    I think what should be done is allow for a moment of silence. Students could pray, daydream or quietly pick their noses.
    Everyone would have equal time.
    I think we should also have the Pledge of Allegiance in schools on a voluntary basis.

    Lots of schools have already implemented this with morning announcements, and I honestly don't see anything wrong with it.

    It is voluntary. You cannot be forced to recite the pledge in school.

    All the more reason we should get the federal government out of our schools.

    It goes beyond that:

" 6"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

    You're right, they have more. People like you helped destroy that. The restriction is on the CONGRESS establishing a religion, says nothing about prayers in schools or other such.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
