No logic whatsoever in this statement. For example, how does prayer in school have anything to do with keeping "the bonds of our government in check".
You people act like liberals hate the Christian religion, you fail to see why keeping our government and religion (not just Christianity!) separate is important for everyone in this country.
The whole "must be Christians to have morals" mindset is worrisome. I can't believe people think that you must be religious to obtain morals. The two don't go together...it's called having respect for mankind. I was never raised to go to church...but somehow I have not turned into a mass murderer or participated in mass sex orgies. I don't do drugs, I've never even been arrested... OOOOoooooh! All this without the help of Jesus, It's amazing isn't it?
To be quite frank, people who need religion to be poured down their throats so they don't participate in some immoral atrocity scare me.
