it should be taken into account that this is in Alabama - a state that has educationally been in the lowest ten nationwide for nearly a century...

 

It's doubtful that over 5% understand that the First Amendment has erected a Wall of Separation between Church and State - and whether they even know of the SCOTUS Lemon Decision - and the Lemon Test...

 

Bless their little hearts...

(on the other hand, as I type this, the curmugeon in me goes "so, we're going to use public cash for all this stuff?" well, perhaps it would be private cash, using public facilities...they are "public" after all?)

 

Where I would really draw the line is if I had to pray when I got on the public bus, etc. Nope.


Aw heck, I pray on public buses all the time! Most of those drivers are crazy! Lol.

There are private schools for all that nonsense.

RELIGIOUS RITUAL ON PUBLIC SCHOOL PROPERTY

Message 5 of 5

FROM FOX NEWS: "The Freedom From Religion Foundation complained high school football coaches in Chatom, Ala. were doing "illegal" activities last month when they oversaw 18 football players get baptized near the field."

 

Let's be fair. Why not expand the pro church-and-state agenda to include the ciccumcision of 18 Jewish or 18 Muslim students. How far afield is that?
