If you want Prayer in your childs school then pay to send them to a private religious based school.

This nation is made up of people with many religious and non-theist views & customs. Imposing one on all children in a public school is not going to happen in the modern age.

You're religious, Christian (guessing), your neighbor may be Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Atheist, etc... why do you think their children should have your dogma forced on them?

No. That's illegal, and for good reason.

Christianity is not and has never been this nations religion. The Founding Fathers made it very clear by design the nation is secular. Consult the following, Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights.

Your statement is pretty ironic BTW, you speak of 'respect' while refusing to give any to people that do not share your religion/views.

Don't tell me to consult anything, you jackass. We have freedom to worship any religion that we chose in this country, ANY RELIGION! and, Christianity was the number one religion worshiped in this country as far aback as I can remember. That all changed when you bunch or queers and atheist came out of the woodwork.

Once you queers and atheist came out of the woodwork you have constantly beat down Christianity and Christian people. Publicly ridiculing them, and belittling them. Even going so far as tarring the then commandments out of buildings and schools.

What's next? Burn the churches? From what I'm seeing in the world today, I sure wouldn't doubt it.

Freedom to worship any religion my arse!

I agree with this post! If they don't bring back, or build back our manufacturing base, we're screwed!

Apparently you don't understand the different between individual free exercise of religion and the government pushing religion.

Can you provide any examples of atheists using the government to push atheism?

There are countless examples of Christians doing so.

Taking religion out of schools is the best thing that happened to Knox county. I don't want someone filling my kids head full of bullshit like mine was. I can't tell you how scared I was as a kid to go to hell. I would always wonder if I was good enough to get into heaven and that terrified me. I can't tell you how many times I would wake up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep because I would be worried about going to hell. No kid should worry about that shit, I would have been so much better off if I hadn't been brain washed to believe in this fictitious God. I would have been a much happier kid. If you want your kids brain washed then take them church. Don't bring that CRAP into public schools..

There are several well financed organizations, lobbying our government for their cause (Destroying Christianity at all cost). To think that it's not happening would be like living with your eyes and ears closed.

I can't think of them all right off the top of my head, but there are many. I don't follow foolishness, so it's hard for me to keep up with them.

That's what's wrong with Kids today, no consequences for their actions. So, they're running wild. Not paying attention in class, disrespecting the teachers, fighting among themselves. It's like a free for all.

If all I had to worry about when I was growing up was a talking to, I'd have seriously been a dangerous child. And please don't tell me that your little angel is way better than others and would never do anything like that. BULLSH!T!!

Feel free to remain blissfully ignorant crying of persecution all the while screaming 'queer' & 'atheist', truly makes you seem an educated adult. You are free to worship any religion you chose, equally others are free to not worship it or be subjected to it in shared public places such as public schools, government buildings etc...

If you don't like this Country and the way it's framed as secular, leave it, jackass.

I will repeat my question since you did not answer it.

Did you click the link, or do you wish to stay in full denial? I guess you porously overlooked that I said "I can't think of them all right off the top of my head, but there are many. I don't follow foolishness, so it's hard for me to keep up with them."

No, my kid doesn't fear God. He fears me when he does something stupid. He knows I will jerk a knot in his ass. That's all he should fear. Kids will always do stupid shit, all they need is parents to make them realize that when they do stupid shit there is consequences like an ass whipping. I don't care how much you preach at a kid about God that isn't going to make them stop doing stupid stuff.
