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 have found most preachers wives and their daughters, have very little morals and love to screw around.

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 ?

Wrong. God was on Alabama's side because they made the Fightin Irish look like a high school team. And Notre Dame has some splaining to do because of all the kids their priests rape every year. Catholics shouldn't even be considered Christians. Looks like Catholics need to start buying indulgences again with the almighty dollar. Try thinking up your own heart felt prayer instead of using a prayer written by someone hundreds of years ago. Use your brain. Don't let the poop determine your every thought, especially when it comes to praying.

How can you consider a church named after John the Baptist a "Christian" church? The church is the body of Christ, not John the Baptist. According to the New Testament, John anticipated a messianic figure greater than himself, and Jesus was the one whose coming John foretold.You might as well believe in infant baptism, you go to a church that honors the name of someone other than Christ. The last time I read about John the Baptist in the New Testament, which was not long ago, the daughter of Herodias asked for John's head. And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother. And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.(Mark 6:21-29, KJV) Jesus was laid in a tomb, but he was not decapitated. He rose three days later. That is when the church originated. You must have a new age hip bible, mine is one of the more than 5 billion printed. I also do not recall reading in the bible that the first time Baptists were mentioned was in Antioch. My bible mentions that Antioch is where the word Christian was first used. And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.(Acts 11:26)
