Again I will posit are you going to okay with it when Satanic cults demand equal time for prayer in class, or when Muslims want to interrupt class and lay down their magic rugs and prostrate to the East or when Hindus want to grab the closest cow and rub on it.
If you are cool with that then help pass this bill because although the authors of the bill clearly want it to be just JudeoChristian prayers heard round the halls they cant have it that way. and its going to bite some of these laws in the ass

I'm a Christian and this topic probably rubs me a different way than most Christians. I think that God should be present in all Christians at all times, but as understanding adults there is a time and place for certain things such as prayer and worship. You go to school to get an education. You go to the store to buy groceries. You go to work to make money. You go to church to worship.
If you feel the need to pray in school then do it silently with your God. Your relationship with your God is a personal choice and a personal relationship.
