<P>Edith Kieler must die!&nbsp; --------- What is that you say?&nbsp; I guess if you have not heard that phrase then I guess you're not one of those Trekies, from STAR TREK that is of the original shows with William Shatner of 911 fame too.&nbsp; In that episode of&nbsp; "The City of the Edge of Forever," Kirk, and Spock "follow" McCoy by stepping back into the&nbsp;past at just before he arrives and during the days leading up to WWII.&nbsp; Soup kitchens abound with this woman, played by the actress Joan Collins who gives a speech before each meal.&nbsp; The "guests" are required to listen, but do NOT have to agree with what she says.&nbsp; I think if some sermon rather than a prayer be given then it's O.K. You can always say Amen at the end to confirm it as a prayer, or keep your mouth shut, that is until the food arrives.&nbsp;&nbsp; Yours truly, Joe<BR><BR></P></DIV>

<DIV></DIV>&gt;What's your opinion? Should prayer be required as a condition of 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;government-funded services?

<DIV></DIV>&gt;[full] FTN Transcript - WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 2001 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Stephen Goldsmith is USA President Bush's pick to head the new Office of 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. On CBS "Face The Nation" TV 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;talk-show of Sunday, Feb. 4, 2001, Goldsmith said: 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;"If you are homeless and you don't want to be mixed up with a religious 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;organization, you should have an option. Government should never force you 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;through the front door of a religious organization. If, however, you have a 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;choice of a faith-based organization and you, the individual, choose to go 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;there and you have to pray before your lunch meal, you should be required 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;to pray."
