It was a good thing to take prayer out. Of course there are benefits to it, but it's not a good thing to assume that all children have the same faith. At an age where all kids are just trying to fit in, I was left aside, without understanding why.
There is a need for spirituality. But for kids who don't fit into the structure of a classroom prayer, it is a damaging thing.
I'm a born again Christian and prayer is my sustenance. That being said I really don't believe that prayer should be taken out of schools. Understanding that there are children who perhaps don't pray, why couldn't there be a quiet time to allow those who want to pray to do so? Others could just sit quietly or read a book.
yes i completely believe that their should be no prayer in a public school. If i want my children to learn of god then i or a church will teach them, but not in a place that is meant to mold minds. i am not a christian, i do not believe in that, i have chosen a much older religion when i was in school i had a choir teacher who made my life hell for it. any kid of any religion will be in that classroom, it is not righ to alienate them for what "most" might agree on.
This issue is all about shame based Anglo-Saxon/Celtic (Israelite) wretchedness, spinelessness and limp wristed liberal crap that now slushes around in the lost modern minds of British and American people. This, in turn, is caused by the conditioning and brainwashing they receive in their so called places of education and via the Rockefeller/Murdoch Canaanite Jew (non-Jew) media empire which vomits out liberal propaganda continually. Basically, our children are 'taught', by deluded treasonous scum, to be ashamed of their history and their heritage.
Fundamentally, the prayer thing is a lack of pride in their Christian religious heritage. I state this because Spiritually and in essence Britain and The USA are both Anglo-Saxon nations at heart - Israel or Ephraim and Manesseh.
Without prayer how is a child ever to know or learn about the Godhead?
Here is a warning to Britain and America and it's as relevant today as it was in 725 BC:
Hosea 4:6 (KJV) My people (Israel - Britain and America) are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. (Brackets mine)
You have been warned.
I do love God and I love the Bible, and I work hard to believe what they say. But, it may surprise you, I don't necessarily think prayer in schools is a very important argument.
If you really trust the government, and you really believe the government knows what's best for you, and you really believe the government's laws won't be twisted and subverted, then yes, the government should allow prayer in its schools.
The bottom line is, prayer is a conversation with God, even if just in our thoughts. If I'm in a place that says I must pray, or must not pray, or I must pray this or that, as long as my prayer is my own, to myself, nothing can go wrong.
My fear is that when government starts talking too much about prayer, it will make one bad decision that leads to another and another, until people are forced to pray one specific way to one specific religion, excluding all other non-government regulated religions or deities (or however a politician might word it...)
If removing prayer from schools avoids a future like that, I'm all for it. As it is today, kids can pray quietly or silently any time of the day they want, which is fine with me.
Yes because praying doesn't give you answers, you thinking does=)
I don't think so, but it was an effective way for the atheists to get their message out there.
