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.

A judgment by you of all Christians based on an African cult that clearly and obviously violates Christian doctrine.

Once again, a 'rational humanist' oxymoron.

A Kleenex for you and toilet paper for me.

Smirk.

Please give the New Testament verse.

Smile.

I have done nothing. You claimed Christians who are defined by the New Testament are to kill witches.

So you have no validation of your claim?

Then admit it and apologize as a moral atheist.

Smile.
So you ignore the Old Testament.

Good.

That's a start.

I agree. Did you think you were disagreeing with me?

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

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.
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.

Buck, I'll state my view, but won't belabor it: Religion has no place in our public schools. English, history, math, science, physical education, woodshop, yes. Religion, no. I don't consider creationism to be science and it doesn't fit into any of the other categories. I don't consider Intelligent Design to be science and it doesn't fit into any of the other categories--it's religion, thinly masked.
"Neutrality," whatever you may mean by the term, has nothing to do with it for me. My view is that there should be no government entanglement with religion, and to permit religion to be taught in the public schools is indeed entanglement.
I'm all in favor of what you propose, but only in private schools. The government should not interfere with the teaching of religion in private schools.
No, you are happy to have government entanglement with religion.

You simply have a different choice of religion.

And, from the indications, you don't know what religion is.

Also, people don't have to give you what you want. Do you always get what you want?

You claimed there are 100s of verses in the Bible commanding me to kill you and you refused to post even one.

EC comics of the early 50s were once vilified - now original copies of these are worth thousands of dollars.

HBO to its credit chose to air a number of these great stories. I've always enjoyed the laugh of the crypt keeper!

Should the materialism of Darwinism, as it rules out a god, be forced out of public schools on the grounds of violating neutrality toward religion?
It does violate neutrality, obviously. What to do?
We have the predominant religions in America saying God created Adam and Eve, and all foul of the air, beasts of the field.
Darwinism says no, it didn't happen that way. The beasts came first, millions of years before Adam.
So it has to go, right Counselor? That proposition cannot possibly be neutral toward religion.
Science belongs in the public schools; religion does not.

Stop with the materialism and neutrality bullshit.
