    No, you just have to sit there. Play something on your iphone when they are taking a minute to pray, or just do whatever.

    Again, you are a liar who is making stuff up because no one said you could not pray. They just said you cannot organize it at town meetings.

    There is no law that says people have to pray before a meeting. Such a law would be unconstitutional. You are a liar.

    No one is saying you cannot do that, just that you cannot organize people to prayer as a part of a government event. Liar liar pants on fire. No litterally because if you are chrstian you are going to hell for bearing false witness which is a sin.

    The hell they're not.... Show me where in the First Amendment it says individuals can only pray at X,Y and Z and only at X,Y,Z times???

    You sir are just inventing "conditions" for prayer....

    I really don't give a **** when you believe it's an appropriate time to pray - thats up to the person/people praying - NOT YOU. You're not the prayer police.

    You are forcing people to sit there which is forcing them to participate in some way. No one wants to sit through your prayers, so keep it on your time.

    You can pray any time you want, you just cannot organize public events put on by the state to prayer.

    So you would be ok with "other" religions have "their" prayer heard as well right? I mean 1 minute for Chritianity, 1 min for Buddhist, etc. right? Or is it that only Christianity is allowed to have the floor? Aren't they denying the religious freedom of others by not allowing them in?

    Sorry, but not a good reason to force people into prayer. The state cannot force people to pray.

    I don't see why I would care to deny anyone.

    I don't care who it is, the state cannot force people into prayer of any sort. They cannot stop them from praying on their own, but they can also not force them and organize prayer. It does not belong there in any form, and iof you give the religious zealots and inch they will take the whole state.
