I know that this is a very fragile topic, but my own curious nature made me do it.
Recently in my local school, we had a teacher that told a stupid to stop praying during the moment of silence that we have every morning. This, of course, sparked a huge controversy in the community. Most of the opinions that I heard were that we are protected in our rights for the freedom of worship.
After reading up a little bit, I did find something interesting. The First Amendment says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion". It also says that all men are created equal, but it took almost 90 years for that to be applied to blacks. Just because the First Amendment wasn't adhered to doesn't mean it's not the law of the land or right.
One last thing I found a bit interesting. This is a verse from the bible.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
So, should schools allow prayer?
