Question : For those who support prayer in our schools...?

Do you plan on adding one kind of prayer into our schools with God included in the prayer and have the prayer be said in English OR will you include all prayers of all religions? Would it be fair for Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Atheist etc children to have to go to PUBLIC school, which they are required to go to by law and listen to a prayer or a say a prayer that they do not believe in or not allow them to say a prayer from their religion? Do you plan to include all types of prayers from every religion into the classroom?

Answer : i think they should have seperate schools. for kids of each religion. and the atheists can just go to hell. theyre gonna end up there anyway.

Kick ass, Freddie Mercury could teach music with Hendrix and Cobain.

You can just feel that cristian love.

One school for each religion?

That will get expensive, especially as probably every tiny christian sect wants to have its own schools ;)

Separate schools for each religion? Well, in a way, this already happens. They are called "Churches" where each religion (and/or subset thereof) get's it's own "me time".

But since there are about 40,000 different Christian sects alone, all believing different things about the One True God(TM) not counting all the other religions, you are going to finish up with an awful lot of schools.

So you support Rwandan-style genocide? How interesting!

"Seperate but Equal"? And I thought atheists were the racist ones...

9/28/2008 10:17:07 PM


Seperate but equal, of course.

Edit: damn you, toothache! Get out of my fucking brain!

9/28/2008 10:17:26 PM


Nah, too expensive for too little gain. Why don't we just do the logical thing. Cut out the religious aspect and institute a public school system for all children. This would have the added benefit of being within the framework of The Constitution and the laws of the US.

Hey, whadyano! We have this education system in place already. Whodathunkit?

I look forward to a public school dedicated to the flying spaghetti monster and my personal School of Loki.

I agree -- we should send the religious kids to institutionalized schools where they have NO contact with their infected parents and communities -- we could CURE CHRISTIANITY!

I find this quote ironic:

"Then, as I started to follow Christ, bad things began happening. There were many times where he tried to kill me through food poisoning, accidents, falls off horses, anything that he could think of to hurt or destroy me in some way."

He makes it sound like Jeebus did this.

Also, I'm pretty sure the moral of this story is - Christ has no power. Follow Satan. That's what he's trying to tell us, right?

"i think they should have seperate schools. for kids of each religion."

Seperate but equal. Because that worked so well the last time.

Children don't have religion. Their parents do. Separating out the children fosters "us vs them" mentality which leads to prejudice and violence. Also, forcing one group to remain uneducated leads to societal problems that tax payers get smacked with.

BTW separate schools... isn't that what home schooling is?

9/28/2008 10:40:01 PM


seems like the fundies (not the Christians who actually think for themselves) are the only people concerned with prayer in school.

Concentration camps for Jesus! :D

Threehorns never play with longnecks!

Disturbingly close to the "logic" of this fundie.

9/28/2008 11:09:36 PM


That would be a major waste of tax payer money.

9/28/2008 11:10:24 PM


People really should know better than to go to Yahoo Answers with these questions.

9/28/2008 11:15:17 PM


You CAN have your own fucking schools, and you do. They're called private/parochial schools and you're (sadly) free to send your kids to any of them for whatever flavor of dogmatic brainwashing you prefer.

Old Viking

Won't that make faculty recruitment difficult?

9/28/2008 11:42:21 PM


On this point I actually agree with the Chinese.
Leave religion out of the curriculum until the children are at least 18 years of age.
After that, good luck converting them.

Mrs. Antichrist

Segregation didn't work any of the times it was used throughout history -- what makes you think it's going to work now?

Oh, and an all-atheist school would probably have the highest scoring students in the country. If one ever opens up, I'd send my future children there.

They do. They're called churches. If we should have separate schools, should we also have separate hardware stores and Dairy Queens?

Reverend Jeremiah

So you are going to deny my boy an education?

9/29/2008 12:54:00 AM


[i think they should have seperate schools.]

They thought the same way in the 40's and 50's and it didnt work.

[and the atheists can just go to hell. ]

It's your made up god and your imaginary hell, YOU burn in it.
