    Since the Engel decision in 1962, religious advocates have been assailing the Supreme Court for 'taking God out of the classroom.' In an effort to reverse this trend, conservative religious groups have been fighting for the passage of a school prayer amendment to gain greater leeway for religious activities in schools.

    We need to look at prayer with deeper thoughts. Prayer isn't just closing your eyes, folding your hands and speaking. Prayer is a much more meaningful part of religion. We all need to pray, God himself demands us to pray. Prayer is defined as an act of God, a god or another object of worship, such as in devotion, confession, praise, or thanksgiving. When most people pray, they just say the same prayer, like the Lord's prayer for example. Saying the same prayer isn't really such a bad thing, its...

    Prayer in Schools I feel prayer should be re-established in America's schools. There is a strong belief in God by the government, so our schools should also support that idea. Many use prayer as a guidance tool. It gives a lot of students something to believe in and a sense of hope. They can turn to prayer for help and understanding in difficult situations. National officials, students, and churches use prayer; schools should be allowed to use it as well. God is recognized as the "universal sup...

    SUMMARY Engle v. Vitale was the first case brought to the Supreme Court that used the establishment clause to remove religious activities that until this point had been used as a part of public observances. The First Amendment bars any enforcement of any law "respecting an establishment of religion" and the Fourteenth Amendment makes this applicable to the States.

The constitution protects the right to free speech. Therefore, there is no reason for this case to have come up in the first place. If someone does not want to hear a prayer, they do not have to listen to it. If I were the judge I would rule that banning prayer at school events is unconstitutional. The first reaso...
