The purpose of Our Conscience weblog is to facilitate a greater discussion and understanding of church and state separation in our community and in others. Underlying this is the value that each individual should be allowed to follow the dictates of his or her own conscience without influence, coercion, or direction from the State when it comes to matters of religion.

More School Prayer Myths

Tammie Lombard of Pierce City recently wrote in a Oct 3rd oped in the Joplin Globe that "Some people think it's wrong to have prayer in school, but what can possibly be wrong with youths coming together in a peaceful demonstration and asking the Lord for help?"

Almost no one thinks prayer is wrong in school although many don't like others telling their children how, when, or what to pray, especially the government.
