Onward Christian Teachers, Marching on to School
This morning I read Jason’s post on The Wild Hunt entitled Religious Minorities and Christian-Dominated Schools about a boy who was harassed for being a Buddhist at a PUBLIC SCHOOL which is funded by all us taxpayers. The quotes from the teachers and board and what teaching materials he was given and most importantly the very vitriolic things the teachers actually said to him like “maybe you should go to a school with more Asians (idol worship pagans who are going to Hell anyway) was absolutely SHOCKING to me.TWH just posted this yesterday and with mine at last count there were 103 comments already worth reading through too.
Now i know in the South things are a little different, less lawyers and such, but thank god for the ACLU who took u this case. I used to belong to the ACLU but with my dwindling funds left it drop. I need to start giving a little to them and Doctors Without Borders again, the two causes i have always supported.
I have a friend who lives on the Florida panhandle next to Louisiana and if he puts out Halloween decorations that are anything more than the standard autumn decorations of hay bales and pumpkins that ladies from the churches knock on his door and tell him how Halloween is worshiping Satan, god’s truth.
I can’t remember the exact Jesuit quote nor by whom in particular but it goes something like “Give me a child at age 5 and i will make him a Christian for life”.
There has Got to be a Separation of Church and State in this country like it dictates in our USA Constitution !!!
