    That's pretty much how I see it as a state employee. I don't even have a problem with people putting up notices on the board in the lunchroom for church programs, or having posters in their offices with religious sayings or Bibles on their desks. I do have a problem with an organized Bible study meeting at the office or a prayer group within the office because of the way people use such activities to suck up to administrators who participate. If they want to do that on their lunch hour at a restaurant or something, fine, but otherwise. I've seen people switch churches and start attending a manager's church in attempts to get promoted. That disgusts me and makes a mockery of faith.

    Just saying that you don't want to be solicited again should be enough. If they continue, then it's harassment, and they are pushing their luck with UCMJ.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
