As I've explained to my dumbass dad before (who loves to rant about how they've "kicked God out of school")....

Prayer has been banned in school the same way taking a dump as. You can still do it, but you're expected to do it in reasonable privacy and not disrupt the people around you with it.
Also, school officials cannot officially sponsor your crap.

Oh, and for some of these people (around the country, not just in Alabama), anything short of letting the preacher from Poltergeist II determine the curriculum is going to be considered "turning our backs on God."

technicolor-misfit: Virtually any thread on facebook or a local news site or something that's about ANYTHING even tangentially-related (e.g. "truancy numbers are up," "gun found in locker," "girl wants to wear ______ to prom," "Alabama ranked 47th in education") pretty much anything negative about schools, kids, or crime, or any other kind of "this world is going to hell in a handbasket!!!" story automatically prompts people to crawl out of the woodwork and blame it on the fact that "God isn't welcome in our schools" or that "we've turned our back on God."

Are they claiming that Alabama has turned it's back on God, or that the nation has?
Because, y'know, if the nation has and Alabama hasn't, that might at least explain the Education ranking.

Cheesus: The Name: Lumpmoose: It's amazing how much damage Karl Rove caused with his 2004 Bush campaign and that it took 8 years to overcome.

Jesus. As recently as 2004, a slim majority of people thought gay sex itself should be illegal. That makes me weep for our country.

It is in North Carolina, along with oral sex. Now shut up before they put that in the state constitution also.

/my wife likes breaking that law
//newlywed, it won't last

The gay sex law, or the oral sex law?

/either way...

Hmm. Moral relativism... bad. Mythological moralism... good.

Ok, got it.

"California, for instance, has a new law mandating teaching gay history in public schools. A similar mandate to teach Christian history would be challenged constitutionally."

Gay isn't a religion, even though both require lots of time spent on your knees.

Blood tofu?

Sorry, but the Jews may be right on this one.

RexTalionis: What exactly is wrong with the idea of moral relativism?

You gotta remember that to Christians (and not just fundamentalists), the only way to reach paradise in the afterlife is to unconditionally accept the Christian God as master of the entire multiverse and to follow every single rule set out by God. Practicing a different faith, if not no faith at all, means that you are defying his rule and will burn for all eternity, even past the heat death of the universe.
