no, public prayer is a major part of many religions. when i visit churches, i see women separated from men in amny ways. women in churches have special-women's groups, because the men in the churches do not understand women.
while they all go to communicate with a "god"; apparently the real problem is communication between men and women is lacking. religion should not have this, people need to be more open to talk between themselves.
should there be limits on public versus private prayer? apparently, the politicization of religion in the GOPwhite-house, the legislature and the senate, has allowed there to be political leaning in churches, so politics can be done from the pulpit.
islam has the same thing in their mosques, i saw a sign in the public prayer area, "death to israel"; so i guess that we will soon see banners in our churches with the "death to------------", as well.
since that will soon be the case, i can very well stay home and prayer by myself.
