They asked for it. This is what Christians get when they let church’s visit the school and try to sell religion to kids. I bet xtians are really going to love it when they get a school principle that invites a Sunni Imam to the school to talk to kids about Allah.
The Supreme Court, by a vote of 8-1, held in Westside Community Schools v. Mergens (1990) that the Equal Access Act is constitutional. These guidelines are designed to help school board members, administrators, teachers, parents, religious leaders and students understand and conform to the act.
The name of the act explains its essential thrust. There are three basic concepts.
The first is nondiscrimination. If a public secondary school permits student groups to meet for student-initiated activities not directly related to the school curriculum, then it is required to treat all such student groups equally. This means the school cannot discriminate against any students conducting such meetings “on the basis of the religious, political, philosophical, or other content of the speech at such meetings.” This language was used to make clear that religious speech was to receive equal treatment, not preferred treatment.
I was eating lunch in a sandwich place a few weeks ago and a guy walked in with not one but two Kirpans on his belt. Looked really strange and it almost freaked out some of the other patrons. (This is California where carrying weapons of any kind in public is not common).
I wonder how long until someone claims that carrying an AR-15 is part of their religion, and hence must be accommodated?
It would be funny if the Temple of Satan started buying property right next to or facing the front of a public school so they could put statues of Baphomet for all of the parents to see when they take their kids to school lmao. I can see it now, the xtians would be throwing a bitch fit about it and it is a hilarious thought.
Oh most certainly not, considering our governor race was between a jewish candidate on the left and an evangelical election denying wack job on the right. Fortunately we favored far away from the evangelical nutter.
I was shocked to listen to Shapiro in his inauguration speech specifically point out defending the right to a lack of religion, even though he considers himself religious. Surprised also not to hear more backlash on that comment with the religious zealots we have here.
If you didn’t know and have not visited the US it would seem to be as religiously fanatical, educationally deprived and, yes, callous, narrow minded, violently savage and bigoted as Afghanistan. But enough about Cog…
Seriously the vast majority of the US people I found were kind and generous, sure, some were to a European/Aussie absolutely cooky but on the whole goodhearted people, with the police so damn polite even when arresting you!.
Trumpo of course is the exception, as he is to everything, except a Salvador Dali painting.
Sky ‘News’, of course is a festering sore like all the Murdochrity worldwide.
I do find unfathomable that after all the massacres of innocents that seem to happen every single day that the parents haven’t risen en masse (which happened in Australia and the UK after only one such incident each) and DEMANDED the federal regulation of semi automatic weapons as a bare minimum.
Un fucking fathomable.
