    Should we then attack the 1st Amendment as well?

    MANDATORY prayer in public schools was "banned" by the Supreme Court in a very straightforward decision based on a conservative interpretation of the Constitution. Every sitting justice on that court was an avowed theist. Atheists had nothing to do with it.

    VOLUNTARY prayer in public schools has never been 'banned' and is still practiced on a regular basis in public schools all over the country ... especially around exam time.;)

    Exactamundo!!! The same Constitution that protects your right to worship your Christian god as you see fit, also protects the same folks who want to worship (or deny) other god(s) as they see fit. How is it fair, in any way, to force Christian prayer on American kids (or any American, for that matter) who may not be Christian (or Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, or whatever)?

    Perhaps if those people have a problem with other folks' use of birth control, then they might be in the wrong line of work?

    It'd be a great world if we all followed your religion, wouldn't it? Us atheists are plenty capable of being kind, contributing members of society. The kind of neighbors you want in your neighborhood. I've seen good and bad people from all religions and lack thereof. Stop trying to blame everything on us "liberal atheists."

    I don't usually get too worked up over this kind of thing, but you are out of line in singling us out as a problem.

    Probably a thread killer, but so be it. I don't like having my lack of a belief in an invisible friend blamed as our country's problems.

    edited. In retrospect, I was just being snarky.

    A point is atheists, gays, hell you name it can do and say whatever they please and speak there minds push their views and its ok. Try to pray in school or wear a religious shirt. you get sent home. Funny Slayer and Slipknot Shirts dont get you sent home. Point is everyone is different and will have completely different views as to how to live their life. thats the beauty of this country. But to say i cant do something because it "may" offend someone is ridiculous. Im offended daily, but the debauchery, anti christian remarks, on and on and on arent banned. Funny the double standard this country has.
