    Exactly. They want to limit our bible study groups to our homes or our churches. How unfair is that?

    Well maybe that was your experience, but I can't remember a single time in Biology or any other science class where we discussed religion or god.
    Other than to say, "your religious beliefs are not being discussed here."

    I think the mass characterization you made, was wrong.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If it's not in every public school in the South, then it's in a large number of public schools in the South - entirely too many of them.

    The schools are for science and putting religion there would afford religion more influence than it already has. Thus the two should be separate.

    But a trade could be a very interesting idea actually. Science, stripped of religion and all that it has, being taught on a religious site. In Persia multiple religious followers translated much of what may have been lost forever to wars and thus made knowledge prevail. So it has been done before.

    Plus why is "public schools" emphasized? What, private schools have religion teachings in them then?

    Believe me, I understand that northeastern establishment Christians and born again evangelicals consider Catholicism to be apostasy (odd considering that the Catholic church was THE Christian church until all those other Protestant divisions started making up new rules, but I digress). But the Blaine Amendment appears more to be a blow against the Irish rather than Catholicism.

    I'm sorry if you hold on to the totally antiquated notion that the Papists will follow the Pope's marching orders rather than the Presidents when it comes to state law, but that gives you no right to be a bigot or pass selective laws against us.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    It was part of a conservative anti-Catholic campaign that began in the 1880s and extended into the 1920s. It included areas where there were virtually no Irish Catholics, including Wisconsin.

    'Bigotry' has a bad reputation. Catholics are happy to be bigoted against homosexuals and atheists; I'm happy to be bigoted against Catholics. As for the rest, I identify culturally with White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism (High Church, not the evangelical swill). And I would have supported them in the 1920s against the Catholics who raided the patronage jobs and supported the corrupt machines.
