Lets see Athiests have groups, get together and share beliefs and now want to control how people express their beliefs. Sounds like a bunch of hypocrites to me.

Objection, Your Honor. Counsel is alluding to facts not in evidence.
The ID scientists not only are not complicit, they, along with the Discovery Institute, OPPOSE requiring Intelligent Design to be taught in school. They also opposed the school board action which gave rise to the Kitzmiller lawsuit and trial.
Discovery Institute:. "Should public schools require the teaching of intelligent design?
No. Instead of mandating intelligent design, Discovery Institute recommends that states and school districts focus on teaching students more about evolutionary theory, including telling them about some of the theory's problems that have been discussed in peer-reviewed science journals."
Judge: "Objection sustained, Buck"
Mandated or not, religion has no place in our public schools.

Even if you call it science and history.

In as much as public funds pay for a lot of private school tuitions, it should not be allowed in private schools either.(IE: School Vouchers) They don't pay taxes but want taxes to pay for their schools.

A pack of thieves and nothing more.

So you have no validation of your claim?

Then admit it and apologize as a moral atheist.

Okay. That is not surprising-- you literally **worship** the evil, ugly bible.

What a surprise.

Nice theory. But it was our first time there.
And last.
I doubt that-- you are well known for your lying, for your exaggerated claims, and for your made-up stories that bear no relationship with actual reality.

Nope.

It is you who is losing -- every time a poll is taken in the US?

The number of unbelievers grows.

And the number of Genuine Christholes™ takes a sharp decline.

I call that winning.

Perhaps you should start a movement for a constitutional amendment stating such.

Then we have to stop teaching evolution. It's materialism breaches religious neutrality.

And Charles Darwin's only degree was in theology.

Stop this religious indoctrination!

I forgot which amendment prohibits public funds for religious activity in schools. Do you recall it? Could you quote it for me?

Thanks in advance.
