If I went to a ball game, where 1000 devil worshippers, or Muslims, or any other group, and they led a vocal prayer to some diety in which I did not believe, nor support, how am I damaged by this?

unless of course, deep down Mr. Green may question his disbelief and feels compelled that others should feel as he does in order for him to feel better about himself.  It is ridiculous and a waste of the court's time and money to even pursue this non-sense.  Local municipalites should be left to their own to decide how they wish to live.


The point isn't how deep his beliefs are...lol.  So I guess you are saying that when we decide that there are lots more Islamic people here than Christians we can start having Islamic prayers before games?  Or maybe a Wiccan ritual?  Hmm...whatever the Norse religious believers want to pray or say instead of your choice?  You would really be okay with that?

 

If so then why does the idea of a moment of silence so all who wish to pray can, all who wish to send positive energy, think, focus, or relax can all do so bother you so much?  How about the people in charge just acknowledge it isn't legal and stop the public yelled prayers?  No charge for defending it and all views are respected.  If you truly don't mind if another group would speak or pray, then a moment of silence so you can pray could work just as well I would think.
