No, what I am saying is that based upon what I read in the story, I believe that the parents are biased, and I therefore do not believe their characterization of the alternative assignment that is included in the story.
That's it.

So you're going to dismiss their claims because perhaps they are of another faith? Or perhaps they believe differently than you? Their claims must immediately be invalid because Fox reported it?

Are you striving to find or become the "perfect" person with no bias? Find a robot boy!

Ah I get it. A good, old-fashioned male testosterone pissing contest.

So a coffee cup determines what type of experience someone engaged in meditation is having?

That's really interesting Karl.

No, evolution doesn't apply to the Constitution, only to biological organisms.

The founders didn't bar the teaching of religion in public schools.

That school is in one of the most conservative parts of TN. Remember the protest when the US Attorney said ripping Islam was illegal. I think we might see the same here.

You're right. They did not bar teaching about religion in public schools.

I've been down there many times Karl. They can protest all they want.
Not gonna change the fact that it is Unconstitutional for a public school system to endorse a particular religion.

If what was going on down there was the school system endorsing Islam, it will be stopped.

But I seriously doubt that the facts will bear that out. Let's all wait and see, shall we?

By now, the facts may not matter. TN has witnessed major divisions over Islam, all instigated by the left.

This appears to be in that same mold.

You're stretching there. Tell me more about the meditation.

No dukie, not stretching at all...you are deflecting.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Hindu_de...

The list of Hindu deities is massive,(which is where the "meditation" was performed).

It's a very easy question that I asked, apparently you won't answer it. I suspect that is because you would have to admit that your prejudice is only with Christianity.

But this is easy dukie (and this comes from a non religious guy) if the field trip using tax payer funds went to a catholic church, preformed the catholic version of meditation and they were given a free bible would you approve.

Below is a little link about Hindu meditation and its purpose.

Here is a quote "Yantras are visual tools that serve in meditation either as centering devices or as symbolic compositions of the energy pattern of a deity as seen by Tantric seers"

Karl, when the US Constitution no longer applies in the State of Tennessee, as James McMurtry wrote, "call us on the cell phone and tell us all why".

It would seem that it would be in your best interest to critically analyze what you read.

I work in a field wherein allegations are made in formal complaints that usually contain some truth, and some falsehoods.

It takes months for Courts to decide truth from fiction, and sometimes, they never can discern whether specific allegations are true or not. I have had plenty of opportunities to read "journalistic" accounts of cases I have had personal involvement in, and I have have wondered whether the reporters were even talking about the same case.

Call me a skeptic, one who has been around the block a few times.

All of that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that nobody has ever proven that God exists.

Ya think they indoctrinated those kids by teaching them about meditation as part of a one or two hour visit?

I sure don't

Again you deflect dukie.

One or two hour visit to Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral to teach about salvation through Jesus OK with you then?

Apparently you are unwilling to admit your prejudice.

I believe your liberal ideology won't allow you to concede that
using tax payer funds in the case of these field trips was in fact improper.

Of course that would conflict with your liberal ideology huh.

No.

The proper comparison would be a one or two hour visit including a portion of time spent explaining the physical and mental processes involved in kneeling, genuflecting, and praying in a Catholic ceremony.

Of course, you would like it to be more than that, huh?

errrr no dukie, that would also be an improper use of tax payer dollars and I would be against it.

What part of my statement disavowing religion did you not get?

Apparently you want to continue to deflect.

You libs and your tolerance for all things non Christian however never ceases to amaze me.

Just once it would be nice if you just put your agenda on the table.
