    It's about individuals AND their communities having the right to free speech, that your Neo-Com friends in the courts took away.

    For course local schools and courthouses and state captials had the right to pray and to have religious displays for over a hundred years before these rights were stripped away.

    If a boss or business owner wants to preach Jesus or Buddah or Mohammad---let them. A worker can go elsewhere, and the public can boycott their products or services.

    This kind of freedom folks such as you can never accept or tolerate.
    Heh, heh...."Neo-Com".... I get it....
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    IOW, you're opposed to criminal behavior when the President (or someone else you don't like) does it but you're OK with criminal behavior when you don't dislike the criminal

    And that refutes what I said....how?

    Our kids have a choice. One likes private Christian school, and the other like public. Many people choose to homeschool or have small community schools among their friends. I just hate that 1/2 my property taxes go to schools I don't have full use of---but I deal with it.

    Too bad. An educated populace benefits society, it isn't all about you, it's about the betterment of society overall, from which you personally benefit.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Keeping the Feds out of public education would be the greatest benefit.

    This would require each community themselves to fund and run and be accountable for their children's schooling.

    And how is that? Please explain how letting people teach whatever the hell they want to teach is a benefit to society as a whole? You don't want to spend money paying for schools you don't use, apparently you have no problem spending money for social services for people who never got any useful education at all or learned any worthwhile job skills.

    What is the problem with "letting people teach whatever the hell they want to teach"?

    A good portion of my taxes pay for roads that I never drive on. So it goes.
