You can still pray in school, teachers just don’t lead you in prayer. My public school in Georgia always had a moment of silence in the morning after announcements, and my private school led a prayer for a girl’s father in the hospital. There’s not some agenda against prayer in school, despite what people say. Students can still pray.
As for the removal of the ten commandments, well, yeah, why do they belong in a court house anyway? Almost all of them are religious in nature (“I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me,” etc, etc). Further, it’s an endorsement of the Christian religion in a government building of law. If you can’t see how that is “supporting an establishment of religion”, then whatever. There is a separation of church and state in this country, which is why the ten commandments aren’t displayed in courthouses. Which isn’t even necessarily true. In some cases they remain because the display is in some way traditional, much the same way that “In God We Trust” is still displayed on money, and was held up in court as traditional.
This is just Christians who like to cry that they are being persecuted, while meanwhile they are the most populous religion in the country, with almost all of our elected representatives being Christian, who have free reign to worship as they please or spread the word as they please. But then they cry out foul play when they can’t display their religion in a public building? Or lead students, who may not be their religion, in prayer against their will? Please.
