Can't wait till the school leads kids into praying for Allah, or for Satan.

I mean, the kids can pray, or not.

I thought that prayer was already allowed in school.

Is there a link to the actual bill anywhere? The article is a little unclear of exactly what kind of 'allow prayer in school' they're addressing.

If its individual prayer by students, then it's already protected by the Constitution
if its school-promoted prayer, then it's already prohibited by the Consitution

Sounds redundant. I wasnt aware kids COULDNT pray in schools, just that it couldn't be an official part of the school day or curriculum or something like that.

I hate this, I want separation of church and state. I hate how these Christians claim to follow the same religion as me, trying to represent me ect. I'm willing to bet those people who want this bill also want to cut welfare and make abortion illegal even if a girl is raped by her dad.

If Judeo-Christian God exists, he creates and destroys indiscriminately. He loves and hates all. That's pretty badass

Supporters of a Mississippi bill that would legalize school prayer say the measure would ensure religious liberty.

Well, it would definitely ensure it for them, just not everyone else.

I knew a girl who used to pray in every class after the teacher's lesson was over. I'm tired of these theocrats trying to find ways to reintroduce forced prayer back into public schools. It isn't a public school teacher's job to teach Sunday school lessons.

Republican Rep. Mark Formby said that even though religious liberty is guaranteed under the Constitution, schools ... are suppressing students from writing or talking about their faith in any context, the AP reports.

I'm guessing that a little bird told him that, because I doubt that he could produce the slightest shred of evidence to back up that statement.
