Your too funny! Now look at your paragraph once again. To begin, I am not a overall religious guy but your comment was funny
So, correct me.
You state "Enroll them in a school that follows your particular religion or cult"
Agreed, so now does that mean if I or anyone else chooses this and send their kids to a Private Christian, Jewish, or Cult school then they will be free of paying massive taxation to a useless, failing, Government school?

You state " and they can say "Jesus" if they choose in any public school and are free to pray to whomever they please" So the kids who were expelled in Seattle who minded their own business and said blessing before lunch were free to do so? Or the kids who played for a Burlington County NJ High School football team who prayed before the game, which were suspended, were free to do so?

No, not in Government Schools. There you just pay out the ass in taxes and have massive percentages of kids graduate who cannot even read their diploma so they can go out and vote for more big failed government, current slobberfest today and tomorrow inclusive of comment. Rather interesting.

Hypocrisy at it's finest! Then the inauguration should be held private also, right? It's okay for the "president" to use in public, but not, for our children? Is that the "change" you've been anticipating?

Yes. I grew up with Warren which is why he led me down a difficult, false path of the liberal, social gospel.

I have to admit. I am enjoying seeing Warren squirm, proving that if you present the gospel right, the world is going to hate you.

I think it was about Rick Warren.

Rick Warren has written some fine literature that has helped a lot of people. It's not overly religious or chock-a-block full of Jesus....but it's helpful stuff. Hopefully, through this, most of the people who have read his books have used it as a springboard to dive a little deeper into the gospel. So, in light of the "some plant and some water" theory....maybe his calling is just to plant a whole lot of seeds. At the end of the day, he's planted more than most of us put together....so it is all good. I'm sure he will do a fine job without offending the masses.

I don't follow a liberal, social Gospel. I follow The Gospel.

The Lord guides me and protects me.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:4-7
