Why can't you pray quietly?

I jsut read another post and it made me think. Why do Christians make such a big deal about beig able to pray at school or where ever else they think they can't pray? If you are doing it quietly no one would even know you are doing it. Why do you have to make such a big deal about it? Do you want everyone to know you are praying or something?   I don't see why you can't pray where ever you want to

 If you really wanted to, NO ONE can stop you from bowing your head and saying a prayer in your head.

Maybe its like people who are really loud when they have orgasms?  They can't pray quietly either...

Some Christians. I myself, feel that prayer is a private thing. But it certainly depends on what it actually is. I don't have a problem with celebrating the holidays at school and singing songs, etc. I think it's a great way to have fun and teach other cultures.

When I first started studying my religion, it says that most people would never know, because we can do our rites by being silent and shutting your eyes.  The thing is I have done this hundreds of times, especially when I was on a plane from Germany, scared poopless from turbulence, and no one ever knew.

They are only pissed because they are told that they can't do it. Those people think that the world revolves around them and get pissed when others remind them that Christians are not the only people in the world and all deserve to have rights. LOL
