Compromising when it comes to this topic is very difficult because you want to be able to make both parties satisfied. This topic has become important because everyone wants to make up their own mind when it comes to their religious beliefs. Religion is strong in some cultures and not important in others. I remember when I was young we would recite the pledge allegiance every morning as a class and didn't have a choice to say we didn't want to recite it. Over time it has changed and it has become a topic of discussion. More people today do not want to offend each other so teachers and administrators would rather not participate in these types of activities. I don't think it. For this topic I believe Joe and Mary should suggest that if some students and staff want to pray, they should come up with a predetermined time and location for the prayer. I think it should possible be early in the morning before other students and Mary arrives so they will not have to attend be offended.
John wants prayer in school, and Mary does not. Describe a compromise position you think John and Mary might agree on, and identify any problems that position might encounter. Respond in approximately 100 words.
