    And you can't prove that it isn't. Google it. Read the articles. They ALL say the same thing. Are they all just guessing? I doubt it.

    Um... you are aware that many sources take their information from a common source, right? Just because the original source says something doesn't make it so and it just gets repeated over and over and over.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Oh? So what's your explanation for that? That they are mistaken? That swearing is school IS not against the rules or that there are NO rules about using profanity in school? Is this your argument?

    I don't know how many times I have to say I don't know, that's why I asked the question in the first place.

    Hurry ... hurry ... hurry ... Step right up folks ... be the first on your block to own a deck of race cards. Yes, folks, race cards. They are great for everyday use. Use them on your friends ... they will love them. Use them on your enemies ... they will hate them. Fun for the whole family. And for a short time only ... we'll double your order. Hurry ... hurry ... hurry ... while supplies last. Item not offered in stores.

    No worries. I am quite sure she will - in the end - get her diploma, the official who tried to deny it to her will get reprimanded and this girl gets her 15 minutes of relative fame.

    I agree that this is the tragically likely outcome.

    Of course she'll get her diploma. I think she should get her diploma. I think both parties got a little carried away, but the school is not in the wrong for asking for an apology letter IMO. That is relatively mild.
