1st Amendment turned on its head: Christians banned from prayer

Many of the pilgrims who fled to America in the first place did so because of religious persecution. With that in mind, the Founding Fathers protected our religious liberties with the First Amendment. It reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Yet, because of liberals who are hostile to Christianity, we've turned the plain meaning of the Constitution on its head. Instead of protecting religious liberties, the First Amendment has been used to oppress the freedom of religion.  Here's :

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."

But Senior Citizens Inc. officials said Friday the meals they are contracted by the city to provide to Ed Young visitors are mostly covered with federal money, which ushers in the burden of separating church and state.
