    Perhaps you can read the response again and try to understand what is being said. I know short answers often suit those of limited intelligence but sometimes comprehension is important as well.

    More like he's smart enough to not leave it at a simple yes or no. Such a response leaves it open for you or someone else to twist the intent and meaning behind the answer into something he is not saying or meaning.

    No need for a personal attack.

    I agree

    Often the best answer to a trap question is to qualify it

    Your community standards argument does not override the constitution
    If our own government in Congress is allowed to pray, then so should local institutions like public shcools. Liberal court rulings are an insane interpretation of seperation of church and state and the 14th due process clause.

    If the 14th didn't allow public school prayer, then the SC justices would have enacted this back at least by the 1870's.

    But no, they cannot lead students in prayer.
    Because their constitutional free speech rights have been stripped.

    Commies of the world rejoice!

    Honestly, the congress should not be allowed to pray while in session. Its a violation of the first amendment.

    Also the 1870s was a time where people readily let culture override legalities (in this case, the clear wording of the first amendment), while there may be legal precedence, I take it with a grain of salt.

    Their right to free speech, to pray, to exercise their religious beliefs---and especially, the popular faith of their communites has been stripped away.
