I think with a little bit of research you'll find that the reasons for insane violence are far more complex. The Bible still exists. 80+% of Americans are Christians. Violence still happens. If God is real, and if he cares about kids being killed, then why does he watch it happen and not lift a finger to stop it?

In other words, why does the God of the Bible behave exactly as if he does not exist at all?

Ponder it.

The answer is obvious. First, a thousand years is but a day to Yahweh. Second, as many spiritual beings have posted on this thread, all religions pretty much contain the same wisdom. Third, in Taoism, "Inaction is a form of action."
So for the last couple days God has been meditating in what Quantumist would call, "And now for a moment of zen."
See? When you have convoluted, err.. pondered it correctly, God is perfect.

The bible was never in public schools. At least not legit.
The "schools" before the 1940's where all private schools, poor people's children worked in sweat shops for 12 hours a day and did not learn to read or write (those are christian values, we put a stop to it with child labor laws)

Then you would be Wrong.... For many years after the Constitution was ratified several states such as Massachusetts and Connecticut had Public Schools that Completely Religious Based and taught scripture.. They continued to do so until State Constitutions were amended to disallow such biblical based public schools.... It wasn't until 1833 that all states had disestablished religion from public schools as it was understood that the 1st amendment only applied to Federal Government being limited and did not limit the states ability to have State religious affiliation...

In FL the Gov. just signed a law that lets any religion pray at outside events like football games. A group of Satanist showed their support for this as we will be there to pray to Satan within the law
I know. I think the satanists ought to demand to be able to wear their jewelry in school, too.

Nope. You're wrong. These were not public schools at all. You've been misinformed.

Nope... from the period of the ratification of the Constitution until 1933 there was no concept of separation between schools and legislature and religious controls... Even the Concept of Separation of Church and State (An Extra Constitutional Construct) was not known until Jefferson's letter to the Baptists of Danbury,Ct in 1802.. But even then he was addressing the Federal Governments input on the Issue and did not speak to Local and State controls which was settled in 1833... And Yes those schools were Public Paid schools systems where the lands and teachers were paid by the local governments and all local citizens could send their children too.. Schools in Many states taught directly from biblical texts and taught biblical scripture from those texts as part of the class room teaching programs...

Today we have changed the concept of Public due to converting our Federal Government into a National Government so that Public means that Federal Funding determines Public but that was not the Intent of the Constitution... The Debate of having a National Governance versus a Federal Governance was had during the 1st Congress and the Federalists Won that debate... But Nationalist never gave up and slowly via Extra Constitutional and UN-Constitutional methods have today it can be argued altered the basic construct of a Federal Government into a National Government... Then since the 30's have slowly added a Socialist aspect so we are today very close to a National Socialist Government... The Next Step is to transfer power from the National Socialist Government into the hands of a Single person... Then History Repeats itself....

Chester wears his jewel encrusted pentagrams, a headband with little red horns, a Hello Kitty brooch embellished with a snazzy cubic zirconia and bone 666, and a big button that says I <3 satan.
He proudly carries his keychain that says "HORNY."

He's a true representative of satanism.

Oh my, maybe Kim Schwab and jeff Schwab of Campbellsville KY have more than stills underground, but a methamphetimine laboratory as well. No wonder pee paws alpacas were chewing the bark off trees and trying to mate the peacocks mamaw has. I hear that meth stuff is brewed with rye whiskey stills. People, customers, beware!

Well I thought I would throw my two pennies in even tho I'm sure this has been covered in one of the thousands posts.

Jesus never gave one public prayer. He never made everyone shut up while he talked to God. His instructions where to pray in private, I think he even mentions going into a closet. That being said, no one can ever take prayer away from you. You can always pray but sometimes you just can't do it out loud and force your prayer on others.

Lets just say that God was put back in schools, what religion would you want some stranger teaching your child? If you were Catholic would you want a Baptist undermining your teachings? Could all you religious people agree on one teaching for all the different religions? Isn't there just some things that need to be left to the parents to teach?

Schools use to also be segregated, do we need to bring that back as well?
