    Then don't ask for government food.

    Why is the OPTION for private prayer some form of imposition or unconstitutional?

    I believe congressional houses have chaplains....but I am all for prayer there, in the off chance that one of them might be influenced by the prayer and remember to represent the people and not the lobbiests...

    Being Catholic I might be able to add a little perspective, not knowing the religious breakdown I'll stab in the dark here.

    Christian prayer, especially Catholic prayer is very social, I can remember my aunts taking long retreats at great personal sacrifice to reflect on the nature of what we believe, to this day anytime I visit them early morning they have a televised prayer program with the Rosary going on. It's not about anything more than the vibe of being in communion with your fellows in worship and it is very meaningful to those of us who believe.

    What about religious tolerance towards atheists? Why do some religious people hate atheists? If they hate them then they should be glad that atheists are going to hell, right?

    Huh? I don't hate atheists. I don't respect atheists in certain groups that decide to attack other people's intelligence for believing, but there are plenty of athiests I respect in fact some of them are here on this site.

    You are right I should have put the word "some" in front of my remark.

    There, fixed it.

    To be honest, there are intolerant people on all sides, of all views.

    It's these people who draw the ire of those who hold the views that are receiving intolerance. Unfortunately, there is often over-generalization from some on the receiving end of these injustices, which leads to more intolerance (from them this time) and the cycle continues on and on and on.

    I agree. It's like a nuclear chain reaction.
