    What about Irish history month? The Irish people had to deal with being slaves, too!

    Leads me to believe that Carter was largely right in his assessment.
    There were many that complained when Bush did some of his crap. I was becoming quite sick of Bush. Carter is very wrong.

    No, that's why I specifically added "legally." A parent cannot make a child worship anything. Go through the motions, sure, but a parent can't make the child believe it. Anyone who grew up attending religious services knows that.

    I call bull____. If the local schools in my area had been singing songs praising W., the people who have no problems with Obama being lauded in song and verse would have been lynching local principals. Let's not be hypocrites.

    This sort of politicizing and indoctrination simply doesn't belong in schools, no matter what hue or flavor the president is.

    My parents took me to church 3 times a week, and I still ended up an atheist-lite.

    You wrote "no one's legally forced to go to one." Which is wrong, because there are legal mechanisms that can enforce guardians' orders.

    I knew exactly what you meant (and that you'd make a point of it), but until those mechanisms are actually employed, there's no legal force.
