The Republican party is fully insane. They have given up any hope of becoming normal and gone headlong into religi-tard mode.
I know a lot of people will argue about their own beliefs and say that their party is just trying to stand up for whats right, but they are ignoring
the potential outcome of their way of thinking. There are consequences to making your own religious values control young minds so you feel better
about what they are taught. It is a lie. You can lie to kids all you want and make them pass your tests, but eventually they will lash out and find
the truth in spite of you.
I know this firsthand since I was raised Catholic and later was goaded into becoming a born again Christian. Guilt is a powerful weapon and they wield
it like a sword. One of the first things I realized after becoming "Born again" was that the people around me were mostly using me for their own
benefit. I was constantly being told I needed to do this or that for others in the church because they were Christians. They used me up and eventually
I began to see through their BS.
The day I decided to quit and actually lost all hope in God was the day I was in church with my wife and a couple in front began "Speaking in
tongues". It seemed awfully convenient that the woman was the one babbling and her husband was the only person who could translate the message God
was giving the church. Penn and Teller would have laughed their asses off, but everyone in the church was impressed and saying praise Jesus etc.
I decided I could not support this obvious treachery any longer. I stood up and left. The "Door man" tried to stop me, but I pushed right past him
and didn't look back. I have no sympathy for those who are starry eyed followers of scam artists like this. I can see their true intentions now as
easy as I see light outside.
So the Republican party thinks this is what our children need. They think the values instilled in them because of the religious teachings will fix our
country. They think Roe V Wade is wrong and needs to be reversed even though there are studies linking the drop in crime directly to abortion due to
unwanted babies not being born. The unwanted babies grow up to become criminals and the crime rate goes up. Our prisons are already past capacity
which is why all the drug offenders are cheap labor for the new scam: Private Prisons.
If the Republican party wants to be the religious party good for them. I think there are enough people who are not Christians who will tell them to
stick it. I doubt Muslims or Jews will vote Republican much less any Atheists or non denominational people. The problem is that we have a 2 party
system and they can get control and pass laws because of it. If it was a simple majority and not a vote along party lines things would be
This is a perfect example of why we need separation of church and state. Making the children do what we say because we know what is best for them is a
worn out rhetoric. I grew up hearing that BS. Every time I asked a tough question they would make fun of me or belittle me until I quit asking. That
is the old way. The new way is to allow children to form a real set of tools to understand things for themselves and make up their own mind about what
they have learned. It is really hard to be objective when you are not allowed to see both sides equally.
Having religion in public schools is simply insane. Having a religious school is fine and the tuition is higher because they have a tough curriculum
and higher standards. They also teach their version of the bible and their own religious values which they deem important for young minds and that is
fine. I applaud parents who send their children to a Catholic school because those kids will be smarter than their counterparts in public school. I
know because I went to a Catholic school and then a public high school. I also got my Bachelor from a Catholic university.
Military schools are similar to Catholic schools in their requirements and difficulty. That does not mean all kids should be Catholic or go into the
military. The Republican party would be fine with all children being taught their version of the bible because they are right, according to them, and
there can be only one highlander.
Just to clarify for those who will attack Obama thinking it will hurt my feelings, I am not Democrat or republican so crank that tired old ploy right
up. I am not religious or Atheist. I don't believe in God, the Devil or the Easter Bunny. I do not support any groups. I am a free thinker who uses
critical thinking every day. I am capable of anything I set my mind to because of that ability. Religi-tards are not because they are limited to what
they can think and their beliefs get in the way of facts.
There is no place in our government for religion. It is a personal choice for parents to make their children believe what they want. It should never
be left to our public schools to teach it.
