High school students defy atheists, recite Lord's Prayer at graduation
I haven't read the article yet, but just the title kind of upset me. I'm posting it here before I read.

Yikes, that was a sickening article.

Quote:They (the students) were lining up to march when some of them began talking about that long time tradition – now outlawed.

Outlawed? It wasn't legal to begin with. Idiots.

Wow, screw this "journalist"!

Quote:Fearing a possible lawsuit, the district dropped the tradition – which seemed to appease the group of perpetually-offended atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers from Wisconsin. You can read more about these loathsome bullies in my best-selling book “God Less America.”
...
It appeared a cherished tradition would be eradicated to satisfy the bloodlust of a bunch of out-of-town bullies.
...
Meanwhile, back in Wisconsin those meddling menaces from the Freedom From Religion Foundation are muttering under the breath, “Curses, foiled again.”

You would think this was satire, but it's not.

But seriously, I HATE when the religious feel so entitled that they impose their ceremonies on the general population. I want to see these same people react to a united Muslim or Hindu prayer and then explain why it's okay for Christians but not for people of other faiths.

Yeah, I was thinking it had to be satire, but no! It's just Fox News.

This sounds like a job for THE CHURCH OF SATAN!!!!

They would probably tell you that the US is a Christian nation. Ya' know, the usual bullshit.

Yup. I think there should also be a satanic ritual, a Rabbi should have said a prayer, a muslim prayer to allah as well. An American Indian should have been able to evoke a mountain spirit and the pagans should have been able to do whatever pagans do. Christians live in a very self centered world. They have no respect for other religions and faiths so with Christians it's always about.... "me, ours, us, mine and I" but when it's about consideration for others they throw a huge hissy fit. Christianity is most selfish religion the world has ever seen.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
