An unlikely union
Separation of church and state apparently doesn't include the Buddhist practice of transcendental meditation. According to California Catholic Daily elementary schools are being inundated with meditation sessions to promote inner peace, angering both religious and atheist parents and creating an unlikely union between these two groups in fighting this agenda. The schools support the practice, wanting to "relieve the stresses of the world" for their students, thereby achieving a higher learning potential. I wonder if overdoses of Ritalin just aren't working for them anymore.
