    Stupid whining about children is a bipartisan thing, but each side handles it differently.

    Liberals bitch that the media is "too violent", and that it needs to be toned down for our precious li'l youngsters

    Conservatives and libertarians bitch that that children aren't moral enough, because of the evil liberal media, and that they need to wear sexless clothes, never discover what sex is and most importantly NEVER swear ever ever ever ever ever ever ever.

    When children suffer for the latter, well, at least they're going to Heaven!

    EDIT on further reading this may not even be a policy. Guy, you're a smart dude, so if your statement on the rules is false you knew it when you said it (unless the article had vague language which is hard to understand, happens to me)
    I posted a link earlier in the thread that the school has a zero tolerance policy for any kind of profanity. Whether or not you consider the word "hell" to be profane is entirely subjective. I don't know how many more times I have to explain this. It doesn't matter what YOU think about people and their beliefs. Some people may have been offended (such as grandparents, etc.), and how YOU personally feel about that or them does not matter. Zero tolerance. You all know what that means, right?

    The school is being stupid.
    The school is enforcing their zero tolerance policy. The "school" actually doesn't make the rules. The elected officials to the school board do. The principal and his or her staff only enforce the rules. I am quite sure that the principal did not come to this decision alone.

    So clear this up for me because earlier, Guy was saying something to the effect that there was no published anti-profanity policy on paper. Is there? I'm asking because I honestly don't know, I'm only going by what I've seen earlier in this thread.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I posted a link earlier in the thread that states the school has a zero tolerance policy for profanity.

    I understand that, I'm asking if it's a written zero tolerance policy for profanity, or just an "understood" one. Guy claimed that *ALL* schools inherently have an anti-profanity policy whether it's written down or not.

    It's not even that she used the word hell, it's the venue in which she used it. There is a time and place for everything. What are you going to do when the next one says "b1tch?" These are things children need to learn before they enter into the adult world.

    In other words, you have no information. Gotcha.

    I already posted it earlier in the thread. You can look for it yourself.

    It was a simple yes or no question, but fine, I'll go look.
