    Calm down. It was some petty little university jerk who instituted the rule, which was reversed the instant his jerkery was made public. Truly much ado about nothing.

    Oh I am very calm, always am. Don't get hysterical.

    The larger point is how this petty little university jerk, as you call him, got in the position as to what religious symbols people could or could not wear. Who gave the authorization.

    Just another attack on the status quo of America being a Christian Nation.

    My response, to the administration of the Sonoma State University would not be printable in this forum. Suffice to say they could kiss my ars.

    And now everyone knows he's a petty little jerk. Why do you care who "gave the authorization?"

    Yes. A grand attack indeed.

    My biology doesn't allow me to roll my eyes as much as your statement deserves.

    Never said it was a grand attack but a attack is an attack regardless.

    If the rule was motivated by anti-religious zeal instead of pettiness and short-sightedness the university wouldn't have backtracked at Mach 50 like they did.

    disney did say that students had the right to pray anytime they wanted, but silently. He asserted that to pray out loud would be disruptive. That is a crock. So when adpst said what he said to have Boo call it exaggerating was incorrect. adpst was exactly right in his assertion as to what disney said. I guess technically you could pray out loud without opening your mouth, but I'd like to see it.

    To Joe, you're right being polite is not too much to ask, and if someone is praying, the polite thing to do if you don't want to hear it is to move along. As for this supposed "right" to not be annoyed, show me where this is in the bill of rights, I don't believe I've seen that...

    To Mike, and Joe - The key here hinges on what is "disruptive"? If a student, or student group stands up in the middle of a class, and interrupts the teacher with prayer, then yes, I would agree that is disruptive. But, if you have that same group, saying a prayer in the quad before starting their day, and you don't like it? So what? move along...The problem is not that they are trying to impose anything on either of you, but rather the other way around, you're trying to quash their practice, thereby imposing your beliefs on them.
    Context......geesh........seriously dude....

    JMAC....you are being ridiculous. You have such a chip on your shoulder that it makes you quick to knee-jerk without taking it in context. The point being that a student is free to pray anywhere and anytime they want so long as it is not disruptive. A better choice of word would have been "Quietly" not "silently'...however if you use a little bit of context you would have understood. However, I think sometimes people want to jump into attack mode so quick that they lose complete focus of the conversation.
