The best way to get food labeled is to ask for it. Call or email the manufacturer, and tell them you want a product that is certified GMO free. If enough people want to buy it, they'll make it and label it. Just look at the organic industry, and more recently the gluten free industry. Heck, you can buy a soda that is 'gluten free'.

Hopefully some people who have had experience with the other side of the drunk driving equation will have the opportunity to educate Iya. Having to face victims in public discourse might just be the best medicine she can get.

What's interesting is that a direct response to a point is taken by the author of the original point as a change of subject. Maybe we should have stayed on the subject in the first place? How do we tell if it's your right to have your after school prayerathon, or my kid's right to not be preyed on? I wish I had a better answer than "I know it when I see it", but this one sure stinks.

The 'Bibles in Schools' is from a West Virginia Federal case: Peck vs. Upshur County Board of Education (I was going to post a link but the Independent isn't letting me. You'll have to use your search engine of choice)
"In elementary schools, the concerns animating the coercion principle are at their strongest because of the impressionability of young elementary-age children"
As for your 6 men being American Christians, I'm not sure Jessica Ahlquist would be so relieved.

I'd be bothered less if this were high school. The courts make a distinction between elementary and high school, and hold elementary schools to a higher standard for no proselytizing activity. Gideons can donate bibles to high schools e.g., but not elementary schools. Although other religions hasn't been tested in court to my knowledge, I assume the school policy would have to be open to all religions. A school in Buncombe County NC changed their policy about accepting religious books rather than accept donated Pagan books.
I think the fact that it's on school property, albeit 'after' school is bothersome. There must be plenty of non-school spaces they could rent for Christian kids to have their Christian activities. But they're not doing this for kids who are already Christian. They're trying to convert the rest of the kids.

@billclausenYour 'six burly men' scenario was put to the late Christopher Hitchens.
Q: If you were in a strange city one evening and saw a few men coming toward you, would you feel more or less safe knowing they just came from a prayer meeting?
Hitchens: “Just to stay within the letter ‘B,’ I have actually had that experience in Belfast, Beirut, Bombay, Belgrade, Bethlehem, and Baghdad. In each case I can say absolutely, and can give my reasons, why I would feel immediately threatened if I thought that the group of men approaching me in the dusk were coming from a religious observance.”
