    I have already done so by looking at the two and the definition of religion.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    "undecided" - my norm...
    I prefer to think that this kid was not a whore and that he had courage of his convictions..I also think that one should be allowed to do these things without a fear of reprisal...after all, this prayer is but a 60 second thing....our time is not that precious.
    I think we need to relax, cool it and smell the roses...and not make such a big deal out of things..

    No, no, and no. Not what happend at all, and not what Christ taught against at all.

    Jesus was speaking against hypocrisy yes, however He was speaking to the Pharisees who claimed to be the religious standard yet were twisting Scripture for their own personal gain. That is not what was going on with this individual student at all.

    He was tired of the oppression Christian speech is getting and stood up for what is right. It was a rally call to Christians, not a Religious pompiety.

    It's not rocket science that atheism is the absence of belief in a god or supernatural being who reigns over and/or created the universe. Evolution is a discipline of academic/applied empirical science. Evolution is not pseudo science or new age religion pulled out of someone's imagination.
