Thanks, Howard for the quote. It sums it up quite nicely. The new religion of humanism is allowed to be preached at my children with my dollars going to pay for it. If one religion is stopped in public school, all should.
Flagman, I'm not looking for corporate public prayer, much for the reason you state -- I don't want somebody making up a prayer for my children. However to deny Christianity or Judaism or Islam or Hinduism in favor of Humanism is out and out hypocrisy.
As far as religion being a crutch or many of your other objections, I can't offer you anything in opposition. I wouldn't dare force my beliefs upon you. I've talked to people making statements like that often. Nothing I say will make a difference to you if you don't want to hear it. That's fine.
I'm no better than you. I won't go to heaven by being good. My trust is in Jesus Christ and His promises. Many have mistaken ideas about who God is. 18 or so of them took over 4 airplanes on Tuesday. God didn't stop that from happening. But he is helping many this week who look to Him. I've talked to many of them.</STRONG>
