    I even do not have an issue with a prayer meeting at school, as long as it is not during school hours and that it is purely on voluntary basis. It also has to allowed/open to all other groups. Vocal prayer messages during school hours is not OK IMHO.

    People should be able to be religious if they want to be and other people should be able to not be religious if they want to be. Atheists should try not to unduly bother religious people and religious people should not unduly bother non-religious people.

    No, usually atheists are never bothered by Hinduism and with only a limited amount of Islamic interference, it is usually down to Christians in Western democracies who are the biggest problem for atheists.

    Muslims do not have much influence so there is a lot less reason to criticize them other than denouncing their views (which atheists actually do).

    Well, thank you for your permission.

    I would even not have an issue with given a moment before class to say a silent and personal prayer. I am objecting to it being done over the intercom/pa system at schools.
    1. Where is this done? Do you have an example? Or is it the boogeyman you want to keep in the closet?

    2. Do you also object to the opening prayer in congress? How about the ten commandments being depicted in the SCOTUS?

    So you would hate Christmas and Easter then. Must be difficult times. Perhaps a way of eliminating this 'hate' is to bring the love of your fellow man into your heart. You can do this by attending a Church and paying some attention to the teachings of Jesus.

    On their person property? No. Huge symbols and obnoxious display on public land? You have 2 options, all (and The Rock means ALL) or nothing.

    Atheists, you can't trust them. They are trying to destroy Christianity while promoting Islam through devious, backdoor means.

    Yes, they tendto be more aware of Christianity so they tend to focus on them. Their disinterest in religion makes it difficult for them to learn the different beliefs in varying religions so they pick on the closest at hand.
    Muslims do not have much influence so there is a lot less reason to criticize them other than denouncing their views (which atheists actually do).
    The reason, or alleged reason, people are being stripped down at airports and having their phone calls traced, and being spied on by cameras on street corners, is because of Muslims. They are also attacking villages, and even airports, throughout the world. If you think Islam is not effecting your life you should read something other than the MSM.
