Iusedtobeme – I am not saying this is true in this case because I’m not convinced either way yet, but you can’t use that kind of logic. A religious spirit can sound really spiritual but it’s full of “dead men’s bones and all uncleanness”. Just because something looks good and makes her feel better is not how to determine what is from God or not. It must go along with scripture and I don’t know where in scripture a dead loved one comforted a person.

Baptist rhetoric. You use this one scripture to squelch the Holy Spirit from doing any sort of moving in our lives.
God speaks to us through His Word AND He speaks to us personally in lots of ways. And whatever He speaks to us personally should not go against His word. So read the bible and listen to Him and you won’t be led astray.

I agree with teaching your children to be strong in theirs, but when you send them to public school and you work out side the home, you may see them for 3 hours a week day of awake time, while the school has them for at least twice that. Just the overwhelming time spent at school and their indoctrinations can take hold of the kids.
My son was sent out of district to a private school for kids with behavior problems and they were too busy concentrating on that than brainwashing with this crap so he was safe there. So it wasn’t until he went to public high school that they got ahold of him. The peer pressure and crap from the teachers in four years sent him in a bad direction, even though I had taught him the right way and we attended a good church. Thank God when he graduated he eventually back around. I can’t imagine if he’d been in there for his entire school career.

What kind of Christian school is this? It doesn’t even seem Christian…
One with great people but some of whom happen to be very naive because they are so good they don't see the truth that true evil exists.

Look, I agree that everyone who can should home school because schools are horrible and getting worse and I have always thought that homeschooling is best. However, not everyone is working a second job in the family for luxuries, not everyone has a spouse with a job that pays enough for necessities, not everyone with kids has a spouse. Many people are working for rent and food, not vacations and shopping. My husband who never had a good enough job to pay for our necessities, abandoned our family to go live another life and I had to keep working.
So many Americans don’t understand what it’s like to live paycheck to paycheck. Your idyllic idea of life isn’t how it is for MANY of us. I get so annoyed with people and their advice about how if you’ll just tighten your belt you can home school. Come live my life and see if you could have done it.
I understand this. If you absolutely can't keep them out of there, that's different. I wasn't attacking those ppl. My comment was more about those who can but won't. They are all around me, everyday. It makes me so sad. I was one of them. The things we sacrificed, many think are necessities. "Vacations and shopping" doesn't even begin to come close to what I was referring to. I know what it's like to live paycheck to paycheck. I still live that way. I run a very small biz with my husband, and I work hard at it. The economy isn't my friend right now. The stress of juggling everything is ridiculous at times. My life isn't very peachy from the world's standards, but we are happy and satisfied.Just clarifying, cuz you seemed to infer that I just had to give up my shopping.

I see nothing wrong with teaching the history of religions.Not songs and theology, except basics like one or many gods and such.
It can be a benefit to teach what the various religions stand for and what they believe. There is no credible proof for what any of them claim. The more the kids learn about the religions, the more secular they become. They start thinking critically. We all know that most religious believers picked up their beliefs from their families and communities. It gets passed down. But more and more Americans are becoming free thinkers, not subscribing to any religious belief.

Learning about all religions is fine as long as they spend the same amount of time on them all and don’t teach with a favorable slant towards any of them. I don’t approve using a song. Because music make something sink in so much better, the kids will be singing about Allah and not even know what’s happening to them.And if they taught “Jesus Loves Me” it would be all over the nightly news.

Treehorn, are you not reading the article? It said that the Islamic relations dude thought that this could raise an anti-Islam crapstorm and he doesn’t want that.

ms2020 – the kids probably never told the parents and so many parents hand their kids over to the school system to raise their kids and don’t get involved.

Not all homeless are drunk, smelly or a bastard. And none have ever told me they are a veteran.
It’s good that some people film this stuff. It helps others that don’t pay attention to the homeless to remember they need our help.

Single room facilities in public are used for nefarious reasons (shooting up drugs, sex,and other stuff). Stores don’t like them. But we like them because we know no one else is in there with us.

Women’s rooms are very disgusting now compared to when I was young. They hover instead of sit and make a huge mess. I walk into a public restroom and have to skip half of the stalls because of the disgusting who knows what dripped all over.

If there are going to be urinals, yes, there’s a big reason to keep them separate.Because the person using the urinal is exposing his junk to anyone walking by. Maybe he doesn’t don’t want a woman seeing him as she is walking past him to use the toilet.
And for real, in the ladies room it’s less of an issue of exposure.
I only see it as a problem because a rapist/creep/weirdo can walk into the opposite sex’s bathroom and no one will pay attention. And then that person has access they never had before.

I have heard that the CA libs that have ruined most of CO are not in the big cities in Texas.
Commiefornia progs are a plague that is spreading throughout our land. They will not rest until defeated or until all of America is as insane as they wish it to be.

If the door shows both sexes, then the person who needs to use the bathroom can decide if they want to go there or not. However, there should be other separate bathrooms, one for XX and one for XY and then the ones that can’t decide go use that “shared” one.
Simple. Bring some masking tape. And cover a symbol.
But what is funny is using the toilet waste more water and cost more. So any Liberal for everyone using toilets is obviously not for Climate Change and for water conservation....PERIOD. No excuses.

What an entitled fool. She thinks it’s her job to go around fixing other’s “faults”. What is she, 15 yrs old? Most people mature as they grow older and realize that we can’t make other people act like we want them to and we concentrate on our own behavior instead.

We already have young men who have just decided having a relationship with a woman is just not worth the crazy that comes with it. There are articles written about it. They are calling it a sexodus. Men are retreating into the internet world and gaming instead of dealing with women.
You shared a contemporary truth. I saw that happen with a close relative of mine. He has gone beserk with the internet games and is losing sleep through this self-destruction. This has all been planned so that the new generation and even the older one becomes dysfunctional.
notice how many articles of women who cannot find husbands, it in most all women mags today

This is not what tough love is, if a person even agrees with the concept.
