It's an important cause simply because we are Americans who are suppose to have the freedom of religion. What is this country teaching our children but banning their "human rights"?

Eddie,
First let me clear one thing up and then I will discuss this cause. I never mentioned anything about OUR “founding fathers” but since you did….let me tell you a little of what I also know about our “founding fathers” ALL TOO WELL……There is a law in Stafford County that on Sundays at 4pm, a man is allowed to take his wife to the county steps and beat the crap out of her. That law was also put into effect by our “founding fathers”. Now this law is still technically on the books making...

Eddie,
First let me clear one thing up and then I will discuss this cause. I never mentioned anything about OUR “founding fathers” but since you did….let me tell you a little of what I also know about our “founding fathers” ALL TOO WELL……There is a law in Stafford County that on Sundays at 4pm, a man is allowed to take his wife to the county steps and beat the crap out of her. That law was also put into effect by our “founding fathers”. Now this law is still technically on the books making it legal. Now, I can guarantee you that there is some crooked lawyer who would use this law to defend that man and could very easily make it so that man is set free while the woman lay beaten in a hospital or worse….DEAD as her child is left motherless because of OUR “founding fathers” laws. Then, guess what, that child ends up in that man’s custody…..so who do you think is next for him to start beating??

Eddie, my friend, you cannot have it both ways…you can’t pick and choose like that…if you do chose to preach about our “founding fathers” views on religion, then, you must also take the above fore mentioned law and preach it as well. Trust me, we don’t want to get into domestic violence with me but my point is that your research into when this country was founded is pretty one-sided and really has nothing to do with my point about this cause at all.

I will give you an example (current times) that I hope will clear up your interpretation of my point. You and I didn’t attend Stafford at the same time, but I am going to assume that since you are good friends with Tony, that you may have played some sports in school. Just go with me here if you didn’t. So, as you and other guys were allowed to get together and practice, get together and hang out, dress up all nice and neat on game days and have that all too familiar “whoop up on the competition” speech by the coach to get you all pumped up and ready to go out there on the field and give it all you guys had. These were your rights & privileges Eddie…and that is perfectly okay with me; I have absolutely no problem with that “group” gathering. But, you know what, my son, is disabled (as you are aware) and he, Eddie, will never be able to play sports in high school. So, what you do we do with the children who either aren’t capable of high school sports or who just aren’t interested in that? Did you and Tony “shove” your meetings down others’ throats and make them attend football, wrestling, or track events?? No, of course you didn’t.

All I want is for children who wish to meet together to have prayer, have afterschool meetings where they can do the same as you and Tony did with sports which is the freedom to form a group and not be persecuted for it. It is the very same thing. Hear me when I say, I do NOT believe in making any child say prayer over meals, or forcing a child to listen to any part of the Bible, or forcing any child to attend any meeting where such activity is being held. Now, I was not a “sports” girl yet I was FORCED to attend pep rally’s during school.

You mention school being a “public place” and therefore; that somehow that is a reason to not allow kids who wish to, get together and pray. I pay taxes too Eddie so that point holds no water either. I am not sitting here saying “because I pay taxes” kids should be allowed to pray in school. It is just not relevant to my point at all which is why I didn’t speak of “public place and being a taxpayer” nor did I speak of “founding fathers laws” because, honestly, this is not a forum for that. This is about ALL children having the same privilege and to be free to meet each other before or after school to participate in what they believe and/or are interested in. No different than you and Tony playing football together. As he just got home (he said he will give you a call in a bit) he said you and he met when he broke your arm playing football…..the irony!! LOL!! I had never heard that story before but just to attempt to get where I am personally coming from…..what if you and Tony weren’t allowed to play football??? Would you take my reasons about “founding fathers” or “public places” or “paying taxes” as good enough reasons to keep you from participating in something you enjoyed.??

I realize you will come back to me with more of your opinion, which is completely fine, as we both are proud Americans and therefore; are entitled to our opinions. That IS our RIGHT!! And I say “Amen” to that….you can say whatever you’d like to that….but in the end, we both are Americans and proud to be one. But, honestly Eddie, there are hundreds and hundreds of men and women who have fought and died or been permanently disabled SO you and I can have this conversation. Eddie, I KNOW at least some of those people who died for us were Christian…..so I chose not to demean them and the ultimate price they paid by viewing this issue as you do…I will end on a quote I hope we can agree on which is….”We can just agree to disagree”.

Regards,
Holley

I can still remember my teacher reading a Bible verse before we would start class every morning. I can still see Mrs. Evorie Ward's old black worn Bible......no sight more beautiful than a worn Bible.....well used! Our world has changed so much since I was a young girl and I am only 43 years old! Without God I shudder to think how it will be when my youngest (8 years old) is the age I am now! Please put God back in our schools and our nation!

I think when they took prayer out of schools. Schools have gone downhill every since the reason I say this is bacause we have more kids in trouble in school and out of school. There is alot of kids that don't have god in their lifes so they turn to gangs just trying to fit in. I blame alot of parents for this also for not trying to change the way some kids growup.

I think they would be alot better off.

God is life. How can you take HIM out. HE is here no matter what somebody says or does. Trying to control who you can't infringes my rights. How can those who don't believe get their rights and I don't?!

Without God what do we have.....one huge mess which is where our country is headed if they do not turn back and remember that we are a country founded on "In God We Trust".
