Forbidding Prayer - Whether in Mosques/Masjids/Churches/Synagogues - A Misguided Premise Lacking Truth

Reader comment on item: Leaving the Allah Delusion Behind
in response to reader comment: Prayers in Mosques should be discontinued

Reader Prashant seeks to control content, it appears here; but forbidding prayer that seeks truth does not solve what Reader Prashant desires as religious protection when considering how it is problem when the prayer leader incites adherents to hate and destroy those of a different beleif system. It is not the means of prayer that is defective, but the intent/content that violates the premise of why worshippers need to seek the truth; need to seek the good from a God that has the power to dispense such truth. There woud be no problem with Mosques that emanante the truth of the love of God, would there?
