Attempts by christian groups to have prayers reintroduced in schools is in direct violation of the teachings of the bible. It goes directly against the god they are supposed to be praying to.
In Matthew 6:5-6 jesus said "And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret."
This verse is telling christians, In no uncertain terms, That prayer should be something done in private. It is NOT something you should do in public or around others.
So why do so many christians flat out disobey this order and insist on praying in public? It's because deep down they don't really believe this shit any more than i do. They know it's not the word of god. Because if they did believe it, They would go out of their way to make sure they followed every aspect of it to a tee. After all, Who would want to piss of that mental case.
