They are DISOBEYING my crucified Lord...The Dead-Guy-On-A-Stick... For He who was His Own Father and impregnated His own Mother, the Whore of Bethlehem, stated in Matthew 6:5...

"And 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."

Another Bible verse to put up...Mary's orgasm after opening her legs to Yahweh...Ezequiel 23:20...

20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Or, a bible verse that describes Christ's homosexuality...
John 13: 23-25...Christ's favorite catamite lying on his bosom...

23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

FAKE Christians dislike MANY Bible verses because they CHERRY PICK the bible. I'm a TRUE Christian and I accept even the raunchiest of bible verses. They make my armpits wet... Glory!

Bring what? The fundies have had nothing to bring but religious apologetics for centuries. That's why they have to rely on PR, political pressuring and legislation because they don't have any science to bring to science classes.

Good on the cheerleaders, but ultimately off-topic.

Not at all, it shows that people are standing up to atheists and practicing their freedom of religion during a school event! That's amazing!

Why isn't the pledge of allegiance done in public schools anymore?

And like I said, good for them. As it was pointed out in the article that the signs were made in their own time with materials they paid for, and since it's not during lesson time where promotion of any one particular theology is illegal and an obstruction to education, then good for them. Of course they may not have had this problem if they weren't dumb enough to keep trying to push creationism illegally into public school science classes for the past 5 decades or so.(shrug)

Actually I haven't heard of all many cases of atheists trying to teach atheism in public schools, but if there are then they are just as idiotic as creationists. Biology however is something quite different altogether.

Ah, but there's a twist -- Evangelicals are making children their missionaries in public schools.

It is done in public schools. Where did you get that idea?

I also like how many high schools have Youth for Christ during lunch.

You can't teach atheism. You just teach science and then watch the idiots not become atheists.

As an agnostic, I have no problem with kids who may be interested getting together on their own to discuss faith-related topics together.

Just when it is subjected en-mass to the student body (pep rallies, football games, etc) that I raise an eyebrow.

Yes I did (briefly scanned it, anyway).

Groups of kids, gathering on their own -- albeit with DIRECTION from their church elders -- enlisting OTHER kids to discuss the Bible, etc.

Eh. Not my cup of tea, and I would have expressed same in H.S. had they approached me, and moved on.

Yeah, everyone who doesn't think*** EXACTLY the same way Skippy does is an idiot. Clearly you're nothing like a fundie.

Still waiting for that apology Skip.
