I am offended when political events and public proceedings start with a prayer or a religious benediction. I don’t think that our president should take the oath of office on a bible or that we should ever know or care what the private beliefs of any elected official might be. The sky could literally be falling on your heads, and if the only person on the planet with the ability to hold it up happened to be pro-choice on abortion, you’d let the sky fall.
Organized prayer has no place in public schools, so stop trying to bring it back. The lack of prayer in schools is not responsible for the moral decay of this country; in fact there is no proof there is any moral decay…except that you say so. What you describe as immorality has always existed. The only differences are that now it’s more in-your-face, because of the information age, and there are waaaay more people than there used to be. And if we are going to have a pledge of allegiance to our flag, then let’s go back to the original version. The revised version, fortified with god, causes indigestion (I forgot to mention I don’t capitalize the g-word either).
