Eh, I said the invocation at my high school graduation. Yeah, I said a prayer. Funny given I am rather agnostic, raised by athiests, and marrying a jew. Honestly, I don't see the big deal. I don't see a prayer as 'establishing a religion' which is what is forbidden by the first amendment and it even says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;..." it seems to me that saying there can be no prayer is prohibiting the free exercise therof. That said, those of other religions should be allowed to offer a prayer and an athiest can stand up and say, "Dear Imaginary Whatever, these people are full of shit" for all I care. I just don't find a prayer offensive. It's not like she said, "Dear Heavenly Father smite down the unbelievers..."
