Canton, global warming must have you confused. The founders didn't care about what religion was paramount to another, the founders just didn't want the federal government to be propelled by any certain religion. That's all they wanted. And we on the right believe the same thing. But you see, words mean things.<quoted text>
Sure. Then we can teach all the children the Hindu creation story in our science classes at our public schools...right? I mean, considering the founders of this nation made it VERY clear that one religion wouldn't be above any other, then I'm sure you'd be OK with having a Satanic prayer meeting at the start of each public school day. You know, like how the Christians did when they forced prayer in schools and added "God" to the pledge of allegiance years after it was written. OI think, since no one religion is to be held above another, the pledge should say "One nation, under Beldarr the moon god..." Fair is fair in this free and equal country...right? Ahhh ha ha ha ha! Eat it, you little lost sheep.
See, Congress are those little critters who make laws and impose taxes. Congress is not the public school, Congress is not the judge in a court, Congress are not school teachers, Congress is not city hall. Congress is Congress.
The way our Constitution was originally written, the only people that had religious restrictions was Congress, nobody else. That's why you've never seen the clause "Separation of Church and State" anywhere in the Constitution. It doesn't exist. In fact, when the Constitution was ratified, several states had an adopted religion already.
But since the Constitution was bastardized to somehow mean Congress meant teachers and schools too, the growing trend is for parents to home school their children. There is nothing wrong with that. The Amish do it every day and have been doing it for many, many years.
As people come back home to teach their own children, the public school will shrink, and shrink, and shrink until there is nothing left of them. Who needs teachers? We have the internet. It's also my hope that eventually, some brilliant politician decides to create a law that pays those home school parents to take on other children in their neighborhood. Then parents can not only teach their children, but replace their lost income from staying home.
So bye bye union teachers and overpaid administrations, your clock is ticking. No more jobs with three month vacations.
