If you find that public schools or any public offices are promoting one religion over another, pleases report it to the ACLU or the freedom from religion foundation www.ffrf.org

Violations would include public schools endorsing a religion or requiring a prayer ( moment of silence is permitted) or if public property ( such as a park) is displaying religiious symbols ( I know this happens )
These are violations of the 1st amendment. Keep religion out of our publics schools unless the schools include equal representation of all religions ( including the ones y'all don't like, such as Muslim, paganism, satanism )

Do you think the majority rules? Well it doesn't. If majority ruled, woman would not be able to vote and African Americans would still be slaves as the majority did not want woman and African American to have rights. My guess is your a white christian male and so you dont care about anyone elses rights. I am not surprised by your disdain of the ACLU, it common of ignorant southerners :)
Btw please do jump up and yell a prayer to your imaginary friend and I hope the other crazies join you, that's your right as an individual and I respect others rights. I only have a problem when prayer is led by school administration. if it's student initiated then it's cool, but the school cannot endorse one religion over the others. Would you want the school asking students to join in Muslim prayer? A Buddhist prayer? I have a feeling that you wouldnt like that so much. Christian don't have more rights or special privileges over other religions or atheism.

Didn't they have a KKK meeting in one of the schools along time ago? I guess if you can have KKK meetings, you can have anything else.

This county was expressly NOT founded on Christianity. Do your own research, don't just regurgitate what you told in church.

Actually, if someone would stand and start saying a prayer and everyone else would follow, that is not a violation of separation of church and state. I agree that there needs to be separation, but the ACLU will demonize anything Christian, while protecting the rights of Muslims to push their religion upon us. I am assuming that you're an atheist, which I have no issue with, but you are one who has such hatred for Christians and that makes no sense. You (and those like you) have such hatred that you look for any and every opportunity to slam Christianity and cause issue any time there may be what you deem a violation of separation of church and state. If you were smart, you would embrace those with other religious views that do not infringe upon you. And speaking of, it is Islam that tries to shove their religions beliefs down the throats of others by imposing Sharia Law, discrimination of women (there are areas in England and France where women can't walk alone and must cover their face). We don't want that here, but it's those like yourself that will take no issue with Islamic law being forced upon us (and yes, they are attempting it today in several larger US cities).

Which denomination of christianity was this country founded on? There are many. Also can you provide evidence. That this country was founded on Christianity ? You can't because it's not true. There is tons of evidence that clearly demonstrates that the country was not founded on any religion. Please learn the history of this country that you live in before you open you mouth.

You obviously didn't read my post. I said it would not be an issue If a person started yelling a prayer and others joined in, I stated that it is only a violation if it is school led, student led prayer is fine.

Can you cite an instance where Islamic law is being forced upon you? If so, you file a compliant with the ACLU and the FReedom of religion foundation and they will take action on your behalf. They in no way support any violation of separate of church and state.
I don't believe in god, I believe in science and the constitution. Check the Americans United website. Please educate yourself. I'm all done here. I can't waste my time on those who think their faith is supreme to all others.

Islamic law was forced on the American people on 911!! And that is something Christians would never do. With that said, I fear no one religion or lack thereof. I KNOW the God I serve is real to me and that is really all I care about. Will I stand up for Jesus? YES!! What I don't understand is why do people who "don't believe in god" get so fired up at those who do? You don't believe, or you believe in some other religion, that has absolutely no effect on my life. The God I serve offers his love and everlasting life but He never forces it on you. Take it or leave it - it's always a person's choice. Christians do have rights though and if you want to get on the "fighting" side of this Christian just try and tell me I can't worship freely - yep that would bring you a whole basket of trouble. Christians do not fear you or your beliefs and the ONLY book or webpage I would even entertaining looking at is the Holy Bible. America is still free and you nor I have the right to tell anyone what they can and can't do about their faith or lack thereof. So why are you so angry? If you are not a Christian then maybe it is you who needs a history lesson and on some other webpage or book other than the left-wing made up garbage that they make up. That is my belief and I could not care less whether you agree with it or not. God is great!!

I would like to point out that "Seperation of Church and State" appears nowhere in the constitution of this country. That's a made up statute from a court case. And the 1st amendment allows for FREE demonstration of Religion (any religion or lack-there-of), and that imposing limits on anyone's rights (not allowing someone to demonstrate their religious freedom), in turn limits everyone's rights.

But I beat you sure take Christian Holidays off with pay. Since you don't want Christianity pushed on you, please make sure on Good Friday, Christmas Eve and Christmas you tell your boss you will work instead of taking it off with pay. Sure wouldn't want to push Christianity on you in any way!!!! You only complain about the things you don't like but will tolerate the others that benefits you.

It depends on what founding you're basing your opinion on. No one can argue that the Pilgrims were, by far, one of the most religious groups ever, and that they settled here and in many ways "Founded" this country. The other argument is based, not on historical fact, but current interpretation of what is written in the Constitiution. The original intention of the so-called "Speration of Church and State" Clause, was to make sure that the Government didn't force anyone to worship in a particular way, NOT to keep religious symbols from showing up in public parks, or to make sure that no one was offended. Our Founding Fathers thought we would be hearty enough to deal with something as offensive as a Christmas Tree or Star of David at the courthouse in town, by quickly and definitivly shrugging our shoulders and going about our lives, not pissing ourselves and crying to our lawyers.

Benjamin Franklin:
“When a religion is good, I conceive it will support itself; and when it does not support itself, and God does not take care to support it so that its professors are obliged to call for help of the civil power,‘tis a sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one.”
