The Freedom from Religion Foundation is trying to stop churches in a small Georgia town from feeding the high school football team pre-game meals. They don't like the coach's speeches or prayers either.

Here's what you had to say.

Buhay first:
"If you don't like the casserole, leave. If you don't like the prayer, leave."

WJ says:
"I have no problem with the meals. If they are simply served with no fanfare, no ceremony and no coach-led prayer."

Tisha writes:
"Let a major disaster happen to a member of the FFRF, and see how quick they turn that church down when they are the first to show up to help them in their time of need."

Michael from Enid:
"90 percent of the people we help are not of our faith - and I haven't converted anyone yet. But I do have a great sense of satisfaction in the fact that I can help someone else."

Tyler in Edmond:
"They can't stand that people of faith may actually be doing good things in the world."

From Leslie:
"I'm not a church goer myself, but I know God is real. Thanks to those volunteers that strive to make others' lives better thru [sic] God."

Finally, BJ asks:
"How about if the coach were Muslim and has the players bowing towards the east every hour or so? Comfortable with that?"
