Moment of Silence stands

In Texas public schools, children observe a daily moment of silence. The Humanists of Fort Worth have lost a court battle against this practice. That group meets (or met) at the Denton, Texas UU Fellowship. A moment of silence seems non-sectarian enough to me, but I guess not to everybody. As one wag in our congregation opined.
The Quakers meet together, all of them silent, until one is move by God to speak.
The UU's meet together, all of them talking, until one of them is moved, by God, to shut up.
