An areligious worldview is in a sense impossible since the word religion comes from the Latin religere which means to bind together. So a worldview to which one hitches their interpretation of life is in a sense a religion and this includes materialism. Govt schools shouldn't exist period, but if the diverse taxpayers are going to be financially raped to support these idiot factories then they have NO right to be hostile to any religion which is another reason they shouldn't exist. The govt educational industrial complex is NOT neutral but hostile to the majority religion. This is treasonous to the populace. Secularism is a piss poor 'religion' leaving man without purpose, meaning , and morals.
They've been doing the same thing in Western Europe with areligious views in schools and it's only allowing Islamic extremism to flourish.

I think you mean “us and our particular, religiously inflected interpretation of the constitution.”

How about Scott Joplin? He was born in Texas, and I can’t see how he could be a controversial choice.

Why does the school have to be named after a person anyway?
For the same reason US Aircraft Carriers are named after Presidents now instead of famous battles like the USS Lexington, USS Yorktown.
To prey on the man's ego, self importance, pretentiousness and ostentatious nature.

Maybe it isn’t necessary to pass such a bill. We always need to treat what politicians say with skepticism. Maybe the problem isn’t actually this serious. Maybe the statistics can be interpreted in a different way. Maybe this is just grandstanding, dog whistling to a conservative, prudish electorate.

All the world’s calenders are not based on the “time before and after Jesus”, whatever that means. Some examples:
According to the Thai (Buddhist) calender we are in year 2559. According to the Hebrew calendar, we are in year 5776. According to two different Zoroastrian calendars we are either in year 1386 or 3754. The calendar we use has both Catholic )Gregorian) and pagan Roman (Julian) origins. The current month of April was named by pagans, as was the current day (Monday). So you are basically spectacularly wrong…

What a bunch of bigoted little scaredy-cats.
We don’t even know if this person is a Muslim, let alone a terrorist. There are millions of Arabic speaking Christians, and they use the word inshallah in their speech. It means “God willing”, literally, where Allah means God.
Say, Stupid. Do you think the 911 hijackers were speaking English when they flew those planes into the WTC? Idiot.
What is a racist TheCalmOne?
Do you mean the millions of Arabic speaking Christians who thumb their noses up at Jews? Those ones?
Arabic speaking Christians who are also on the receiving end of Islamic hatred, persecution and genocide do not cry racism or Islamophobia when mistaken for a possible terrorist and in the end, appreciate efforts to keep them safe. Is it pleasant? Absolutely not. No more pleasant than the rest of us having to go through body scanners and security checks at the airport. My half brother is of Indian descent, has brown skin, wears a beard and gets profiled all the time. He does not blame "Islamophobia" for this unpleasant inconvenience. He blames the Islamic terrorists.
Fly in ignorance then...
TheCalmOne a group who is constantly in the news for murder and mayhem Might make a more than a few nervous. With state sponsored terrorism just imagine what is possible in creating concealable explosives. So you take action and are embarrassed. Sorry to have bothered you sir. But if you do not take action on suspicious actions the result could be a repeat of 911. I would rather be apologizing and be embarrassed. Would do the same to any group known for blowing themselves up with aplomb, Do you think the group on flight 93 were scaredy-cats when the charged the cockpit with no weapons????? With a little more suspicion, maybe someone could have prevented one of the flights from being taken over. Vigilance is not fear, naiveté will lead to surprise and terror let a lone fear.
by the way words like Bigot, homophobe, Racist, Etc. are losing their effectiveness in cowing the rest of us. It is almost getting to be a complement when you look at those stooping to use such invectives.
Well, we notice you are to ‘CHICKEN’ to take on the responsibility, liability and ‘YOUR LIFE’ to allow the plane to continue on without checking. The aircraft people are in a catch 22.
Reference – “There are millions of Arabic speaking Christians, and they use the word inshallah in their speech.”
You are such a idiot to try making such a bogus statement. Especially considering the context that Muslims use it. Compared to Christians. It is bad enough that Muslims stole many terms/words to begin with.
Buy the way…really, after all the killings. How many Christians do really think are left in Baghdad, or in Iraq. Secret…not many. — But I’m glad you brought that up. Because you just highlighted the fact that the media, and all involved are deliberately trying to hide the religion. And it goes along with Obama and the Liberals trying to cover up attention involving Muslims. Just like they are doing with Blacks. – Yet if this would have been a white and/or Christian person. They would have been all over it.
Thanks for bring that to everyones attention.
But again…you would be the first one crying if they would not have checked. And someone got happened and killed. Especially considering the Liberals have charged children with much less. And kicked them out of school for much less. So, you must be a bigot. Since you don’t want to treat everyone the same in the new Obama and Liberal fascist dictatorship wanna be Socialist country. ..lol

The Obama administration and Obama himself are center right in comparison with other advanced nations. The assertion that the USA is becoming a very progressive socialist nation is utterly ridiculous. For a start, the USA does not have a universal health system or free university. Nor has Obama made any moves to nationalize the banks or the means of production. You people are so ignorant it’s pathetic.

I’ve always wondered what these idiots think happened before God supposedly changed the laws of physics and created rainbows. Did light not refract? In that case, how did eyes work?
