Ok, we will cover this one time. I do not have patience for someone who feigns stupidity as a debate tactic.
Like someone that pretends to not know what "love life" means? Yeah, I hate that too.
Obviously you are confused but at least you seem to be concentrating on free speech. I am simply pointing out that free speech does not actually mean you have to right to say anything you want, anytime you want, anywhere you want.

Another freak on about the BS of religion.
Look of all the this you mentioned - birth control, sex abortion, condoms - these are REAL things.
religion is NOT. You can not prove to me one instance where a god exists. I can prove to you many times over the reality or abortion and condoms etc. In a court of law there should be NO religion for I can not use the excuse "god told me to" as a defense because I will be deemed "Crazy".
And rightly so.....people use religion to excuse their behavior and as an excuse for having a weak and simple mind.
For me it not about not believing its about not being controlled by some make believe entity.
So mass praying before a game is absolutely ridiculous. It nothing short mass mind control and getting everyone in the same of mind. Nothing different from people like David Koresh , charles manson, Ron Hubbard. They controlled their "people".

I am surprised you kept them going as long as you did.
Basically this whole thread has been those same 3 people contradicting themselves
going against the standards they so proudly proclaim to have
I do not understand why these people can not just pray on their own time or in their own minds. Why does it have to be a show where people gathering for any other reason have to hear them pray?

What makes you think I'm not Christian? Plenty of Christianity out there that doesn't support the teachings of Jesus. Sounds more like intolerance to anything but Christianity.

So your kids doing a Muslim prayer a few times a day and a Jewish prayer and a Buddhist meditation or a Hindi prayer at school would be okay by you? Say if it was alternated in rotation according to and in proportion to the populations of said at the school? And maybe a prayer-free day in the rotation for the atheists?
I guess I will never understand the compulsion to force the personal habits and choices of a few on the general population in a secular and diverse society.

Its so annoying.
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
