A group of Houston religious leaders have expressed concern about Gov. Rick Perry’s day-long prayer meeting , saying it excludes non-Christians. More than 50 Muslim, Jewish and Christian leaders signed a statement, saying Perry’s involvement in the event sends "an official endorsement of one faith over all others, thereby sending an official message of religious exclusion and preference to all Texans who do not share that faith."

The statement urged elected leaders to not impose their beliefs on others or divide citizens along religious lines. The opposition was organized by the Anti-Defamation League. And yet these same folks tell us that public prayer be banned from school commencement programs, nativity sets not be displayed in public places, and any mention of Jesus or invoking Christian doctrin be banished from government at all levels. So in an attempt to comply with these schizopathic opposers to the faith of our founders here is a revised school prayer. NOTE this prayer must be prayed silently.

Now I sit me down in school, where praying is against the rule.

For this great nation under God, finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites, it violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow, becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green.  That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene.

The law is specific, the law is precise.  Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall, might offend someone with no faith at all.

In silence alone we must meditate, God’s name is prohibited by the state.

We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks; and pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.

They’ve outlawed guns, but first the Bible.  To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, and the “unwed daddy,” our Senior King.

It’s “inappropriate” to teach right from wrong.  We’re taught that such “judgments” do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth control, study witchcraft, vampire and totem poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed.  No word of God must reach this crowd.

It’s scary here I must confess.  When chaos reigns, the school’s a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make:  Should I be shot, my soul please take!
