I think it is a sad day when we allow people to take our right to pray when they push their values on us and they expct us to live by theirs.

You are misinformed.

*You* have the right to pray. No one is taking that away from you. In fact, the ACLU regularly fights to preserve this right.

You do *not* have the right to have a public school endorse your prayer.

This is an important difference that you do not seem to recognize.
