As a person of faith, I cannot recite this prayer. I have no idea what goes on in the minds of these people.

(For example, problematic is "Lead us not into temptation" which contradicts the concept of G-d's righteousness.)

Plus the structure and timing of the prayer is not according to my tradition. My morning prayers were said well before the time I got to (public) school.

I'm all for it-if and only if it includes the concept that Jesus said that you shouldn't pray by repeating rote prayers, but rather should do something along this line... "and now let us repeat this by rote."
Give the kids something to ask the teacher about.

Luckily, not even the other Republicans are supporting this bill - they know very well it would never survive a legal challenge. But the fact that it's being proposed at all is outrageous. The religious right is getting very bold about their theocratic designs.

I was thinking math, science, history and so on ought to be priorities.

But that's just me.

A good post by Michael Wallack on this - the bill is recycled from last year: Me Me Me Me Me: Republicans Want to Require Indiana Students to Recite the Lord's Prayer (Redux).

I'm sure it was just introduced as Red Meat knowing it will never pass. If it did, the inevitable lawsuit would prevent it from ever being enforced. However even that would be a win for the Right, because it would let them rail against the godless commie lawyers at the ACLU and "activist judges" and ask for more money from the rubes. Its all just part of the Rightwing money machine, and never mind it would waste hundreds of thousands of tax dollars that could have been spent on something worthwhile like education.

The best way to turn kids off to religion is to force it on them.
