Bible study rules for public schools proposed

Muslim prayer is mandated by their dogma in the Koran at certain times, thus if no accomadations were given by the office, then it would be infringing upon religious observance. No dogma in the bible requires you have a "picture " of anyone, or even symbols. In fact, the bible forbids such graven images.  (1 hr ago | post #150244)

Thanks for confirming the accusation made. Clearly IQ is not a great indicator of overall intelligence. Can I remind you once again, even the inventor of the IQ test now says it is not a good indicator..... Can you learn nothing?  (18 hrs ago | post #150228)

Yes, put burka's on those girls and force them to pledge to god and country like a good Islamic terrorist.  (18 hrs ago | post #150224)

How can we teach that America was based upon Christian values, when Christians cannot name those values? I realize it is your kinds mantra, so I would expect a list, yet it never comes.  (19 hrs ago | post #150222)

Our moron(sistanoneya) is the religous right. Why on earth would he tell his team logical, rational concepts? His sole mission here is clearly to protect the religious right at all costs. The tide comes in and goes out. He doesn't know why, and if he does, he is not going to tell his dumb teammates.  (19 hrs ago | post #150221)

Slavery was also ended by folks like us. The founding fathers put together the foundation formula that lead to all this today. So sad you hate America like that.  (19 hrs ago | post #150220)

My creator is nature. The constitution protects my rights, not nature, nor your god. I served my county to help protect those rights for all Americans. Pretty sure nature did not help, nor did your god. Rights are protected humans. Humans are protecting me from religion at this very moment.  (19 hrs ago | post #150219)

Yep, and I don't have the right to mandate religious symbols be put on government property. You see, the constitution restricts Government from endorsing religion. Is this concept really beyond your grasp?  (20 hrs ago | post #150216)

Of course he cannot as we can clearly see, he thinks in only terms of the religious right. In other words, he doesn't think much.  (20 hrs ago | post #150215)

Jesus was killed long before "pictures " were invented. Why do you hate secular America?  (20 hrs ago | post #150214)

No, it is evidence America is not founded upon Christian principles. I support the constitution which protects religion and me from religion. I realize you don't think it protects me from religion. How dumb is that concept? Guess it work for religious extremists in theocratic middle eastern countries. Secularism is the best. Why do you hate american ways?  (20 hrs ago | post #150213)

The ten commandments are being removed from court houses. You do not have to swear on a bible anymore. Now please tell me a specific Christian value you feel America was founded upon? I keep hearing the mantra, but no one can back it up.  (Friday | post #150178)

The Christian right wing does not have the platform of turning the other cheek. In fact it is the complete opposite. They are the party of an eye for an eye.  (Sunday Aug 23 | post #150080)
