Wow...so the squeaky wheels gets the oil, then wants more, huh? Who knew? They fuss because of the things people say in schools, now they are fussing about what they dont say in schools. The good thing is that they Lord hears your prayers whether you speak them out loud or not. I would LOVE to see the ACLU tell me that I cant bow my head, close my eyes, and silently say anything! I am tired of people and legal groups telling me what offends them...well what if not being able to say what I want offends ME!?
and on that note... GOD BLESS EvErYoNe and Merry Christmas!:)

This is just what the ACLU wants you to do and will defend your right to do it. Anyone may "bow their heads, close their eyes and silently say anything" INDIVIDUALLY!
I personally disagree wih this position. I think a "Moment of Silence" is fine and the ACLU is being nitpicky. I just want to clarify their position.

I also think they are being a bit nitpicky with this, although I can see how the "moment of silence" can be misuse by some people.

At any rate, I always felt that making kids stand up every morning and recite some kind of loyalty oath t the government was creepy and authoritarian, the kind of thing you would expect from the Hitler Youth or see in North Korea.

And yet conservatives want it. Small government LOL.
