Aside from my joke...<quoted text>
You also have the law on your side, and you are allowed in our childrenís schools, while KiMare is banned from the same.
Donít let the moron upset you, KiMare's opinions nothing but whining from a loser.
School sponsored/mandated prayer is illegal in public schools. However, religion itself is not--nor is prayer in and of itself. If a student or group of students want to pray, the school can't stop them. Doing so would violate their First, Ninth, and 14th Amendment rights.
If a student wants to read the Bible or hold a Bible study/discussion outside of class, it is allowed.
Learning the historical and/or philosophical influences of religion as part of a lesson would also be allowable.
And Stephen T, you're wrong. The First Amendment not only prohibits state sponsorship of religion, it also prohibits government interference with religion. If I want to pray on the steps of the Capitol Building, it is my constitutionally protected right to do so.
If I am in a state run and funded hospital, I can have a priest come in and conduct services for me.
I can practice my religious beliefs--or lack of them--anywhere I choose, in private or in public, provided of course that doing so does not unreasonably infringe on the rights of others or create a "public nuisance" (such as running through downtown naked).
"Separation of church and state"--which does NOT appear ANYWHERE in the Constitution--means just what it says: religion and the state are separate. The "state" can not create a religion and mandate its practice, nor can the state prevent the practice of religion.
Seriously, how much more clear can it get than "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; "?
*Or prohibiting the free exercise thereof*.
Public schools can not legally *force* students to pray, but they also can not legally *prevent* students from praying outside of class--or even in class if it doesn't interfere. They are forbidden from doing both by the First Amendment.
So, quit thundering about YET MORE of your bullshit. It's getting tiresome...
