Women ordered to stop praying inside mall

Tammy had no idea her passion for prayer would lead to trouble.

A few weeks ago the Dublin Girls had gathered inside the local mall for an evening power walk. They formed a small circle and as they had done many times before, they bowed their heads to petition the Almighty.

But before one of the runners could say, “Lord Jesus,” she was interrupted by a mall cop barreling down a corridor.

“The security guard came running toward us and said, ‘You are not allowed to pray at the mall. That’s against the policy,’” Tammy told me. ...

US,I'm not equating making a profit or running a business with greed.However, from what I've seen,most malls are very relaxed when it comes to discernment in the modesty department. Many clothing and department stores have indecent posters in their windows and throughout their stores, even in the perfume section, and during that time of the season,inappropriate calendars are sold out in the open...just a couple of examples. I won't get any more descriptive. If you have a different experience at your local mall,good for you. I wouldn't be comfortable as a woman walking in the mall and having to pass lingerie stores with men perched on the benches that are strategically placed within eye shot of them. It's sad that we've come to this point. It's no wonder that teen boys would rather look at porn than to have a girlfriend. (not suggesting that there ought to be any inappropriate relations in regards to having a girlfriend)Our children have this imposed on them it seems at every turn and bend.

One would suppose they would chose a mall so as to avoid the outside conditions. Maybe they could gather outside in the parking lot for prayer if they so chose.

SC, am I understanding you to be saying that all malls and/or places of business in the mall are places of greed, covetousness and catering to the flesh? Again, just asking, are you equating making a profit and running a successful business with greed? Are you suggesting that Christians should not go where secular society has secular messages? thanks

Well, they may not allow for audible prayer but they certainly wouldn't be able to say anything if someone were to pray silently. God's not suppressed. He knows our minds...which is a sobering thought.
Perhaps they could pray to themselves, silently.
This incident is just yet another consequence of compromise. Compromise begets further compromise and then people are taken by surprise when they lose their freedom. This mall is probably like many malls. One can't walk in them without being bombarded by filthy posters and the like. And they do love their "holi"days which do a disservice to God. Christ doesn't belong in "holidays" and so maybe Christians need to abandon the covet-driven malls and opt for other places to gather. This could be a blessing in disguise for these ladies...anybody see the irony? Prayer is offensive in places which cater to greed and to the flesh. So be it.

Especially, Paddie, since it was probably, Dublin--Georgia. Hmm, the manager could be worried someone would be throwing down a prayer rug and asking people which way to Mecca?

“I said, sir, are you saying that people who eat in the food court can’t bow their heads and pray?” she said. “He said, ‘No ma’am.’

Hmmm. What's astonishing to me is that most of those who make the rules and enforce them are not even athiests, but attend some form of church. Religion or denomination doesn't matter, but the fact that they are.complicit in supressing God is and then they go and sit in a pew the following Sunday. I couldn't be a part of it.
