So fred, it's only his need for attention and wish to impress someone?
That Pretty well sums it up, it is plain to see from the way the boy acts out and from his past.
Why pray in public? To impress people and show that they don't want to obey the law?
A publicly lead prayer is a good thing to have before most events and the point to them is to acknowledge God, give thanks, and pray about the specific event. No one is saying that a public pre game prayer is the place for personal prayers which should be done privately.
Maybe the others think you're full of crap and they're right.
In this great country they are free to think whatever they want but they're still wrong.
