And now I won't think of anything else, either. Dang.

I think we, the increasingly multi-religious (including non-religious) societies need to learn how to live with that fact without making a fuss over such issues as religious songs, religious symbols etc. When someone wants to perform some song which is not outright insulting to any group (which a religious song, in my opinion, could only be if it were saying something along the lines of any other belief being inferior etc.) then I honestly don't see what could be the issue with that.
I'm not religious at all, and don't believe in anything out there, but I cannot start crying out loud every time I see a cross or hear a religious song anywhere. That's really going way too far, and in my very own view is outright pathetic.

That is sad. Much of classical music has it's roots in the Church especially choral music. You can't just ban it all. Art and religion have gone hand in hand for so long. I cannot believe anyone would be offended over a performance of Ave Maria.

Yes. Seriously, I'm the most pro-separation of church and state person you are likely to find, but if we hadn't been able to sing sacred choral works when I was in high school choir, our selection would have been pretty limited and dumbed-down.

Plus, the girl wants the instrumental version of the song played. No one would know what the song is about (even though its in Latin) since there are no lyrics being sung.

Even if sung with lyrics, and even if those lyrics were in English I couldn't really see that as an excuse. You really have to be able to live in a society where different views are present and accepted. If this girl were known to the school and classmates to be preaching and looking to convert people all the time, then I could see it as a legitimate action trying to stop her here. But that's not in the article, so I guess her intentions are rather honest.
It reminds me of how Belgium just last year abolished all crosses in public, as to not to offend anyone of another religion. Come on, you are living in a country where the Christian church is still prominent! There you get to see Christian symbols in some places. Doesn't mean they are out to get you, or demean you.
But at the same time you have the Swiss abolishing minarettes, or idiots in Germany trying to stop mosques.

Well, it seems to me that the guy on the Supreme Court that takes his orders from the Vatican got outnumbered. So basically I'm fine with this judgement.
