Atheist Group Tries To Stop Prayers at High School...

Ugh. When will they get that in the US, public school means no official prayers?!

In some regions of the U.S. they will probably never get it. Alabama and other southern states have had incidents like these before and people really never learn.

I love how they are like "Christians are under ATTACK!" Yeah, cuz you all are the ones required to sit through someone else's church service at every football game.

“I would think that any other prayer from another religion would not receive this kind of negativity.â€
HAHAHAHAHA - Yeah, I bet if an imam led a Muslim prayer, there would be NO protests or insults, everyone would be quiet and respectful, and they would all bow to Mecca. ;)

:lol:

I'm reminded that the case Santa Fe School District v. Doe (US Supreme Court, 2000) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Fe_I ... st._v._Doe was brought not by atheists, but by Mormon and Catholic students and their parents who were basically being cut out of the praying before football games.

Why don't these people get back in their prayer closets, like Jesus said (Matthew 6:6)? It's not about prayer but about asserting power over those who are not of your faith by having sanctioned public prayers.

If I were at that football game, when they told everyone to bow their heads for prayer, I'd get up and crawl through the bleachers to get to the food stand. And I wouldn't be quiet about it.

I seriously can't believe this part of it all! No, you're being asked to stop marginalizing others, you fools.

I love how he says if other religions prayed they would not be attacked so. I can't imagine the reaction if a Muslim prayer was said before a football game there would be a riot. Do people really think god protects football players and causes them to win?

My son played football for a Catholic high school, a Christian Brother's school no less, and they didn't have prayers before football games.

There was a similar request made by the same group to stop prayers over the loudspeaker at football games in MS near where I live.

The local response is just sad. So much pearl clutching and wanking about being persecuted.

They can't stop prayers. Any person can pray at any time, there's nothing to stop them. They just don't want the ritual to be imposed on everybody.

I do that! Though I am quiet about it.

I have no problem taking advantage of the hundreds of immobilized people in a crowded area in order to make some headway on foodz. :obscene-drinkingcheers:

I also enjoy keeping my head up and observing people during a prayer. People's faces can be pretty funny.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
