The fact of the matter is that Christian Schools do a better job in terms of teen pregnancy, test scores, juvenile delinquency, gun violence, college entrance examinations, SAT, ACT scores than liberal public schools, yet liberals demand more and more money for government run public schools.
You have endorsed all things Muslim including wearing of burkas, foot washing stalls, and pork prohibitions and bans.
So who is the liar here?

Liberals are the problem (since they are really atheist without the courage to come out of the closet). They are a cancer that erodes the values and traditions a culture, they are the enemy within.
Liberals have banned pork in public schools, built foot washing stalls at University of Michigan, Dearborn campus, forced students to wear burkas, devised segregated swimming pools - Harvard.
Goodness, Cranberry, you do engage in a rich fantasy life.

Yes, liberals are the problem. So are conservatives.

Slavish adherence to ideology is the problem, and apparently your problem too.

Would that be like everyone who voted Obama in because the campaign literature said that he would protect their Social Security checks, unlike the Republicans? THAT kind of extremely inaccurate perception?

public schools are paid for by taxpayers.

Christians are the majority of the USA population since forming government to present.

Those that pay for a government service have every right to demand how it is rendered.

Because liberals hate what Christian parents teach their children at home, we have liberals teaching their agenda to the minds of mush we call children at school.

Since the mass majority of USA citizens want the pledge of allegiance, and a prayer for our children in school, those that disagree need to send their kids to private school or leave America.

If people refuse to assimilate with the mass majority, then they can be shunned by the mass majority.

when are we the people going to grow some, and throw out by force the moron school administrators that think suspension of a 6 year old chewing a pop tart into a gun shape is criminal behavior?

Bill Ayers was a College professor? Are you kidding me?

Liberalism is a cancer that is destroying this country, and now we are terminal.

Get your ideological head out of your ideological ass.

Also, you should repeat high school civics, because you obviously do not understand the nature or reason for having a Bill of Rights in the first place.

It's to gaurd against the tyranny of the majority, not to promote you, you asshat.

F - repeat the class.

I love this ridiculous notion that only conservatives are Christians. You'd have to be a real moron to believe that.

Truer words were never spoken. I'm all for prayer in school. As long as everyone can pray or decide not to pray. It shouldn't be forced on anyone and it should be kept to oneself.

Even the Gospel of Matthew instructs Christians to pray in private:

When thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

You may call yourself a Christian, but your actions insult the religion and the god you claim to represent. He told you not to act in this way.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Nothing to back it up is you.

Do you really think your life of going from the upper middle class suburbs of West Cleveland to the ghettos of South Columbus is indicate of sound mind and good judgment?

Liberals don't believe in spanking. In fact the clueless and dysfunctional Reader accused me of blasphemy for quoting the well known text of "Spare the rod and spoil the child."

Liberals know that school that provide clear boundaries and rules produce better citizens, students, high test scores and eliminate teen pregnancy.

Who but a liberal wants to perpetuate evil in the name of freedom, lies in the name of truth.

Liberals complaining about evil are like hogs complaining about mud. Its the nature of swine to love mud and the nature of liberals to love perversion and chaos. Like one of their own said recently - never let a crisis go to waste.

If we have arrows painted on all the floors of our prisons pointing towards Mecca for Muslim prayer, and do not serve any pork to any inmate in deference to the Muslims, why is anyone getting upset about prayer in schools, as long as it non-denominational or the words 'under God?'

This country has way bigger problems. The intolerance on both sides is unacceptable.

But some of our friends on the left like to blame it all on society or someone else other than themselves, and then find a way to profit from it.
