This Lawyer is just trying to make a name for himself over a non issue. If you don't like the way a school educates your kids then home school them. It's a free country.

Go down South or out West. Try telling those people to remove "God" and they will remove you !

In the Northeast we are more about equal rights and separating religion from reality.

In Nascar country if you don't pray before a race the bible belt police will notice.

This would never pass anywhere else but here.
