    Which is precisely what I said if you were paying attention.

    Satin is the fabric of our lives.

    And no, we haven’t distorted the establishment clause, that’s why the courts keep agreeing with us on it. They understand the original intent.

    Not telling the whole truth is the same as lying.

    But not having a clue what you are talking about and thus no ability to understand what I’m talking about is probably just as bad.

    A bag of space dust? Amusing but accurate. We are all made up of elements formed in stars.

    Beyond that the point you are making is so poorly written that it’s not clear to me what you’re saying. Are you saying that I leave out the ‘congress shall make no law’ part because I am trying to be deceptive?

    Sorry, but no, that’s not how it works. I’m making the general assumption that people know what I’m talking about, an assumption I should not have made with you.

    Are you making the argument that unless it’s congress that passes the law, then it’s fine? That’s an argument I’ve seen a thousand times. It’s wrong, but people keep making it.

    If the Constitution forbids the government from doing something, it forbids the government at all levels from doing it. From congress down to the county clerk.

    ‘FFRF never fights anyone but Christians’

    I’m sure they’ll get around to fighting against all the Islamic symbols on public lands and Islamic ideas being pushed in to schools… Just as soon as you can find some.

    Cue somebody with the religious accommodation story so I can roll my eyes and laugh again.

    @TeresaJ

    “I said what it actually does, not what you’ve been told or think it does.”

    That applies to you as well.

    In your case it’s ‘what it actually does as opposed to what you think it does’

    Would you like the whole story? Probably not but you’re getting it anyway.

    It’s apparently legal for Christians to hand out religious material similar to this and therefore it is legal for ANY religious organization to do it. All the arguments Christians make about why they should be able to use public schools to promote their religion usually take the form of ‘don’t have to participate’ or ‘won’t be hurt just by hearing it’

    People like me have been saying FOR YEARS that if it were any other religion Christians would immediately explode in outrage over it.

    Do you think maybe we were right about that?

    So now that it’s legal for religious material to be handed out to children in this particular district, hope you enjoy the Satanic, Islamic, Hindu, ect ect material being given to children.

    FFRF doesn’t want any religious material, but if it’s going to be allowed then they will happily say ‘Alright then, open the flood gates’.

    Now you get to enjoy the same thing atheists have for years: Children being exposed to religious practices that you find repugnant in apparent violation of the Establishment clause.

    Enjoy!

    @foo

    It’s okay foo, you’ll grow up one day and actually be able to come up with something resembling a counter argument rather than just ‘Well I think you’re stupid!’

    I call people stupid all the time. I explain why they’re stupid using logic and reason.

    You just sit around huffing because somebody said something you don’t like that you’re incapable of arguing against. This is why in the marketplace of ideas, the good ones usually win, particularly when people you can’t even present alternatives.

    @foo

    You make me laugh kid. I get enough amusement out of the whole ‘You support the idea of treating everyone like human beings so there’s something wrong with you’ but when I can honestly say that treating people with more respect and decency than Christians do gets under their skin?

    Now THAT’S hilarious. So go on, make me laugh some more kid.

    I like how as usual you are utterly incapable of actually addressing the point I made because if you did you’d look even stupider.

    No sign maker would have made them. So that’s probably exactly what happened. He got a bunch of signs made with a blank spot then filled it in.

  • [2] September 18, 2014 at 2:19pm

    No, that would be liberals.

    You want to see racism? Be a minority that disagrees with liberals.

    You want to see sexism? Be a female that disagrees with liberals.

  • [2] September 18, 2014 at 2:17pm

    I’m sorry, but you’re going to find no anti-Israel or anti-Jewish signs at Tea Party protests.

    You will find them aplenty at liberal events.

    These were the anti-Bush er anti-’war’… protests back during the Bush administration.

    It was only a technicality to begin with since the helmets were school property. If they’d had the sticker on a personal item then nobody could have said a word.

    ‘The schools are now in the hands of state governments’

    And since a state can no more violate the Establishment clause than the federal government can…

    Going to move them to county control next?

    Still can’t violate the Establishment clause.

    The same way you can believe in any other supernatural thing but not another supernatural thing? Does belief in one supernatural entity mean you believe in all of them?

  • [-3] September 18, 2014 at 11:56am

    ” If FFRF was opposed to religious indoctrination”

    Well it’s a good thing they’re not opposed to it. Might want to look in to what FFRF actually does.

    No I said what it actually does, not what you’ve been told or think it does.

  • [3] September 18, 2014 at 11:54am

    @john

    Yes, I’ve heard of a smoke screen. Christians throw one up every time somebody points out something that makes them uncomfortable about their belief system.

  • [-3] September 18, 2014 at 11:53am

    Troll: Person who says something contrary just to make you angry, whether they believe it or not.

    Not-Troll: Person who says something they honestly believe that you happen to disagree with.

    Crying ‘troll’ in response to every poster who says something you don’t like and can’t argue with just makes you look silly.

  • [1] September 18, 2014 at 11:50am

    Here’s what you actually just asked.

    ‘They don’t have the same concept of what Satan is that I do so why are they claiming they don’t worship the Satan that matches the concept I have’

  • [-1] September 18, 2014 at 11:48am

    Just FYI…

    Most sensible people feel the same way you do right now after watching the video “Jesus Camp”.

    “teaches your values”

    Alternately you could teach values at home and let schools teach things like math and science.

  • [-5] September 18, 2014 at 9:38am

    Stories like this are what make the Christians in this country look so pathetic when they prattle on about how persecuted they are.
