No one is telling people that they can't pray, just that the government has no business in the prayer business, that's all. Why do these people feel that they have to stand on the steps of city hall for their prayers to be heard by their god? Or perhaps it's so they can be seen as 'oppressed' and therefore more holy in their own eyes.

It's all about thew money, folks, it's all about the money. If you boil it all down,'pastors' are in the business of raising money and self-promotion.

Don Wallace just wants attention. It's sad that he's using this as an excuse to get his name in the newspaper.

They're worried that if Measure O passes they can't expand their churches to take in more non-profit coin.

Well put. That's exactly what's happening.

5 simple constitutional words: "...respecting an establishment of religion"

How these jokers translate that into "...when a judge says you can't do something" is just self-victimization.

Pray. Don't Pray. Whatever. But don't force either on anyone else. That's America.

That goes for you atheists too. If you are secure and confident in your atheism, then someone out there praying in your presence shouldn't offend you at all. Right?
