Ill answer that.
Its not a fact. Its your opinion.
If most want it, logic says it SHOULD be.
Unless you like small groups imposing on the vast majority.....
The people are being represented. You should celebrate that. Tomorrow if the majority aren't christian, then you can have your day. Not today though.
that is a fact.

lol ok fine... Then lets say a prayer and a non prayer alike. Oh wait... a non prayer would be silence!!!
Do you guys REALLY think that someone saying a prayer before a state run function begins, that it'll actually hurt you in some way? I mean really, where is the actual problem? Where is the thing that litterally does something to you one way or the other? You guys act like your skin is going to fall off or something.

What this ruling means is that you are forced to participate in a religious ceremony, even though it's a PUBLIC meeting that has nothing to do with religion.
Where are you getting that this prayer is taking place before thee function begins....
What does opening prayers mean to you?
