freedom of conscience

Erlkoenig/Justin America - Prayer in public schools is not illegal. I said many prayers before lunch in NC public schools, years after the court decision you reference. The court rightly forbade school-led/sanctioned prayer. After all, I doubt you'd approve of Islamic prayers being led by staff in public schools, and rightly so. Separation of Church and State in America predates Jefferson and the Constitution.

Wilmington Observer - Thanks for admitting that my statement is true. By focusing on its intolerance that day, the church chose to disrespect its position as bully pulpit. It also chose to put its dubious interpretation of scripture ahead of the clear commandments of Jesus. After all, denying equal civil rights at the ballot box is hardly loving one's neighbor.
