The Hoover, Ala., School Board recently reinstated an old pre-meeting prayer policy, but it’s not as bad as you might think.
When the “moment of silence” bill first came up for vote in the Illinois legislature years ago, some House members sang a song on the floor to the tune of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sounds of Silence.” It went:
Hello, school prayer, our old friend
It’s time to vote on you again
A Texas law that requires public school students to participate in a "moment of silence" was up for discussion yesterday in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
