Jesus never force anyone to be His if they do not want that.
Religion have to be freedom of choice not force of human systems or religion tradition.
If we put Bible teach in school who will teach and how present Bible in big diversity of Christian Churches today.

I believe in Christian education, and we as a parents we got big responsibility how educate our kids about God.
Bible teaching is not a class,it is LIFE style 24/7
Mix Spiritual teaching with public school system teaching can come to conflict

Like many others, you seem to gauge people's "decency, compassion, ethics" based on how closely their practiced faith mirrors your own. And if someone professes no faith in a deity they are filled with inhumane-ness, abhorrence and depravity?

You can have all the faith you want, that still does not give you rights over others. Your "faith" does not give you the right to violate the rights of other people

If the school receives Federal Funding it would be Illegal for them to teach the Bible. Goes against freedom of religion. Unless they create and facilitate classes on all religions. So, it's all or none. Your choice.

I'm really sick of others Rights taking away from god fearing Americans. We can not live as our parents did because of others rights. We can't hang our gods pics, can't spank our children. Most are so busy we can't even be friends or neighbors. It's a sad world.

I wouldn't have any idea on how "closely" anyone's faith mirrors my own,
I figure that kind of thing is none of my business. I am not "them" and they are not "me".

So none of your judgement of me, even makes any sense to me.

Why are you trying to twist my words, when I already simply and plainly stated my belief, which included beliefs and lack thereof.

Again-

I refuse to believe in any "diety or attached beliefs or NON beliefs", be it a vapor of gases, the smallest scientific particle known, a worm, a group, a building, or anything, tangible or intangible, that REFUSES to acknowledge the RIGHTS of ALL people to live and let live PEACEFULLY, and to believe in what they so choose to, so long is it is NOT offending, insulting, critisizing, harming or hurting others in any way shape, fashion or form.

Because such belief (or LACK of belief) that Refuses to acknowledge the RIGHTS of these basic humane components, is NOT worthy, and knows NOT the ways of TRUE PEACE.

That is MY opinion.

You really have no idea how your parents lived, that's very clear.

Yeah. Remember that time we were at the park and you snapped those adorable pics of Billy, Timmy, Suzy, and Jesus Christ playing together? Then Timmy hit Billy and we all got rods and hit him until our parental angers were abated?

Oh wait...that never happened.

Jesus was a man. Is he exempt from the list of men who might deceive?

Because there are cases in the Bible where God either encourages deceit or ignores it. And Jesus and God are pretty tight.

What if God is lying to you in various Bible verses for reasons you mortal mind cannot understand, much in the same way he lets kids be raped and murdered for reasons you cannot understand?

Just something to think about.
