Which is every single time you enter into one.

You've realised that you can't win an actual argument which is why you attempt and fail to insult atheists here like the worthless failed Creationist troll you are.

Tell us again how Jesus rode on the backs of dinosaurs, maybe this time we won't laugh at your pathetic evangelism attempts!!!

What opportunities are you missing or being denied? You have have the opportunity to defy your christ's wishes and you have done well at it. He said, don't do and you said, I will do it and you can't stop me.

That is more defiant than I have ever been to your gods!

I never suggested that you did live in the past; I just pointed out that you haven't learned from it, either.

I see you like quarreling. The fact is this moment of silence exist whether you approve or not. I agree, theists are the majority of tax payers and we should be granted our freedom to pray. Of course you will use that scripture to favor you but are there more scriptures about prayer or are you stuck on that one? I didn't kill anyone or will I ever. Take care!

Of course this is an opinion and you know that. You will keep using that argument because that's what you do. On not here to battle you but to enlighten you that I agree with prayer in school since we are the majority of tax payers. Sorry about that but it's not right that atheists control what we believe.

Atheism is a lack of belief in god. No atheist controls what anyone believes.

This is another piece of Creationist propoganda from the uneducated tw*t.

Two things.

First: You have always had your freedom to pray. I served in the military, to do my part, to ensure that you have that freedom.

Second: If you haven't noticed, I will clue you in. The bible was written to be vague and contradictory. One can find a verse or two to support or denounce anything. Often religious arguments end with one party running out of counter verses before the other party.

Why play the victim? Has anyone been denied the right to pray?

There was a story that Fox News went nuts over, a few years ago, about a boy who was suspended from school for reading his bible! The christians went mad! How dare they?!?!

Come to find out, the boy was read aloud during math, history, science and preaching to others, while they were trying to study.

I am sure that his parents and his church were proud of him! He was only doing what the lord asked of him and they were, as you say, the tax paying majority. Once the truth came out, the little boy took his punishment, put his bible away, when it was time to study and he ceased his preaching. I would like to know where that little boy is at today.

He probably went to college, GREW UP spiritually and intellectually, and now is an agnostic or atheist.:)

Honestly I don't agree with what that boy did. It shouldn't disrupt class at all. I wouldn't mind a religious class to be offered. Also that still doesn't affect the moment of silence or youth for Christ. Those things are done after the pledge and during lunch. Not really a big deal. Thanks for serving our country.

But that is an assumption and not a fact. I actually see kids now and days with bibles and preaching to groups. On the same token I see a lot of atheists on campus too. How, I hear their comments about what their parents told them about religion. Either way it's everyone's right to believe or not believe.

...and this points out that the line is drawn at the point where prayers disturb others, both in ad out of school. A believer can pray aloud in public at the same level that anyone can make any other kind of noise in the same place. the student in BlackSheep's post would have been treated the same for disturbing his classes with any kind of speech--the issue wasn't what he was saying but the fact that he was disrupting the educational process. I suspect that the same behavior would have had the same result in most religious schools as well.

You are welcome. And you sure do skirt around the questions that are asked of you.

Have you been denied the right to pray? Has anyone you know been denied the right to pray? Do you feel as if someone is trying to deny you the right to pray?
