That was my point.My post was meant to refute the previous poster's assertion that prayer is okay because congress has been doing it every morning.
And yet they have not stopped this and many more religous actions the government undertakes. There are cases that I would agree conflicts with the 1st and the courts would be right to overturn those actions. Such as if the guv had stated that all government employee's had to stop what they were doing at 2:00 and pray for rain. He did nothing of the sort though.As the court rulings I cited back up, the notion that something is "okay to do because we've always done it that way" is flawed logic.
