let him have his say, but ignore him, and have your own say as well.
The whole point is that PUBLIC school are public, you know, for everyone, of every religion. They do no have the right to choose a religion for the students to follow. That is the parents right.

Showing your religion is fine...just don't force it. A student has the right to pray...but he can't stand up and disturb class and ask everyone to pray and the school can't ask them to either. A student can bring his Bible to school or pray before a meal but the school can't mandate it. That is the difference. We have personal freedom but we should all be against the government dictating which religion to follow or how to follow it!

I am not trying to stop you from your personal worship so stop trying to force it on me.

"public school decided on their own to have their prayer in the graduation ceremonies."

If they did, that is unconstitutional and the officals who made that decision should be punished. It is inappropriate and unlawful for school officals to hold church and indoctrinate children. If you want to brainwash kids, do it at home or in church.

Obviously, you haven't read the Constitution, so here is the establishment clause of the First Amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

No, if you had such respect, you would keep your religion to yourself...worship at home or in church. Of course, you're not satisfied with that. You insist that everyone join in. No thanks. You keep your mythology private. There are lots of Americans who don't want to hear about your invisible friend.

What the heck is small caps?

If you want to get your message across try to be coherent. You don't have to be perfect, just type the words you would use if you were talking. Grammar does not have to be perfect but if you want to get your point across it would be better if we could at least read your post.

HA, what do you think the school systems are teaching and brainwashing the kids into believing? They're teaching them to go along with the socialist views of the current administration and that BIG government is fine and that government is there to provide for people.

Now that's brainwashing........

WRONG! You have no idea the point of being a Christian. It's to SPREAD the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to save other people. I WILL NOT KEEP religion to myself. It is your choice not to accept it or listen, but it's my choice to tell you about it. That is a Christians very purpose for living to witness to others about Jesus' love.

I have that going for me and in my life, ahteists have no hope of antything and whay do they even continue to want to live if you are just going to go to dust when you die?

The United States Supreme Court is expected to make a ruling on Monday in regard to Prayer at Public meeting. Yes they have prayer in the Congress but one religion does not dominate when prayer is offered. Chaplains are rotated So one time you might have a Catholic prayer, next Baptist then a Jewish etc.
If one religion dominates prayer at public meeting then I expect the Supreme Court Ruling to side like wise.
What legal ruling covers prayer at schools is what is known as the Captive Audience Rule.

The subject is prayer in schools. When school officials organize prayer, that is unconstitutional. Students can pray on their own in school as long as they do not interrupt classes.

Also, why don't you theocrats obey Matt. 6:5-6 and pray in the closet? Why can't you keep it between yourself and your invisible friend?

"WRONG! You have no idea the point of being a Christian. It's to SPREAD the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to save other people." Not all Christians agree. Some Christians don't believe in prosyletization. Your interpretation of fiction is no better than theirs.

"I WILL NOT KEEP religion to myself." I know. That's why religion is a plague that has caused untold misery and death. The world would be much safer if people kept their religious nutbaggery to themselves.

"It is your choice not to accept it or listen, but it's my choice to tell you about it." You really don't have a right to harrass people. If you to come to my home, for example, you will be told to leave and if you refuse, you will be removed.

"Jesus' love." Threatening and torturing people is not love.

"I have that going for me and in my life, ahteists have no hope of antything and whay do they even continue to want to live if you are just going to go to dust when you die?" You want to go to heaven?(Christians always assume that they will avoid hell). You want to go praise, prostrate, grovel and thank the Eternal Slavemaster forever and ever? Wow, that sounds like lots of fun... and full of purpose.

they did not pray in class nor did they interrupt anything. the kids chose to mention god.
it was a graduation ceremony and it was not endorsed by the officials.
for a feller that claims to be smart, you really have had to be told more than once, in other words.
THIS WAS NOT UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!!!!

I hate to tell you but this was Unconstitutional.
Engel v. Vitale
Abington School District v. Schempp
Lemon v. Kurtzman (1971),
it can be seen in the cases of Lee v. Weisman (1992) and Santa Fe Independent School Dist. v. Doe (2000), where public prayers at graduation ceremonies and those conducted via public address system prior to high school games (at state school facilities before a school-gathered audience) were, respectively, ruled unconstitutional.
