Your lips say ‘school prayer,’ but your eyes tell me ‘desegregation’

Part of the problem with arguments about “prayer in schools” is that quite often they don’t seem to really be about prayer in schools.

The anger and resentment over the loss of cultural hegemony the 1962 school prayer decision has come to symbolize seems to trace back earlier than 1962. About eight years earlier, I’d guess.

Which is just to say, more or less, that I suspect something like this:


"I was really hoping that someone wrote that down wrong.I'm going back to bed now. ..."

LBCF, No. 152: ‘In these shoes?’
"Federal Reserve: powerful, secretive institution. See "what happened to two trillion dollars", and Bernie Sanders ..."

We Are Being Governed by Fools
"I borrowed the first from the library but didn't get into it. Then it was ..."

LBCF, No. 152: ‘In these shoes?’
"Me too. Flipflops are very "sensible shoes" for warm weather."
