What Would Jesus Say?

I was reading news on and I noticed an NBC Report section on Faith in America. One of the articles was talking about a movement to bring faith into the workplace. Anyway, they had this pic of a PromiseKeepers rally somewhere. I thought to myself, boy, we sure are lucky that these people are returning America to its Christian roots. I'm sure Jesus would really encourage these sorts of acts of public faith and prayer, right? A fine question. What WOULD Jesus say?

Well, oddly enough, he said: " 5 And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you." (Matthew 6:5-6.)

I suppose I could comment further, but I'll let you draw your own conclusions.
