    Don't exaggerate.

    How's that an exaggeration?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    If your not disturbing anyone else, you can prayer out loud. But as there is usually others who also have rights, being polite is not too much to ask. The law states that state employees can't lead a prayer. There is nothing preventing students other than the rights of others to not be annoyed. So, he's exaggerating a lot.

    Disneydude already qualified his statement, which is to say people should be able to pray in universities anytime they like so long as they are not disruptive. I pretty much agree with that statement for public universities, private universities should do as they please.

    How is wearing a cross different than sporting a confederate flag? One person thinks their interpretation of the symbol is the only one that is valid and they don't take any time to think of how their hateful symbols affect others. People have ancestors who were brutalized and oppressed over both symbols. She needs to save the crosses for her church. Universities should be bastions of inclusion and welcomeness for diverse individuals.

    WTF are you talking about? I...ME....Myself....I support the right of anybody to pray to themselves in private. Why do they need to "open their mouths"....so that they can be like the Pharisees who love to stand on the corners and pray so that others can see how "spiritual" they are? Puh-lease

    No...when I worked at the ACLU we filed suit on behalf of a bible study group to use school facilities after school hours, like other campus groups....they are free to pray in public if they feel the need...but not at a school sanctioned function, unless they do so privately.
