As a former food service employee of ten years I can semi-understand how this lawsuit is going forward. As a server, you are required to inform people, for example, if a product contains nuts, as nut allergies are among the worst and can result in death. People HAVE been sued over exactly that. What I don't understand about this case is why the waiter didn't inform them of the potency, and why the parents and/or son didn't read the label. If it clearly stated it should only be used diluted, then why would they put it on their food as is? Should parents not be held accountable for their actions and those of their children? The parents are held accountable when a child repeatedly skips school, resulting in fines to the PARENTS. Yet, this nonsense happens and the legal system is basically saying it's ok to pass the blame onto someone else. This lawsuit is ridiculous and reminds me of several years ago when severely overweight people sued McDonald's for being obese after eating too much of their food. We need to be held responsible for our actions instead of blaming someone else when we muff up.
Why not just have a moment of silence instead of actual prayer? Prayer in public schools, as far as I'm concerned, is unconstitutional and the Supreme Court has agreed with this time and time again. Furthermore, all my fellow Christians can have their prayer but what about the other denominations? Either every religion must be represented or no religion must be represented. That's why I'm in favor of a moment of silence. That should be good enough to satisfy everyone spiritually and religiously, and is fair enough to encompass all faiths.
