    I completely agree. After taking both the Comparative Religion and ethic classes it changed my view of each religion, but also what I should change in my life to be a better person. I found Buddhism very peaceful and calming and it gave me inner peace. I look forward to taking more history classes with my new knowledge of these religion and hopefully I will have a better understanding of history.

    You'd actually be surprised at how close the number is.

    Even though that is if you include Libertarians as conservatives (which most people do, but not everyone).

    Don't play with logical fallacies again.

    (I looked for a poll on this and didn't find one, but I did find a study saying that liberal atheists had the highest average IQ)

    This is, I believe, a private school.

    As such, they are very certainly free to have and keep that phrase.

    His taking offense to it does not trump their freedom to express it.

    Glad to see that you agree his complaint is baseless.

    His complaint is valid, however, he isn't forcing the school to do anything. He is asking them too. And it is the schools right to refuse that request for change.

    I guess in your eyes a customer should NEVER ask a company to do something different, omg the horror.

    Hmm. Does that mean a public school would have to remove it?

    Some would argue yes.
