It's unrealistic to do this, because even if we win the political fight, Christ loses. We frame Jesus in the public mind, as a dictator, who doesn't care what you want, as long as your children act like they believe in Him. God forbid! This next sentence is going to offend a lot of my Christian brothers, at least those who need to be offended. There is no such thing as a Christian country. There are only Christian people. If we're the Christian people God called us to be, loving and being considerate to our neighbors, no one will be offended if we quietly pray in a small group for the safety of the football team or the futures of the graduates. If we try to use the force of government to sanction public school prayer, we offend everyone who isn't us. How do we reach them with the love of Christ while we're using the force of government against their personal choices? When it comes to prayer in public schools, there is nothing Christians can do politically, without offending the very people we're trying to reach for Christ.
