Although many would disagree, I believe we should all pray in public.
It is our right as American citizens of this great country. We do have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion as most would try to have you believe.
The founding fathers were very explicit in their belief that we should practice our spiritual beliefs in public as was done almost automatically in our country until just a few short years ago.
Out of respect for others who may not believe as we do, we do need to practice restraint and not try to force our beliefs on others or pray in such a way as to make it appear as if we are trying to convert the whole world.
You see many proclaiming their beliefs to the world every day, and that will turn many people off to the whole religion thing, it is their right to do so and my opinion is to just let them do their thing, it is their right and it interferes with my rights in not even the slightest.
If we do not express our beliefs in public, how does anyone know how we feel, if enough people fail to express themselves, then a false narrative is portrayed and people begin to believe that no one believes in God anymore.
That opens the door for all sorts of negative philosophies to stumble in.
To survive long term, a nation needs a moral compass. There isn’t a perfect person on the planet, and many will stumble on their walk through life, but we all need a guide and moral compass to inspire us to live a better life, without it, we will most certainly stumble more than we do now.
