Yes they should teach the Bible in schools but also as a Christian I do believe it would be a good thing to teach at the middle and high school age level but you have to give these children Christians do believe that religion can't be forced upon anyone. Offer the classes if the children want to take the bible classes then let them but dot force them too take them they already make the children study religions so why not give them the choice to study the religion our country was founded on in depth and what it really means to be a Christian and to live that kind of live. Of the children of the world were taught about Jesus and had the choice everyday to accept him as thier savior instead of just on Sunday's and wednesdays(and that's only if thier parents take them to church) well then maybe this world could Change and be a better place. A place where you felt safe like you use to

I can't believe this is even an issue- of course teach the bible in school- if for no other reason than it is the basis of our culture, it could also be taught as history, as the bible is the most accurate historial work from ancient times. You want to teach evolution- a faith based belief - and call it science! You want to allow tolerance for other beliefs, then how can you justify blocking the belief system of 75% of the popualtion? This is absurd. Take a look to the right of this comment column- what do you see? the horoscope- a faith baaed system - now called 'new age' but really very old age- from Babylonia originally- and no one is screaming about it- wake up Americans before you lose your country and your heritage.
Great Post!

Religion is spoke about in history classes. Christianity is spoken about in history classes. Often to the point were Christians get angry for showing the atrocities of the religions history. Crusades and inquisitions top the list. Witch burning in the new land(America).
The great flood never happened. Teaching this is not accurate history. Historians see no evidence of the exodus.
Whoever told you the bible is an accurate portrayal of history lied.
Wrong again!

Geesh!

Virginia Pastor Timothy David Miller was convicted Tuesday of helping a former lesbian flee the country with her young daughter.
Lisa Miller, who is not related to the pastor, was involved in a custody dispute with her former lesbian partner, Janet Jenkins, over her daughter Isabella.
The dispute took place after Miller, the girl's birth mother, renounced homosexuality, became a Christian, and moved to Virginia.
She disappeared in September of 2009 along with the child after a Vermont judge awarded custody of the child to Jenkins, who is the non-biological parent.
After several hours of deliberation Tuesday, the jury convicted Timothy Miller of aiding in the removal of a child from the United States with intent to obstruct lawful exercise of parental rights.
The Stuarts Draft, Va., pastor could be sentenced to serve up to three years for the crime.
"I am willing to accept the consequences of my actions," Miller said Tuesday. "I am at peace with God. I am peace with my conscience and I give it over to God, and at the same time I respect the decision of the court."
The pastor, who was ordered to surrender his passport, will remain free pending sentencing.
Meanwhile, Jenkins is suing her former partner and the pastor for unspecified monetary damages.

Praise God! He can make the Un-clean, Clean again!
Amen!

Okay maybe so , but we do tend to remain human , and sin will be a daily thing. As the saying goes Forbidden Fruit causes many jams. GOOD looks catch the eye but a GOOD personality catches the heart. If God could only bless us all with both. Great nite to you , I tend to agree with you on alot , not all, but alot.

Please read Revelation 12:7, 9, and 12. You will notice in 12:12 "Woe for the earth", that corresponds with what Jesus said at Matthew 24:7. That took place with the outbreak of World War I of 1914. So that proves Jesus has already taken action and thrown Satan down to the earth. The Bible says that Satan has a short period of time. So you could rightly say that we are in the last day of the last days!

This is why the bible should not be taught in schools. It can lead to criminal behavior like this. It makes one do bad because they are deluded to think it is good.

They say decisions make wealth. So I guess , I must have made the wrong ones...lol
No wealth is not measured by how much money you have, it is measured by family, health, love , and friendships, things that are sometimes hard to see and even harder to be thankful for at times. Wishing you are all very wealthy in this life and very well took care of in the next
I may wonder why God leads me certain places, and wonder why I feel alone , and then I realized he is not leading me maybe Satan is , and I just forgot to ask God to walk with me!!!
well

***CBN news letter***
Taxpayers are continuing to lose money from the auto industry bailout given to General Motors by the Obama administration.
A recent drop in GM stock prices means the government will lose $25 billion on the bailout.
The Obama administration spent $80 billion to dig GM and Ally Financial, the company's former finance arm, out of its debt. But so far, the government has only been paid back $37 billion.
Currently, the government owns 500 million shares of General Motors stock. But the stock price dropped 15 percent between late February and May, costing taxpayers another $3.3 billion.

His polocies have hindered economic growth, even though I am

That's 3 years into his administration! If that is what we get to look forwad to...

<quoted text>well, the ones (like you and Skeptic) who do not like it are the ones who use the f word and the excrement words, and are inferior human beings, despite being smart enough to be atheists. There is no reason to assume that a person who is smart enough not to believe in the horrid Biblical God will be a decent person, or a kind person, or a civil person. And there is also reason to see that many decent persons are socalled christians, and nicer people than you and Skeptic and your obscene tribe.
Of course there is serious discussion about hard and soft atheism, and it is not just mine. I am just objecting to the use of the terms soft and weak, which are used in opposition to the terms hard and strong - to draw a contast between non-knowledge asserting atheists and knowledge-asserting atheists.
You obviousliy do not have a philosophical mind, nor does
skeptic. You belong more in a bar using your obscene language, rather than in a discussion among intelligent thinkers.
You are arrogant, as he is, and have nothing to be arrogant about. Anyone with any sense can see that your comments are generally shallow and trite, and mostly attacks, and slightly obscene attempts to be funny, and not the work of a thoughtful person.
I do distinguish between individuals who are atheists, on many grounds. One of them is whether they are decent or obscene. One is whether they are nasty or civil. One is whether they are philosophical or shallow. One is whether they are socalled hard (arrogant, or rigid, knowledge claiming, braggarts) or agnostic.
Some folks fail on all counts, and some only on a few, and some are wonderful. The same is true on the atheist forum.
If you think I would respect any old scum just because he happens to be an atheist, you expect too much. There is nothing more to being an atheist than not believing in a God, god, Gods, or gods. It says nothing more about the person. Nothing about his character, his behavior, his intelligence.
Furthermore there are decent believers, who are much better human beings than certain atheists, even though their beliefs seem very foolish.
You types who use the words buybull and Christard and f** and S** and similar language are the inferior type of humans, who do not show thoughtfulness or civility, who are arrogant and highhanded bullies. It is very important for a decent person who is also an atheist to repudiate the rotten people who are atheists - just as it is important for decent persons who are believers in this or that faith to repudiate the rotten people who believe in it, and the most rotten aspects of their religions.
No, you are mistaken about my views, but you are a false accuser - more like a Romney Ryan Republican - and it is hardly worth explaining anything to you. Why don't you go work for Karl Rove?
DID Like your post's not so much NOW the arrogance in this Post is SICK.

I think imposters would fail and would make you look better than you are. that said, I would object to anyone who did it, if it were seriously an attempt to deceive, rather than just kidding. ABC could hardly do mockery any worse than what you do seriously.
it was OK with some folks and not with others when I wrote this to yaa. as shown by the judgeits. I bet that accusing an atheist of being disgusting and obscene would get the same mixed reaction - from a different set of sources. But disgusting and obscene comments are unacceptable whether they come from a fundie socalled Christian or from an atheist. I do not believe in a double standard.

I think that I read somewhere that the last generation to be able to read most of the highest knowledge available in their time, was that of Thomas Jefferson. Most people in our age - maybe even most college educated people - have not made much of a dent in the mass of information and thoughtful writing available to us. There is no common denominator of great thinkers or great books that we are all required to read, and sometimes students are required to read things that bore them terribly, so they do not really enjoy it or learn it.

Besides, the Texas GOP platform makes it clear that the teaching of critical thinking skills is a dangerous practice, and I am sure many parents agree with that.
