We need GOD in our schools just like we all need him in our lives. The people who don't believe that are the ones who will have to answer for that.

So, when exactly was God removed from the schools? As far as I know there has always been the separation of Church and State. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the founding fathers instituted that. Teaching morality is the responsibility of the parents, not the schools.

Your comment doesn't make a lot of sense. Gramatically, it's a mess.

Look it up yourself, the decline started when GOD was thrown out of schools it is a simple fact. And yes your right it is the responsibility of the parents but then again that was all based off the Bible

When exactly was God thrown out of the schools? Give me a date. Give me some legislation to refer to. If parents want to base their morality teaching on the Bible (not "off the Bible") that's fine. They could base it on simply treating people well and being respectful, that's fine, too. The Bible says we will be judged on how we treat the poorest among us. What would Jesus do? He would have treated the poor much better than the rich. From what I see, if you believe we will be judged, this nation is going to be judged very harshly. I don't know if we will be judged or not. No one has ever come back to tell us. I prefer to think of my version of God as kind and benevolent, not angry and vengeful. Sorry....got off topic there. Just give me a date when God was "in" the schools, and then "out".

The problem is, which version of god? There are differences in the beliefs of Catholics, Jews, the various Protestants, the various new Christian religions (Mormons, Jehovah's WItnesses, etc.) the various Muslims, Hindus, Buddists, the various Pagans, Janes, all of whom have their own set of stories, beliefs, and names for their deity or deities. Teaching comparative religion in upper grades seems like a good idea because people will have to work with and deal with people of other faiths which they might otherwise know nothing about. Teaching any one belief sends the message that others are not acceptable.

In 1964 I was in first grade and we had a daily bible study with stories of the bible detailed using paper cut out dolls on an easel, it was basically a Methodist version of events. Catholics went to their own schools, Episcopals, Lutherans, Presbyterians, and Jews were too few to matter, and there were no Muslims, Hindus, or anything New Agey. Sometime during the school year I remember the teacher angrily saying there would be no more bible study because the Supreme Court was being controlled by Jews who were servants of Satan and a "mean woman named Madallynn Murrey".

Just google it, i believe sometime in the 60's dont quote me on that its been a long time since i studyed the downfall but it does something to think about. One question, what did you think of God when all those students got shot on campus? the reason i ask was many said how could GOD allow this to happen. Hmmm didnt they throw GOD out of school

AND AS FAR AS JUDGE THIS COUNTRY OH MAN THATS A FEARFUL THING

If some "god" was so easily thrown out of school, then such a "god" must not be very much a "god" after all.

And certainly nothing to be "feared".

Just a character in a bedtime story, that is all.

We live in a world where everyone is afraid to say or do anything in fear of offending another person. You have the right to believe what you want so give me the same right to believe what I want

Burning in hell? Another bedtime story.

"Hell" is named after Hel, the daughter of Loki and the ruler of the underworld in old Norse mythology.

Many Christians don't seem to take the time to learn the origins of their quaint superstitions and folklore.
