Who said that is what this is about?  You are adding all kinds of agendas to a simple statement that this practice is unfair and illegal.  Who exactly is trying to suppress Christianity here?  Are you not Christian if you can't hear yelled prayers over loudspeakers at football games?  I would say that the Arab community is as Christian as it ever was, and if you think it is helping your religion then why worry about it anyway?

 

Yes, he does have a right to his beliefs, and if not hearing yelled prayers threatens you then by your own logic you are evidently not too secure in your beliefs.  I am not saying you are or not...that is your own logic I am following.  Once again...no one said you can't pray all day for the rest of your life if you want...no one is saying that, and in this country that is supposed to be true for all belief systems.  If I want to believe my avatar is God I can...but I just don't pray to him at school football games over the loudspeaker.  That is fair to everyone and takes nothing from anyone else except the control away from one group to yell at everyone else.
