    Wait, have you ever heard a prayer? First of all, a prayer is just proselytizing. Second, they're anything but silent in the American context.

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

    If you don't like apples and if someone pulls and apple out and starts eating it do you freak the **** out??
    Hey! Hyperbole #5262 from you.

    Why is it religion that freaks you out?? are you afraid that all of a sudden you will be come 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???


    My tolerance of your religion stops where my civil liberties begin. If I'm at a government event, I don't want to hear that nonsense much less sit by as you preach and proselytize through prayer.

    You're talking about something that takes a minute on average from start to finish and will not cause any sort of impact on the amount of work that they will get done that day. You might as well be crying about wasting money on an unused chair.

    It might be wise if you are going to be grammar Nazi to watch yourself for the rest of the thread.
    200 years of legal constitutional history backing up separation of C&S. Good thing you decided to bow out.

    Well, since it has no basis in the language written in the first amendment it just so happens I'm not wrong.

    Do you not understand:

    1.Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion

    2. or prohibiting the free exercise thereof

    It's not that hard to understand.

    Furthermore don't tell me about prayer because it's blatantly obvious you know nothing about prayer... 99% of prayer is silent and you cant prove otherwise.

    AGAIN you don't have a CIVIL LIBERTY NOT TO BE OFFENDED...

    MY civil liberties DON'T END and NEITHER DO YOURS!

    Popular Basis of Political Authority: James Madison to Thomas Ritchie

    "The legitimate meaning of the Instrument must be derived from the text itself; or if a key is to be sought elsewhere, it must be not in the opinions or intentions of the Body which planned & proposed the Constitution, but in the sense attached to it by the people in their respective State Conventions where it recd. all the authority which it possesses." - James Madison

    You obviously don't. As you don't realize that this applies to government endorsement of religion as well. Free exercise of religion doesn't extend to government functions.

    It's not that hard to understand.

    Furthermore don't tell me about prayer because it's blatantly obvious you know nothing about prayer... 99% of prayer is silent and you cant prove otherwise.

    Nonsense.

    Where is it law (where is the law) that says an individual must adhere to religion or partake in religious activity???

    or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
    Clearly these tyrannical intolerant atheists ARE prohibiting individuals from exercising their religion and they're using the judicial system (our government) to do it, which is ironic considering that is a double violation of the First Amendment...

    Would a discrete Druid sacrifice of a chicken be acceptable as a preamble to a meeting?
