    CNS News is not a very reliable source.

    Soooo... video of Pelosi saying it makes it unreliable ????

    Did they put a CGI Pelosi in the video, or maybe a ventriloquist???

    Personally, I lean toward the ventriloquist and dummy Pelosi scenario.

    What is accomplished by having someone lead it, out loud, that would not be accomplished by praying silently on an individual basis?
    See comment above.

    Prayer might not matter to you, and that is fine Cat. But who the hell are you to tell someone else they can't pray how they see fit? They said grace before a meal. Somehow that is offensive to you, even though your not even in attendance.

    Believe it or not Cat, people do pray in private as well as in public in groups. Its not a new thing. You may not have use for it, but maybe you could show a little maturity and respect for those who do.

    Ah, so, you liberals are happy to help the unfortunate, but only if they act how you want them to act.

    Why is the OPTION for private prayer some form of imposition or unconstitutional?
    Because the OPTION of group prayer was being DENIED to them.

    However, the organization in question quickly realized that this denial was stupid and baseless. I wonder how long it will take you to figure that out.

    Actually, no. I think they should act however they want - if they want private support. If you'd read all my posts in this thread, I've already pointed out a privately funded charity that kicked out a Jew because he wouldn't pray to Jesus. I think that's terrible; but since it's completely privately funded, they can do what they want.

    If you take government assistance, you take rules along with it.

    Sorry, but that's the fact.

    A silent prayer OPTION is a true OPTION. A group-led prayer is forced upon everyone who attends.

    One takes nothing away from anyone. The other provides only the option of what the majority of the group thinks and damns everyone else.

    Why is decency and privacy such an imposition? It's only an imposition to those who like to force their beliefs upon everyone around them.

    If the government is going to support an organization, then said organization shouldn't focus a moment of prayer upon one groups interpretation of one religion. Do they do Buddhist prayers? Jewish prayers?

    A moment of silence allows everyone to do as they wish - not limiting anyone's religious expression. A group prayer forces those not a part of the group to participate in a prayer they may or may not believe in.

    What? You must be kidding.... It's a clip of her, in her own words!

    My God, have we come to a point where seeing someone say something, hearing it with our own ears, and capturing it on tape is no longer proof that someone said what they said? I guess as long as liberals control the spin....
