Al Sharpton: Supports school prayer, but donít impose it

As a minister I am for school prayer , but I am not for imposing prayer no schoolchildren. I believe that just as children are not forced to pray, they should not b forced from praying, if thatís what they want to do.

There should be a moment of silence to begin each school day, when children can either say a silent prayer, meditate, or do nothing. Thatís not unconstitutional in my opinion. But to ban prayer from school is not only immoral, it is as wrong as forcing school prayer.
