Jejudo, South Korea
Well, let's see. I'm pretty sure we all know that the holiday wasn't Christian in origin, right? We all know that the 'under God' phrase was added in the fifties, right? We all know that what we're talking about is the separation of Church and State, not the end of Christianity (and we talk about this when America is going through something along the lines of a Great Revival?), right?
But let me get this straight, John believes that when a bell rings, an angel gets wings is something that should be taught in school?
Ali thinks that other holidays for different faiths shouldn't even be mentioned?
I don't have any problems with religion in school, but you have to teach it, not insinuate that homosexuality is the result of no prayer in school.
I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before, but a teacher from my old school district was picketed and insulted because he taught the Bible as literature, not as sacred text. What seems to happen, and I don't really understand why, is that differences are always sharpened to the point where you have Christians denying Christianity to different Christians.
But let's at least get out of the silliness that ACLU wants to ban Christianity (Unless you've discovered some document called the Secret Protocols of the Order of Liberalism?). There is nothing in the writings of that organization that would lead to that conclusion unless you believe that religious freedom and pluralism are best served under a theocratic state.
Now, if somebody here would be willing to say that, that would be interesting.
