Hi.

 

DeepFat here.  It's time we had a little chat.

 

First, let's get Mr. Green out of the way.  He has a point.  You know it.  Governmental agencies like high schools have no business in religion.  This should be obvious from 5th grade civics.  An 11  year old child can grasp this.

 

Second, it's time we had an adult chat about the legitimacy and truthfulness of religion.  Your religion, another religion, all religions.  Let's face it, if they had any legitimacy, they would not be religions.  They would be science.  At least philosophy.  Religion is the insanity we allow each other, and in the process we allow respect for our mutual insanity.   This keeps us from having to examine the truth claims of our accepted insanity.  There might be some psychological necessity for this, but I can assure you it's not universal.

 

There are those among you who have examined the truth claims of religion and found them wanting.  Badly wanting.  Let's all grow up here, and admit that Adam and Eve, the Flood, Jonah and the fish, Tower of Babel, and Jesus as the one and only Son of God is entirely fictional.  Can you admit that the fairy tales of ancient sheepherders is a suspicious basis for a philosophy of reality?

 

If you want to accept concepts such as Original Sin on an allegorical basis, we can talk, but you have much to demonstrate.  If you want to posit that the Bible is literally correct in every detail, then you must demonstrate that your position is not insane.   You know why.  Ask me if you don't, I'll respond with little words.

 

I'm all ears.  The recent religious friction in the Shoals has been both unpleasant and necessary, not to exclude other qualities.  Jeremy Green was right.  Do you disagree?  Tell me why, but be careful, I have the Constitution and reason on my side.

 

There is a reason why Jeremy Green called out the LCBOE.  It was wrong.  Jeremy was right.  I think things worked out rather friendly.  No lawsuits filed, everyone walks away as friends, justice and political philosophy is served.  The Constitution remains in effect.

 

So, all my new friends from BLWP.  Hit me.  Give me your best shot, but please keep it intellectual and civil.  I'll admit I have much to learn.  Can you?

 

DF

Make time for great justice.  Expect us.

DF, no one wants to change your mind. As far as I know everyone is comfortable with you being exactly where you are in your beliefs. You might tell us where in the constitution prayer at school is prohibited since you have it handy there.

Prayer in schools is NOT prohibited. As long as there are math test, prayer will be in schools.

What is prohibited is a person of authority conducting a public prayer to Hare Krishna,Muhammad, Buddah, or any other diety.

Think for a minute, do you really want your kids in school to be led in prayer chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama

Rama Rama Hare Hare 

Maybe you would prefer your kid to be subjected to facing Mecca 5 times a day for prayer on theiir prayer rugs.

NO the smart thing to do is keep authority led prayer out of schools.

Seeweed, it’s not about what I like but where does the constitution prohibit prayer in school. Answer: nowhere. Does the Constitution prohibit making a law prohibiting prayer any where. Yes.

Myself for instance have a hang-up about mail delivery to atheists. If I could somehow one day find my self in the presence of a Supreme Court that had upon my plea found that delivery of the US Mail to all atheists including double crosser ++ contendah is un-constitutional you are gonna be pizzaed.

Once again buffalo, tell the government to stop giving my tax dollars to the post office and they can stop my mail delivery. That will cut down on my trash too since there will be less junk mail to toss. You really need help. Do you have any family that cares about you and could get you a bit of mental help?Do you go out in public and move around among people? How do you function from day to day?
