    How is some jackass kid flapping his gums at some graduation hurting the "foundations of our Constitution"? That's what government does.

    That Government should be seperate from Religion. That is one of the tenements of our Constitution. If this kid wants Religion in the school he should attend a private school.

    The government is secular, and doesn't speak to religion. Congress shall make no law.... A kid running his mouth ain't making law.

    The fact that Christians would be applauding someone reciting "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" in public only underscores how derailed they are..............................

    This kid demonstrated yet again what we've seen time and time again. Those who want to scream the loudest and proclaim their "Christianity" to the world are almost often the ones who display the least about the teachings of Jesus Christ. This fool clearly does not understand that you cannot lie and pretend to be Christian at the same time.

    So? What does this have to do with the price of rice in China? It still has nothing to do with attacking the foundation of the Constitution, nor does it say that innately prayer and other forms of speech should be innately banned.

    His speech was approved, and he took it to the podium, conflicted as to actually delivering it as approved or going with his gut feelings. I doubt many would have had the gonads to go against the "committee"...

    I can bet you a bunch that not all in that auditorium held the same religious or spiritual beliefs.

    Had the prayer been in Hebrew or in Arabic...there would be an explosion of objections ring out across the country.
