    I sure do! Great guy! (Not being sarcastic btw) Just not a god to some.

    I would totally fight for your and anyone else's right to pray to their god(s), the issue is when it is forced on others or endorsed by gov officials.

    No, I said PRAYING is endorsing a religion. Did I say you couldn't endorse religion in a building legally? No. I said you can't force children to listen to your prayers. Pay attention, you're falling behind on this one.

    Oh I agree it's not relevant, simply responding to a point she made.

    Engle V. Vitale was an overstep of the court, just like this is.

    Picture Islamic prayers at the start of every session of Congress. I bet you can't convince yourself you'd be ok with it.

    You don't even have to use congress; imagine this in Dearborn, MI; a city with a fairly large population of Arab-Americans. Imagine the city council beginning with a prayer to Allah or Muhammad. People would go ape shyt; talks of Sharia Law and Islamists would go up ASAP!!

    Some of these people don't think Mosques should be allowed to be built in this country, but they have no problem with Christian prayers in government operations. Like the 1st amendment had a ****ing asterix in it.

    And what harm is being done here exactly?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
