Kinda funny years ago when the people use to fill up churches on Sunday and there main problems in school was chewing gum. They took god out of school and stop going to church and started following MAN and we have gone down hill from shooting in school and and total out of control kids.
Which is funny, because U.S. per capita crime rates have been steadily dropping since the mid 1990s and even more so in recent years and this goes for juvenile crimes as well...so says the DOJ Bureau of Justice Statistics. Less crime, less god in schools and many more illegal immigrants. What a strange thing, eh?

Yeah most people are unformed about prayer in school. Mandatory prayer is illegal but kids can still pray in private. What I can't stand is these theocrats in America that want mandatory prayer and teaching "intelligent design" nonsense in schools. I'm really getting sick of it.
Why evolition is science? Not science. its ajoke. Only GOD can change our species of lives. evolition makes nonsense.
Intelligent desing is science of GOD. GOD is schoolls is good for all peoples, even Muslins need to learn about the Real GOD. MAybe then there is to be no more Jihads if they let GOD into Muslim Korin book ofevil Muhammad.

Here is a serious question, but why couldn't this girl not look at this mural in the school if it "offended" her so much? It wasn't being forced upon her, no one shoved her face in front of it each day and made her read it, did they?
