<quoted text>Can Muslim kids whip out a prayer rug at noon, as a group, in an American public school, or is it banned?
Can native American kids pass a peace pipe, do a rain dance, or perform coming of age rituals, as a group, in an American public school, or is it banned?
Can Wiccan kids perform a healing ritual, or a binding, or a communion with the Four Corners, as a group in an American public school, or is it banned?
When one approaches freedom of/from religion, in the context of the Constitution of the United States, one has to take ALL CITIZENS into consideration.
When one approaches religious freedom from the standpoint of religious persecution, one would be wise to consider one's own GUILT AND SHAME on that score, Christian.
While I'm not 100% on this, I believe that the ceremony of the peace-pipe was used as a "binding" element for antagonistic tribes who were planning to raid or go to war with one another, not to do so.
In that context, it's kind of hard to imagine kids--unless they happen to be members of rival gangs--going through the ritual of smoking a peace-pipe.
That said, I completely agree with the rest of your post; I find myself gnashing my teeth whenever someone says, "It's Freedom OF RELIGION, not FREEDOM FROM RELIGION."
What those folks don't seem to comprehend is that that statement is tantamount to saying that only "religious" people are worthy of freedom. If you're not religious...tough tookies for you.
And, yes--religious freedom is absolutely essential--as long as you believe in the religion "I" do...

Video: Kerry warns against "appeasement" in Syria
Full story: CBS News
Secretary of State John Kerry continued making the case for military action in Syria on Saturday, warning that the international community must not "be silent spectators to slaughter."
++++++++

Kerry talks like another liar about Syria, in his voice, tone and appearance, like Bush days lying about WMD about Iraq, as another failure.
His pointing to chemical weapons usage of August 21 in Syria is like Colin Powell saying satellite map of WMD in Iraq those days,as unreal but fake.

It was not just the "peace pipe" that deterred them from going to war with each other, it was what was in the pipe they were smoking, Peyote perhaps, they were too wrecked to even get on, and stay on their horses. lol

NO, it takes longer, but now you insist it take no longer than a quick christian prayer? I think the Wiccans should object to the quickness and obviously meaningless of the christians and demand they take the time and detail like the Wiccans! Shoe not so comfortalble on the other foot?

Sweet darlin', if getting wrecked on the natural world prevents us from seeking to war...? Let's get wrecked, and seek the peace.

I imagine it on the regular, John. If that's what it takes, bring it on. They're already smoking everything but their shoes, as it is.

May they attach MEANING to the smoke.

I know I do.

No matter how much you PLM zombies want to rape the language, an abortion is the termination of a pregnancy; it involves removing the z/e/f from the uterus. Scraping frozen cells out of a petri dish is not the same thing.

Abortion means to end the life of a human. Location...in the womb...in the petri dish...in the freezer...is irrelevant. Spontaneous abortion is a natural death. Elective abortion is killing.

You used part of my post and said it was the point I made, which is completely dishonest. Without BOTH portions, it is no longer my argument--it's yours.

<quoted text> Drowning is another option. Strangling is yet another. Oh, starvation and beatings is another(someone in NY recently did that to keep her "motherhood is optional not required" motto).
The sane mothers gave their child up for adoption. Killing wasn't even thought of.
Hey, go join that forum that I suggested where women like you support killing instead of prevention or adoption. Birds of a feather.......
And PLEASE keep staying pregnancy free.
My last statement was "stupid" you say? LOL umm....you DO realize that it was cpeters words that I agreed with. So, you actually think HE is stupid. UT OHHHHH!
Of course I left out the condom part. I disagree with the use of artificial birth control. I DO agree with not having sex though(when fertile) IF you must avoid pregnancy for a specific situation.

Bushwa, Pete. Each duploid cell, with its own signature DNA is human. Their definition....remember?

To deliberately create life, with the express purpose of destroying it, is tantamount to premeditated murder....if indeed abortion is murder. JMO

But for some odd reason, IVF is sacrosanct, while abortion is anaethema.

Go figure...spontaneous abortion isn't even worth discussing on a lawmaking scale.......

Unless one is a Senator arguing for prosecution of miscarriage...

Since I TAUGHT safe sex seminars for years, yes I did. But then, I didn't say just condoms, did I?
BTW--the first rule of safe sex is that you are responsible for your own health. If your partner plays irresponsibly and you allow it, you do not have any right to complain.

If there is no God then we are all just happenstance living for a short time on the planet. Does it really matter what we do or how we live?
Since I do believe in God, I know that I am here in some small way to contribute to His plan. Whether it is someting on a direct and personal level or even if it is indirectly through a family line of someone else.
I think it is important as a wife and mother to set good examples of faith, ethics and morals in business and in my personal life.
If I believed there was no God I probably wouldn't care so much.
People who only believe that they live, eat and die, to me, are sad.
Well said and seen through the eyes of a Child of God. Those who don't know this God have No way of seeing it, and makes me sad, plus upset with myself, for not being who I have the power to be :(

Would you PLEASE come out of the closet already, Prince Poofshute? Everyone knows you're gay, except your dad, and he's only in the dark because he wants to be.

Obama is already damned and downed in Russia's G-20 Summit.
Obama is already downgraded and burnt in boiling water deep trouble. Obama has fear as a downout loser coming out from G-20.

Pictures show when Putin was looking at the G-20 summit people in the line up, Obama is very afraid of Putin, by trying to close his eyes by being scared, while some others just laugh, like German's Merkel.
Obama is totally bruised and feels burnt out in Russia, that he has become as a frightened freak.
