That man should be confronted with some facts. The scary part is that this kind of mentality even exists in the USA. I'd thought you'd find these kind of people in behind the walls of the criminally insane.

Him and Brian Huckabee should visit the parents and preach the word of god, surely they would have faith their god would protect them from the wrath of the parents.

"[God] doesn't go where not wanted" Would that the same could be said of his followers.

The irony here is that nothing has stopped people from praying in school....  Kids just aren't forced to pray a particular prayer or listen to someone else's.   This guy is no different than the Westboro Baptist Church folks.

Because bad things never happen in Gods house. Especially not to the little children.

To respond to the can of worms post by Jared Manley:

one who actually gets it right; he's a Christian who has been in a situation where a non-Christian prayer was pushed on him and rather than just bloviate about how these godless heathens should be thrown out of our christian country he comes to the conclusion that government sponsored prayer should remain illegal... and I think he'd be sympathetic to the notion that prayers at privately-sponsored events are rude.

I was pleased to notice that an "invocation" at the awards banquet for a convention I go to yearly disappeared without comment this year.  I personally know the guy who probably made the decision but I haven't figured out how to ask "why" without either "coming out" or sounding like I am on the other side, bitching about the omission.

Christianity is a religion that was founded on deep, violent hatred.  And for many today, it still is.

Oh so let me get this right because of the separation of church and state God decided not to help hummmm??? Well here is a list of school shootings that occurred when prayer in schools and the 10 commandments still hung on the walls......    February 2, 1960: Hartford City, Indiana Principal Leonard Redden shot and killed two teachers with a shotgun at William Reed Elementary School in Hartford City, Indiana, before fleeing into a remote forest, where he committed suicide.

    March 30, 1960 Alice, Texas Donna Dvorak, 14, brought a .22 target pistol to Dubose Junior High School, and fatally shot Bobby Whitford, 15, in their 9th grade science class. Dvorak believed Whitford posed a threat to one of her girlfriends.

    October 17, 1961: Denver, Colorado Tennyson Beard, 14, got into an argument with William Hachmeister, 15, at Morey Junior High School.

    February 8, 1968: Orangeburg, South Carolina In the days leading up to February 8, 1968, about 200 mostly student protesters gathered on the campus of South Carolina State University, located in the city of Orangeburg, to protest the segregation of the All Star Bowling Lane. The bowling alley was owned by the late Harry K. Floyd. That night, students started a bonfire. As police attempted to put out the fire, an officer was injured by a thrown piece of banister.
