about prayer in school you have to take into account the fact that most of this country isn’t Christian. You must understand that a MAJORITY of the people are going to try and overrule the fact that in the constitution it states freedom of religion because they feel they are the MAJORITY and the MAJORITY should have the right to change things.
The MINORITY I.E the people that are actually Christians are going to use the things like the Constitution to try and protect they’re rights. So to sum all this up, what it means by majority rule and minority rights is this:
The majority of people are trying to take things out that they don’t like by having the popular rule and the minority of people will try and keep the things they like because it is their right via the constitution.
