Just keep it out of PUBLIC FEDERALLY FUNDED SCHOOLS. If it would have been done correctly then our tax dollars wouldn't be paying the ACLU then. If they want to pray, let them pray elsewhere, not a public school or public school event.The Iggy better read the Constitution. There is no mention of "separation of church and state" anywhere in it. The author of the phrase is Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Ben Franklin during the framing of the Constitution. By the way, Jefferson wasn't even in America when the Constitution was written. He was posted as an ambassador to France. His fear was not that the christian church would take over the government but that the government would force its own religion on the church. That's why they had fought to be free of England. Go read the writings of our founding fathers. It is very disturbing to see how far we are from the ideals and dreams they left for us. By the way, I was there, sat behind the Dobrichs, and spoke at the public meeting. There were no lawyers for the school there, but the national representatives for the ACLU were. Oh, and so were the State Police, who were forced to attend by the ACLU because there would surely be violence. There was NONE. Everyone who wanted to speak got a chance, no one interrupted them, no one threatened them. The only antagonists in the room where the ACLU. The school district has always allowed student led prayer in compliance with federal statute. Did you know that the ACLU gets paid twice each time they go to court, win or lose? Their opponent, usually a government entity, pays their legal fees either way, which means your tax money at work. And they are subsidized millions of dollars by us, the taxpayers. Sweet deal, huh?
I know what the constitution reads and HOW IT HAS BEEN interperted by the Supreme Court, which is NOT IN FAVOR of ANY religeous prayer at PUBLICLY FUNDED school events. They deserved EXACTLY what the received. They should have known better, period.
