Ran across this lovely headline today.... http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/news/local/polk/school-board-arres... .

 

Pretty sad world when you're arrested for standing up for what you believe in, don't you think?

People that want a public prayer in school obviously haven't read the Bible...

 

"When you pray, don't be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get."  Matthew 6:5 

Very well put, FreeThinker! I think, it's more disruptive to pray in public in the first place than to protest on behalf of your beliefs.
I hope he wins.  The charges against him border on the ridiculous. Nonviolently resisting arrest? So he did nothing to these police officers and they charged him for it?  I wonder how many other people have ever been arrested for having an anti anxiety pill in their pocket.  I am guessing none.
