Senior Citizens Told They Can't Pray Before Meals
PORT WENTWORTH, Ga. -- Preston Blackwelder proudly showed off a painting of his grandmother that had hung next to the front door of his Port Wentworth home.

She was the woman who led him to God, Blackwelder said Friday.

And with that firm religious footing, Blackwelder said it would be preposterous to stop praying before meals at Port Wentworth's Ed Young Senior Citizens Center near Savannah because of a federal guideline.

"She would say pray anyway," Blackwelder said of his grandmother. "She'd say don't listen." ...

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. Luke 4:4

"it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer"

For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. 1 Timothy 4:4-6

The refusal to allow seniors to pray before their meals is in my understanding, against a human being's basic rights and needs.

It's just crazy. Espescially when they are telling old people not to pray. If I were a pure cold-hearted secular atheist, I still wouldn't have problems with people who wanted to pray. If they want to, let 'em! It's not like it's hurting anybody. I hope I never have to put my parents in such a place, hope I never find myself in one either, but I understand that it does happen. I would try to find some other place for them to go if they started enforcing crazy rules like that. Of course in the New America there really aren't too many places to go.

Disobedience is the correct response. What could the dimwitted rulemakers do about it?

This is nothing but total insanity. Since when is praying verbally before a meal a violation of the so called Separation Of Church And State? There is no such thing as Separation Of Church And State in the Constitution because the words Separation Of Church And State are not in the First Amendment.
