I do not ever recall our school system, gov., or church holding a gun on anyone making them of forcing them to pray in the name of the Christian God, or to Jesus Christ. We have always asked. Others do not have to participate. If you do not want your child to pray fine, (we will pray for you & your child).
But, the school system still forces satanism on everyone, come Oct. My children have to attend school with witches & witches on their broom sticks, ghosts, spiders, spiders web, and these things that represents satan & satan worship. But, the Christians, come Christmas, & Easter cannot have up anything that represent Christ. No Jesus on the cross,(but a witch on a broomstick), no Baby Jesus in a manager, (but a BUNNY with EGGS & a basket), & so on. Why, haven't Christian said anything about this? I have but I am only one & you have to have others on your side.
I am a born again Christian. Thanks to my countrymen who Have fought & died for what we believe in. Under God for which it stands. This is talking about the God of heaven & earth. For back then we had the freedom to pray & read our Bibles in school. We started EVERY day when I was a child in school with Bible reading, prayer, & pledged to the AMERICAN flag.
America, is a free country & I would like for it to stay that way. I don't want someone pointing a gun at my head & telling me I have to pray to Buddha, or Alla, or any other god other than my own God.
In the American Native Nations there were tribes who were believers. Who do you think the tribes were praying to when they lifted their hands toward the heavens & prayed to the Great Spirit In the sky. Do You think God is so stupid He wouldn't make a way for everyone to come to Him?
Jesus said, "I AM the WAY, the TRUTH, and the Life, NO MAN comes to the FATHER E-X-C-E-P-T through ME." John 14: 1-7
There were tribes who didn't believe, just as there are nation's & people who do not believe now.
Any school that teaches another way other that what this great nation was founded upon it should also be mandatory to teach the Bible right next to it.
Why would I want my child to sit in a class room that is teaching something else other than the Bible, when the Bible can't even be taught? I feel as if my right's have already been violated, & taken away. My children can't wear anything to school that represents Chirstianty, no shirt, with a cross, nothing, but, muslim, have there own dress code. They can pray, or whatever. Now the point, I don't care what they wear, or whatever, but I was always taught "What is good for the goose is good for the gander", If your are going to do for one then do for them all. No one is more special than another.
