honestly the only difference between christians and muslims is that muslims follow the rules of God and Christians say screw God himself, we will take our chances that his "son" can get us in even tho we didnt do what he commanded us to do. even jesus said the law wouldnt change but the church changed it real quick in jesus' name.

VERY Interesting Analogy I saw online that completely applies to the topic at hand:
"Elephants are power animals, able to lift logs with their trunks and knock trees over using their heads.
You might think it is strange then to find that elephants are usually kept tethered by their handlers with a length of rope or small chain that they could easily break.
This IS because they have been conditioned. This is accomplished by trainers through the use of a heavy metal chain to tether the elephants while they are still young. The elephants learn during their development that they cannot break the bonds and they associate them with their limits, boundaries, and freedoms. Later, when they are fully grown and are of adult size and strength, they still believe they cannot break that bond and so they never really try.
From then on, only a rope is necessary to keep them from breaking their bonds, freeing themselves, and realizing their true strength. You do realize I am not really talking about elephants at all don't you?"
There is no better analogy to explain why: 1. religion doesn't need to be pushed on children. 2. religion has no place in schools. and 3. fundamentalists are so angry - they covet the freedom and happiness of the untethered.
They(religies) won't understand the connection, good post.

YaA doesn't want to recognize that it was 2 denominations of Christians who were killing each others' schoolkids in Northern Ireland for the last 400 years.

The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
That is right u take God out of anything or u dont include him in everything u are in danger anyway!!!!!!!!!!

60 degrees and clear near St. Augustine. Cooler today than yesterday but still have the windows open. Wife is pretty confident the worst of the cold spells are done for the winter, so she had me planting some hibiscus, ferns and annuals today.

Former Top Judge Says US Risks Edging Near to Dictatorship

• Sandra Day O'Connor warns of rightwing attacks
• Lawyers 'must speak up' to protect judiciary

Sandra Day O'Connor, a Republican-appointed judge who retired last month after 24 years on the supreme court, has said the US is in danger of edging towards dictatorship if the party's rightwingers continue to attack the judiciary.

In a strongly worded speech at Georgetown University, reported by National Public Radio and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, Ms O'Connor took aim at Republican leaders whose repeated denunciations of the courts for alleged liberal bias could, she said, be contributing to a climate of violence against judges.

What persuaded you to believe in a Creator?

In 1990, I spent a few months in Dublin, Ireland, doing research at Trinity College. As I was traveling home with my wife, Barbara, we considered the future of our children. We also decided to visit my sister who was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. My sister gave me a copy of the book Life—How Did It Get Here? By Evolution or by Creation? published by the Witnesses. The careful research that had gone into this work impressed me. It then dawned on me that I had accepted evolution without really questioning it. For example, I had assumed that evolution was well supported by the fossil record. But it is not. Indeed, the more I examined evolution, the more I became convinced that the theory is more bluster than fact.

Then I thought about my work with robots. Whose designs was I imitating? I could never design a robot capable of catching a ball as we can. A robot can be programmed to catch a ball, but only in precisely controlled conditions. It cannot do so in circumstances for which it has not been programmed. Our ability to learn is vastly superior to that of a machine—and mere machines have makers! This fact is just one of many that led me to conclude that we must have had a Designer.

Why did you become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses?

In part, it was because Barbara and I liked their thorough study methods. I was especially impressed with the research that goes into their publications. Solid research appeals to people like me, who want to probe into the details of things. For example, I became deeply interested in the many prophecies, or predictions, in the Bible. My study of those convinced me that the Bible really is from God. In 1992, Barbara and I were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Oh, I see. You're not against satanism. That religion is ok.
Your hypocrisy is showing.
