**THE NEW SCHOOL PRAYER
This was written by a teen in Bagdad, Arizona. This is incredible!
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God’s name is prohibited by the state.
We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King.
It’s “inappropriate” to teach right from wrong,
We’re taught that such “judgments” do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It’s scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school’s a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
What is your stand on separation of church of state? Do you believe it is needed for a democracy? Must the 10 commandments be taken out of court?
I believe it is good but not strict separation. It is good because the government must treat each religion equally. It is to protect the rights of every American. But that’s where it stops. I don’t believe having the 10 commandments in court hurts any one. I don’t thing the word GOD hurts the rights of an atheist. I don’t believe a little boy reading his bible at recess will disturb people. Left wing Groups like the ACLU are turning separation of church and state into total separation]. Which is not what the founding fathers wanted. READ THIS!!!TMyth of separation of church **
