“In GOD We Trust.”
A little boy was walking to school with his dog, but the school administration wouldn’t let him in.
As the dog sat there and whimpered, God appeared next to him. “Don’t feel bad, they won’t let ME in either.”
Why is our culture degrading? Because we are being told that prayer is wrong, that our FAITH is just conjecture, and other lies from people who have nothing else to do than take away our rights. Don’t accept what they’re doing to our beautiful country, which was founded by our Christan founding fathers.
I’m not telling you that you’re a bad person if you don’ reblog, but if you do, then just maybe we can make a difference.
I’m a good person, and I’m CERTAINLY going to reblog.
Few minor corrections here.
It seems you’ve been fed a re-constructionist history of our founding fathers. Here’s a link that gives you some quotes of what our, “Christian,” founding fathers had to say about religion and the separation of church and state. Please take the time to read the link and educate yourself. I’ll wait.
Oh, and as for prayer in the schools? I’m a little surprised that you would believe in a God so weak that he would let a human law keep him out of a school. Kids are certainly allowed to pray in school, but the school just isn’t allowed to endorse religion. Kids are allowed to pray in church, at home, on the sidewalk, in the bathtub, at the mall, in the car…in fact, your kids is allowed to pretty much pray 24 hours a day if he or she wants. No laws at all banning it.
Well, you want the preachers to lead your kids in prayer? Okay. Let’s have a nice Muslim prayer. Or maybe a Morman one? How about a Hindu prayer? No? Well, in Morman dominated Salt Lake City, that’s what your kid would pray to.
What about a Catholic prayer? Not a Catholic? Just a seven-day adventist one then.
Am I being ridiculous? Just a non-denominational prayer? I’d argue that there’s no such thing. Just let the Muslims and the Hindus and the agnostics and the atheists sit out in the hallway if they don’t like it? Nah, that doesn’t promote discrimination at all.
Please realize that NO ONE is trying to take away your rights. But we do get a little tired of your trying to push your beliefs down our throats.
Oh, and I really think “E Pluribus Unum” is much more patriotic than the 1954, “In God We Trust.” Kinda more all inclusive. Personally, I would never trust the Biblical God at all, not with that “Blessed are those who smash babies heads against walls,” stuff. That kind of thing upsets me. Fortunately, I’m an atheist, and I don’t believe a word of it.
I didn’t see any sources for the quotes you gave. I thought ‘evidence’ was your guys’ panic word.
