Exactly. And that is human nature. You can acknowledge something is wrong on an objective level but you may only feel outraged by something that is
dear to oneself. I feel outraged when I see that. I felt outrage hearing what my brother went through as an elementary student when his teachers
enrolled him in new age meditation where they were instructed to contact spirits and go on guided 'mind trips.' The children were even given
instructions not to tell their parents about it. It was a huge scandal back in the 80's (Looks up the DUSO program).
But because I'm a Christian, it's difficult to feel 'outraged' or 'violated' when it happens to be something I agree with. However, I would
rather it be 'nothing at all' and I can worship in private as I see fit than to be told in order to accommodate my beliefs, we have to accept
everything else as well. It's just not worth it to me.
Because Christ is something we carry in our hearts, it is fine. The only thing I do get pretty pissy about are the totally moronic stories like a
teacher getting fired because she wore a cross pendant or students were not allowed to offer thanks to God in their graduation speech.
That is over the line IMO because it has nothing to do with the laws concerning a government-sanctioned religion or congress passing laws concerning
religion. Instead, that is PC overkill and a infringing on the person to express their beliefs in a personal way.
So, alright. I can agree to not all get together and force everyone to pray to my God. However, let's not get ridiculous either and make it a federal
case when I pray over my lunch at school, etc.
