Just say no Society long ago reconciled itself to a bright line between religion and academics in public school classrooms. The courts recognized that even when students aren't obliged to pray at specific times, the pressure to conform exerts a powerful coercive influence. Now nine midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis who object to the school's traditional lunchtime prayer have asked the American Civil Liberties Union for help ending the practice, which they say forces them to risk losing the respect of their peers or forgoing leadership opportunities if they follow their conscience.

Colorado Springs, Colo.-- --From the moment new cadets arrive at the U.S. Air Force Academy, the message is made abundantly clear. They attend classes in small groups, separated by gender, and learn the meaning of terms like "bystander effect," "non-stranger assault" and "situational awareness." They see video screenings of Frank: The Undetected Rapist. Fliers all over the sprawling, space-age campus bear the numbers 333-SARC, a sexual assault hot line on which cadets can call a trained specialist at any hour to ask questions, seek advice or report sex crimes.

In the ivory towers of academia, free thought is a virtue and authority exists to be questioned. But at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, authority is to be revered and obeyed. For the 221 uniformed members of the teaching faculty, that's not a problem. They readily salute their commanders and heed orders. For the 313 civilian professors, who teach everything from English literature to electrical engineering and often come from a culture that favors the free exchange of views, it can be a source of tension.

The Anti-Defamation League, arguing that the lunchtime prayer at the U.S. Naval Academy violates the separation of church and state, says it will ask Congress and the secretary of the Navy to stop the practice. The group sent a letter last month to the academy in Annapolis but has received no formal reply, said Myrna Shinbaum, a spokeswoman for the organization devoted to fighting anti-Semitism and other discrimination. "We will continue to make our concerns known through the Armed Services Committee of the Senate and House, as well as with the secretary of the Navy, and continue to raise the issue in the public arena," she said, declining to be more specific.

From the oval-shaped windows of an airplane, Maryland looked enough like Belize that for a moment, teenagers Andrea and Javier Bosch forgot about the lush landscape and glittering beaches of their Central American homeland.
