And there's not a damned thing you can do about that.
I've told you...I think the Beatitudes are an excellent source for guidance in living. I don't care where the words came from, or where you think they came from. If you were to look into that issue a little deeper than merely opening your Christian Bible, the results of your research might actually surprise you.
So you go ahead and sling your arrows, and tell me I'm going to hell. I don't care.
I smile every time I read about the pictures of Jesus, and crosses, and bibles being removed from public schools. I hear there was another victory down in Southern Ohio this week.

The result of any search regarding the Beatitudes [aka Sermon on the Mount] lands one at the Book of Matthew, Chapter 5, wherein Jesus himself proclaims each and every one of them. No surprises there.

And the very same Jesus who proclaimed those Beatitudes also proclaimed in the Book of Mark, Chapter 9, Verses 42-48:

"Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell,'where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.'"

Do your own research Bubba. Go directly to those universities. But before you do that, ask yourself...Do people pay tuition and student fees to attend colleges and universities by choice?
And is public education provided to all in grades K through 12?
How about after high school?
woof
your answers..........

some people pay to go to college, and work while in college to assist in payment of tuition, and utilize student loans to achieve a college degree.

others have college 100% paid for with handouts.

yes 100% of citizens are entitled to a public education. k-12. It has been this way for all of my 51 years.

every person I know who attended college, did so of free will.

your above post is another failure of yours to spin a new paint job on your race card. Your card is tattered and moldy.

More fantasy there, fella.

The notion of 100% college tuition payment with "handouts" is illusory at best. What is typically available, in terms of public tuition support, are Pell Grants, which might cover tuition cost for a Community College if budgeted carefully--depending on credit load and cost. Beyond that are subsidized loans, which are pretty widely available to all.

Reality is that we have seen a big shift from direct tuition payment for low-income students to loans for most students.

Now, that is public support. Most colleges and universities and have a plethora of private aid available from various funds. My understanding is that, particularly for private colleges, this is used to attract students who are among the best and brightest. And they are free to target such private support any way that they choose.

Ok Bubba, you're half of the way there. Now go to those universities websites, or call their Administrative offices or their Physcial Plants/Maintenance offices and inquire about how those foot baths came about, and where the money came from to pay for them.

You aren't going to get RS to look up anything.

However, I have looked into this stuff that keeps resurfacing. In most cases the "foot baths," which are not ritual or holy spaces, but merely places where feet can be washed--and look pretty much like mop sinks--were installed in response to complaints from others that Muslims were using sinks to wash their feet.

Public universities have for generations had on-campus buildings known as "chapels" set aside for worship space--frequently billed as "non-denominational" (another way of saying "for any Christian worshipper").

The time to start worrying is when worship is banned from campuses, or required of all students. Accommodating the worship of the student body--so long as all are accommodated--is not an infringement on the right to worship, nor can it be viewed as the creation of a state religion.

BTW--do they still serve fish in the cafeterias on Fridays?

The reasons aren't "bogus". You just don't agree. I didn't bother to click your links...I read about this months ago. Its not a first Amendment issue.
On the other hand, regardless of what transpired in 1947, hanging a picture of Jesus in a public high school does violate the First Amendment, whether you think so, or not.
Go read the case law.

Jesus Christ is a historical figure, and also my personal savior.

However, Muhammed is also a historical figure. I do not accept the beliefs of Muslims with regard to earned salvation--which I would say is an essential difference beyond the role of Jesus. And I would also point out that a good many Christians struggle with the notion of earned vs gifted salvation.

With that said, I have no more problem with a public space providing accommodation to Muslim beliefs than I have in the far more numerous accommodations to those who follow my own faith tradition.

What would appear to be a sticking point for many is their preference (and for some this is grounded in their growing-up experiences prior to Supreme Court clarifications on the issue) for public schools to teach Christian beliefs through such means as the hanging of pictures and statements of the Ten Commandments, Beatitudes and Lord's Prayer, inclusion of prayers in rituals (such as lunch, graduation or assembly time) and the daily recitation of the Lord's Prayer or Twenty-third Psalm, etc.

No student ought ever be denied a personal right to prayer--however this is quite different from being taught how to pray. As schools and other public entities and workplaces demonstrate willingness to allow Muslims to pray according to their prescribed schedule, Christians--who have truly been granted a great deal of invisible privilege along the lines of respect for their religion--seem to be of a mind to respond with jealousy. In fact, no Christians have ever requested a time of private and personal prayer at set times according to the traversing of the sun--because it does not accord with their beliefs.

And while Christians may well sport ashes on their foreheads annually, none have ever observed foot-washing in conjunction with prayer. But, many do seem to get huffy that Muslims do so.

As a Christian, I suggest that it is time to get over our jealousies and support a system of government that allows and accommodates our beliefs by virtue of doing the same for all believers.
