#1 "There is no truth except Allah" and "Allah is the only eternal and immortal." , Wieland distributed translated lyrics.

I'd call that promoting religion, Banned by federal Statute.

It may be argued that since Islam is not really a religion---the way your framers understood the concept---no Statute was violated.

And since it's not a religion we can ban it.

#6 A little background on the composer, A.R. Rahman, who is a Qadiriyya Sufi Muslim.

"Described as the world's most prominent and prolific film composer by Time, his works are notable for integrating eastern classical music with electronic music sounds, world music genres and traditional orchestral arrangements. He has won two Academy Awards, two Grammy Awards, a BAFTA Award, a Golden Globe, four National Film Awards, fifteen Filmfare Awards, thirteen Filmfare Awards South in addition to numerous other awards and nominations.

"Working in India's various film industries, international cinema and theatre, Rahman has sold more than 300 million records worldwide of his film scores and soundtracks as of 2009 for over 100 film scores worldwide, making him one of the world's all-time top selling recording artists."

#7 "There is no truth except Allah"
"there is no G*d but Allah"
Both are rendered by the same Arabic phrase.

#8 "Choral music is often devoted to religious themes. ... This is not a case where the school is endorsing or promoting any particular religion...The song was chosen because its rhythms and other qualities would provide an opportunity to exhibit the musical talent and skills of the group in competition, not because of its religious message..."

-well, if you were hell-bent on doing some middle-eastern sounding shit why not just go all out and do "kashmir" by Led Zeppelin...idiot dhimmis...Good for this kid to drop that choir.
