Hmm... unless I missed something, I think Zondor's point was that he was opposed to prayer in public schools.


I was looking at the "... or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.' part.

If I was incorrect...belay my last...

The fed should take these garbage and jam it up their rear end. Did they just took away our free speech?

Where is this country going?

When I was in bootcamp, we prayed every night, not just one religion, any person can be a prayer for their religions.

This is just unbelievable.

If everyone had your view.. it would not be an issue... however, at a Texas High School... a Muslim Student group asked if they could say their prayers ... the parents (Non Muslim) went ballistic...

I think this is a problem with Christianity in general. They always try to drill the idea it is either you believe in them or you go to hell. There is no other choice. You are either with them or against them. I used to go to church / Sunday school, and that basically sum up what they teach every time I was there.

I know what you are talking about ... I live in Texas...

But in the interest of fair and balanced reporting... Did they ever tell you to kill a cartoonist for something he drew...

The thing I never understand about these prayer controversies is why people feel the need to pray before a captive audience in the first place.

If you want to pray, just sit there in your seat and pray. Why the need to put it on the official agenda?

The only motive I can imagine for why a religious group would feel the need to put a prayer on the program is that they want other people to see them praying. Prayer as social status. Kind of creeps me out.

You are SPOT ON

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.


Matthew 6:5-6


"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." --- "Therefore, I Believe it and I will see it. And every day and in every way, I am healthier, wealthier, and wiser."

Texas and Virginia have a lot in common in this regard. Capital punishment too. I did some death penalty appellate work one summer and Virginia is #2 to your great state in the number of executions.

Well ... if Virginia didn't insist on only sending guilty people to death row... they could have caught up to Texas by now...
