(CNN) - Linda Stephens has lived in her upstate New York community for more than three decades and has long been active in civic affairs.
But as an atheist, those views have put her at the center of a personal, political, and legal fight that has reached the U.S. Supreme Court.
You can't deny God without first acknowledging he exist so I guess this Stephens woman is just another attention seeker.
Why is it non American to teach yoga in a public school ?
Should learning a foreign language be banned ?
Even those who do not believe in religion, should respect the rights of those who do. This is not respecting those rights.
This nation was built on the premise that 'In God we Trust.' It is our motto. It is even on our currency. Whatever route you take to get to Him is your choice. If you choose not to, that is also your choice. We will not give up our rights because you are offended. You offend me. If you don't like it too bad. Life is full of things we don't like. If you are going to pick a fight I can think of hundreds of things more worthy to eight about than against a message of peace and love. What is Really bothering you. Not being heard? Need your 15 mins?
"The justices on Wednesday will hear arguments over whether Greece, New York, may continue sponsoring what it calls "inclusive" prayers at its open sessions, on government property."
This is totally inappropriate behavior, and the Court should rule accordingly.
If you do not believe in God, just don't. But rights of believers in God like me shall not be abridged.
the lady has a point. personally I think prayer should be in church or at religious functions . Or in private. unless you are going to include all religions then it seems presumptuous to assume everyone is a Christian. And the statement that this country was founded on Christianity is not true at all. Religious freedom means religious freedom.
