    Certainly looks like you would prefer that atheists, pagans and other non-christians not participate in public forums where laws and statutes are being discussed. Legal matters that could affect their lives. Nice way to get rid of your political opponents. Not quite what I think of as "Libertarian" philosophy
    That's exactly what I'm saying. If you're more concerned about being offended than you are with the substance of the meeting than your input on the topic shouldn't be valued anyways.

    Or you could do something totally radical like show up to the meeting when the prayer is over.....

    It's all up to you tho..... It's your freedom to attend or not to attend. People shouldn't drop their civil rights because you're opposed - people shouldn't cater to you..

    This is why you should read posts & understand them before replying:

    If she's at an official school function; say teaching a class or a rallt. The students ARE involved in her prayer by their mere presence. That you don't think so is asinine.

    No cookie for you. There is a difference between the establishment of a religion and separation of church and state.

    SCOTUS disagrees with your arm chair lawyerism:

    Supreme Court Decision on Evolution & Creationism: Epperson v. Arkansas
    Supreme Court Decision: McCollum v. Board of Education, School District 71
    Abington School District v. Schempp & Murray v. Curlett (1963)
    Supreme Court Decision - Torcaso v. Watkins
    Court Decision - FFRF v. Rhea County Board of Edudcation



    Official government functions don't provide that choice.



    You do. Do you have to listen to the Communist Manifesto at government meetings?
    If you don't believe in religion then there is nothing to spread. Besides, prayer is usually silent...

    If you don't believe in UFO's or aliens and if someone brings the topic up, do you go running for the hills crying about how you have the right not to hear "alien talk?"

    If you don't like apples and if someone pulls an apple out and starts eating it do you freak the **** out??

    Why is it religion that freaks you out?? are you afraid that all of a sudden you will become and evangelical if you here the mere mention of prayer??

    You're an extremely shallow person. Not to mention I bet you're all about tolerance considering how "liberal" you are.

    So much for the tolerance aspect of progressive politics eh???

    Aww, I'm sorry - did 200 years of court cases basing themselves on the first to validate separation of S&C make a whole in your nonsense?

    Let's complain about wasting a whole minute to pray.

    *hole*

    Nope.

    It might be wise if you are going to be grammar Nazi to watch yourself for the rest of the thread.

    Again, my point stands. Want to pray, pray on your own time and own dime. They can do this before the meeting if they REALLY REALLY need to. No, it is about grandstanding and nothing more.

    However, I will still say that is the state's and the voter's choice since it is the voter's dime. It shouldn't EVER be a federal issue.

    If you were a real libertarian you would support the First Amendment....

    Right now you're siding with a bunch of intolerant clowns that believe civil liberties are "limited" to weather or not an atheist is in the room.
