A federal judge has ruled that a Rhode Island high school must tear down a prayer banner that encouraged students to be kind and helpful because it offended non-Christians and was a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

It's amazing how all it takes is one trivial complaint.

Yes, there can be thousands that like and approve, but it only takes one to have it taken away. Had nothing about Jesus only God and a lot of people don't worship the same one.

Thing that kills me is we cant have anything religious or religious saying around Public insitutions and Government buildings.

Yet the Supreme Court, any other Court, and Congress don't say anything about the United States Real Religion. US Currency! Wherein on every piece we have. It says.....In God We Trust!!!!!

If it was promoting Islam, you would be arrested for wanting to take it down and the hard Libs would be calling you islamphoias- sp. Then if the judge ordered it taken down the school would probably be afraid of bombs.

What gets me is how frivolous it was and they some are admiring bravery. :rollseyes:

I know and it wasn't like it was just put up either. It's been there for years. People should get out and fight this one. Soon they are going to be saying and we all know it's coming that graveyards of any kind can't have a cross just in case a atheist is offended. They have a group and I forget which state that pays people to go out and find things to dispute. Just like the recent fights in TX. Those people weren't even from there.

Oh, she took a brave stand. :laugh: :rollseyes: Honestly, if this girl came up with this on her own I would suspect she suffers from some kind of neurosis. That said no doubt you're right. I'm sure there are organizations dedicated to causing trouble.

The US Constitution has been made to say a lot of things it doesn't say. The people who do that need to be ignored. Seriously. The problem is we have activist judges that do what they "think" is right and PC. The US Constitution is not politically correct and that drives the left to make up shit to further their agenda.

You can disagree with her position, but why would you attack her personally? She obviously took an unpopular stance and received quite a bit of persecution from people much worse that you.

To me, this is just more proof that we should not have public schools, nothing more.

As I have said before, judicial activism is not just a product of the left. Example: Patriot Act.

Honestly, that neurosis comment was just a matter of fact statement. I do believe that persons objecting to Christmas music, Nativity scenes etc. are less than well. It's utterly frivolous. Granted, she's a young girl and I should cut her some slack.

I tend to agree... However, I also know how it feels to be in a minority with my beliefs and opinions and can understand how someone of a certain faith would object to having an opposing faith shoved down my throat.

Again, to me it is an easy solution. Get rid of public education. It isn't doing a good job anyways.

We certainly agree on public education and its performance. That would also solve a lot of other issues like this one. Agreed. I would only add that it usually isn't people of faith who complain about symbols of faith.

I would argue that atheism or agnosticism is a "faith" (much to the chagrin of those people) - hehe
