    It's probably never a good sign when a security person says, "get the camera!" :lol:

    So, these people went in with the intent on interrupting the opening prayer. They did so in a highly disruptive fashion and were escorted out by security. They then started yelling at security that they were breaking the law. And they expected what exactly to happen? Oh yeah, they had the camera rolling because they knew they'd get a reaction.

    It seems likely to me that that was their intent. They were in the visitors gallery, with a camera, and started disrupting the prayer. Until/unless we're told they had some other reason to be there, it seems most likely that the reason they were there is to disrupt the prayer.

    Did you watch the video? It was rather obvious.

    it's the same tactic that conservative christians use when they want to disrupt something they oppose and make sure they get attention

    ONE religion has no place in government.

    Why should anyone whos not christain HAVE to observe any one religions services in a building paid for by the people?


    NOT EVERY AMERICAN IS A CHRISTIAN!

    Us non Christains own this government too.

    The secularist model conceived by the framers of the US Constitution was a tremendous advancement for the 18th century but now it's clearly showing its age.

    The american society needs to stop treating a 200 year old political document as a Holy Book and clarify, once and for all, that the "free exercise" does not apply to state facilities.
