    You can do whatever you want, but do it on your own time. Doing it on my time is requiring me to participate. No one is preventing any of those people to take moments out of their day to pray, and they should do it on their time. This is the problem with people like you, you want everyone else to be inconvenienced because of your prayers. We do not need it, nor to be bothered wasting time watching you do it because you are bothered because we have more free time than you.

    Really? Then why did he say we should have no other gods before him?

    What does that say? What does it say? it doesn't say except on government property, it says "OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEROF" of what? RELIGION, what are they doing? PROHIBITING.

    So no, freedom OF religion isn't freedom FROM it is freedom for them to practice it and freedom for you not to, it doesn't mean that you have to pray but it does mean that you or anyone else cannot prohibit others from praying ANYWHERE.

    Would y'all be ok with this city council starting out each meeting prayer with "Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with Thee.... "? I mean, since it isn't an endorsement of anything and all, it should be ok, I should think.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Many would not be. For many, it is unbiblical to pray to Mary.

    No, freedom of religion is being able to practice your religion when, where and how you desire. If you don't desire to practice one at all then of course you can easily make that choice as well.

    What exactly about this is forcing you to take part? Why should anyone care if you are inconvenienced by someone practicing their freedom? Is that supposed to be a good reason to restrict their freedom?
