Billy,

There is a commandment that says; "thou shalt not bear false witness". As a Christian you should follow this commandment. Yet you do not.

To say that "one woman [took] prayer out of school" is being untruthful. What happened was that the courts very correctly ruled that having the state force children to recite prayers in school was unconstitutional. Children are still free to pray as much as they want.

If you want the state to mandate prayers, which prayers will you make them recite? Protestant? Catholic? Muslim? Wicca? Atheist? whose? And who will choose?

It is the parent's job to teach their children to pray. NOT the states'.

You are still bearing false witness. One woman DID NOT persuade the Supreme Court. I suggest that you actually go and have a read of the court proceedings. One woman brought the case, but she was joined by numerous other groups, including many Christian organisations, Jewish organisations and others.

Also, as I stated, prayer WAS NOT stopped in schools. Only state mandated prayers. WHICH IS AS IT SHOULD BE! The government has NO RIGHT to order prayers.

I see that you decided to totally ignore my questions on whose prayers should be used should you get your wish and have compulsory prayers in schools. Why was that?
