Did everyone forget about our Constitution and how you cannot do this and by the way separation of church and state and per our four fathers there is a reason they made that! http://freethought.mbdojo.com/foundingfathers.html
Apparently they have never heard of the Constitution.
I dont live in the US though but the principles and ideas on which that nation stand by is what gives me the love to share and sign petitions that comes my way on this site. I will always stand by the truth and what i see as pure black and white. This is the reason why am standing side by side with the cause of the American people and their collective wish as a nation.
My Lord God saved my pitiful life.Think of what he can do for our children and us.Our country must not ignore his power for love peace of mind and joy.We all can live this kind of life. We must keeep him in all our daily lives. What is there to lose? Hate, resentment, overwhelming sorrow? We need his guidence and acceptence for not only our schools but in our country and this earth.
God Bless America In Jesus mighty name.

Sadly, it is not just people from other countries wanting this travesty to take place. It is also the ACLU and the atheists.
??? What people and from what country are you talking about???

We need a petitition to stop our govt. from giving "our" tax money, in the form of grants, to the immigrants.
What about giving tax breaks to the obscenely wealthy?
Ofcourse I am against that. That's a no brainer...
Don't forget the billions in tax breaks for churches.
We need to restart Operation WET BACK. Pick up all Illegals and ship them home double up on the borders and stop them from coming here illegally.
If the thugs that be dosen't like our way of life, our flag &God included on our money& the pledge pf alligence, then they should go back to KENYA or where ever. I WILL FOREVER KEEP GOD ALMIGHTY AS MY LORD & SAVIOR & ETERNAL KING. MAY GOD BLESS ALL.
Look these quotes up. From our forefathers:
"Religious controversies are always productive of more acrimony and irreconcilable hatreds than those which spring from any other cause. Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by the difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought most to be depreciated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least...
"Religious controversies are always productive of more acrimony and irreconcilable hatreds than those which spring from any other cause. Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by the difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought most to be depreciated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society." - George Washington.
"We discover in the gospels a groundwork of vulgar ignorance, of things impossible, of superstition, fanaticism and fabrication." - Thomas Jefferson.
"On the dogmas of re
ligion, as distinguished from moral principles, all mankind, from the beginning of the world to this day, have been quarreling, fighting, burning and torturing one another, for abstractions unintelligible to themselves and to all others, and absolutely beyond the comprehension of the human mind." - Thomas Jefferson.
"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purpose." - Thomas Jefferson.
"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. - Thomas Jefferson.
"As I understand the Christian religion, it was, and is, a revelation. But how has it happened that millions of fables, tales, legends, have been blended with both Jewish and Christian revelation that have made them the most bloody religion that ever existed?" - John Adams.
"I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved-- the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced!" - John Adams.
"The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the Gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths, Doctrines, and whole cartloads of other foolish trumpery that we find in Christianity." - John Adams (our second president).
My personal favorite: "The question before the human race is, whether the God of Nature shall govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule it by fictitious miracles?" - John Adams.
"I think vital religion has always suffered when orthodoxy is more regarded than virtue. The scriptures assure me that at the last day we shall not be examined on what we thought but what we did." - Benjamin Franklin AMEN TO THIS!
"Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst." - Thomas Paine.
"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half of the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind." - Thomas Paine.
"Take away from Genesis the belief that Moses was the author, on which only the strange belief that it is the word of God has stood, and there remains nothing of Genesis but an anonymous book of stories, fables, and traditionary or invented absurdities, or of downright lies." - Thomas Paine.
"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise." - James Madison.
"The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries." - James Madison.
Get a life Brett
This is the most racist comment I've seen yet. You do realize it was the Christians colonizing Africa and trading them as commerce, bringing them to America as slaves, right? If you want to blame someone for African American presence in the US, blame the Christians. Perhaps if history were better taught, and perhaps if people weren't so conditioned to be complacent with their ignorance, this community might actually be better off.
God bless u all
Why would I support superstition in the schools? An education should involve only those subjects supported by empirical evidence. Which god do you mean? Zeus, Jupiter, Thor, Mithra, Allah, Yahweh, or Santa? We had a 1000 years of theocracies in government. It was called The Dark Ages for a reason. Shall we also burn scientists at the stake because that's what theocracies gave us. If you wish to remain ignorant and superstitious, fine. Just don't pass your myths and superstitions off as fact in a school setting.
you'll find out after you die. where you will know. every knee shall bow and every tongue confess JESUS is LORD to the glory of the FATHER.
God is always the SUPREME, whether people like it or not.
Ed - Your an ignorant fool. Atheism is not what advanced our civilization nor has it played a prominent role in science. Every major discovery about our natural world was advanced by a man of God. It was the people's religion that ended the Dark Ages. The Roman Empire accepted Jesus as savior and gave up their many deities. These things must be taught in schools everywhere. Learn the difference between superstition and religion as our children should.
Ed you look old enough to realize what's taken place since they started removing God from schools. Do honestly think our world is better off?
Ed. I would much rather keep a faith in God that I believe holds me accountable for my actions in the end then live my life without the hope of seeing a better world. Besides when I die and there is no God what have I lost? When you die and there is a God what have you lost? That's to big a gamble for me. You like to gamble?
YOU TELL UM, PAT KING, and amen
Glad to see someone who understands that religion is nothing more then myth and superstition. Love the flag and that it stands for separation of church and state. You want a state run by religion try Iran.
@Ron Kranz your ignorant comment gave me cancer. Saying that men of god are the only ones that move us forward is the most ignorant thing. I'm not saying that there haven't been christains that have advanced us in life; but you can't really believe that it has only been christains can you? Religion, for the most part, teaches us to be to be intolerant. Not the Religion itself, but the ones who preach it. I for one full agree with Ed. If religion is to me in school what religion should it be?...

There's only what works for you.
ur fucked in the head asshole
I support the petition. I would rather sit with you over coffee and discuss it than sit with a fool with explosives wrapped around his body. I will die a Christian and spend eternity with my God and Savior Jesus Christ.
Maybe this this world would be a better place if more people had God in their lives.
That's the simple truth.
So says the Jewish person who doesn't even realize God loves him. You are His people. You will never learn, will you? Ignorant. Yet blessed. Who 'am to judge. Good luck. I'll make sure I block you!
