God doesn't belong in school. kids are there to learn the knowledge of the earth, not of the church. That is what church is for. That's also what home is for. You teach God to them. The schools can teach algebra to them.

God is everywhere,they didn"have church in school. The 10 commandment & Prayer was in school. I grew up in the 70's, you did not hear of school shootings. Some kids do not grow up in church. Just look around.!I was watching the History Channel, It was talking about HELL!They have everything else in school God is on our Dollar Bill ! Wake up!

The problem isn't god being taken out of schools. The problem is corporal punishment being taken out of schools. When i was a kid, i was spanked. And i learned right from wrong that way.

I did not say anything about food stamps. It is a good program when you need it,and lost a job ect. But not to live on them forever. My grandmother raised me,we did not have hole lot of money. She would babysit alot, She knew how to manage to get by. She did not drive.We did alot of walking, good people back then. We did not take food stamps. We were happy&went to church. Taught right, good neighbors. My mother got sick, after I was born.I worked in High School & babysit alot. So what has that got to do with God in Schools?

The Establishment Clause has been around since Thomas Jeffersons days and was put into the First Amendment to guarantee the freedom of religious choice. Putting religion into schools would violate this freedom.

Compelling children to say prayer or read religious literature would go against the constitution, see West Vriginia v. Barnett (1943) or Engle v. Vitale (1963) for an example. You cannot force people to do something that is against their beliefs or which could be interpreted as government involvement in religion. Forcing children to pray would be against this constitutional right not to practice. Regretfully, many schools have enacted the "moment of silence" which is actually prohibited by the 1985 case Wallace v. Jaffree.

As far as reading the bible or posting the 10 commandments in schools that goes against Abingdon v. Schempp. Also look at McCreary County v. ACLU of Kentucky. If you take a look around schools you will find plenty of religion still there.

There are also religious private schools and it is your choice to put your children into those schools. If you can afford that they your child can participate in the public school's "Student Christian Prayer Group" which run their meetings during lunch hour (or before school and after) in the classrooms. They post announcements on the daily loud speaker and they put up fliers for their churches on the schools walls. To me, that is a bit much,(like free advertising) but it allows the students to choose if they wish to be taught the christian religion. Just as students get to choose Spanish or Art.... or Chemistry over Physics.

It is not your right to force my child to "choose" your religion. Let them decide on their own, it's their constitutional right.

Hogwash! None of that ungodly nonsense started until the 1940s when the disease called liberal socialism invaded the courts and America began it's downfall. The Bible until then was required reading in all public scools as was Washington's farewell address. Read it! And while your at it read the Constitutional papers of the founding fathers and the "truth" about the fact that this country was founded on Judeo Christian Scripture.

The United States Constitution does mention God. In Article VII, the Constitution states:

Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America..

The U.S. Constitution does not however contain the words "Separation of Church and State" That is found in the communist marxist godless Constitution!

I am not religious at all. Not saying i don't believe in the devil or god or whatever else is floating out there but I sure am skeptical about it all and that is my own belief.
Most of my family is really religous and it drives me insane now days every time i go there and all they do is preach me. I respect their view on things and they should mine and leave it at that. If forcing religion or the bible in schools is what happened when I went to high school then it would of made high school much less (fun?) for me.
Not bashing religion or anyones beliefs because I don't share the same but it would get old for some and that wouldn't be fair to other kids.

I do believe in God &the devil,God is love, he gives us free will, to believe in him that is faith its our choice,My Grandmother was a Christian,she did not going around preaching allathe time. She showed love, she had joy.She lived it,& loved God. She prayed for us. See I grew up in church, the ways I thought were to stict,so I went out to the world its fun for a seasons,then you get mixed in all things, I became not so happy. Then after I had my son at 36,I felt differnt.I took him to church.I am glad I did.You don't have to preach all the time, just show Gods Love. But I will have to take up for God because I know he is real.People don't believe in God but we will die,or when God comes back,what if its true,you can not change what you done.God just wants you to have faith in him & love him!

You mean the show that describes how the way we view hell is based on Dante's Inferno and not from anything in the bible?
