Why do all these school prayer people feel the need to force Jews to commit apostasy?

To, you philistine, not on.

/but truth be told, my first thought was that we need a Southern Buk*ke Convention, to "anoint the sinners".

Dude lived with 12 other guys, he thought nothing of kissing them affectionately, and he liked to wash other guys' feet.  You do the math.

Morrison said attendance was not mandatory, and students could have stayed in classrooms if they wanted.
The lawsuit claims otherwise, citing an email Frazier sent to teachers before the senior class assembly on April 9. It also says students were prevented by a school security officer from leaving.


Oh for F*ck's sake.  Whether or not those servile f*ckwits in the Senior Class volunteered to do it, whether or not their church was "officially" involved (and I'd wager they certainly encouraged it if not instructing the kids to do it, since this type of "witnessing" is an integral part of the Evangelical faith), you can't do this shiat.

Seriously, The South - WTF is WRONG with you?

Arrogance.  They are certain that they, alone, understand the word and have all the answers.  It's the sin of pride.

Meh, school should just apologize and stop doing it, and the atheists should be ok with that.

Jesus is of absolutely no use unless you plan on following his teachings.  In fact these actions are in direct violation of the teachings of Jesus.  It was He who said, "Render unto Caesar that which is Ceaser's.  Render unto God that which is God's".  And they're doing it for the sole purpose that Matthew 6:6 rails against.

For shame.

I didn't grow up in the South, but if this kind of thing had gone on at my high school, there would have been two types of reactions from the vast majority of the 14-18 year olds in the student body: 1) some of the kids would have openly ridiculed them, and 2) the rest would have avoided the "weird churchees."  Church was for an hour on Sunday where I grew up.

Maybe this kind of thing is "cool" in the South.  Maybe it is just that everything is a little different 20 years later.  But I have to wonder whether the participants in these types of events are hoping for ridicule to feed their Christian persecution complex.

PA pagan directory has a list of pagan groups in your area.

(Voodoo has better toys and weirder symbols, but it's less likely to get you laid.  Depends on what you want from a religion, I guess.)

all poodles are dogs, but not all dogs are poodles.  'pagan' is a pretty specific term and denotes a celtic or Mediterranean pantheon (or simply worshiping the God and Goddess).  Voodoo is more centered on south american and/or Caribbean tradtiions and beliefs and incorporates (or outright kidnaps) some christian saints and concepts.  so while I suppose that from one perspective you could say that any religion NOT christian is 'pagan', that like saying unix is exactly like OS/390 because neither operating system is Windows.  technically true, but also very inaccurate.

I think i'll walk down that list, see if any groups listed are still active.

and I'll pass on the voodoo.  I know someone who follows that path.  she's got issues.

All of these. I live in Georgia and see this kind pseudo-Christian posturing constantly. We have the distinction to being host to Chik-Fil-A HQ and the school district (Marietta) that put those little "evolution is only a theory" stickers on some science books.

I'm escaping to Seattle next year if all goes well; can't wait to get out of the south.

Weaver95: 'pagan' is a pretty specific term


Number one in Websters baby:
pagan
1: heathen 1; especially : a follower of a polytheistic religion (as in ancient Rome)


That's a big umbrella you've got there and how it's used by Wiccans, Druids, and every other fringe religion I've met. Pagan in the catch all term for everything that's not Abrahmic or Buddhism.

There are pagan groups in PA, fyi. I'm not in touch anymore, but any reason to visit New Hope is a good one.

you dont have to convert all at once.. in fact, many people started out with paganism simply by realizing windows computers often work better after you drip goat blood on the keyboard.

There's lots of ways up the mountain.. best part? You can still celebrate christmas!

Christianity 2,200,000,000
Islam 1,750,000,000
Buddhism 1,200,000,000
Judaism 13,400,000

There's only so many people on Earth. Top estimates for Wicca place it in and around 1,000,000 people at the highest. Wicca is the most widely accepted pagan religion. Fringe is an accurate term, I'd say. Although I'd like to see it and some of the older polytheistic ones more mainstream.

They do it because they truly believe they have a moral and religious obligation to do everything they can to bring "sinners" "into the fold", no matter what.
