5 “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.[b] 7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.
8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

Just because someone is part of a minority does NOT mean that their rights should be ignored, as you insinuate they should.
My point is that ANY type of prayer/blessing should be done in PRIVATE according to this scripture. And yes, Obama being slammed for not participating in some big prayer shindig is part of what brought this on. So many people use their Christianity as some sort of a BADGE to make themselves appear more moral, more holy, and better in general than others, and it's sickening. And to ENCOURAGE people to do it (ie - participate in some huge "prayer party") is sickening as well. I don't know when religion stopped being a PERSONAL thing, but it should be, according to the bible.
