No surprise. The ACLU is managed and supported by anti-God Communists. No surprise they filed a suit because the man said a prayer--what else are they good for but destroying everything good they come in contact with.

they don't think that God is real nor do they believe that there is power in prayer yet they fight it every chance the get. they object to christmas parties, it's about time they objected to halloween parties.

Here comes the martyrs. This is how it starts. They will be burning Christians at the stake before you know it. Don't think that we are too civilized for it.

Racism, drugs, violence, murder, sex in the schools of America.

Everything but prayer.

I doubt everyone would be so forgiving if they were offering up prayers to Allah, Shiva, or Ganesh. Public schools are not permitted to force religion upon students. Any religion.

Please note that the decree does not prevent them from attending the church of their choice or worshipping in any faith they want. It just prevents them from forcing their religion on public school students.

Plus, these people signed a consent decree agreeing not to hold prayers at school functions. Then they DID IT ANYWAY. If you sign a legal agreement, then break it, the consequences should be no surprise.

I say pray away, all day everday everyway. If you want to pray to a rock, go ahead.

I forgot to add there's something else going on in US schools (but not prayer). Libby-lefty teachers turning out dolts. Promoting them so they won't "feel hurt." Trying their best to use dumbed-down tests that minorities can pass. Pandering endlessly to the lowest common denominator. Trying to rewrite history and push their social-engineering agendas. Having sex with their students.

No wonder we have to import our brightest from foreign countries now.

And still, two adults persecuted for saying grace before a meal.

What's wrong with this picture?

Lou Dobbs (a self-proclaimed independent on CNN) has just said example...only one in four students in Oklahoma know the name of America's first President.

Fewer than half of all Americans can name all three branches of our federal government.

The dumbing-down is hugely successful. The hip-hop culture seems to be winning. Dumb and stupid is in.

I rest my case.
