My problem with this is that Mr. Green, and many like him, just want attention, and they want to use the power of the courts to force their will upon others. Why should a majority not have its way? What does a simple publically voiced prayer hurt? I can understand his disbelief and will respect it, however it should not mean that the ideas of a small minority should affect the actions of so many. He does not want the public access of the prayergiver executed by the school, yet I assure you he would likely.have no problem with our tax dollars supplementing a gay rights parade, or a federal supported abortion clinic.
No, Mr. Green is an attention *****. One who like so many others in our nation today feels like he best represents the opressed and downtrodden. I don't believe in the tooth fairy, yet I am not out making a statement against him, or her. I don't beleive in Santa Claus, yet you do not hear of me going before the town council and attempting to have him thrown from the parade. God forbid we get started on beliefs about the Easter Bunny. Yet I do believe in God, it is my right to do so, and to pray if I wish. If a majority is joined together and wishes to execute that right, one person should not prevent them from doing so. The spoken prayer of a young man or woman at a ball game is not going to destroy the atheist movement. Mr. Green will likely win his crusade against the church in regards to the LCHS, but his long term gains may be more than he is bargaining for. My question to Mr. Green is that what if I am wrong and there is no God, what have I lost? Compared to him and if he is wrong, and there is a God? what does he lose?
