    Conservative Christians are the only religious/cultural group whom it is permissible to mock publicly. Having no religion myself, I offer that as a simple observation.

    I'm an equal opportunity mocker. Anyone with a stupid belief gets it right between the eyes. Christians. Muslims. Jews. There are no limits, nor should there be.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Your personal lack of manners does not affect the overall point.

    For true Christians, the mocking means nothing.

    Because Christians are being reeled in a bit from their over stepping the bounds of the Constitution they feel they are being "attacked"...

    Can't make this **** up.

    There's nothing wrong with calling a spade a spade. Political correctness is idiotic.

    If the others kids at school are even aware of what religion one of the other students is, the odds are that student is having some socialization problems.

    Talking about God at school is in that vast category of things that parents advise kids to do socially that is in reality utterly terrible advice in the vicious world of school. Like all the one-liner zingers that parents are just positive will put an end to bullying that actually just get the poor kid bullied worse. Kids with better social skills figure that out right away. Kids who don't figure that out end up getting ridiculed whether they're Christian or not. The specific thing that kids use to ridicule them or that prompts the ridicule isn't actually significant. It could be anything. Kids in elementary school and junior high sense a lack of socialization and prey upon it and they do not have a hard time coming up with a topic for the ridicule. If the other kids were more morally and emotionally developed, they'd feel sorry for the kid, but as they are, they ridicule them. It happens just the same to kids who are not going around school talking about their religion.

    No, one could not. Prohibiting discrimination against others is not intolerance towards people who feel like discriminating.

    Long before the term "political correctness" had ever been uttered it was considered bad manners to disparage another's religion in public.

    Actually, you just defined political correctness.
