Prayer a matter of personal choice [Letter]

I am shocked to have seen Roger Kegley's letter to The Aegis telling people how to pray. Freedom of religion is one of our nation's basic rights (although under continual attack). Generations of our service men and women gave their lives to protect these rights.

A prayer is a communication from an individual to the God that they believe in. Some of our Arabic countries have a loud call to prayer twice a day and the people of that belief stop whatever they are doing regardless of where they are and take time to pray out loud. In our country, If a person wants to pray before eating a meal or at any other time it is their choice and if they want to pray out loud that also is their choice. This has nothing to do with separation of Church and State because it is not political.

With all of the problems facing our country I think Mr. Kegley could find something else to complain about.
