    I'm not talking about being offended, I never used the word "offended" at all. I said that there is a time and a place for things and school is neither the time nor the place for displays of religiousity. Besides, even the Bible says not to make a show of your religion, why do you ignore the Bible?

    What if I were offended that Barack Obama was president? Offended if mary jane was legalized? Offended in Gay Pride Parades? Could I get the last presidential election nulified 'cause I'm OFFENDED? Could I get Oregon's and Colorado's legalization of mary jane nulified 'cause I'm OFFENDED? Could I get Gay Pride Parades outlawed 'cause I'm OFFENDED? Jeze, this is America, dude. This is a representative republic. We compromise here, if you don't know....
    You don't seem to understand that everywhere isn't a democratic republic. You don't get to do things your boss doesn't want you to do at work without consequences. School is a requirement, people cannot simply walk out because they are offended. It's not even about offense, but intent. The purpose of school is to educate. If students want to talk about religion before school or after school, nobody cares. It's when they want to interfere with the educational process by spouting their irrational nonsense that people care.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    sm'.
    Not true. Also, as part of the atheist doctrine, there's a desire and attempt to remove all religious references from gov't.

    Why isn't school the t ime or place for religion?. Why does everyone at public school have to practice the athiest's ideology? Again, not what the Founding Fathers (Madison) had in mind when referring to religious freedoms.

    Where is this doctrine listed and by what authority is it produced?
    Don't work out, work in.

    Not gonna comment on this tripe. Don't think atheists actively want to remove religion from gov't? I've got a lake I want to sell you in Arizona.

    Because our government is secular. The courts have decided that. Deal with it.

    There are dozens of lakes in Arizona, or were you unaware of that, like you seem to be of just about everything?

    First hand example of the Athists' ideology to attempt to eliminate religion from gov't. Again, not what the Framers had in mind.

    There is no such thing as atheist doctrine. Why do you feel your religion needs a monopoly over our government? Can your god not represent himself?

    The framers included a separation of church and state, so you obviously have no idea what you're talking about.
