So librul ... in your mind, the world can't become a better place until your beliefs are successfully forced onto everyone else? And with your supposed supremacy and downward view of anyone who believes in a supreme creator.. why can't you just ignore these "Christian zealots", let them have their own beliefs. Since you and your beliefs (according to your attitudes presented in your diatribe) seem to place you in such a high place, far above all who disagree with you, can't you just ignore the peasants below you in your selfish kingdom. You are so much better than those who believe, you should be able to look above the "broken record" you hear being spewed and let everyone in this country have their own beliefs without being subjected to such vile criticism.
The liberal 'politically correct' movement in the country isn't just trying to let everyone and their belief system live in conjunction with one another. It's motivated by extreme views, such as the one you've posted, in an effort to force your beliefs on the rest of the nation and remove the rights of the majority, whether right or wrong, just because you interpret the laws in a way that allows you to do so. This, my friend is much more arrogant than any Christian views I have seen.
Congrats Donna Jackson... You were successful in your endeavor. There was no inspirational message on the cheerleader banner. They even took your 'friendly suggestion' one step further and didn't let a student lead a prayer over the loudspeaker. I even got to see a religious banner that a parent brought get torn down the middle. I'm sure you and your god are happy now.

Wtg suzy...you can cut and paste your previous post. Why don't you also paste the part where you state the Bible is a bunch of fairy tales. I'm glad you have the right to believe what you want and I won't complain about it. On the flipside, you shouldn't complain about other people's beliefs either. No one has ever been hurt looking at a sign.
I think it's funny that Donna Jackson used her company signature on her emails. I wonder if Paradyne Consulting is endorsing her meddling? I can't believe she is lying to everyone, saying that she's not wanting it banned. Why would she be requesting receipts from the school detailing purchase of paper, tape... etc to make the signs? ... and she's doing this with an official request through the FOIA ... Freedom of Information Act ... She has an agenda, and it's not just a friendly suggestion from her law class.
I guess she didn't realize her emails with her email address, phone number, cell phone and all became public property through the FOIA too... it's all been published in the letters released through the school ... lol... duh... WTG Donna. I wonder how many folks have contacted her company at www.paradyneconsulting.com ?
Thank you suzy. You made my point.
suzypublic ... I'll play your silly game.
Show me a message from one the banners that you and your children deemed offensive and tell me why the message is detrimental to your beliefs.
I can't believe how many anti-Christian hate mongers there are in this town.
cave_demon, I guess with your logic, you're empowered to run people off the public roads if they have a religious car tag since your tax dollars are paying for the road and you don't want them to push their religious beliefs in your face? Get a life dude (or dudette).
Show me how many people were hurt by the signs that were held up during the last 6 football seasons... show me the people that had their life turned upside down because one of these signs pushed 'asinine' thoughts into their head ... just show me 1.
It's totally unfair for you to categorize Christians as being ignorant. Your statements show you to be more ignorant and more narrow minded than most people that comment on this board. Learn to live and let live. I can live with your ignorant remarks and name calling because I know there are people like you in this world with tiny brains. You, my friend, need to learn to live with people around you that have differing opinions and beliefs without forcing your ungodly behavior on them... it cuts both ways.
And btw, have you even seen any of the messages that were on these signs? ... show me 1 that sent a message against higher moral values. Maybe you need to educate yourself a little more and speak with a little more positive message yourself.
theDave ... you're correct, there is no indoctrination happening in that school lesson, nor is there any indoctrination happening with the cheerleader's banner. I
sueplappy... I agree, they are teaching about a lot of religions, but I don't see anyting about satanism.. that could offend someone because it's not there. In an effort to separate church and state to keep from offending anyone, maybe you should be pushing to have it ALL taken out of public schools. While you're at it, have chaplain's removed from the military and public service, burn your money because it says 'In God We Trust', heck... I bet you drive down public roads and see signs belonging to churches... maybe you should push your agenda forward and have those signs moved away from public roads. A lot of churches display signage on their property stating who they are and what they believe... these signs are close to public roads and can be seen by those who pass and may be offended.. have them take them down and disallow any indication of religion to be seen... doesn't it offend you to see this stuff on a public street? People wear pendants with crosses on them in public, have a law written to forbid this. There are Christian book stores, music stores, concerts and events on public grounds and venues that receive state money... have it all stopped. Christian music is broadcast on public airwaves governed by the FCC, a government agency, have them closed.
If you're going to target religion in the government, or public places, target all of it. Don't single one thing out.
Whomever called us the 'United States of the Offended' was certainly right... the silent majority is being ran over by the vocal minority... just to be policitally correct.
What are you liberal minded, anti Christian, pro choice, constitutional know-it-all, 'get your religion out of our school' zealots doing to keep Islam out of public schools?
In California, 7th graders are required to learn about the Muslim faith in their Social Studies classroom... note that I said 'required'. you can go to the California educational website and see... here is what they are being required to learn as part of their studies:
This is being taught in public schools and is much more of an endorsment of a religion than cheerleaders holding up signs.... but,... I guess it's ok to promote Islam... better keep those Christian values out of the system though. Spare your breath with your lopsided, feined offended talk against Bible verses and steer your lost anger toward some real issues. State endorsment and required teaching of any religion may be against the law, but what these cheerleaders are doing is nothing close to that.... go fight a real fight, if you are so compelled to do so... and leave the girls alone.
