You don't need to speak for me, as you can hardly speak for yourself.

I hardly think it would only be Christians. Do you think only Christians talk to God. I guess you wouldn't really know.

<quoted text>Who are you to determine the appropriate length or running time of a prayer??
And if every religion in every school was accommodated with 'prayer time', there wouldn't be any time left for academics.
You're an idiot.
I think each group as a consideration to others should keep it short and sweet.

Well it just took me 25 seconds to say the Lords prayer, not 15 minutes. I think we could afford a short time for each faith.
And you can say it under your breath.

No need to alter everyone schedules or separate all the students based on their respective, religious backgrounds or beliefs.

Send your kids to a private, religious institution and stop whining about how your religious rights are being taken away when they are not.

I think that according to the Constitution, you should be allowed to pray anywhere.
And, according to the Constitution, you are, Witless. Already. What you are NOT allowed to do is to infringe on the civil rights of others.

Again, HOW can you claim religion has been "banished" from schools, where the students are allowed to pray in a group around the flagpole at the start of the day, they teach religion classes, and have Bible Clubs?

You are truly an idiot.

Even if "each group" kept it "short and sweet", how much time would be left for actual SCHOOL WORK? Are you really unaware of just how many religions may be represented in any one classroom, you Moron?

<quoted text>Pin another cookie on you. I have no problem with kids praying silently all day long, if that's what fries their chicken, but I have a SERIOUS problem with them being required to pray any certain prayer, led by anyone, for any length of time, at a public school. So do most of us, and that's why it's not allowed.
As far as I'm concerned, prayer is personal, not public.
I didn't say required and you know it.

That's because you're too stupid to realize there may be as many as a dozen different religions in any given classroom, and that it takes FAR longer to get a group of kids to settle down to do anything together, especially when you ALSO have to quiet those who AREN'T participating in that activity. And you'd have to repeat the process every single time.

Much simpler to let each child pray silently when they wish.

Why do you believe prayers need to be said out loud? Don't they work if they're not?

Good morning "Ink!"

Hope this morning finds you well.

I see we've got a rather "spirited" discussion going on already, and that you're in the thick of it...
I'm rather curious, with regards to your statement above, do you feel that same of freedom ought to be extended to atheists as well?
By that, I mean, do you feel they should have the freedom to not be subjected to others "praying" around them?
This is a question that's solely out of curiosity, and not meant to imply anything whatsoever.

How many MAY there be? One for each child in the classroom. Apparently YOU are unaware of just how many different religions there are.

Hi John

I get so sick talking about abortion. Tried something new.

I am going for a moment of silence now. That shouldn't offend anybody.

No need. Take care of personal things on your own time. You want your kids to be able to pray in school then send your kids to private schools. Your rights are not being minimalized. Your religion does not MANDATE that one must pray before going to school.
Recess is being cut out of school days, music, art and PE are experiencing cuts, but Ink thinks that time should be allotted for prayer. Prayer can and is performed quietly and privately in schools all the time, on a student's time between classes. It's unnecessary and intrusive to make it an official part of the school day. Ink is a silly, ridiculous little person with some of the stupidest notions written here.

John on the same subject.

I just think we have become a country full of offended people. I don't understand the lack of tolerance for other's religions or lack of. If you believe something strongly that isn't shared by another poster, you are an idiot, moron, stupid or worse.

You have no problem telling me and everyone else what they think and belief, so it's perfectly ok for me to do the same with you. The difference is that I am absolutely correct in my assessment of you and you are absolutely incorrect in yours of me. That's all there is to it. Off you go, now :-)

Ah, I see the problem, Witless. You don't understand what the word MAY means. Got it.

How likely it is makes no difference. What if there are even 10 different religions represented by the children? Again, how much time will be left for actual school work (you know, the reason the teachers and children are THERE in the first place?) when the teacher has to settle down the students who will be praying, AND those who won't, each and every time?

You never answer my other question, either. Why do you think prayers must be said out loud? Don't Christian prayers work if they're not spoken out loud where others must also listen to them?

I actually answered that question in my post to John K. He unlike you is always polite and respectful even when he doesn't agree. Take a lesson.

BTW it is a shame that they don't actually learn anything.

Her brand of Christian has to make sure their peers witness their piety or it doesn't count.

No, you really did not.

You get what you deserve from me. You haven't earned my respect, and I have no need to be polite to someone like you.

Which really has nothing to do with the subject, but by all means, let's take time from the school day to cater to religion, shall we?@@

Not true. You're incorrect, as usual. It's just your particular type of religious fundamentalist that are an idiots, morons, stupid, and worse.
