Seriously, the law is on your side.
And semi-seriously, do you really wish to seek political and religious asylum in another nation because of such persecutions?
How did people figure out you aren't saying under God? You can also easily avoided persecution by murmuring something else other than God if that is so important to you... or if it's really that important to you, just got to detention everyday for that. That's certain what I'd do if I feel like they're forcing me to say one nation under Satan! I'd gladly sit at detention everyday... but most importantly, I think I'd fight this using our nation's constitution when I'm an adult.
I don't think this is happening today? I guess I'll find out when my daughter goes to school.

CA student will soon learn MORE LGBT history in schools. Not that I have anything against learning about LGBT struggles over the years, but imagine Christians asking for MORE Christian history in school? Imagine the outrage.
Also, we may learn that Dr. King was a Christian preacher, but surely the history books will never add anymore christian influences than that. As if God can only influence Americans to ruin lives... such as prevent same sex marriages and slavery or manifest destiny..., but God can't really influence folks to fight for justice. God had nothing to do with the civil rights movements. Anything bad we can blame the Christians and their bogus God, anything good, we down play the significance of their faith.

Keith put it better than I would:
It reminds me of someone's opinion I was reading not too long ago, that the only people discriminated against now are straight white males. It's hard to argue that when, for instance, all but one president of this country was a straight white male, and the other one was still a straight male.Originally Posted by Kchrpm
Don't get me wrong, I'm not crying victim here. It is just the way it is. I fully understand. No hard feelings from me.
Nothing against that, but it probably should be more of a college level course... rather than cramming our kids with all kinds of FSM's...Yes, that's exactly what should or at least could happen, except there's not necessarily a need to adopt any of them. We're taught about multiple types of artistic movements and musical movements, why not be taught multiple types of religious movements? It's not about saying that any of them are right or wrong, just that they existed as part of the tapestry of human history.
Yes, very simple for a computer, either 0 or 1. Or as Swervo always tend to think of me as either black or white and nothing in between.Either forbid them all or allow them all. Pretty simple IMO.
Unfortunately real world is rarely this simple.
Yeah, of course, unless you think minority rule is better? Actually we have that now too. Trump won 48% of the votes and he still get to rule. Yipee!This has been said by those in the ruling/majority class for likely the history of human society.
Either way, the losing side just need to learn to chill and try to make the best of it.
I agree. I can understand things won't be perfect at first. I'm not going to protest like some Christians do about our textbooks to have MORE LGBT history, but I do hate the reality that most Californians hate Jesus. Still, I'm still chill.It does not. The influences of all people from all categories should be included, positive and negative. Most likely it will not be done perfectly at first, people will overcorrect as they aim for the proper balance, but the frequency and amplitude of the sine wave will continue to shrink until we are nearly there. We shouldn't just give up trying because we aren't there yet.
If Jesus is indeed the absolutely Truth that he claims he is, he doesn't need me to defend him. No matter how people crucify him, he will remain what he is... supposedly forever and ever.
I did read a good portion of the bible for AP Lit in high school. I remember my Spanish teacher was pretty religious too, as was my drama teacher.
