You and your fellow non-believers seem to misunderstand the second part of the line concerning religion. "or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" You want restrictions placed on religion. Taking prayer out of schools is prohibiting free exercise. Taking nativity scenes out of public place is as well. And the list goes on.
But you and your freedom from religion Liberal cohorts are perfectly fine with using the Constitution to try and destroy that same document.
Should a Jewish kid be forced to say the Lord's Prayer in school simply because YOU want your kid to ?
Should a Muslim kid ? Should a Buddist kid ?
Should your kid have to say a Muslim prayer in school because his teacher happens to be a Muslim ?
Your right to pray or to have your child pray is not infringed. You both are free to pray anytime you wish. It is forcing your prayers, and your nativity scenes and your beliefs on others and onto PUBLIC property that has been found unconstitutional. If you wish to have organized school prayer there are a great many, good Christian schools out there, but the public schools are called public for a reason.

Lying Linda has a federally classified friend who she knows so well??? Linda said she has a 3 bedroom brick but has a trailer in a run down side of town instead.
You can't put anything into what Lying Linda says.Republicans wouldn't think twice of turning her down.She's too low class to be in Republican party.Tea Party would puke at her request to join up.Too low class.Does not even vote yet critical off others who do.

It is quite interesting that it "has been found unconstitutional" - although the men who actually wrote the document had no issue at all with attending church services at the U.S. Capitol building.

Look, since I endeavor to be a Christian, I PERSONALLY have no objection to having my kid say the Lord's Prayer in school. The thing is, I can actualy see how that would be unacceptable for other folks who also pay taxes and do not believe as I do. If you can't see that side of this, you are blind.
This country has a more diverse population than ever, and I think FORCING one's religious beliefs on other Americans is a pretty unamerican position to take.

BTW, you never answered the question in my post. How would you feel about your kid saying a Muslim prayer if his/her teacher was a Muslim ? Would that teacher be somehow less of an American than a Christian teacher leading the class in the Lord's Prayer ??????
ORGANIZED prayer has no place in public schools because of the problems that are sure to result from a situation such as the one above.

That's odd, you say the Republicans would not want Linda, because she is too low class. Now in my County which votes for the Republican ticket everytime is "for the most part" very, very poor and living in trailers, working multiple jobs, milking the system(which is not right), just getting by, day to day. Yet they still vote Republican, so I can only guess they are Republicans.
Now this past election, I have talked to some of the business owners that are registered Republicans(for life) and I even asked them who they were going to vote for and they all said Obama. They understood that for their small business to survive they would have to have him in office.

You never asked me - I thought you were asking another poster.

Prayer in school is not even what I've been posting about, rather the false argument that the use of public property for religious services - whatever religion that may be - is somehow 'unconstitutional'.

The solution is government ran hospitals for the poor. Optional hospitals. There would need only be enough of them to serve those without insurance, and the poor who cant afford it.

There is no need for Obamacare, which is rebuilding the old Soviet Union.

Its like a situation where a band aid (government poor hospitals) are needed, we wrap somebody up like a mummy (Obamacare).

Obamacare is 50 pounds of the wrong medicine to cover a half-ounce sized problem.

Its just a convenient excuse for a socialist takeover.

Well, your TEApublican-majority Congress voted to give it to him! So, who's fault is it, really? It's the House of Representatives that vote on all things concerning Money and YOU voted THEM into office! If you've got a problem with that, it's because THEY screwed you over, AGAIN! You'll learn one of these days...MAYBE!
Oh Sweet Pea.Oh Honey Babe.You seem to forget I voted for" Change We Can Believe In".This guy is nothing but a con man,a pupet for his money masters as most are.He conned his way in on lies.
I told you I did not vote this time because I'm fed up with the BS that comes out of DC.
The people better come up with a solution because this country and life itself is in big trouble.
You can go on and on about Tea Pubs but he is no better.
I'm going to learn one of these days? I learned after I saw he was telling lies about everything that he said he was for or against so he did not get my vote the 2nd time around.
In my book that's learning.

So by extension, we all should have followed your lead and sat at home instead of voting. That would have put Mitt in the White House and SOMEHOW this would solve all of our problems right ? That would have magically "come up with a solution" ! Yep that's the ticket.

There are between 45 and 50 MILLION uninsured Americans in this country right now. Many of those people are the sickest individuals who EVENTUALLY (after they have declared bankruptcy and divested themselves of most of their life's posessions) end up being covered by Medicaid which is government (taxpayer) funded healthcare. How many of these "optional hospitals" would we need to service those millions of uninsured Americans AND the group that are Medicaid eligable ? What would be the cost to the treasury ?
While you might, I do not find 50 million of our fellow citizens who have no health insurance to be a "half-ounce sized problem". The same argument you are making was made over Medicare a few decades ago. I don't know a single senior citizen who wants to do away with Medicare, and I suspect you don't either.

It was not entirely on school prayer - I was responding to this:

"It is forcing your prayers, and your nativity scenes and your beliefs on others and onto PUBLIC property that has been found unconstitutional."

In addition, further on you post:

"It is forcing your prayers, and your nativity scenes and your beliefs on others and onto PUBLIC property that has been found unconstitutional. If you wish to have organized school prayer there are a great many, good Christian schools out there, but the public schools are called public for a reason."

Are Christians not a part (most of the time the vast majority) of the 'public'- and pay taxes for said property?

This is infuriating. There is a business that wants to open in Chattanooga providing jobs - and...A lobbyist for Ole Smoky Moonshine, a distillery in Gatlinburg, could have caused the delay of HB 102, which would allow leaders of Chattanooga Whiskey Company to make their product in Hamilton County.

Are you actually advocating a majority rule on allowing religious displays and prayer o public property ?

How does that same sentence sound when I substitute a single word in it ?
"Are" WHITES "not a part (most of the time the vast majority) of the 'public'-and pay taxes for said property ?" Should whites have the only say in what happens on public property based on that ?
That was THE argument going on in this country a copule of generations ago, and that one wasn't found constitutional either.

I did not want either one of them and I just could not vote anymore for the lesser of two evils.
How many more years will we continue to vote for these people who continue to do for the benefit of those who bribe them.
They will vote for Monsanto's benefit because that is where the money is.
Screw the farmers,screw that GM crops are devoid of nutrition,screw that they cause sterility, screw that they cause tumors, screw that they cause organ damage, screw that they are killing the bees, screw that they are contaminating the water supplies,screw that they are taking over life itself for power and profit
and destroying that system of life that has been unfolding on this place we call home.
This same thing goes on in the cancer industry,the fracking,on and on
where ever you look.
I think we the people better come up with another plan because it will not happen with the system we have now.
So instead of the Dems did this or the Pubs do this they all need to go.
