    Now...you're not only trying to drag religion into school...but you need to use a thread to talk about your comparing religion with ObamaCare...and throw in representative government.

    Your post is a prime example why so many kids brains are in a mess.

    Back to my post. How about a drift away from your uncontrollable need to throw in some intellectual dishonesty...and go back to what I posted?

    Do I need to repost it for you?

    Is that ever enough time in the day for kids to take a break from god and become educated enough so that they can hopefully become gainfully employed and provide for themselves...and possibly a family one day.

    Then on Sundays or whatever day is the church day...kids will grow to be smart enough to read the hymn books, listen to sermons and decide as to whether or not what they are hearing is bull**** or not. Oh, while they are there. Might as well pray for a job on earth when they get out of school and not owe their soul to the company store. Last I heard god has been laying off...not hiring. An atheist let me in on that.

    If all you're going to do is keep repeating the same old tired nonsense, there's no point in talking to you. Come back when you rent a clue.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    School shouldn't have classes on religions. School should have time for students to worship without gov't interference. There's a big difference. If schools determine to have classes on relgion, they should have classes on all religions.

    Like to build straw men much?

    Then I invite government to use my tax dollar TO intervene in religion in every possible way starting with removing their tax exempt status by putting their presence, taking up time much better spent on teaching children the skills they need here on good ole planet earth...in a school system... paid by taxpayers.

    Pray before school...or after school BUT NOT ON THE TAXPAYER'S MONEY...PERIOD!

    And they do. Many schools have prayers around the flag pole in the morning, students are free to pray at lunch and on breaks and after school. Students can start their own prayer club that meets on campus after school hours. And, of course, anyone can pray to themselves any time they want.

    You're the only one around here flogging a straw man.

    Yet another example of Atheists' ideology that includes the attempted elimination of religion from gov't even though not the intention of the Founding Fathers in the Constitution.

    Really, lately? An atheist sees, for example, the prayers around the flag pole and doesn't initiate a law suit?

    EDIT: activity of praying around the flag pole would be wrong if all were forced to pray around the flag pole.... even those who didn't believe in the religion or ideology of record during the prayer.

    Another religious savant interpreter of the intentions of the Founding Fathers.

    I think we'd better call it a day as I see our exchanges not going to end well.
