    Well that's my point isn't it? If you allow one you allow all... or are you claiming Strevelli is considered a "Wiccan Group".
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Perhaps if the Wiccan groups want to have a give away, they can hand out booklets on Wicca.... It's not like they're sending Jr. home with a 5 cc syringe of high quality vein candy.
    Well, if his mother had sent him to a Christian church and he came home with a Bible, there wouldn't be a problem. But, from the story, the public school did this. Big problem.

    This shouldn't be minimized.

    Re: Pagan mom challenges Bible giveaway at North Carolina school

    If I still had kids at home and my kid had a bible shoved in his hands, I would be VERY upset. How dare they push their religious propaganda on my child? He is a MINOR. He is in school to learn how to spell, count, read, understand science, etc etc etc. He is not there to learn some other scmucks religion. That is MY department. And HIS to seek out that which tickles his own ear. It not the school's responsibility to teach religion. Period.

    That's kind of the point. That it isn't. Yet something which clearly violates the separation of state and church is. If the communist manifesto, a book that can be used for education purposes, was handed out, we'd never hear the end of "liberal endoctrination". Yet you, a Christian, seem to downplay the handing out of Bibles and violation of C/S because it's not drugs.

    Maybe someone should get a bunch of KKK pamphlets and tell the school to pass them out. Or better yet, Mein Camp.
    Not religious material, but hey. They said they would pass out literature from whomever donated it.

    The schools in my state need new textbooks. You wanna give them something? Give them those.

    Save your proletizing or the constitutionally-permitted yet endlessly annoying times. With ADULTS.

    Yep. I swear I'll never understand why people want to do things like this at a school. The audience is captive. Its really cowardly to take advantage of that.
