    2nd, its not the schools problem. It's the students problem. The school doesn't have to bend to the will of a couple of butt hurt students who went to the school for 4 years and never uttered a complaint about God up until they got their diplomas.

    If a diploma offends you, then I have to say that your either A) a total loser with nothing better to do or B) someone who likes to start trouble where there is none.

    It is a Christian school. Did the non-Christians who go there think that maybe at a Christian school, there might be references to Jesus or God while attending?

    I mean is this such a far fetched notion to possibly conceive? Serously?

    I don't think you understand the meaning of the word "customer". The school offers a service which the students buy. That makes them very much customers.

    People try and change school policies all the time. It's nothing new. Usually they fail, as they almost certainly will here. There is nothing actually wrong with trying to change school policy. It's stupid and futile in this case, but there is nothing wrong with it.

    Are you sure you're not confusing the word "Liberal" with "all things I don't like or disagree with?"

    If it is raining, do you say to yourself, "I hate this "Liberal" weather? If your car has a flat, do you curse the poor quality of this "Liberal" tire? Or berate the "Liberal" who made your tire? If people disagree with you, do you tell them they are acting like a "Liberal"?

    So, you want schools to teach about Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam?

    Yes actually. Both in lit classes and history they should be taught. Comparative religion classes are not taught enough at the high school level, but it would be appropriate there as well.

    I have actually taken a few classes that teach about those religions. One was a Comparative Religion class which was really interesting and the other two were both ethic classes.

    In high school we didn't learn about them in history or anything like that, but we did have a comparative religion class. It wasn't very detailed though because it was more of a joke senior class.

    Exactly, and that is what this is all about. The objection is to the phrase "in the year of our Lord." Anytime you use A.D. in making reference to a year, you are saying the same thing. Next thing they will demand is the removal of AD from all textbooks and uses in the university. Stupid!

    Would have been hard to be born in 0 CE as there was no such year...

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.
    Exactly. I teach at a Buddhist school and I am not whining about the fact that we are not permitted to have meat on campus... These kids should get a life...
