    yes, I missed that. The case cited involved access to newsletters, etc.

    I did see a case where bibles were forbidden from being distributed in schools.

    Depending on how they were distributed, I might agree.

    I don't see the problem here. Kids should be educated on all different parts of society and culture. Whether people like it or not, Christianity is a large part of our culture, and culture around the world. Part of tolerance is understanding. Whether it be Christianity, Judaism, Muslim, ect., the schools should be helping kids to stay informed. This school made the bible available. To the best of my knowledge, they did not tell these kids they have to believe it, or to not believe anything else.

    There I added something to make your post better fit what happened here.

    I have met "modern" Christians. for the most part they look and act like they just had a broom handle shoved up their ass. I bought a house from one several years ago, apparently the guy never served in the military, was on disability due to weighing 450 lbs. used his welfare check to buy more twinkies and spent the rest of his time holding Bible study and praying to Jesus. sure enough jesus crap along with all that Christian paraphanalia.

    Kinda sucks to have someone make fun of your chosen faith...Don't it.

    Please read the thread first.
    I read the first couple pages, and the most recent couple pages. I didn't feel like reading 29 pages to give my opinion.

    Then maybe you shouldn't give your opinion, because nobody feels like explaining 29 pages of a thread to you when you could just go read it yourself.

    Or you could just ignore it. God knows I've ignored most of your posts in this thread since you've gone anti-bible bonkers.

    Who are you to tell someone they can't give an opinion. High and mighty on yourself aren't you?

    Well.......your reply was concerning what the school should teach. The original story doesn't really deal with that. Most while not all do not seem to have a problem with a specific class on religion as long as it's simply a class on religion.

    I'm not even of the belief that schools should "teach religion" as long as kid are not forced to accept it.
