    What about the beliefs of someone different than their own? Would they have tolerance for that? I think not.
    The only thing that really matters is what the private organization that hands out the subsidized meals decides is the rule.

    If they decided to allow the group prayer, then those who are unhappy with that decision can seek their free (for all intent and purposes) lunch elsewhere.

    If they decided to ban the group prayer, then those who are unhappy with that decision can seek their free (for all intent and purposes) lunch elsewhere.

The fact is that these people were invited to voluntarily pray, which means that those who didn't want to didn't have to, which means that there was no attempt to establish religion. All that means that the seniors had the right to pray, and have it led by someone, and that right was violated.
    No. Those swimming in the communal pool were contaminated by the urinators.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Nice analogy, if it were appropriate. The first amendment allows for the freedom of religion....that would include the right to pray as well as assembly the exercise of said right, which includes the rites involved. Many religions are done in a communal manner. The government assistance cannot invalidate that right.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
