Same schools that teach 8th graders how to send sext messages properly so they don’t get others in trouble.

Same schools that promote “multiculturalism” over community.

Same schools that teach 6th grade girls how to put a condom on a banana.

Same schools that have transgender days.

But god forbid you show a real play with no indecency, that might damage the fragile little minds!
I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

WTF people? Do you not see the problem here is that they were being brought to A CHURCH to see this play? No problem with the play at all. Or Christmas. Try and take my kids to a church... yeah, we have a problem.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23766809


Why?

You think that one outing to a church is going to brainwash them to the point of no return?

Get a fucking grip.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

I agree with this. And I'm a Christian.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10783814


And I feel the same way when schools try to indoctrinate 5 year old kindergartners with sex education and the homosexual agenda.

I've got no problem with birth control, gays or sex. But I will control how, when and why my kids are exposed to it...

Or politics... Or the ways schools peddle the FDA pyramid that's killing our nation... Or a half dozen other things...

So get in line behind the problems... Your kid is not nearly at as high risk of harmful indoctrination at a church as they would be sitting in the classroom.

The children can't get on the bus to go to the play, without a signed permission slip. Children who do not have a signed permission slip, usually get to join another class or have a free fun day in the school.

I personally find it crazy that parents have the right to keep their children from seeing Charlie Brown, but can't even be notified when their children are being indoctrinated into the homosexual agenda.
 Quoting: samanthasunflower


Amen to that!

Your kids need a note to see a Charlie Brown Christmas, however your under-age daughter wants an abortion, NO NOTE NEEDED!

What a society we now have!

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (CBS Atlanta) — Charlie Brown has been caught in the crossfire of the “war on Christmas” mantra.

KARK-TV reports that some parents were upset that Terry Elementary School in Little Rock wanted to take children to go see a play of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at a local church.

“The parents that we know in this situation are reluctant to speak up because they are concerned about their kids being singled out and bullied,” Anne Orsi, a lawyer and member of the Arkansas Society of Free Thinkers, told KARK.

The group is a volunteer organization of secular individuals whose goals are to “promote public acceptance of nonbelievers” and “defend science education and the separation of church and state.”

Orsi said on the group’s Facebook page that the school is “sponsoring field trips to evangelical churches.”

“While everyone loves Charlie Brown, the religious content of the program is a problem, as is the trip to a church to see it,” she said.

Parents had mixed feelings about the controversy.

Shamar Stokes told KARK that he has a problem with the religious aspect but, in the end, “wouldn’t have a problem with my child going to see Charlie Brown.”

One unidentified parent did have a problem, though.

“I think church and school should be kept completely separate at all times,” the parent told the station.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas,” which was first released in 1965, is the story about Charlie Brown looking past the commercialism that surrounds Christmas and finds the true meaning of the day through his friend Linus.

Actually China's 1-child policy will inevitably start a war in a generation or two. When most every parent chooses to have 1 boy and no girls, you will have a generation of hormonal boys growing into angry men in search of women. If we're lucky they will only start a civil war, but it's also possible for them to unite and invade to get women.

Your so smart? Then you should know about Thanskgiving and the Pilgrims.


Captain Christopher Jones informed them that the long, low shore was part of a great arm of land called Cape Cod—far north of the territory which their patent entitled them to settle. With winter setting in along dangerous shoals, however, the expedition could spend no more time searching for the territory of the Virginia Company. Pastor Robinson had told them in his farewell letter to form a “body politic.” Their own Scrooby Church Covenant would serve as a model for the Mayflower Compact.

As they had begun their long voyage by kneeling on the dock at Delftshaven to ask God’s guidance, so they ended it by kneeling on the sands of Cape Cod to thank Him for His providence. Bradford marveled at

this poor people’s condition . . . no friends to welcome them, nor inns to entertain or refresh their weather-beaten bodies, no houses . . . to repair to . . . Whichever way they turned their eyes (save upward to the heavens) they could have little solace . . . . For summer being done, all things stand upon them . . . and the whole country, full of woods and thickets, represented a wild and savage hue. If they looked behind them, there was the mighty ocean . . . What could now sustain them but the Spirit of God and His grace?
Providentially, they found land already cleared at “Plymouth.” It seemed as of some unseen friend had prepared this very spot in anticipation of their arrival, but more storm clouds of trials were yet to come.

The first winter was dreadfully bitter. By April 1621 the Pilgrims had lost twenty-eight of their forty-eight male adults, including Governor John Carver. When the worst was finally over, forty-seven people had died, nearly half of their original number. They buried their dead at night in shallow unmarked graves so that the Indians could not know their losses. But God’s hand of mercy guided the struggling colony to survival and fulfillment. Governor Bradford said, “They fetched them wood, made them fires, dressed them meat, made their beds, washed their loathsome clothes . . . . In a word, did all the homely and necessary offices . . . which dainty and queasy stomachs cannot endure . . . and all this willingly and cheerfully, without any grudging in the least, showing therein their true love unto their friends and brethren; a rare example and worthy to be remembered.”

The high point of their week was Sunday worship, held in the blockhouse at the top of the hill. Four cannons from the Mayflower stood in place on the flat roof. Inside, on roughhewn log benches, the men sat on the left, the women on the right, as Elder Brewster preached “powerfully and profitable.”

One day an Indian walked into camp speaking English. “Welcome!” he said in a deep resonant voice. His name was Samoset, an Algonquin who had learned English from various fishing captains. The story he told gave the Pilgrims cause to thank God once again for His providence.

According to Samoset, this area had been the territory of the Patuxets, a large hostile tribe who had killed every white man who landed on these shores. Just four years prior to the Pilgrim’s landing a mysterious plague had devastated the entire tribe. Convinced that some great spirit had destroyed the Patuxets, neighboring tribes had shunned the entire area. So the cleared land on which the Pilgrims had settled actually belonged to no one. Their nearest neighbors, explained Samoset, were the Wampanoags some fifty miles to the southwest. These Indians numbered about sixty warriors, and Massasoit, their chief, also ruled over several other tribes.

Samoset returned to Plymouth the following week with another English-speaking Indian named Squanto. Squanto and Samoset soon arranged a meeting between Massasoit and the Pilgrims. From this meeting came a peace treaty which would last forty years.

In October of 1621 Governor Bradford declared a day of public thanksgiving. From their gardens, the Pilgrims could now enjoy turnips, cabbages, carrots, onions, parsnips, cucumbers, radishes, and beets. They invited Massasoit, who arrived not only with ninety hungry Indians, but also with several dressed deer with wild turkeys. They taught the Pilgrim women how to make hoecakes and pudding from cornmeal and how to make maple syrup. The Pilgrims used the Indians’ dried fruits to introduce them to blueberry and apple pies. All enjoyed the games that followed. It was a joyous occasion indeed

in my day you didnt hafta go on a field trip if your parents objected.

STAY THE FUCK HOME.

or go sit in the school library or another class if your folks have no sitter.
 Quoting: Phennommennonn


My atheist parents yanked me out of religion class when I was 7 years old. For the next two years (religion was only compulsory up to Grade 4), I used to sit in empty classrooms by myself when the other kids were learning religion. But Christians should rejoice here, because the atheist upbringing backfired; I was born again at age 36. My parents are completely flummoxed over my conversion and keep asking themselves what they did wrong to bring about such an outcome.

I believe that being raised as an atheist is the best foundation for becoming a Christian later in life, though if someone had told me that when I was still an atheist, I would have spun my head around a few times and spewed green soup at them.

in my day you didnt hafta go on a field trip if your parents objected.

STAY THE FUCK HOME.

or go sit in the school library or another class if your folks have no sitter.
 Quoting: Phennommennonn


My atheist parents yanked me out of religion class when I was 7 years old. For the next two years (religion was only compulsory up to Grade 4), I used to sit in empty classrooms by myself when the other kids were learning religion. But Christians should rejoice here, because the atheist upbringing backfired; I was born again at age 36. My parents are completely flummoxed over my conversion and keep asking themselves what they did wrong to bring about such an outcome.

I believe that being raised as an atheist is the best foundation for becoming a Christian later in life, though if someone had told me that when I was still an atheist, I would have spun my head around a few times and spewed green soup at them.

My church and I know several other's do for people all year long, they have no need to brag, they are the silent majority that needs no accolades, I told you, because you seem to think the Church is a Holiday Thingy....

Amerika is a secular nation; that's the beauty of it all....Separation of Church and State....but, most people are ignorant of why the Founder's created an atheistic state...it's simple: in England you could not Will property; be a civil servant (work for the state); deed nor own real property; nor vote in any election UNLESS you were a member of the Anglican Church (Church of England)...further, you could not prefer/file suits at law UNLESS you tithed to the Anglican Church....IF this country had a majority of Muslim leaders; then you would see shrines to Islam on the Courthouse Square and in your schools...would that be fine with you....? This entire thread only appeals to the lowest common denominator...the ignorant...
