My wife last week: "It's time to take down Christmas."

Me: "I'm reporting your ass to Fox News, Grinch!"

Turns out she was talking about taking down the Christmas decorations. But you can understand my confusion

Yesterday my 5 year old saw a picture of Shiva and asked who it was. I said he was a Hindu god. She asked me what a god was. I said they were superheroes from another planet. She seemed convinced since he was blue with many arms.

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!


I gotta know right now
Before you go any further
Are you Christian
Will you quote from the Bible
Will you proselytise for the rest of your talk
Will you say religious stuff that'll make us balk
I gotta know right now
Are you Christian
Will you quote from the Bible

Teacher, teacher, let me do my talk
Let me do my talk and you'll have your answer when I'm finished

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.


it IS a chick tract.
They have them all on Chick.com, even the out of print ones.

My two most favorites
The Death Cookie
The Last Generation

They should make some of these into movies. They would be pure awesome.

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.


And when crazed religionists have recruited dozens of kids at each school to stand up and spontaneously start proselytizing in class, that'll be a-ok?

After we let people take whatever drugs they want as long as they are not harming anyone else, we should bring back circuses and lions.

Then all the Christians who want to claim to be persecuted can do so honestly without breaking the ninth.  It wouldn't need to be mandatory, just let them volunteer.

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.


My memory's a little fuzzy, but I think it had something to do with Stone Cold saying so.

ultraholland: brimed03: Didn't QA just get the banhammer for raving?

how? why?


I missed the thread, but apparently he went off on 3D printing-- which apparently was a hobby horse for him-- in a thread that had nothing remotely to do with that topic... it was one straw too many for the mods.  TBH, I don't know a hell of a lot about this, I'm just repeating what someone else explained in a different thread earlier today.  Maybe I shouldn't have referenced it in my rant, in case it isn't what I think it is.  Seeing Starnes columns makes me lose my cool.  And I have so little of that to begin with.

The following was posted-- by QA, or humorous mods, dunno which-- in his profile:

Quantum Apostrophe passed away on December 25th 2013 on a routine space mission. Lightning struck the 3D printer module of the private Mars spacecraft en route to colonize the Red planet. Without a steady supply of plastic trinkets and dubious quality parts, the self-destruct was activated from the ground at 11:00AM EST.
Survived by his two cats, his last wish was that Unchellmatt be reimbursed the fraction of the TF that will not be used, $1.25.


I also see the following has been added, presumably by QA(?):

Somewhere on Mars, in a tool shed behind Elon Musk's condo, lies a Makerbot... Connected to it is a thumb drive with all my posts and DNA... One day a Barsoomian creature will accidentally hit the power switch and I will come back stronger than ever before!

Hey, who are you to tell me the limits of my imagination?

I thought about it, therefore it can will happen!

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.


You're so very wrong. The best time to brainwash a person is when they're young and impressionable.

How would you feel if Brynn was your daughter?

Shocked and puzzled that someone had taught her such nonsense as she was trying to spew in front of the class?

Maybe reporter said, "if had a daughter, she might look like Brynn -- well maybe a little derpier but you know close enough for government work."

I, for one, am glad that the teacher was on the job and alert to this pernicious assault of the good book on this class of unsuspecting kids.

This.  I'm absolutely certain the kid was not coached to disrupt class by reciting Bible verses so that when she was told to sit down and shut up, they could run to Fox News screaming "CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION!!!1!!1!!"

So here's the way I see it. The school district either:
Made a gross mistake;
Is ignorant of the Constitution;
Is infested with radical secularists who like to bully Christian children:
All of the above.



Or: it's all a bunch of bullshait and never happened.
