Atheists for School Prayer td Mon Jan 1 11:12:31 2007
I was born and went to school in Canada, where we didn't have any of that pesky first amendment stuff. So we recited (sang, some years!) The Lord's Prayer in class every morning. Religious adherence is tricky to measure, because there's little people like to lie about more than piety, but the best-justified figures I can find indicate that about 20% of Americans attend church services regularly, but only about 10% of Canadians. Maybe that compulsory school prayer thing wouldn't have the effect its advocates want. I say bring 'em on!
