Come on now! I’m prepared to discuss with some give and take the relevance of CRE to the state school curriculum, Federal funding for chaplaincy and whether or not the Lord’s Prayer has a place in public life and education, but I’m surprised anyone would want to waste their breath on this one!
The fact that some private religious schools have adopted an additional verse, albeit of historical uncertainty , is hardly front page material.
I suppose riding the momentum of the outrage stirred by the media beatup of a school abandoning its practice of the regular recital of the Lord’s Prayer is too good an opportunity to pass up!
