Which is fine but the thread is about placing such in public school against the will of a large segment of those that have to pay for it...
As for refuting your opposition that's not a problem go for it, but so far you done a really bad job...
The rest was just useless ranting ... I enlisted in the military and today am a service connected vet and really don't care to go into to details or send you a copy of my DD214 or VA disability card or records of my 20 + surgeries over my life at the VA ... Just made the statement in support of your right to B'Leve anything you wish... To argue your Beliefs as you wish... But not to force those Beliefs on My Kid in a closed school system unless you provide Reproducible, Testable and Verifiable Evidence of such... So far on here you cannot provide such ... But it's fun to watch you sling mud that demonstrates you do not follow that you claim to B'Leve...
You have thrown out several smokescreens that will not go unchallenged.
I know what the topic on this thread is supposed to be and everybody knows that topic is not the center of discussion on the majority of what is posted here ,whether Atheists or Believers.
You stated"Which is fine but the thread is about placing such in public school against the will of a large segment of those that have to pay for it..."
You are among those who continuouly go off topic , as you well know . Nuff said on that.
I have condemned the MO of Atheists in their search for new members for their faith.
I have not seen or heard anyone who has , based on facts, been able to show that what I stated is not true.
To claim that" the rest was just useless ranting" is a lame excuse,not a rebuttal to what I stated.
I express the reasons for my belief and to imply that I am trying to impose my beliefs on anyone , especially your kid , is totally absurd.
I believe in God ,Jesus Christ and that it is God who is responsible for creating life and the Universe. I have stated the reasons for my beliefs .
You are requesting that I provide"Reproducible, Testable and Verifiable Evidence of such..."
when you well know that is not possible.
On the other hand, you can provide no evidence,as you are requesting from me, to support your belief that my beliefs are wrong, nor can you provide such evidence that God does not exist or that something or someone other than God is the creator.
Your claim that I am not doing a good job of refuting my opposition is your opinion,for which you provide no evidence.
I stand by what I have written ,no one has challenged what I have written by presenting facts that would refute what I have stated.
They have avoided responding , other than with irrelevant nonsense as you well know.
Watching and reading my sarcastic sense of humor can be fun , as you have aptly stated.
Stay tuned,,,At some point ,there is more to come

Well auschwitz and treblinka were death camps. Dachau was a labor camp. People died. Guess what, christians did it. Love, love, love.
Jehovah's Witnesses were in those camps too.....for their religious refusal to heil Hitler and serve in his military. Many of them died there. You can check the holocaust memorial in Washington, D.C. Now that is true Christian love!
Most other religions supported Hitler and his war effort. I suppose you know Hitler was a professed Catholic and had the backing of the Catholic Church.

You are right , can't argue with that....
However ,he and Wichetty have made references as to the location of my head and sometimes
I kinda respond in kind.
See, I believe in turning the other cheek..........Just so many times....
Now they will start whining. You're not supposed to do that , you're not a believer,Is your God proud of you..........
You see , they feel they have an unbridled license to insult,but are not man enough to take it when it's thrown back in their face
However , you make a great point in bringing my weaknesses to my attention.
God bless you.

That is a matter of opinion!
Persecution of Jehovah's Witnesses in Nazi Germany
Jehovah's Witnesses suffered religious persecution in Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1945 after refusing to perform military service, join Nazi organizations or give allegiance to the Hitler regime. An estimated 10,000 Witnesses—half of the number of members in Germany during that period—were imprisoned, including 2000 who were sent to concentration camps. An estimated 1200 died in custody, including 250 who were executed. They were the first Christian denomination banned in the Third Reich and the most extensively and intensively persecuted.[1] Unlike Jews and Gypsies who were persecuted on the basis of their ethnicity, Jehovah's Witnesses could escape persecution and personal harm by renouncing their religious beliefs by signing a document indicating renouncement of their faith, submission to state authority, and support of the German military.[2] Historian Sybil Milton concludes that "their courage and defiance in the face of torture and death punctures the myth of a monolithic Nazi state ruling over docile and submissive subjects."[3]
The group came under increasing public and governmental persecution from 1933, with many expelled from jobs and schools, deprived of income and suffering beatings and imprisonment, despite early attempts to demonstrate shared goals with the National Socialist regime. Historians are divided over whether the Nazis intended to exterminate them, but several authors have claimed the Witnesses' militancy and outspoken condemnation of the Nazis contributed to their level of suffering.

How can a person know which religion is right?
(1) On what are its teachings based? Are they from God, or are they largely from men?(2 Tim. 3:16; Mark 7:7) Ask, for example: Where does the Bible teach that God is a Trinity? Where does it say that the human soul is immortal?
(2) Consider whether it is making known the name of God. Jesus said in prayer to God:“I have made your name manifest to the men you gave me out of the world.”(John 17:6) He declared:“It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.”(Matt. 4:10) Has your religion taught you that ‘it is Jehovah you must worship’? Have you come to know the Person identified by that name—his purposes, his activities, his qualities—so that you feel you can confidently draw close to him?
(3) Is true faith in Jesus Christ being demonstrated? This involves appreciation of the value of the sacrifice of Jesus’ human life and of his position today as heavenly King.(John 3:36; Ps. 2:6-8) Such appreciation is shown by obeying Jesus—sharing personally and zealously in the work that he assigned to his followers. True religion has such faith that is accompanied by works.—Jas. 2:26.
(4) Is it largely ritualistic, a formality, or is it a way of life? God strongly disapproves of religion that is merely a formalism.(Isa. 1:15-17) True religion upholds the Bible’s standard of morality and clean speech instead of weakly going along with popular trends.(1 Cor. 5:9-13; Eph. 5:3-5) Its members reflect the fruits of God’s spirit in their lives.(Gal. 5:22, 23) So, those who adhere to true worship can be identified because they sincerely endeavor to apply Bible standards in their lives not only at their places of meeting but in their family life, at their secular work, in school, and in recreation.
(5) Do its members truly love one another? Jesus said:“By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves.”(John 13:35) Such love reaches across racial, social, and national boundaries, drawing people together in genuine brotherhood. So strong is this love that it sets them apart as being truly different. When the nations go to war, who have enough love for their Christian brothers in other lands that they refuse to take up arms and kill them? That is what early Christians did.
(6) Is it truly separate from the world? Jesus said that his true followers would be “no part of the world.”(John 15:19) To worship God in a manner that he approves requires that we keep ourselves “without spot from the world.”(Jas. 1:27) Can that be said of those whose clergy and other members are involved in politics, or whose lives are largely built around materialistic and fleshly desires?—1 John 2:15-17.
(7) Are its members active witnesses concerning God’s Kingdom? Jesus foretold:“This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.”(Matt. 24:14) What religion is really proclaiming God’s Kingdom as the hope of mankind instead of encouraging people to look to human rulership to solve their problems? Has your religion equipped you to share in this activity, and to do it from house to house as Jesus taught his apostles to do?—Matt. 10:7, 11-13; Acts 5:42; 20:20.

You can find extensive information about Jehovah's Witnesses by going online to Wikipedia and type in Jehovah's Witnesses persecution in Nazi Germany.
