Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

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.
innocent children need not be subjected to such filth

pray on your own time, on your own property, pray in silence, do not attempt to indoctrinate children.

in short

keep your filth to yourself

If she chose sex and chose to be irresponsible about it, yes.
But she wasn't "forced" into becoming a mom, she CHOSE to risk it and therefore CHOSE it.
<quoted text>
Absolutely! She shouldn't be having sex in the first place.
<quoted text>
Hell no. That's why he shouldn't be having sex and risking knocking a girl up.
<quoted text>
What?! Hell no. That boy and that girl made their choices. They need to man-up about it, get jobs and take care of their "accident". The grandparents didn't force them to try sex, the grandparents aren't financially responsible.
<quoted text>
Huh? They wouldn't become parents again, their kid's would be.
<quoted text>
I agree. If they're gonna do it, they're gonna do it.
It's their choice if they choose to be responsible about it.
Ever stop to think that actions and choices have consequences? Ever consider that a 13 year old having sex is illegal and immoral?
a childish ignorant attitude from someone who seeks control

you are a sad, vile person, no misfortune you might experience would be worth of empathy.

you are among the most vile persons I have ever met, you are indeed a christian.

Good luck with your plans. I think the difference between the UK and the US is that "the powers that be" recognised that public opposition to same sex marriage had evaporated and just got on with the job of making things equal ASAP. We were able to pull forward the effective date by 3 months because the other side just stopped fighting it.

No, not like all of us did.
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.

given the treatment from his father, he is unlikely to tell the truth about any of his encounters.

Most likely a Liar, just like good ole dad

but --- if it is true that he is 18 and still "a virgin" then the probability is that he has a sexual identity issue.

Thanks for pulling me up on this one. My Cork friend attended a friend's civil union but she told me they couldn't get the church's nose out of "full marriage". Curtailing church powers is well overdue because their laws are killing women.

Meanwhile, up North, this girl (who was anti abortion) was obliged to carry a dead foetus to term.

With regards to the constitution, I'm no expert. The way the story played over here is that the blasphemy law was updated and therefore reinforced in 2009, by which I mean there are many countries with ancient but ignored blasphemy laws. There's a proposal to move from blasphemy to incitement to cause religious hatred model? That's what we've got. I understand the motivation, but it's open to interpretation.

<quoted text>Erm, the Republic has recognized same-sex civil unions since 2010.
"Civil partnerships in Ireland, granted under the Civil Partnership and Certain Rights and Obligations of Cohabitants Act 2010, give same-sex couples rights and responsibilities similar, but not equal to, those of civil marriage. Recently, there has been growing discussion on the legal recognition of same-sex marriage. This would require an amendment to the Irish Constitution, which is planned to be held in 2015 and which is supported by about 75% of the Irish people according to polls." - Wiki.
Did you catch the Constitutional change for next year (it's a shoo-in)?
And the 75% support?

Oh yes. I posted to haram salami that we are coming the get the child butchers.
They need to change the NHS rules of engagement. If you see someone with a bullet in them, you're obliged to inform the police. If you see a butchered child, the same should apply.

It's happening here too but money makes fast friends. The Christians still have a slim lead in some states.

Not EVERY religion.

You can see why the Ancient Greeks were so accepting, when even their head god did it.
The ancient Greeks normalized pedophilia as did the Romans. Prepubescent boys were passive sex toys for adult males, that is until they started to mature with body hair. Ganymede was raped by Zeus according to your wiki site. Excerpt below.

When painter-architect Baldassare Peruzzi included a panel of The Rape of Ganymede in a ceiling at the Villa Farnesina, Rome,(ca 1509-1514), Ganymede's long blond hair and girlish pose make him identifiable at first glance, though he grasps the eagle's wing without resistance. In Antonio Allegri Correggio's Ganymede Abducted by the Eagle (Vienna) Ganymede's grasp is more intimate. Rubens' version portrays a young man. But when Rembrandt painted the Rape of Ganymede for a Dutch Calvinist patron in 1635, a dark eagle carries aloft a plump cherubic baby (Paintings Gallery, Dresden) who is bawling and urinating in fright

The ancient Greeks were gross sexual barbarians.

You misunderstood. Constitutional law as interpreted by the Supreme Court forbids school officials from promoting religion or leading prayers, but it also protects the rights of students to practice their faiths during school hours as long as it doesn't interfere with school activities or impinge on the rights of other students. Disruptive behavior is governed by school policy, the religious rights of the students by constitutional law. Which one applies depends on the situation.
The conversation, then, involves both constitutional law and school policy. There's no "switch," only a view that encompasses both and applies each where appropriate.
"as interpreted by the Supreme Court"

Are you aware of a way to interpret the phrase "Congress shall make no law" to mean "teacher may not lead a prayer"?

We have little recourse against activist courts who subvert the Constitution, violate their oaths, and betray their country.

What pisses me off is the sheepish way people tolerate it. Atheists are fine with the treason of the present subject on church and state. They won't be so chipper if a conservative majority manages to commit the same corruption.

But that's not likely. Liberalism is winning the day, and picking up speed, as they tumble us toward destruction.
