Re "Court upholds prayer at public meetings" (Page A1, May 6): My concern over sectarian prayer as part of governmental activities, including public schools and meetings such as are the subject of the Greece, N.Y. case, is the growing constituency in the U.S. of faiths and religions other than Christianity. I do not advocate suppressing or limiting in any way the diversity of such points of view in this country. Indeed, it is to be celebrated. I would not, however, want me or my children to ever have to join in or appear to accede to a prayer to any supreme being other than my God and Jesus Christ because it became acceptable to do so. -- Robert H.
