That letter is one worth reading. I especially like how he doesn't try to bias his nephew and allows him to draw his own conclusions and build on morals with or without a god. It's interesting to note that religious fanaticism existed even then.

They should have to pay to send the students to deprogramming camp.

This is why the United States is falling so far behind other countries in educational achievement. How effectively can these students compete In the world?

There is a reason why the Supreme Court of the United States Interpreted congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof as meaning you cannot teach creationism or intelligent design in public school. We don't want to become Afghanistan. Evolution has been established and supported with evidence and fact. Creationism has been 2000 years of abysmal failure to furnish any logic reasoning research imperial evidence or sound science.

I agree that people take things out of context. The Jehovahs came by my house today and left me this magazine. It has the question "Does God Care About Women?" I have always felt that the Bible condemns women. However, this article in the magazine presented a whole different perspective to me. I typed following section in response to what you said about women.

“Let the women keep silent in the congregations,”
wrote the apostle Paul.(1 Corinthians
14:34)What did he mean? Was he belittling
their intelligence? No. In fact, he often
referred to the wholesome teaching of women.(2 Timothy 1:5; Titus 2:3-5) In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul advised not only
women but also individuals who had the gift of tongues and prophecy to “keep silent” when another believer was speaking.
(1 Corinthians 14:26-30, 33) Likely some Christian women were so enthusiastic about their newfound faith that they interrupted
the speaker to ask questions, as was the custom in that part of the world. In order to avoid such disorder, Paul encouraged them
to “question their own husbands at home.”—1 Corinthians 14:35.

It was a good magazine. If the Jehovahs come buy your house you should ask for it.

How much do you really know about Afghanistan to make such a comparison? As for empirical evidence and our reasons for being at war with them, they make no more sense than the Russians in the 80's, equally genocidal acts of murder. If we want to know the future of the US government, all we need do is look at what happened to the Soviet Union after the war with Afghanistan, which we're losing and will continue to lose no matter how hard we try. Our very involvement in Afghanistan is degrading the people of America and created a nation of junkies. 1 in 10 homes in this county are empty, abandoned, and stripped of anything valuable. We are our own worst enemy. In April of 2001, the Taliban banned Opium production, and within 6 months, we were bombing them. Now the production is in excess of 8000 tons per year. The thought of even taking the moral high ground with respect to that country and what we did to them and ourselves, I for one find repulsive.

It matters because the very nature of fundamentalist Christians is to be prejudice and this group has discriminated and have caused discrimination on the basis of religious believes. The administration by doing nothing gives their quasi approval. Is it worth having these people and risking their funding. Also the potential liability caused by ignorance. I and many other parents and taxpayers in this community have had enough. The whole idea of these teachers getting these kids to form up to defendcthese illegal acts and the dumbest parents get involved and your wonderful Christian group becomes an angry mob. They were all God fearing people who so violently murdered Jesus.

So you have a child or children in the middle school this year & they are teaching according to their religion at school?

AMEN! Too many parents send their kids to school, sports and church for them to raise. Kids need a home life of love, discipline and dignity. The ONLY constant in their lives is home, at least it should be. Look at how many teachers one child will have before graduating. With that many adults influencing their thinking a strong and positive home life is a must!

The current turn of events at the middle school are Gods will. Remember the lord works in mysterious ways and we cannot always understand his purpose. When will they act on anything? When will they eliminate the hostilities of the current environment created by the religious activity that has no place in school. What did they expect when they let the us and them situation continue.
