Let's say we keep "politics" out of it? How, then, do we teach history? Do you know that most people don't know that in our nation's short history, this is not the most divisive it has ever been? History is important. For those who are interested in learning from it.

The Teacher was reprimanded and never did this again. My daughter, along with several others, just sat in their seats. She said not one single student stood up.

Edit: What do you think the reaction would have been if she had starting leading them in an actual prayer?
I would hope she would have been fired.

It came about as a process of our evolutionary edge. Collaboration. Human's collaboration is what keeps them alive in the absence of awesome teeth and claws, camouflage or really much else that is interesting.

Holy **** this is ignorant. All of recorded human history, long before christianity even existed, there were religions and doubters.

Interestingly, so do righties. Assert things like sexual deviancy and mental illness for things that they don't like.

I think it still is, here.


Only since the .gov decided Jayzus! was the best way to fight the red menace back in the '50s.


You're a big fan of the fed gov and them knowing what's right and good for the citizenry, aren't you?

Today the jewish community is deathly afraid of America thanks to your anti religious and Jewish behavior.
Well while one should not paint religious as nazi, there can be no denying that nazi was religion. I can see why people get worried.

If someone says he doesn't want LBGT promoted in public schools or doesn't want mass immigration from everywhere, then it's just what he said, not some label leftist place on it or what some other group did one place in the 1940s or another in the 1990s.
I don't view what I do as painting. But shining a light on. There is simply no denying that the violent wave of christian motivated violence in the US is dangerous. There is also no denying that it looks an awful lot like other such movements we have seen in history, though Rwanda does not seem like it to me.

When I went to grade school, we said the Lords Prayer in public school every morning. Nobody thought anything of it, but I remember thinking it wasn’t fair to the Jewish kids, and also it clearly defined who was Catholic and who was Protestant, which was nobody business. Even as a young child I knew that public prayer in school was wrong. Of course, as long as there are tests, there will be silent prayer.

What does that "propaganda" look like to you? What I see is

- Don't judge other people for who they are.
- Don't bully other kids.

And the like. I see things like

Different families are different. This is a FACT. And it really is not, historically, all that different than the way schools allowed new inter racial family examples into their dialog and literature. This is GOOD since we know the feeling of belonging is necessary for learning. School is not the place to tell kids that one person's god is better than another person's god because the upshot of this is to cause total strife in the community.

So what do you find is objectionable indoctrination in this area? Do you feel that people are being told that they ought to be gay? Because I don't see it.
