Some of your questions are unclear and/or false dichotomies. If this is for school, you might want to consider rephrasing some of them. But I've answered them as best I could:

Age: 23-30

1. Yes (You should specify whether you mean therapeautic or reproductive cloning, and for what purpose the cloning would be done.)

2. Yes (Prayer should be allowed in school, and I don't think anyone would dispute that. The controversy, however, is over whether teachers and administrators should have the right to lead public school students in prayer. And to this question I would answer "no.")

3. Disagree (The Patriot Act isn't a method of fighting terrorism.)

4. Agree

5. Strongly disagree

6. Agree (False dichotomy; it should do both.)

7. Disagree (In charge of the internet in what way?)
