Keep prayer out of schools

Posted: Tuesday, April 18, 2000

There was an item recently written in favor of school prayer. The argument was that it doesn't do any harm. Maybe so, but does it help anything?

For thousands of years people have been going to war because of their different beliefs in religion. I don't believe that we will go to war if we start to say prayers in school, but a few people might get a little upset over it. We are better off leaving religion alone.

If you want to pray, great. Go to church.
