Recently I read the article about the One Voice United in prayer and their activity at the courthouse.
Personally I feel that is is inappropriate to bring things like prayer to the courthouse. It’s a place for legal functions, not religious functions. I certainly don’t mean to say that prayer is wrong or that I disapprove, I just disapprove of it happening in a setting that should be neutral and void of any particular religion.
I also found it distasteful that the prayers were said in support of things like business, military, and of all things the media meanwhile ignoring the homeless, the poor, and the starting, or so I assume as it wasn’t mentioned at all in the article.
The point is that everyone is subject to the law and the courthouse is a venue to dispense the law, it is not a place to showboat religious beliefs.
