dogsoldier,   those contending that school-directed prayer at such occasions as public school football games is unconstitutional are indeed a minority, but you should know that the Bill of Rights is expressly designed and intended to protect the rights of minorities.  I have to chuckle as I consider how often I have heard the right-wing cant that this nation is not a democracy, but is a constitutional republic and the related assertion (which is true) that the majority does NOT therefore rule, other than at the ballot box. Then along comes some issue such as this school prayer business, where the rights of the minority are entitled to constitutional protection, and all of a sudden the concept of majority rule is back in business with these wingers.  Where is the consistency?
