Agnostic Student Punished for Omitting "Under God"
An agnostic student was given a low grade, and detention for omitting the phrase "under god" while leading his class in the pledge of allegiance.

Weapons grade facepalming ensued when I read the school's justification. How do you not see the hypocrisy of this statement??? Facepalm

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Try the irony. It's delicious.

There is a pernicious disease spreading in the brains of school administrators in this country. Like Ebola, it turns their brains to liquid. Unlike Ebola, it doesn't kill them.


Sadly.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

This is going into my argument paper for my final in English Comp I.

Anyway, another perfect example of persecution from religious people.

Seems like he should have been able to say it the way it was written...for historical purposes. He didn't say it incorrectly. He used the original version.

I think a lawyer could have a field day with this one.

No, it's the other way around.

The one agnostic was persecuting the entire school by omitting "under God." Dodgy

He's infringing on the schools rights to make him do what they desire.
