another example where the evangelicals are outraged that their attempts at proselytization will not be subsidized by the federal government:
so, no one is being denied the opportunity to pray. a moment of silence is observed to give those who desire to pray the opportunity to do so... On Thursday, the usual open prayer before meals at the center was traded in for a moment of silence.
Rutherford said the moment of silence was introduced to protect that funding. He said although the change may have been misinterpreted, perhaps his company could have done a better job selling it.
"It's interpreted that we're telling people that they can't pray, but we aren't saying that," he said. "We're asking them to pray to themselves. Have that moment of silence." ...
what is pissing off the evangelicals is that they no longer get to subject all of the guests to a PUBLIC prayer of their choosing
if there was a public sunni moslem prayer being offered, or a jewish prayer being publicly said before a predominently Christian group, no doubt the evangelicals ould also have their panties in a wad about that ... and then they would have gotten it right
