Attack on Prayer
Prayer is being attacked once again. Officials from Senior Citizens Inc. announced recently that open prayer could not be said on the food at the Ed young Senior Citizens Center in Port Wentworth, Georgia, because the food there was mostly covered by the federal government. Saying the blessing on the food would usher in the burden of separation of church and state. Instead of asking the usual open prayer on their food, senior citizens will be given a moment of silence during which they may offer their own personal - and silent - prayer. This is just another example of how freedoms for many people are destroyed in the name of being tolerant of the wishes of a few other people. The people who continue to belief that there is a wall between church and state do not understand the First Amendment. The Founders set up a government where the citizens had freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.
