The persecution of christians in this society

should really lead them to not do the same thing to other faiths.

I guess not.

Since there is a Great Falls in Montana, Virginia, and South Carolina....as well as Chester County in PA and SC, I'm assuming that this all took place in SC ????

This is sad, But just shows that not all that claim to be Christians actually live the faith. But you can't condemn everyone that is a Christian.

This is the type of situation

In reply to: Re: The persecution of christians in this society

you get normally in 'thumper' country where religion is deep seated and the heads of local government especially don't want to rock those voter boats by actually separating church from state, Glenda.

I don't care if she is a witch...the fact is, she was brave enough to fight city hall and get the prayer removed (when in fact she originally asked that other religious prayers be also allowed and was refused). She was being 'persecuted' for this stand against the norm of 'business as usual' for the 'good ole boys' and it started when she began refusing to participate during the prayer time.

I live in one of those small towns and if you begin to rock any of their boats, you are basically ostracized from the rest of the town. The local government does NOT tolerate being questioned or confronted without some type of retaliation, and sometimes it's not even subtle.

Sad, but true ..

In reply to: This is the type of situation

Too many people in small towns like the one I live in confuse sectarian government meetings with church assemblies. Sometimes there is enough overlap between the types of meetings that confusion might seem inevitable.

I do wish that government meetings, school events and such would dispense with the "invocations" and "prayers" that are either: (1) blatantly unconstitutional; or (2) so bland as to be meaningless; or (3) inappropriate to the setting; or (4) all of the above.

I'm all for prayer, but I think that its use in non-religious settings makes a mockery of real prayer.

I sympathize with your feelings, but I'm not sure the Bible writers would have understood your "non-religious settings makes a mockery of real prayer." See Philippians 4:6,7; Ephesians 6:18.

They were with you on blandness, though: Matthew 6:7,8; 1

I agree there ToniHappy It is sad that these people don't truly live what they preach! I disagree with the womans religion, but as far as I know she is entitled to practice what she believes. I was actually happy when they stopped prayer in schools, as my kids were in a predominately Mormon town and I did NOT want them teaching MY kids what they believedSad As far as I am concerned teaching my kids to pray and what to believe in was our job as their parents NOT the schools!
