Not to defend a stupid religious schoolboard, but a 10 year old doesn't have any religion, anyway.  They just say what their parents tell them to say.

So what?

BenJammin: Louisiana appears to be the only state in the U.S. that uses this term, everywhere else it is associated with a church... maybe LA is pulling the big wink?


Parishes here were originally tied to the Church. Nowadays it's just Louisiana being odd one out and not changing it to "county" instead.

What did what I say have anything remotely to do with the constitution?  The schoolboard shouldn't have said what they said.  Kids don't have real religion anyway.  The only people with an opinion are the parents about to make bank and a bunch of bigoted farkers who now have another reason to show bias against southern states.  It really is the last acceptable form of bigotry, you know.

TOSViolation: Rezurok: TOSViolation: All of the "Christians" in the story are actually Atheists who are trying to discredit actual Christians and further remove ACTUAL religious freedom.

They don't want anyone to actually convert to Christianity.  They want to ban ALL expression of ANY religious beliefs in ANY school.  This is just how they go about it.

It's like the U.S. government attacking a site in Miami, in the name of Cuba, so the rest of the U.S.A. would approve of going to war with Cuba.

So in your tiny little mind you believe an atheist would live their public life as a devout fundamental christian in Louisiana, just to generate backlash for christians?  That's the explanation you're going with?  Seriously?  Are you trolling, or just indescribably stupid?

You obviously have no idea the lengths to which some people will go to achieve their world vision.

Also this.


You do realize there's a difference between being playing a role you're being compensated for and living your entire life as a lie to maybe generate a little bad publicity, right?  Right?!  Please tell me you see the difference.  Pretty please.  I want to believe you can.

There are plenty of "Christians" out there who don't really believe a word of it.  Turn on your TV, and you should easily find at least one televangelist who is just in it for the money.  I'm sure plenty of churches are filled with them as well.

If you don't believe there are people out there with enough determination to go to such lengths, then you're an idiot.

I went to the best schools in the state of Louisiana and, that one science teacher aside, had some truly remarkable teachers. Like my biology and chemistry teachers. Absolutely brilliant people. My band instructor was fantastic and I still speak to him on a regular basis. One English teacher in particular was perhaps the kindest person I'd ever met and would go above and beyond for any student.

Well to begin with, you're effectively trying to excuse the school board by implying that it doesn't really matter anyway because "kids don't have religion".

As far as perceived "bigotry" against the southern states, it's not bigotry when they exhibit behavior that rightly gets dismissed. You want the southern States to quit being treated like a joke? Then they need to quit acting like the but of every joke ever written.

But yeah, rather than fix the behavior, the correct answer is to whine about how nobody understands you... That'll get you taken seriously.

My friends did the same thing with their daughter; they are both atheists, and spent a good deal of time teaching critical thinking to the girl. They didn't want to stifle her, though, and allowed her to discover what she could about religion, and choose one if she desired.

One evening, we were all sitting around the dinner table, and the girl asked if she could say grace. Mom and Dad said that would be fine, and we all bowed our heads respectfully as she began: "Let us give thanks to the farmers and ranchers who grew this food, and the truck drivers for taking it to the store, and for the people at the store who got it ready and sold it to us, and for mommy and daddy and uncle Buckler for cooking it. Amen." We all gave a hearty "amen" to that. Mom & Dad would never admit it, but they looked just the tiniest bit relieved.

I may catch flak for this, but I studied at that school after the switch (2010-2012, M.A.). But it doesn't matter--the Bulldogs are now the Ragin' Cajuns. Same spirit, different name. Also: I'm from east of the Vermillion.

I live north of I-10, and I can vouch for this. Most of the money stays south of I-10.  Most of the batshiat crazy stays north of I-10.  If you're not you're a hunter, fisherman, soybean farmer, or a Duck Dynasty groupie, or don't already have family here, there's really nothing else.

I'm a product of Louisiana public schooling (H. L. Bourgeois High School), and my teachers were fantastic. My biology and chemistry teacher--Ms. Hash--was a little loopy but excellent. (She let me play with the Bunsen burners--it's like she wanted me to burn the school down...) My English teacher my junior and senior year--Ms. Burlette, who later married a biology teacher at the same school--was sweet, and not only because she let my G/T class share answers on the tests. Mr. Gautreaux was a history teacher I never had a class with, but he still managed to teach me a lot. My choir director, Ms. Jones, was also amazing. She supported me as a student and as a tenor, and even got me into theatre. (Musical theatre, but still...)

And then there was the basketball coach and athletics director. When I was a basketball manager (I sat in the stands and filmed games for two years to get the letterman jacket), he trusted me with the keys to the concession stand. I didn't abuse the privilege, but I can't recall paying for a Coke at school my last two years.

Point is, yeah I went to a Louisiana public high school. But I still did well in college. And I miss some of my teachers--that's how good an impression they left me with. I even considered getting certified to teach, but...f*ck no.

Actually peas have an enormous amount of protein, depending on how you measure it.

On a per calorie basis, peas have more than 5 times as much protein as beef, and almost zero fat

That's some weapons-grade bullshiat right there.  Steak is comprised of about 50% protein calories.  Twice as much is already 100% protein calories.  5 times as much is 250% protein calories.  Which peas are we talking about, exactly?

Silverstaff: Remember, a lot of Fundamentalists, especially deep in the Bible Belt, sincerely, genuinely believe that it's perfectly legal to do that, since (as I heard it quoted to me) "Separation of church and state is mentioned nowhere in the Constitution".  They sincerely believe that the US is a "Christian state" founded by Christians and it's "liberal" propaganda/lies that you can't force people to worship Jesus or require people to be Christian to be a citizen or vote or hold office.

They basically think that the US is supposed to be a Christian theocracy and was until the last few decades, and it's only godless "liberal" treachery that began sometime in the 60's (or thereabouts) that's preventing that.

No, I'm not joking.



I got into an argument with a Fundie not too long ago about currency.  I mentioned that our money shouldn't say "In God We Trust" and he went off on me.  Turns out, he didn't know that "In God We Trust" wasn't always on our currency.

Word. There are good teachers and there are f*ckhead teachers in every school district.

Hickory-smoked: One test she gave to students asked: "ISN'T IT AMAZING WHAT THE _____________ HAS MADE!"

This alone should be grounds for deportation.

"to comprise" means "to contain" (1), as in "The house comprises seven rooms." In other words, this house has or contains seven rooms. When you use "comprise," you're talking about all the parts that make up something. -

Frederick: Probably been said already; but this is the same mentality that believes in "praying the gay away".


No.....it's the mentality that we aren't all going to change our behavior in your honor.

Nobody cares if you're gay or Asian or buddhist. Knock yourself out.

There does not exist a word or phrase in the english language that could accurately convey how little I care about whether "comprised of" is technically correct grammar.


I'm told "I could care less" works wonders in situations like these.

ciberido: Hermione_Granger: Reminds me of that time I told someone I was black and they were all like, "You know, being black is a choice. Michael Jackson changed his skin color and you could too if you really wanted. You could use a bleaching cream until your skin got white."

Wow. Just wow. I didn't even know where to begin with that one so I just walked away.

Yes, it's a choice, and it's even worse when you have to come out black.


I love Wanda Sykes, and to Hermione I've heard mouth-breathers say that before in fact Iron Sky as a comedy had a bit of fun with it.

El Dudereno: Degenz: Pointy Tail of Satan: Degenz: You ever eat at a Buddhist soup kitchen? Those jackasses only serve ketchup, raman and peas. I don't care what god they believe, or not, their farking brains are starved of protein.

Fail! Peas have lots of protein. Like 5%. Knowledge is power! lol

The other 95% is fiber to make you shiat.

/amirite?

Carbs. Carbs and fiber. Because meditation is pretty energy intensive. And everyone needs to shiat.


Buddhists need beans and peas. You can't fly without gas.
