nickdaisy: Who's with me?
SearchN: I'm a bit confused here. I'll give you, its easy to do but still, can someone explain this:"Brynn's teacher said, 'Stop right there!
FlashHarry: MythDragon: [media.chick.com image 468x240][media.chick.com image 468x240]Suprised the teacher didn't have the kid jailed for saying 'bible'is that a chick tract?btw, i really do find it highly amusing that the WORLD'S LARGEST RELIGION believes that it's persecuted by atheists.
iq_in_binary: Go fark yourself, your hatred and intolerance
Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: nickdaisy: Now be fair Farkers-- don't start blaming Fox News and everyone else who doesn't have multiple piercings and a job that pays by the hour. Fair is fair. This kid can espouse whatever beliefs his little mind can formulate (or more likely regurgitate) as long as he's not interfering with the running of the school. He's not a state institution and the school's not sanctioning his speech.It's the same darn rule you get to use when they drag out that tired "dude wearing dress gets elected homecoming queen" story each year. He's expressing his personal opinion. And just like the school can't stop someone from prancing around dressed like a freak, they can't stop someone from yapping about their favorite fairy tale.Who's with me?Trolly phrasing aside, I'm with you.Wear a garbage bag and read the Upanishad or whatever. Long as it ain't official school policy, I don't care.
untaken_name: Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: serial_crusher: Sounds to me like her assignment was to talk about her show and tell item. If her item had been a bible, I'd say quotes from it were fair game. Nope, she brought a star. John 3:16 has nothing to do with stars. It's really more of an Easter thing.I thought 3:16 was more about rainbow colored wigs.It's about winning football games.
ultraholland: brimed03: Didn't QA just get the banhammer for raving?how? why?

rev. dave: Children should not be so well versed.Parents should lay off the heavy duty religion until the kids are teenagers or later.The teacher stopped one of the most annoying practices of our time.At the very least the kid is being taught the boundaries of polite society.
AutumnWind: I don't see why a family needs a law firm to represent them over this though. Everybody is over reacting everywhere.
nickdaisy: Now be fair Farkers--
RedPhoenix122: Tarkus: These same people would have a fit if a Muslim child started talking about the Koran.Probably try to get the child put in protective custody
what_now: A six year old that can recite Bible versesA law firm called Advocates for Faith and Freedom Fox News Yeah, I'm sure this is an accurate representation of what happened
