for me, the fact that this happened in MA, home of the Liberal doesn't surprise me much and the fact that the head of local ACLU is 'thick as thieves' with the rag heads doesn't surprise me either. If this sort of thing happened with one of my kids (unlikely in Utah) somebody's fucking head would roll.....
Wow, this is all sorts of messed up. I still remember some of the parents screaming bloody murder when my 4th grade class went to the museum of church history here in SLC. Religion was virtually left out of our tour, as deep as it got was when we got to see a really old book of mormon (1830 I think) and the tour guide explained that church members moived to Utah to escape persecution. There was such a fuss about it that my class was the last one to go there from my school.
im jays complete lack of surprise.this is the way our country is being run.2 many people trying to move us towards things like this,islam,socialism.......
To me it is simple, no religion belongs in a public school. If someone wants their child's indoctrination into a religion then they should foot the bill and send them to a religious school.
Islam, Judaism, Christianity or hell Scientology, I do not care... That is what worship halls and religious schools are for.
Social Studies take field trips, but, frankly I do not feel they should be taking any field trips. Hell they can not hardly pay for Crayons and Paper let along Elmer's glue to begin with.
i agree isd.as a kid we still did the pledge till i was in 6th grade,but after that it was gone completely.i dont think that is right,but i dont want religion in schools either.
I think that is something they *should* have every morning without question. Never understood why they stopped it...
for two words - "Under God!" There is a reference to an almighty being in the pledge, so they have taken it out of our schools. I read somewhere that the words were added in the 1950's around 1953-55 because of the spread of Communism in the world. I remember saying the pledge through the 6th grade also. I think we started it in the 7th, but it was taken out around that time, and the teachers wouldn't buck the system.
something that was actually mentioned in the video. Where is the ACLU in this. We (Protestants, Catholics, Mormons, and even the Jehovah's Witnesses) can't get away with something like this. I may be wrong, but it was either Kalifornia, Chicago, or somewhere in the Northeast that the original court case that took prayer out of public school took place. And here, we have a CLEAR violation of that in the very seat of Liberal world! OH, I get it, they aren't Catholic, Protestant, Morman, or even Jehovah's Witness who really do believe in peaceful co-existence, so they can spout their form of religion. That is BS. I would be LIVID if this happened where my child attended school. After viewing this, I would definitely NOT sign a permission slip for my child to attend the field trip and would protest it's occurence until I had some (written) assurance that something like this would not happen. Even then I would probably attend as a chaperone and I would make it known that as soon as something like that happened, I would take as many of the kids out as I could, and I would file a formal protest with the school board if not my own lawsuit!
im with you randy.although im not one to say islam is all bad,im leary of them because of their ideas on women other religions...if i had children,id never alow them to go on this type of field trip unless i was present.as far as the prayer in schools goes for this,they A werent in school,B prayed willingly as part of the experiance.hard one to fight.tell you what though,makes me wana put on my infidel hat even though im home alone.haha
