Ah, I see the problem, Witless. You don't understand what the word MAY means. Got it.

How likely it is makes no difference. What if there are even 10 different religions represented by the children? Again, how much time will be left for actual school work (you know, the reason the teachers and children are THERE in the first place?) when the teacher has to settle down the students who will be praying, AND those who won't, each and every time?

You never answer my other question, either. Why do you think prayers must be said out loud? Don't Christian prayers work if they're not spoken out loud where others must also listen to them?

I actually answered that question in my post to John K. He unlike you is always polite and respectful even when he doesn't agree. Take a lesson.

BTW it is a shame that they don't actually learn anything.

Her brand of Christian has to make sure their peers witness their piety or it doesn't count.

No, you really did not.

You get what you deserve from me. You haven't earned my respect, and I have no need to be polite to someone like you.

Which really has nothing to do with the subject, but by all means, let's take time from the school day to cater to religion, shall we?@@

I just think we have become a country full of offended people. I don't understand the lack of tolerance for other's religions or lack of. If you believe something strongly that isn't shared by another poster, you are an idiot, moron, stupid or worse.
Not true. You're incorrect, as usual. It's just your particular type of religious fundamentalist that are an idiots, morons, stupid, and worse.

Each child? Really? Idiot, each child MAY pray if they feel comfortable doing so already, just not out loud where others are forced to listen.
Damn, you're stupid. If the teacher had to take the 15 minutes to make "each child comfortable" with the prayer/ritual of their choice, there goes the school day.
Can't Christian kids get up early to pray at home BEFORE school? Mine did.
I've always found it interesting when some folks claim religious persecution in schools or claim that God is not allowed at school. I don't know about those folks but God is with me where ever I go as He's always in my heart. I went to Catholic grammar school and public high school. I never had a problem saying prayers at high school or saying grace before I ate lunch. Then again, I didn't pray out loud, as that's how I choose to pray, but either way, I never felt persecuted or that I wasn't allowed to worship God.

Anyways, I hope all is well with you and I hope everyone has a great day. Football starts today so I'm waiting to see how the Bears do this season. God help us, LMAO!!!:o)

The awesome thing is that this little fantasy of organized prayer in public school is ship long past sailed. These fundies really should just get over it. No one's stopping them from praying. They just love to act the martyr. They are pathetic.

It is true. It is the way you are and how you deal with opinions that you don't like. There are more constructive ways but you would never think of them.

Hey "Ink,"

Yeah, you might be somewhat surprised to learn that I completely agree with you on both counts; we're--PC/PL--already so entrenched in our positions, and so passionate about them, that neither side is willing to give so much as a micron anymore--which is the main reason why I don't bring up the subject of abortion much myself.
I also agree with your assessment of our becoming a country "full of offended people." Personally, I happen to find "militant" atheists to be as equally annoying as religious "fundamentalists."
Those folks who bring lawsuits that object to, saying the pledge of allegiance because of the "Under God," or the "In God We Trust," on our currency, or having displays of the "manger scene," or statues that have the Ten Commandments inscribed on them at courthouses...
I feel the same way about folks who're always beating their breasts about the so-called, "War on Christmas," or "Keep Christ in Christmas," or those who work themselves into a frenzy over the issue of gay marriage.
I sometimes feel like pulling my hair out and screaming, "You're getting yourselves all agitated over nothing!"

I also get what you're saying about "intolerance."
The blade cuts both ways doesn't it...?

Yep, and by doing so they belittle every Christian in the world who is facing REAL persecution. They should be ashamed, but they don't have the sense.

I couldn't "decipher" it, because it wasn't there before.

Now that you've answered, I have to ask, then what is your complaint?

I have no problem with people with differing opinions. It is you, Ink; your opinions are complete nonsense and of no relevance or value. Try to deal with it. Don't be hurt, girl. Move on.

It is always so good to talk to you.

I fear what will happen if we ban or remove everything that someone else, who wants to, will find offensive.

Obviously on here, anyone who believes in God is offensive to some others. I hope I don't get banned.

It's not a question of offense, but of infringing on someone else's civil rights.

Mine and everyone else on here that you don't agree with.

What I did say initially was that we were able to pray in school as a group before class and now we can't. True or not true?

Rather than include in some way all the religions in a class we chose to eliminate all. To me that means some group or person was intolerant to all.

No, what you said initially was that religion had been "banned" from schools, and you were wrong.
