High school football and Ramadan

From ESPN, a high school football team in Michigan moved its pre-season practices from daytime to night time because many of its players are Muslim and it's currently Ramadan. Personally, I think this is a great example of a school accommodating a religious group. I think, generally speaking, people are supportive of this idea. I haven't seen a whole lot of ruckus about this in the news.

I can only imagine though--if this school was accommodating a group of Christian students rather than Muslims--wouldn't the ACLU and every other atheist organization in the country be threatening First Amendment lawsuits and barking about separation of church and state?
