The fight is still going on daily in Houston Texas.
it's been fine for over 50 some years to pray and give thoughts out loud and now one must watch what he or she says.
Are we in China? Hmmm I thought this was the USA but one might see change and not for the good making us all feel uneasy on what we say openly:

Why is the state of Texas trying to spearhead this movement? I think it is honorable to at least try to console the families with some comforting words of god. I am not a religious man but I KNOW that from attending former vets funerals, words of comfort help the families at a difficult time. It is considered the 'right' thing to do at a time when there are no words for the loss. These VFW family does what they can to help in a time of need and the govt want to take that away also. Not all families want this but it helps the living to remember what was once a religious freedom.
