What Federal Funds Does For Your Freedoms

Georgia Seniors Told They Can't Pray Before Meals

Tim Rutherford, Senior Citizens Inc. vice president, said some of his staff recently visited the center and noticed people praying shortly before lunch was served. Rutherford said his company provides meals like baked chicken, steak tips and rice and salads at a cost of about $6 a plate. Seniors taking the meals pay 55 cents and federal money foots the rest of the bill, Rutherford said.

"We can't scoff at their rules," he said of federal authorities. "It's a part of the operational guidelines."

What has happened to common sense in our country?  Do they really believe telling people they can not pray before a meal is going to stop people from praying?

This is your Federal government at work 'for the people'.  The more they fund and 'give away' (your taxes dollars by the way), the more control they have over your lives.

This country was founded on "In God We Trust" and the founding fathers prayed daily.

George Washington said "...No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States.  Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency...".

Separate of Church and State is game that politicians play as this country came to be because of our wonderful God.

First Amendment to the US Constitution:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"

In other words, there is no official state religion and nobody can legally tell you to stop practicing your religion. The seniors in the story could legally sue Senior Citizens, Inc. for violating their first amendment rights. "Separation of Church and State" isn't about getting religion out of daily life, it's about keeping religion separate from *government*. It seems like a lot of people have forgotten that.

Ruth you are so right. And it isn't so much that people have forgotten as they are not taught the truth of our Constitution in the school.
