Today was my graduation and before we started a prayer was said by a student. I thought this was illegal in the United States, it was in Texas. I thought it was senseless and the school principal and board members showed little respect to the non-christian community (atheist, and every other religion). What are your thoughts on this? Does anybody knows if it is legal in Texas and why?
Thanks!

Yeah, they draw straws at the Good Ol' Boys Club.

At last, the Bush Presidency, adequately explained:

It's only illegal if they force you to join in. I think it should be barred all together, but the line is fairly fuzzy in this respect.

I don't care if they pray, just make it short!
