You are one strange character.John,There could be other honest people in Union County,a few of them could even be women.The fact is that I met some of both,men and women.I did learn was that if you were paying a person to work for you ,they would tell you only what they thought you wanted to hear.Many years go I concluded that nothing could be destroyed,but did become other forms of matter.Later I learned that much smarted people thought the same.I posted last week something pertaining to energy and brain waves.It was written more in he vein of satire,but a part of it was objective.I was alluding to re-incarnation.

L.Wood I believe this may come as a surprise ,but I am not sure that removing prayer from schools has been beneficial to society.But I do suppoert seperation of religion and state.The reason being that the ten commandments were the only guideance that many children were receiving.When prayer was forbidden from schools it wasn't replaced,no teaching of respect for others and their possessions and love for others.Young children need both while their minds and consciences are developing.I don't think they should be told there is a devil behind every tree and they are going to hell at anytime.Instilling fear isn't a good motivating technique.
I really can't add anything to the conversation. I'm spent. I think I'll read the Internet.

BD, thank you for this post. I agree with you. I think it is the responsibility of the parents first to love, spend time with, teach ethics and morals, and make respect a huge part of life, before they send them to school. I support separation of church and state. I know we both have seen where the state or nation embraces someone who wants prayer forbidden from schools and anything else they can dissect out. The woman who started her drive to get prayer out of schools was an atheist and I blame media as well for bringing her to light on talk radio and tv.
I am old enough to remember the great teachers and schools I attended where prayer and chapel services were a huge part of life from elementary all the way through two colleges. Now that is just my personal experience and it was good I feel. At the last college I was allowed and encouraged to use God and the Bible in all my papers. I felt the freedom to write from my heart many times.
I remember how my parents and others attended school functions and helped in school events. I give God the glory for bringing two wonderful people together and having me as a daughter. I watched how they conducted their lives and it prepared me for my own life and business as well. My dad worked hard and later when he did business on his own he was honest. My mom was a great helpmate and she prepared me for a home of my own. They cut no deals nor took shortcuts; I always knew the "look" too it was more beneficial than a whipping.
No fear should not be instilled in children about anything to extreme. There are right methods to teaching about Heaven and Hell. Many children today come to know Jesus Christ at an earlier age than I did. If one knows Jesus then Hell is not scary because one is secure in knowing it will not be part of their afterlife.
i wish that laural wood would follow your example and be spent for ahwhile doenst she ever run down she goes on and on about how w onderful and religious se is like she has to justify it all to convince herself wonder if sh talkes like she writes on topics like one of them chatty kathy dolls blah blah blah blah blah blah
Chapel Services in Elementary School, must not have been a public school.
I too remember public school when daily prayer was piped into every room over the PA System, for some reason these were all Christian prayers without regard for the Jewish students. There was no teaching of morals, you were simply expected to behave, not be disruptive, pay attention to the lesson, and not hit your fellow students. That was the extent of the "moral" techings in the long lost good ol' days.
Tell us what colleges discourage reference to God in writngs if those references are pertinent.
Did God find it acceptable to have 20 children massacred at school ?
Did the NonChristian kids go to hell ?
Did the Jewish teachers that sacrificed their lives protecting the kids go to hell ?
If the murder asked for forgiveness did he go to Heaven ?
When you see the murderer in Heaven, will you shake his hand ?
WONDER NO MORE! All the tanslations are pretty clear that those who do not live by the Spirit will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians Chapter 5 is a good read.
