On prayer in school.

prayerinschool

If you really think we need school-led prayer, then consider the fact that to be legal it would require your kids to participate in prayers by any religion that wishes to be included. Imagine your kids reciting a Islamic or a Hindu prayer. How about a Wiccan spell, which is like prayer in many ways. Shinto prayers can be interesting and, if pressed, I’m sure even us Atheists could come up with something in the way of a Secular Invocation. Would you have a problem with your kids being required to participate in any of those things? If so then shut the fuck up about schools not being allowed to lead kids in your Christian prayers.

  1. That’s a point that I make repeatedly, that prayer is perfectly legal in school, it just can’t be led y school officials. This doesn’t seem to make theists happy though, they want religion, *THEIR* religion, to be pushed by the establishment. They don’t even seem happy that it isn’t possible to restrict prayer, anyone who wants to pray silently to themselves can do so at any time and the Bible is quite clear about not using prayer as a public demonstration, which is really what these religious retards want to do anyhow.

    Not only do they not understand the arguments, they don’t have a clue about their own book. Anyone surprised?

  2. I’m not surprised, Cephus. But then again, I’m glad that most Christians don’t have a clue about what their book says about slavery, and that’s fine with me.

  3. Thank you! This is one of those exhausting subjects that makes being a minority religion, a Hindu in America, difficult.

  4. I used to have this same argument with my grandfather. He would just bring up the subject out of the blue, and it would commence. He would then start in on the ACLU. No matter how I tried to explain it, he just didn’t want to hear it. You can’t make these people understand what they refuse to.

  5. “…I’m going to tell you what the facts are, and the facts are the facts, but then we know the truth. That always overcomes facts…”
