Just saw on the news where the school board decided not to start the meeting w/ a prayer. Why? Why are
"they" allowed to practice their believes but we aren't allowed to practice ours???? I'll pray when I want, where I want, and I DARE anyone to stop me!

Another poor decision made with Dale Todd at the wheel.

Who are 'they'? Sure you can pray when and where you want to. But this is a public meeting. Why do Christians think they can impose their religion/beliefs on others. Why not a Buddist prayer or a Muslim prayer? Why? Does the Christian prayer trump all other religions. Why? Why is this hard to understand?

God trumps the devil and Heaven trumps Hell. You may not believe now, which is your right. God gave all man a choice. One day you will wish you believed!! Even the devil believed! He just tried to take over. What a sad world this has became! The United States was founded on Christian belief. It doesnt matter if you believe or not. Suck it up and move on. I don't believe in a lot of things. For instance....when I see two women holding hands... I don't agree, when I see a white person with a Mexican....I don't agree. It does not matter if I agree or not. Those people are happy and it is none of my concern. If I whined about everything I didn't agree with or everything that offended me we would be here all night. The truth is NO ONE CARES IF YOU ARE OFFENDED. When I was in school and we had to watch a movie in class, all the Pentecostal kids sat out in the hallway until it was over because it was against their religion. Did we all miss out on movie day? NO!! The majority rules!! This is a Christian country!(atleast it use to be) when Christians have had enough and decide to take our country back we will be a lot better off. If that doesn't happen soon....God will show everyone just how real HE is.

Get a life you dumb narrow-minded moron. You don't know what trumps what. What makes you think that you are right in your beliefs when YOU aren't even in the majority. The majority may or may not be right. Definitely not always. Actually I am a believer---I just think it's personal and I don't impose it on others in a public (or private) place.

They made a good decision. As more and more people become aware of their rights or their ability to receive 15 minutes of fame for just being obstinate, practices like organized prayer before meetings are going to be hijacked. At some point someone is going to want to pray a non-Christian prayer, they will be turned down, they will take it to court, and everyone will be forced to listen to a prayer about mother earth or Crystals. Then another prayer will be offered and everyone will have wished that the Mother Earth prayer was being restated. Same thing with Non-profits being allowed into our schools. Right now it's the Gideon's whom most of use like. Next it could be the Gay and Lesbian Alliance wanting and demanding to present to our children. Of course they will be turned down, then they will go to court, then they will give their presentation. Any thinking Christian can see this. Churches have youth ministries, use these ministries to impact our children and leave the schools out of the loop. If a student wants to start a religious themed club, they have a right to do so. When it comes to Christianity in our schools the students have to be the leaders so train them properly in church. If you are a thinking Christian you will recognize the need for rules that keep not just religion out of our schools, but a number of other organizations out of our schools, thus no non-profit should ever be allowed in our schools. By keeping these entities out we sacrifice nothing because our ministries can impact the children outside the school setting still allowing Christian children to have an impact within the schools. We gain by keeping other groups away from our children and by definition limiting their access to other children in our community. This was a good decision by our school board. Now all they have to do is ban all non-profits.

I'm a Christian and believe to each his own. However there are some other believes out there that try to push their believes and religion and form of worship upon us.

IMO christians do most of the pushing-----and judging.

The only place the Bible is really pushed, is in prison after it's too late for your children. Much better to have been pushed in school!
