          Worth noting that in the decision prayer was deemed to be OK so long as all persons applying to perform such a prayer were given equal opportunity to do so regardless of religion.

            Really?

            As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen,—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

              The Founding Fathers were not aware of this. They even changed words that sounded too religious like "sacred" to "self evident" in the declaration.

                  Those statements were added in the 1950s.

                    As an atheist, I do not pray. Why should any time be set aside and credence given to an entirely pointless and worthless exercise?

                        for you bible thumpers

                        The Lord's Prayer

                        5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

                        7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 Pray then like this:


                        “Our Father in heaven,
                        hallowed be your name.

                        Matthew 6:5-9

                          The people you try and offend with this comment don't care what Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Bush, Obama, or the next guy's religion is/was. Its a poorly rehashed arguing point to create more hate amongst conservative christians.

                            So changes made in the past don't hold water now unless the founders would have agreed? They owned slaves ya know?

                              Who cares many laws and traditions have been added after the Constitution was written. What's your point? That those traditions not as important?

                              One Nation Under God! We tolerate the heathens but make no mistake about it we are a Christian nation! Deal with it. Most people will still say they believe in god.

                                Umm. No. You just wish we were becasue it is what you want to believe and the way you want the U.S. to be. How is it decided who is a true Christian or not? Don't you play in a rock band? It is the music of the devil to some "Christians" you know.
