    No one was forced to pray. All they had to do was go to work like they normally would.

    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.
    You are saying people can't pray because you're saying people cant pray at town hall meetings.... That makes you the ****ing liar not me.

    And there IS a law that says people CAN PRAY at town hall meetings - its the second sentence of the First Amendment which reads: "or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." There IS NO LAW THAT SAYS THEY CANT.......

    The hell I cant "organize prayer" - "organizing" is also covered under the First Amendment.

    - Prohibiting prayer - against the law (First Amendment)

    - Using the judicial system to prevent prayer - against the law (First Amendment)

    - Preventing individuals from organizing - against the law (First Amendment)

    3 strikes and you're out.

    I've never seen anyone butcher the First Amendment like you!

    Sorry dude, but the state cannot organize prayer. That would be respecting the establishment of religion. You are talking about a violation of the first amendment.

    Just for the sake of consistency would you be amenable to a county meeting in Dearborne, Michigan starting with the Shahada?

    Yeah, we wouldn't want to harm your ears. After all, that is a pretty serious offense.

    So then all religions must be able to have official prayer at the town hall meetings right? I mean, you wouldn't want to violate the free exercise of religion right?

Any time you want to show some respect for other people in the world you can take yourself out of where other people are doing work and pray on your own time.
    Awwww, now you're a poor "victim" of prayer......

    Geez show some ****ing respect and tolerance....

    Funny how I'm supposed to just "tolerate" ghetto minorities who gangbang and commit crime while living off the taxpayer coin just because 25% don't, yet the same people that tell me that cant tolerate 1 minute of prayer....
