I’m not sure why liberals can’t just read the Constitution and take it for what it actually says….
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
How EXACTLY is a town council prayer the equivalent of Congress making a law (mandating) an establishment of a state religion? It isn’t it does not set up the equivalent of the old Church of England…. which is exactly what the founders wished to avoid. If you look to the second phrase of the Establishment clause, “… nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”, one must ask, does this court decision “prohibit the freedom for this group to exercise their religious rights? Liberals always avoid this part of the clause because the federal government shutting down prayer… whether it’s in school, before a football game, town and county councils…. is ALWAYS prohibiting the free exercise thereof and is clearly UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
If you don’t want to participate, leave the room, stick your fingers in your ears, whatever you choose. But you can not deny others the right by federal government force to to freely practice their religion…. in any and every setting.
