    I'm not going through loops, hoops, or chicken coops.

    You refuse to acknowledge the very clear distinction. Try to respond to what I actually say and not what you wish I said.

    That doesn't mean our founding fathers approved of infringing on the freedom of religion of others.

    You mean like saying prayer in school is "unconstitutional" I'm sure they'd agree with that. Really.

    State sanctioned prayer...

    Students praying independently of their own free will in school is not unconstitutional. It would be unconstitutional to stop them from doing that, which is what you are suggesting we do.

    Do you support MrV's demand for Muslims to adapt to the 21st century by citing 18th and 19th century policies?

    The election of the Rev. William Linn as Chaplain of the House on May 1, 1789, continued the tradition established by the Continental Congresses of each day's proceedings opening with a prayer by a chaplain. The early chaplains alternated duties with their Senate counterparts on a weekly basis. The two conducted Sunday services for the Washington community in the House Chamber every other week.

    Since the election of Rev. Linn in 1789, the House has been served by chaplains of various religious denominations, including Baptist (7), Christian (1), Congregationalist (2), Disciples of Christ (1), Episcopalian (4), Lutheran (1), Methodist (16), Presbyterian (15), Roman Catholic (1), Unitarian (2), and Universalist (1).

    The House of Representatives disagrees.

    Not sure, I haven't read that far back in the thread. What 18th and 19th century policies does he want to force them to adapt to?

    ... Why are you posting the exact same crap that was refuted three pages ago?

    Separation of church and state in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    While sometimes questioned as possible violations of separation, the appointment of official chaplains for government functions, voluntary prayer meetings at the Department of Justice outside of duty hours, voluntary prayer at meals in U.S. armed forces, inclusion of the (optional) phrase "so help me God" in the oaths for many elected offices, FBI agents, etc., have been held not to violate the First Amendment, since they fall within the realm of free exercise of religion.

    It's sad when the average American can't even tell what is a violation of the 1st Amendment or not.
