I personally have no objection to prayer either way. But what kind of message does this send to the thousands of high school students around the nation that have lost the priviledge of saying a prayer before a sporting event such as a football game. Just a few years ago a group of students from Santa Fe High School took their plea all the way to the Supreme Court only to be shot down because of the "Separation of Church and State" rule. Now here we have a goverment body wanting to pray before a city council meeting. It sounds to me like a double standard going on here and hypocritical as well. In my humble opinion "Whats good for the goose; should be good for the gander." If there is going to be new law concerning prayer in public places and goverment facilities; then the law should be applied equally to all citizens and meeting places including all sporting venues.5 months ago
