Those santerian kids are gonna need a lot of time to sacrifice that goat. On the other hand, it'll be nice that atheist kids will get to sleep in a little.

No I was thinking about the time factor and the school day. I have no problem if children of all religions arrived at school early enough to worship in their own way.

Are you opposed to the House of Congress beginning each session with prayer?
Let me put it this way...are we, the taxpayers, paying them to pray or do Government business? Let them pray on their own time.

And you think praying is a better use of educational time?

Really? Then why haven't you answered these?
1. When I aborted at 3 weeks due to health issues do you think your opinion/religious beliefs should have been above my decision??
2. The law provides for abortion right here in America. especially to save the mothers life,
so why won't catholic hospitals perform them?
Believing in God and knowing that man lies and
makes up evil, why would you think killing your
baby would save your life?

There are too many predators even doctors that
want to hurt us. We need God and his mercy.

Children don't sleep well because
they are bothered. Too much nonsense.
Give them better. It is a new world.

Hey "Ink,"
Yeah, you might be somewhat surprised to learn that I completely agree with you on both counts; we're--PC/PL--already so entrenched in our positions, and so passionate about them, that neither side is willing to give so much as a micron anymore--which is the main reason why I don't bring up the subject of abortion much myself.
I also agree with your assessment of our becoming a country "full of offended people." Personally, I happen to find "militant" atheists to be as equally annoying as religious "fundamentalists."
Those folks who bring lawsuits that object to, saying the pledge of allegiance because of the "Under God," or the "In God We Trust," on our currency, or having displays of the "manger scene," or statues that have the Ten Commandments inscribed on them at courthouses...
I feel the same way about folks who're always beating their breasts about the so-called, "War on Christmas," or "Keep Christ in Christmas," or those who work themselves into a frenzy over the issue of gay marriage.
I sometimes feel like pulling my hair out and screaming, "You're getting yourselves all agitated over nothing!"
I also get what you're saying about "intolerance."
The blade cuts both ways doesn't it...?
Hey John-K, I hope all is well with you and your parents.

I agree as well. The thing that fascinates me the most is that the people who scream the loudest that the "other side" is intolerant are just as intolerant in their own opinion. They will never admit that they are acting in the exact same way as they are accusing others of acting.

The Catholic Church, thankfully, does NOT make the laws in the U.S. How you're getting the idiotic idea that I'm "so preoccupied with sex" is beyond me.

Who says people can't? Any student can pray at any time. Clearly what you're going on about is that classes don't come to a halt so the Christian children can make a show of praying, so it seems.
You nailed it! That is exactly what they are after, attention, a big show! praying alone a quietly does not produce the attention they are after.

Why do you insist on putting your nose, and your imaginary misogynistic sky daddy in the crotches of women? Why not mind your own doorstep and lather it in prayer while minding your own business. The health and welfare of women/girls will not be compromised due to your silly beliefs.

If a group of students prayed out loud in the classroom before class started that would violate someones civil rights. Yes?
I've already answered this. What is your point?

Again, it's not about being offended. And I don't find prayer offensive. Why would I, when I too pray?

Then do what people of normal mental capacity do when they are already online, and don't know what something is. Search online for it.

But in the meantime, stop deflecting. You made a claim that religion had been "banished" from schools, and it has not.

You are wrong.

Group prayer where everyone must participate, at a specified time such as the morning, lead by the teacher, no longer exists in public schools. However, anyone at all is free to pray on their own at any time. If people like Ink feel that is not enough then that's just too bad. As you say...pray at home before leaving the house. How difficult is that? School is for education and academics.
Exactly. Even if they aren't required to participate, it doesn't belong where they are a captive audience forced to listen to the prayers of others.

She's moronically trying to prove that religion has been banished from schools when it clearly has not. Just lead prayer has been. As it SHOULD have been. And I'd say the very same thing even about my own religion.

You're suggesting that allowing students time for praying out loud to their respective deities, should be a required part of the public school curriculum .

And you're being ridiculous, again.

Yeah, this seems like such a non-issue. Prayer has to be a public, scheduled, group activity? I don't think so.

Banned? I think not. Students can pray or read the bible as time allows, and they can certainly wear their religious jewelry, like crucifixes.

It isn't like teachers are saying, "Hey are you praying? Cut that shit out!!"
