I just read on WBKO Logan County has a parent complaining about Bibles being passed out in school. Heres one for you...If you dont like it home school your child, better yet put him or her in another school. There are parents who might be offended if they dont pass them out.I bet you one thing...If this parent had a child to get sick, die, of if this parent was to get sick this adult would cry Oh God help me. What would you like for them to pass out?? Books on porno, drugs, lesbian/gay relationships, how to steal, make meth? I dont think so. Some parents never will get it right and everyone wonders why so much stuff happens at schools. You take him and his word out and look what happens. Put him back where he belongs. I hope you parents in this town fights back on this one. One parents stupidity.....REALLY... makes me sick.

I am a Christian and respect anyones opinions and beliefs but I can and will say that I was outraged at the " ignorance" of this parent. Religion us a choice as is everything in life. Those who do believe should not be penalized for it because some one else doesn't. Maybe if this parent was more open with her child on the belief that he should have then he would not have chosen to pick up and bring home that Bible, but then again maybe the child was trying to let his mother know that he can and should be allowed to have his own opinions and beliefs. Enough from me, only God can judge her!!!!!!!!

That's whats wrong with this world today...Americans have taken God out of the schools, etc.(even some Churches!) That's why we have "heathen" acting kids taking dope and stealing anything not tied down to pay for doping habits. You really feel like saying....DUH!

I agree 100%. This country is based on god. " in god we trust". One nation under god. Bibles belong in schools and god in those kids hearts. If anyone thinks not, then catch the next boat out of here. This is America love it or leave it. We need god in schools.

Shame on you all for trying to force your narrow beliefs on impressionable, young children! Bibles and all other ancient religious fiction should be kept away from children until they're adults and old enough to decide what's right.

You can teach kids to love their neighbor, be charitable, and to be well adjusted people without lying to them and telling them they're going to be judged one day. Why should young children feel ashamed about being 'sinners' and fear being cast into hell?

"In god we trust" didn't come around til 1956. This was founded to be atheistic. Our constitution requires a separation of church an state.

Well said. The same people who are wanting Bibles passed out in public schools would be up in arms if their kid brought home a Koran, the Book of Mormon, or some other religious text.

I believe that the child was given a choice. No one forced this child to come and accept a bible. Just like the child is given a choice weather or not to try out for a sport, or what to eat for breakfast or lunch. The Gideons have handed out bible in schools for years but they have never onced FORCED a child to accept a bible. If you do no want your children to have a bible then tell them to remain in their seat and not to accept it. Let your children make a choice. I was RAISED reading the bible and believing in God and never once have I fealt ashamed about being a sinner. You would think the parents would be concerned about what the teacher is saying/doing to their child behind closed doors, about the secrets that happen in schools that are hushed so that we as parents never find out. They are not worried about that, just mad their child made a CHOICE to accept something they probly (if truth be known) have never studied or even opened. Oh, and no one was preaching at school, or filling anyones child with anything just simply giving the child a CHOICE.

That's nonsense. You don't have to force a child to take the bible to do harm. TV advertisements don't directly force anyone to do anything, but they are powerful marketing tools because they trick people into buying crap they don't need. As a parent, I don't want sadistic, perverted, homophobic literature advertised at my kids.

If a kid sees the rest of his/her class get a free book, he/she will want one too no matter what's written in it. Kids are curious and don't have enough sense not to listen to bull$hit. If the bibles are in the schools, kids are going to ask questions about them. That's where the coercion begins.

That's why we have so many uptight repressed pricks in logan county-- they were tricked into hating themselves and others at a very young age. Their parents and church members teach them it's okay to be hypocritical.

This isn't the kid's fault either, the religious nuts have been practicing evangelism for thousands of years. It's their parents and teacher's fault for indoctrinating their children with garbage.

Keep god out of schools. First off it is un-Constitutional for any state funded school to allow any religious material too be handed out. It implies that one religion over another. As it also opens the door for other religions to pass out there material. I'm sure all the christians would be screaming it's against the Constitution if the church of satin was handing out there material. Secondly kids are cruel. Around eighty percent of America is christian. So it is safe to say that around eighty percent of the kids chose to take the bible, the other twenty percent, 6 kids in average KY class room, are left sitting there singled out. That sets the stage for more bullying in schools. I can see it now as a christian kid asks a non-christian kid why didn't you take one. We as adults know where this can lead. And I for one will not stand for THAT in school where my kids may go. For those that say " if you don't like it then home school them". How about the inverse of that. If you want your kids to learn about the bible in school put your kids in a private christian school.

What you people should be doing is thanking this parent for having the courage to do this. This is what is going to protect your kids. Unless you want to open the doors to all religions to pander to our kids, you should support this. I for one do not want a bunch of devil worshipers in town handing out dead rabbits but maybe that would be good for Logan County. Let's just bring them all in to talk to our kids about their religious options. No one has to force the kids. They can decide on their own. Maybe we can fill the gym with religious options like they do for colleges. Maybe you might learn something too.

I am a Christian. I love Jesus Christ and I follow his word. Jesus stood for this. I applaud the parent. I do not have the courage to speak out because you people are spiteful and mean. No one stops the kids from praying. They gather outside the school in the morning and pray. Think about it and stop being so closed minded. I pray for this parent too. I pray they have to courage to stay strong in the face of ignorance and hate. This is exactly what we need around here.

I love America. I don't believe in a god or any other supernatural nonsense. Yes this is a mostly christian nation, but it isn't a christian nation. How dare I say that is what I presume you would say. I would say that a high majority of the men that signed the Constitution were christian. Through there collective wisdom knew that and still true today, that all people are free to believe in what ever god they want or to not believe at all. People of all religious backgrounds came to this country because they could worship the way the wanted or not at all, because there is no state sponsored religion. That is what make America great. No where in the Constitution does it mention a god or of this being a christian nation.

After thinking about this some more I am really mad that the school has been allowing this. They should know better. I know how scarded I am to speak out. This is hard for me as grownup. I can't do it. Then I think about how hard that would be for those 6 children. They should not be cornered and called out like that by the school or no one!

Shame on you Christians for not giving this parent a hug and your prayers for strength!

Let's bring out the pitchforks and hang these stupid people as witches! Majority rules. Who cares?

Then next we can move on to picking another thing that we don't like and keep doing it until there is only one person left. Brown haired people must go! Eat meat on Friday during lent? You'd better run.

Where did everything come from? Seriously what made or created everything? Boy hope it is like the lady standing up and tell her child what it is is right. Hate to think she is wrong and hell is real. Can't imagine fire forever. And I can't imagine who or what made everything. And who made who? Who turned the screw? Oh I'm sure she knows better than a creator since we are I know now I can do anything to another person with no consequences after I die. So do what you feel with no consequence. B
