    People still think like this?

    Now I sit me down in school

    Where praying is against the rule

    For this great nation under God

    Finds mention of Him very odd.



    If Scripture now the class recites,

    It violates the Bill of Rights.

    And anytime my head I bow

    Becomes a Federal matter now.



    Our hair can be purple, orange or green,

    That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.

    The law is specific, the law is precise.

    Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.



    For praying in a public hall

    Might offend someone with no faith at all.

    In silence alone we must meditate,

    God's name is prohibited by the state.


    We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,

    And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.

    They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.

    To quote the Good Book makes me liable.




    We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,

    And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.

    It's "inappropriate" to teach right from wrong,

    We're taught that such "judgments" do not belong.



    We can get our condoms and birth controls,

    Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.

    But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,

    No word of God must reach this crowd. !



    It's scary here I must confess,

    When chaos reigns the school's a mess.

    So, Lord, this silent plea I make:

    Should I be shot; My soul please take!

    Amen


    Whence comes this logic: no evidence = false?

    Yeah I had this forwarded to me a month or two ago, it found my delete folder quickly. What a load of garbage.
    No one gives a crap if you pray, praise Jesus, talk about God, and read Scripture. Do it in school if you want, no one is going to send a kid home for reading the Bible on his lunch break. But let's not pretend like school enforced prayer and personal prayer are the same thing. If separation of chuch and state falls apart then I am getting the hell out of here.

    You haven'z been to the Midwest or Northeast of the US lately??

    Over there those come a dime a dozen.

    Or why do you think G. Dubbja B. was RE-elected.

    I think the South is far worse than the midwest or northeast. It's been my experience that the fundies in the south are much more intolerant than the religiousites in the midwest at least.

    Remeber reading this long ago. Maybe it fits in here. So as long as our poetic licence hasn't been revoked....

    Poems are made by fools like me
    But only God can make a tree
    And only fools like me, you see
    Can make a God who makes a tree
    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    In the UK church and state are not separate.
    In the UK the Queen is not only the head of state, she is head of the established church.
    In UK state schools daily prayers (and often services) are held.

    Now contrast the number of atheists/agnostics in the UK with the US.
    Contrast the number of creationists and those opposed to evolution in the two countries.

    Separation of church and state is almost incidental to the issue.

    Wait, all that sh*t is still in the UK?

    I mean, I would expect that stuff from Jamaica, but the UK???

    Well this is the U.S., not the U.K. I think the effects would be much more pronouced if Christianity found its way into our government and our schools.
