    "Could be"? Sure. Is? Not so much.

    An 18 year old 95% are mental children that may have legal rights but they are not (rightfully so) respected for their opinion. They generally dont know ****.
    You don't know **** either and few here respect your opinion, but I still believe in your right to comment about whatever you damn well please.

    Also..... understand they are NOT customers there. They are students that have a PRIVILEGE to go there. It is a privilege. They have the right to learn or to get the heck out. Period.
    Education is a business, not a privilege. If I pay somebody 20,000 dollars a year, I damn well have right to speak out about how that money is spent.

    Why not?

    You don't find the idea of a government employee leading your children in oaths involving religion uncomfortable?

    Qureshi, a Muslim student at the school, is leading the campaign to remove the words. The Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the matter during a meeting next month.


    Another perfect example of liberalism trying to control private organizations on what they can and cannot do.

    What part of Trinity do these students not get?

    I think the school should tell the students to go **** themselves. Any logical thinking person would say that if these dumbasses did not want 'Our Lord" on their diplomas then they should not have went to a christian school or a somewhat christian rooted school. What next students going to a hardcore Muslim university and bitching how the women have to hear burkas? Or maybe students at a Jewish school can bitch that they do not have Barbecue pork ribs at any of the dining facilities on the school campus.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Not really. The "god" reference is pretty generic and not the emphasis of the pledge.

    Yes, so now "god" has no real meaning. I guess that's what happens when you let government run it. I give up.

    I know, but it's the state of things now.

    It's actually the argument some have used to justify things like "In God We Trust" on coins. Oh, god doesn't really mean anything. It's just an empty slogan. It's not religious.

    I personally don't care if God, Zeus, Allah, or Kthulu are listed on diplomas, currency, or billboards. It seems important to you religious types, so have at it.

    If you're asking why this thread is 3 pages long, since I'm so obviously right and there is no other point, and anything else is rationalizing stupidity, I'm with you.

    If you think it's stupid for these students to want the representation of their education to not contradict their beliefs, then you need to realize that they are not the stupid ones.

    They're asking. Not suing, not threatening. They're asking.

    That's what adults do.
    Oh yeah, that makes alot of sense. They should have thought about that before choosing their school then. It's not up for the school to change their beliefs. The students should look into the school they want to go to before entering into it. They obviously had no problems for 4 years. Then they are gonna complain about 2 words on their diploma? Seriously?

    Again, who rationalizes this stuff?
