Hold your breath while you wait.
I would be waiting a long time, since there is none.

Now you understand that a prayer said over a PA system in a public school violates nothing in the U.S. Constitution.

It would violate the old USSR constitution, if there still was a USSR, and if we were there.

But nothing in the U.S. version.

Do you ever wonder why so many atheists are under the false impression that there is such a provision in the Constitution?

Religious indoctrination? Atheists would like to live in the USSR? Atheists are just stupid?

Maybe you have the answer.

No, it means that different justices interpret the constitution differently. Study the history of the court; they have changed their minds many times over many parts of the Constitution.

GLOBAL WARMING SCIENTISTS TRAPPED IN ANTARCTIC ICE
"...a group of global warming scientists are trapped in the Antarctic ice. If you missed the irony of that situation, it is because much of the mainstream media has glossed over that rather inconvenient bit of hilarity. As an example here is an Associated Press story that avoids mentioning the real mission of the scientists aboard the icebound Russian ship..."
Also, the ice-breaker ship that came to rescue them got stuck. The ice was much thicker and more expansive than usual for the time of year. But I bet you didn't hear about this on the evening news. Why is that?
Bwahahahahahhahah....
So like I said, no.

That's real interesting since you just got through denying that you preach abstinence and insisted that you "promote responsible sex".

My oldest son is nearly 18 and he hasn't done any of the irresponsible things I did. Hell, he hasn't even kissed yet. I've got him more interested in his education rather than getting his dick wet.
My dad raised me wrong, he never discussed the birds and the bees with me, never warned me about pregnancy, never taught me shit about women. When my son was born, I swore to him that I'd do better.
So far, so good.

You really need to take a class in US history. The settlers that left England and headed for the US did it for religious freedom, not because of supposed religious tolerance. Back then in England, there was no religious tolerance, if you were an English citizen, you were a Christian. Period.
It's not really religious freedom when they began killing other Christians on these shores for having a slightly different view of Dear Leader.

It's an oblate spheroid.

Only, if you tell buck that, he'll say it's not that either.

He'll point out that with its mountains and valleys its none of the above, or some other BS.

Buck hates science because it disagrees with what he wishes were true.

Perfect? Who said anything about them being perfect? I was talking about them knocking up a girl, not being perfect.
I also said nothing about tossing them aside or alienating them, I said I've warned them that if they do get a girl knocked up, they are financially responsible, not me.
Maybe you should re-read my post, I won't be dragged into another conversation of what I didn't say.
Silly Christian.

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right,‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

No, I'm not saying that at all. I'm all for early teens not having sex at all.
<quoted text>
I don't choose the age limits, darling. The laws of the United States do. United States federal law says at the age of sexual consent is 18. The majority of states see it as 16, but some are 17 and others stick with the federal 18 year mark.
So handing out condoms to 15-year-olds and allowing legal abortions without the parents knowledge or consent to a 13-year-old girl should be a federal crime.
Compare two schools of equal demographics in two different states, one that allows for condom distribution and sex education and one that "teaches abstinence". Adjust for abortion using the same demographics for those individual areas. The school that teaches proper sex education and distributes condoms will have a teen pregnancy rate a tenth of that in the "abstinence" school.

Texas "teaches abstinence". Texas had the highest rate of teen pregnancy and the highest rate of children having two babies in their teens, in the nation.

We share a goal of children not having babies. Why do you go against conventional wisdom and common sense and actively trumpet to thwart that goal?

My solution is keeping my kids occupied on other things and monitoring, heavily monitoring, any and all Internet activity.
All a parent needs to do is spend time with their kids and make them understand responsibility, starting from a very early age. For a long time now I've been teaching my kids about bills, about money, and about taking care of themselves and how it's done.
I've also warned them, countless times, that if they ever do knock a girl up that they're on their own. I've given them a coldhearted promise that I will not buy them one single diaper if they can be that irresponsible.
It's called Toughlove. I don't think many parents nowadays are capable of doing that. My sister-in-law for example, she's told her kids that they don't ever have to move out, but they can live with mommy and daddy forever. Doing stuff like that will give the child absolutely no motivation to excel or succeed in their own lives. They'll remain dependent on their parents as long as they can. I completely and wholeheartedly disagree with that kind of child rearing.
Child rearing.? Bwahahahahaha.

It has nothing to do with belief. I don't believe that water boils at 100C at MSL. We have evidence that it does. We have no evidence for any of the different versions of Hell among the 40,000 sects and schisms of Christianity. Not only do they disagree on what or where Hell is, they can't even agree that it exists. Why should I take your word over the word of potentially a billion of Christians that disagree with you? Until you can provide evidence and come to a consensus, all you provide are the immoral, miscellaneous ramblings of a lunatic that considers infinite torture for finite thought crime to be some sort of justice. That's just disgusting, pathetic, and weird.
