Proselytizing Pupils with Political Prayer 0

Florida is considering a new strategy to enforce prayer in public schools by calling religious messages “inspirational messages.”

At Tampabay dot com, John Romano analyzes the issue, pointing out that prayer is not now banned in public schools. What is banned is agents of the state (teachers and administrators) from organizing or compelling prayers. I recommend his column for setting forth a balanced discussion of the issue.

Near the beginning of it, he gets to the heart of this issue.

. . . prayer, by itself, is far from being the problem. It is those who would use it as an instrument, or even a weapon, for selfish purposes.

Matthew 6:5.
