"I know there are some people who would like to make this nation a secular nation, who want to take God out of everything that exists in this country," Romney said. "They try to say it's unconstitutional."

Romney: More prayer in schools – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

How many people out there are prepared to pray to Joseph Smith?



P.S. Somebody tell Willard this is a secular nation. If you want a theocracy, move to Saudi Arabia.

I wonder how Willard would like it if the prayers were chanted in Hebrew and left out the Jesus dude. Would that be acceptable?

We should ask Romney if he means praying to the God he worships... the one that lives around Kolob and has dozens of goddess wives and fathered Jesus and Satan as spirit children, or does he mean the God of Aristotle?

More prayer ? Someone needs to tell Romney there is NO prayer in schools. The "moment of silence" is quite sufficient.

From a purely strategic standpoint, Mitt shouldn't talk about religion. It's going to be remind the people who care about it that he's not "one of them".

You do realize that it is 100% Constitutional to pray in school, don't you?

Mitt is an American citizen and entitled to his opinion.

It would probably do everyone good.

When I was a kid (in public schools), we always started the day with the Pledge and a prayer. I do not think that this adversely affected anyone.

Give it a rest. Political correctness has proven to be complete BS. There is no harm whatsoever in the pledge and a prayer and only uptight, easily offended, pain in the a*s liberals would object. These are the same people you would never invite to a social occasion, as they are always pissed off and unpleasant toward others. If these same liberals would have been spanked, compelled to pray, have jobs when they were kids, and learn some discipline, they would probably be conservatives instead and not be so unhappy with thier lives.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! YOU'RE SUCH AN IDIOT!!

Seriously, if you haven't got a clue what the hell you're talking about, just shut up and people will assume you're not a complete moron.

Where do people get such stupid ideas about the Mormons? I swear, nobody ever gets any of the facts straight about any aspect of what they believe.

Thank you for amusing me with your stupidity.

Here's I'm going to throw out one too -- call it an idiot holiday: Catholics worship Horses and goats.

Bye now.
