Dear Concerned Student:
Sorry,

I am not allowed in schools.

Sincerely,

God

----------------------------------------------------------

How did this get started?...

-----------------

Let's see,
I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare complained
She didn't want any prayer in our schools.

And we said, OK.

------------------

Then, someone said you better not:
Read the Bible in school;
the Bible that says
"thou shalt not kill,
Thou shalt not steal,
And love your neighbors as yourself,"

And we said, OK...

-----------------

Dr. Benjamin Spock said
We shouldn't spank our children
When they misbehaved
Because their little personalities
Would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem.

And we said,
An expert should know what he's talking about
So we won't spank them anymore..

------------------

Then someone said
Teachers and principals better not
Discipline our children when they misbehave.
And the school administrators said
No faculty member in this school
Better touch a student when they misbehave
Because we don't want any bad publicity,
And we surely don't want to be sued.

And we accepted their reasoning...

------------------

Then someone said,
let's let our daughters have abortions if they want,
And they won't even have to tell their parents.

And we said, that's a grand idea.

------------------

Then some wise school board member said,
Since boys will be boys
And they're going to do it anyway,
let's give our sons all the condoms they want,
So they can have all the fun they desire,
And we won't have to tell their parents they got them at school.

And we said, that's another great idea...

------------------

Then some of our top elected officials said
It doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs.

And we said,
It doesn't matter what anybody,including the President,
Does in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good....

------------------

And someone else took that appreciation a step further
And published pictures of nude children
And then stepped further still by
Making them available on the Internet.

And we said, everyone's entitled to free speech....

------------------

And the entertainment industry said,
let's make TV shows and movies that promote
Profanity, violence and illicit sex...
And let's record music that encourages
Rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes...

And we said,
it's just entertainment
And it has no adverse effect
And nobody takes it seriously anyway,
So go right ahead.

------------------

Now we're asking ourselves
Why our children have no conscience,
Why they don't know right from wrong,
And why it doesn't bother them to
Kill strangers, classmates or even themselves.

------------------

Undoubtedly,
If we thought about it long and hard enough,
We could figure it out.
I'm sure it has a great deal to do with...

"WE REAP WHAT WE SOW"

------------------

Pass it on
If you think it has merit!
If not then just discard it...
But if you discard this thought process,
Then don't you dare sit back and complain about
What bad shape this country is in!!


Why is it our children can not read a Bible in school, but can in Prison.

Even if you are a none beliver it can make you think on how we as adults are raising children.

school shootings don't occur because organized religion is not promoted in schools...are you serious? yeah, maybe if religion was allowed in that amish school, that crazy dude wouldn't have went in there and started shooting. oh wait, there was religion in that school, and wait, that guy was just crazy. People can go crazy over religion too, you know, think that they are doing "god's work" by going up on the clock tower and picking off the so called "sinners".

rant over.

I didn't read all of the above, but I agree that religion should NOT be in the schools.

Religion, responsability and morals fall on the parents shoulders... The schools responsability is to provide grounds for education.

I'm a smart guy (got a great education), but I am not a very religous person. I don't kill people because my parents aren't retarded and taught me rsponsability and morals (without religion)

wether you believe or not you have to agree that religion teaches us good morals. and we CERTAINLY could use some people that make moral decisions in this country now-a-days.

I have always found it interesting that many laws are based around the 10 Commandments in some form or another....along with morals & ethics.

IMO religion does not teach good morals, in fact the opposite, it teaches that no matter what you do as long as you tell the invisible man in the sky that you're sorry it's fine. No I'm not religious, could you guess, but I still have a 2 year old that has manners and is learning right from wrong and respect.

WOW!!! you must have pulled off a miracle, raising a child with good morals, repect, etc without using religion...

saying religion would reduce school shootings are rediculous.

If anything, religion in school would just increase the child molestation cases :dunie:

no thats not rite. its teaching u that u can be forgiven for stupid stuff that you do. its not saying that its all rite in Gods eyes and every one else's eyes. Chritianity for the most part is trying to get people to do rite not wrong stuff. but there are the people out there that like to try to twist it for there benefit.

Saying religion in school will reduce school violence is like saying D.A.R.E. programs reduce drug use, or sex ed increases teen abstinance (sp?)

I am disapointed that the Teachers can not correct a child. And the Children Know it. Some parents do not care, others say oh no not my child. and then you have some getting away with things and others not and the Teachers hands are tied in how to correct them.

Mental abuse by a teacher?? NO Stand them in a corner in not Abuse. It is you did something wrong now you will stand in the corner , but that will cause mental abuse..... WTF?? Yea thats the Point. to correct a child you have to do some kind of act.

I guess someone didn't really read the whole post befor responding. Religion was only one point. There was a whole sequence of events that are listed and it seems to me these are all things that have happened.

Then tell school systems to stop allowing ragheads to go skip class and pray in the gym.
