No, they are still on the Homeland Sec Watch List.
Yes, if offered as Jesus offered up His public prayers. Short, to the point, without vain repetitions, earnestly seeking the guidance and wisdom of God, then yes, I believe they would have met the criteria of "quietly and without fanfare".
Ah, Tacitus X, methinks thou dost troll too much.
Yes and No, T_U_P, the Bible does not instruct Christians to only pray in private. We are told not to have our public prayers be long-winded, repetitious prayers (similar to those of the Pharisees). We should keep it simple, straight forward, and to the point. Even Jesus, you know that Jewish fella who is the Savior in Christianity, prayed publicly. We are also instructed about praying privately.
Tacitus X - would you be so kind as to give me the section of the US Constitution that expresses or specifies the separation of church and state? I mean, I have read it and cannot find it anywhere. The First Amendment prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. That means the rights of free speech and freedom of religion are protected from government interference. However, knowing the framers of the Constitution as I do, they were quite happy to have religious expression in government. The schools taught from the Bible. Prayer opened (and still opens) each session of Congress. I have found one place that separation of church and state was mentioned by the framers. That was in a private letter between Jefferson and the Danbury Baptists. You see, the DBs were concerned that the US govt was planning a State Church similar to that of England (the Anglican Church). Jefferson wrote to reassure them that no such thing was in the works. He told them that in such cases (govt setting up a state church), there must be a clear wall of separation of church and state. Not a wall keeping religious expression out of govt but keeping govt out of religion. Oh, and to help you out, you won't find that passage in the US Constitution. You will, however, find it in the Constitution of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, in other words, the failed Soviet Union.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! Of course not. They will continue to vote for their Comrades in the Proletariat.
