    Florida Pastor to Defy Prayer Ban | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes

    Really? It's a violation of the Constitution? Where? In the so called "Separation of Church and State that is NO WHERE IN THE CONSTITUION??

    So, according to the court, Teachers don't have first amendment rights. Thank you liberals!

    I can't agree with you although I would like to, samurai. The teacher can pray at any free time she has from the children. Just as anyone from a completely different faith can do their praying in private when they have the chance. Freedom to pray is not restricted, just not appropriate with the students.

    Show me where it says that in the Constitution?

    THAT is your personal opinion, NOT the Constitution.

    So, show me where that is in the Constittution.

    I wasn't aware a Teacher was "Congress" which is the ONLY body I see restricted in any way by the First Amendment.

    Subsequently, Everson v. Board of Education (1947) incorporated the Establishment Clause (i.e., made it apply against the states). However, it was not until the middle to late twentieth century that

    the Supreme Court began to interpret the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses in such a manner as to restrict the promotion of religion by the states. In the Board of Education of Kiryas Joel Village School District v. Grumet, 512 U.S. 687 (1994), Justice David Souter, writing for the majority, concluded that "government should not prefer one religion to another, or religion to irreligion."[1]

    First of all it's not the "Liberals". It's called the Constitution. Keep in mind that the ACLU has sued schoool districts in the past to ALLOW students to hold Bible studies and prayer groups.

    And the ACLU cannot "ban" anything. It takes a court of law.

    Having said that I don't think that teachers are violating the Constitution by participating in a prayer session unless they are leading the prayer. That would be an "establishment of religion" and that would indeed be against the law and one of the things that the Constitution protects us from.

    I think we learned how much liberals hate to have their own fascism toward the freedom of expression or religion exposed.

    If you so schmart, show us the wording in the Constitution. Where does it say a teacher cannot pray?

    Psst!

    That's not wording in the Constituion. That's a USSC opinion.

    The USSC once said that it was okay to keep slaves, and that Seperate but equal was okay.

    Did that mean it was in the Constitution?

    No sorry, I'M ASKING FOR THE WORDS IN THE CONSTITUTION.

    Not some judge legislating his own religious bigotries from the bench.
