Will the secularists be just as willing to remove their impositions from the people of faith? Publicly-funded abortions? Public education weaponized in some places to attack faith, particularly that of young children? Increasing political and financial pressure placed on those people and institutions that do not openly embrace homosexuality as "normal"? The issue here is that the secularists believe that the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment makes non-religious thought and action somehow more Constitutionally preferred. It doesn't. --more--

What part of "the free exercize thereof" don't these people understand? It's freedom OF religion, not FROM religion! If you don't want to listen, cover your ears, or show up after the prayer.

Thank you! but you and I both know dealing with liberals or those who only call on God when in problems/difficulties, won't change because they are small minded and lacking common sense.

You will undoubtedly drive public prayer from the public square in the not-distant-future, and you will go on imposing on the people of faith and swear to yourself you are not. There is nothing more tragic that someone who is self-deluded.

God loves you nevertheless, and desires with all His heart for you to know Him. Why don't you ask God straight-up to show you what He's really like, and then wait and see how He does it?

Since the 1950s the Longview, Wash. City Council has opened its public meetings with prayer, as Congress has done for 239 years. But fear of a lawsuit from groups like the ACLU has caused the mayor to tell the local ministerial association that it is “not acceptable” for ministers who volunteer to give a Christian prayer that refers to Jesus.

To their credit, the ministers refused to give a generic prayer that violates the convictions of their faith.

So, for fear of an ACLU threat, city officials decided to exclude ministers simply because their faith teaches...
