The second part is something even kids should know nowadays. If only they taught it in ALL schools.
Not only are schools teaching safe sex, they're teaching sex to a crowd that is far too young. Thanks to the Liberals, they're handing out free condoms in school and demonstrating how to use them with phallic fruit. Not only that, 13-year-old girls can go get free abortions without their parents knowledge or consent, again thanks to the Liberals.

In my old church, it was always the individual that was responsible for their own actions. It was always the individual that took the blame, whether they listened to God's advice whether they listened to the devil's tricks.

I've always been taught, and I've always agreed, that every action we make is of our own doing and we all bear full responsibility for our actions, whether they're good or bad.

Yep and perpetrated by heterosexual males, in the majority that is.

Some heterosexual females are quite foul as well but they mostly just let their little girls get raped.

I like that our country provides for down and out single mums, they don't need to be that desperate for a man.

Nice backpedal, if I wasn't paying attention. You very clearly said that prayer is disruptive.

You then went on to imply that disruption in public school violates the United States Constitution.

Weird.

Would you rather have the 13 year old girl destroy her life and the life of the child through neglect and poverty, by being forced to become a mother?

Don't you think it would be much better if she did NOT become a mother at 13? Do you think a 13 yo boy makes a good supportive father? Who buys diapers, pays the doc and hospital, formula, food? Grandma and grandpa? Maybe they don't want to become parents again at close to retirement age.

If you think these kids are not experimenting with sex at that age, you are nuts. If a condom will stop 2 kids from a hell of a life, its worth it.

“Superstition does not belong in the place of learning.”

Here’s the problem with your statement. Atheism for some reason is accepting of the occult.

All Disney & children stories based on magic would be banned if that were the case. Neither would Harry Potter books would be allowed.

Of course all these books based on fantasy, superstition, folklore, and the occult are accepted in secular schools. But the Bible? Ohhhhh nooooo they can’t have the Bible. That would mean fairness and shelving the biases.

Hypocrisy doth abound my friend.

The way I read the post, the point was that prayers that disrupt the educational process are not constitutionally protected, not that they violate the Constitution. The difference is not even all that subtle. Since they are not so protected, school policies that limit or forbid disruptive prayers are valid and may be enforced.

Saying grace at the cafeteria table is thus protected, while loudly reciting the 23rd psalm during math class is not. The student who does the former should be left alone while doing the latter can (and should) result in disciplinary action.

My mother taught me all I needed to know about RELIGION .
"You better pray that will come out of the carpet."

The position of the atheist is that the theist has not successfully met his or her burden of proof.

Proof, with regard to gods rests solely with the side claiming their existence.

When phrased to focus on faith, the claim typically centers on a fundamental misunderstanding of the meaning of atheism.

They have erroneously convinced themselves that atheism means absolute certainty that no gods exist.

They reason that to be absolutely certain without proof is a form of faith.

Atheism is not about certainty at all; it is about doubt.

Therefore I remain dubious until evidence surfaces to the contrary.

Apparently the 13 year old girls weren't watching the phallic fruit demonstration.
