If the link doesn't work for you go to AC-T and google "buncombe school board religion."
Get a clue, Michele, dear girl. Go to findlaw and read the Supreme Court mandates on keeping religion, bibles, evangelism, prayers, and all the other sneaky aggressions of religion out of the public schools. You can start with _Everson vs. Board of Education_ from the late 40's and move to current caselaw, including the Santa Fe Texas Independent School District case.

The rulings don't stop kids from praying as long as no disruption occurs, or gathering for a group prayer at the flagpole during break or before or after school hours. But school is a place for learning. It is off limits for Baptists to dumb down kids with the King James bible*. Read and heed. You want to open a Pandora's box? If the bible goes in, so does the crazy book of mormon, the pagan bible, the koran, the satanic bible, and the holy incantations of Cthulhu. And there will be utterly crushing lawsuits which reach deep into the pockets of the taxpayers.

Herein fail not.

The great poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, read copiously from the King James Bible. Although he was not a believer, he admired the passages as poetic and gave his mind beautiful exercises in the wonders of the English language.

I read in it too, but not because I believe. I get kicks out of its illogic, its contradictions and lies, its misogyny, its unintentional comedy, its bigotry and racism, its tales of horrors, its hundred justifications of slavery, rape of children, murder, and genocide, its erotica, its poetry, and beautiful prose.

O Ye lawyers, judges, priests, and politicians, HYPOCRITES! Woe be unto you, for ye are like unto whited sepulchres which indeed appear beautiful outward but within are full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

Maybe faith neutral but not political neutral. School children are baptised in socialism in many school systems. Most teachers were given the socialist baptism in college. The really amazing thing is that any Republican wins an election considering the brainwashing given in the taxpayer funded education system. It is hilarious that Republicans pay most of the taxes and by doing so they are cutting their own throuts.

They should not be allowed to mention Obama since he and some of his cult believe that he is God.

Public school is socialism. It's a publicly funded project for the greater good. It couldn't be more socialist. If you wish we could evolve into a society where everyone pays for their own private education. I doubt you could afford it.
