    My point is about school responsibility vs. student responsibility. It has nothing to do with comparing the bible to poison.

    And my question still stands, why is the bible so reprehensable to you, yet other books (such as romance novels) and other fiction or non-fiction books ok? What is in the bible that is so horrible that you would want it banned over other books?

    Do I really have to explain this? Really?

    Unbelievable.

    Fine. Here we go.

    I was making an ANALOGY. It's when you compare two different situations to make a point. In this case, I was talking about the responsibility of schools to make decisions for children. That has absolutely nothing to do with saying the bible is like poison. Seriously, learn what an analogy is.

    Here, this may help:

    Analogy | What is the Definition of Analogy? | Dictionary.com

    analogy
    [uh-nal-uh-jee]
    noun, plural -gies.
    1. a similarity between like features of two things, on which a comparison may be based: the analogy between the heart and a pump.
    2. similarity or comparability: I see no analogy between your problem and mine.
    3. Biology . an analogous relationship.
    4. Linguistics a. the process by which words or phrases are created or re-formed according to existing patterns in the language, as when shoon was re-formed as shoes, when -ize is added to nouns like winter to form verbs, or when a child says foots for feet.
    b. a form resulting from such a process.
    5. Logic . a form of reasoning in which one thing is inferred to be similar to another thing in a certain respect, on the basis of the known similarity between the things in other respects.

    What is in the bible that is so horrible that you would want it banned over other books?
    I'm not picking on the Bible, I'm discussing it because it was the subject of the OP.

    Here, I didn't think I had to tell you this, but here it goes.

    YOU'RE ANALAGY SUCKS AND IS NOT COHERENT.
    There you go, understand it now?

    How is the school in allowing a CHOICE for students ON THEIR OWN, to pick up a bible, any different than allowing them the CHOICE to pick up a book in the library. Until you can answer that, your point is useless and doesn't make ANY SENSE.

    So does this mean you understand that it's an analogy, and what an analogy is?

    How is the school in allowing a CHOICE for students ON THEIR OWN, to pick up a bible, any different than allowing them the CHOICE to pick up a book in the library. Until you can answer that, your point is useless and doesn't make ANY SENSE.
    Again, if you just give a small child the CHOICE to pick up poison, that's still your responsibility, not the child's. You cannot absolve the school of responsibility.

    In the same way (this is the analogy thing again, being explained in detail to you), you cannot say that it's not a violation of a parent's right to control what religious beliefs a child is exposed to in a public, government-run school simply because a religious text is just sitting there and is voluntarily picked up by the child.

    The school should not be making decisions for children, that is the responsibility of the Parent. This is a fundamental misunderstanding of the liberal left.

    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.
    Then pass out the Qurans and Tanakhs along with Bibles.... And while they do that. Might has well throw in the daily Horoscope...just to make it all fair.

    Yes, and what your analogy has NOTHING to do with what is REALLY going on. Your analogy makes NO SENSE.

    Answer my question that I keep asking you. How is allowing the choice of a child to pick up a bible ANY DIFFERENT than allowing a student to pick up a book in the library? What makes the bible so reprehensable that it shouldn't be allowed as a choice for students to pick up? Why can't you answer the question?

    That's exactly what I'm saying, genius.

    You couldn't be more confused.

    In general, rigthwingers want bibles and prayer and religion in schools, and lefties want to leave that stuff to parents.

    Sigh.

    If you can't grasp it....

    LOL. Analogies are all about comparing apples to oranges.

    Answer my question that I keep asking you. How is allowing the choice of a child to pick up a bible ANY DIFFERENT than allowing a student to pick up a book in the library?
    The bible (and any other religious text) isn't just another book.

    What makes the bible so reprehensable that it shouldn't be allowed as a choice for students to pick up? Why can't you answer the question?
    The bible isn't reprehensible. Saying that makes me think you either have no friggin' idea whats' going on, or you're just being annoying. Either way, I'm not interested. Read the thread, the issues have been amply discussed, even for someone like you who displays very little knowledge of this issue and not a great deal of ability to think critically either.

    No, they are not, they are to comapre similar situations. This is not in anyway similiar to your analogy. Your fail, not mine.

    Yes, it is like any other book. It has text and words.

    I don't care if you're interested in it or not. Your analogy is pointless, unintellgent, and has nothing to do with what is really going on here. You and others like you are demonizing a book. That is what is happening. The school is allowing students to read or have the book. It is no different than offering any other book from a library.

    You remind me of the old book burners that wanted to burn all the copies of Tom Sawyer. Pathetic and sickening that you are for the censorship of a book simply because you somehow fear the contents. Disgusting.
