Re: “Rogers, Springdale mayors criticized for sponsoring prayer events

I remember when the national day of prayer started. At that time my mother, a life-long Presbyterian, knew and said it was inappropriate. We learned the meaning of the First Amendment in one-room country schools (a wall of separation) and learned in Sunday school that the bible says that Jesus taught to pray in private. Matthew 6

The Supreme Court clarified it when it ruled unanimously in 1878 (Reynolds v United States) that "Laws are made for the government of actions, and while they cannot interfere with mere religious belief and opinions, they may with practices" else it would "permit every citizen to become a law unto himself. Government could exist only in name under such circumstances."
