Why is it they're allowed to pray openly in Congress but WE can't pray openly in a school?
Willow, that is an excellent question! I cannot answer this and waiting for answers myself. If nothing else, we should have a moment of silence for those who wish to pray for the day ahead or a thought for they day that is encouraging and not of biblical content.
Really? My personal opinion is that students should spend more of their time learning to spell while in school. You should be able to appreciate that.
Aside from that obvious observation, my understanding is that students aren't prohibited from praying while at school. It just can't be sanctioned or promoted by the school since the public schools are taxpayer funded. It's not a hard concept to grasp.
There is a lot of hypocrisy inherent in the modern version of separation church/state created by the Supreme Court. There is no concept of separation of church/state in the Constitution. It was invented by FDR appointee Hugo Black, a former KKK member who wrote the majority opinion. Kids today are forced to read the Koran in some liberated areas but would be suspended for even carrying the Bible to school. A Korean War monument with a 40 ft Cross in San Diego was ordered bulldozed because some dumb assed agnostic was offended by it. Schools allow all kinds of craziness after school hours like wikken clubs that pretend to teach witchcraft but Bible studies are universally condemned in the union based public school system.
So is the Congress asswipe. Now answer the question.
I would love for the supreme court to answer the question.
It has been done since the beginning of this Christian nation. Washington is awash with Christian symbols.
Congress still is NOT required to pray even as they're not prohibited from praying.
Now, frankly, I'm not much for being a grammar or spelling cop. But when someone starts a thread about praying in school and ends up misspelling a word in the subject line, I think that person has the wrong priorities.
it would cut into our Libral indoctrination time
Why can't children sacrifice goats to voodoo gods in school?
