Battle over prayer at VMI heats up
A Kentucky lawyer says the doctrine of "military necessity," not political correctness, should guide policies regarding prayer at one of the nation's oldest military schools, especially as war with Iraq looms large on the horizon.

"America's military must not be plowed under by the 'politically correct,' with the drums of war pounding," says Crestwood, Ky., attorney and retired Marine Col. Ronald D. Ray, speaking about the age-old practice of hearing a mealtime prayer at the Virginia Military Institute.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit in May 2001 in federal court in Lynchburg against VMI after a pair of cadets, Neil Mellen and Paul Knick – then both juniors at the military college – objected to the saying of a prayer before evening meals. According to tradition, the entire VMI student body cannot be seated for supper until the student chaplain leads them in a prayer provided by ...

It seems to me that the taking away the right to say the prayer is the infringement on religious freedom. How could the seperation of church and state have become so turned around from what the founding fathers of this nation set out to acomplish? It was to protect the church from the state and to keep the church out of the process of prosecution by the state. But, this so called American Civil Liberties Union seems to do nothing but take away the liberty to freely practice religion anywhere except by yourself, or where everyone that can hear, see, or suspect that you are communing with God is in no way offended. I have never seen the ACLU stand up for preachers that are arrested for preaching in public? Why not? Because,in my opinion,the ACLU is anti-God. I have never seen them protecting someones right to practice religion. But, I constantly see them seeking to silence the riligious. Soon I shall not be allowed to pray with my windows open for fear of offending my neighbors.
