I also will Pray for the ones who do not approve of such meetings. I thought that in America that we all had the right to speak to who ever we wanted to and to talk about what ever we wanted to without someone tell us we can not. I did not know that "Nazi's" ran the school system and could dictate to our children what they can talk about when it is something good and would not cause harm to others. This is so sad.
uhh yeah

I don't think that the school should allow the meetings to take place.

Separation between Church and State.
The school is funded by the State? No church whatsoever.

As a student at East Valley, our school is messed up enough. Why not let kids get together and pray. Considering they were praying FOR THE SCHOOL they should be allowed to during lunch, because it doesn't even interfere with school. And hey, it's a lot better than what they could be doing instead, such as drugs, sex, or getting into all sorts of others problems that that group is praying for!
Uhh noo

That's not what seperation of church and state means. Seperation off church and states is a concept that's meant to keep laws from being made that are influenced by religion.
