Quote# 46400

Do you think it would make a difference if Christianity was taught in schools?


And as a devouted Christian would you like that even though it violates separation of church and state?

Answer :
Did you notice how our schools went down hill so fast after they took prayer out of schools. Did you notice that after 911 that even George W. Bush told people to pray in the schools even though it was unconstitutional. Christianity should be taught in schools even if it violates seperation of church and states. These laws are what you call "unrighteous" laws which stem from a devilish wisdom. The laws of love, justice, and mercy are "higher" than goverment laws, therefore they take precedence over any man-made law. There was a story in the Old Testement about Elijah the Prophet who was being mocked by the children of a certain village. Elijah called down a curse on the children and 2 bears came out of the woods and mauled the children. Do you know why that happened? Because the parents did not teach their children about God nor to reverence Him or His prophet. As a result of not teaching them God's ways the children suffer the wrath of God.

Prayer has not been taken out of schools. And the wrath of God frequently falls on children. It's no big deal.

Did you read about Goldilocks? There were bears, and a lot less death involved. And how were these kids to know he was a prophet? Sounds like a sick and twisted fairy tale to me.

Drinking game time!

Take a shot when:

-A natural disaster is explained as "punishment for sinful behavior."

-A Yahoo! Answers user tries to discredit evolution

-America's failure in Iraq is blamed on our acceptance of homosexuality, pagans, atheists, Satanists, improved medical insurance, "Communism," or liberals in general.

-Someone refers to prayer in schools.

We may never sober up, but with people like this roaming the earth, do we really want to?

The bit about "love, justice, and mercy" coupled with the story of Elijah and the bears just made my head spin.

Children are being children, so instead of chastising them, your god mauls them to death with a ton of fur teeth and claws. Your god is a cock, and I want nothing to do with him.

Actually...a case could be made that things went to shit once we added "under god" to the pledge and made "in god we trust" our national motto.

Just sayin'.

Allegory for Jesus

"Did you notice how our schools went down hill so fast after they took prayer out of schools."

No. I did not notice, and the going down hill part probably has more to do with the economy. Unless you are talking about school shootings, in which case...focus on something a little more statistically relevant.

"that even George W. Bush told people to pray in the schools even though it was unconstitutional."

GASP. Bush doing something unconstitutional? Bush telling people to pray? That atheistic, law-abiding George W. Bush? Couldn't be...

"Christianity should be taught in schools even if it violates seperation of church and states"

Scientologists, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, Shintos, Wiccans, Taoists and animists feel the same way about their religions.

""unrighteous" laws which stem from a devilish wisdom."

Funny how most Old Testament laws would probably qualify as "unrighteous laws" from a modern perspective...even your own.

"laws of love, justice, and mercy are "higher" than goverment laws, therefore they take precedence over any man-made law."

Love, justice, and mercy are either unaffected by government law, or fundamental aspects of it (at least for states with gay marriage and without the death penalty...).

"And they were all eaten by bears because they insulted an old man who had psychic connections to the invisible guy that made us all from dust. Which is why we need prayer in schools. The end."

Sounds like you're thinking of commiting treason. I hop you're not from the south. They'd lynch you faster than the KKK lynches a black man in the 1920s.

Should other religions also be taught in schools regardless of whether doing so would violate separation of church and state?

No?

Thought not.

So if i don't respect God, I'm going to mock some old man, then he's going to sic God on me?

That seems really inefficient.

Love? Justice? Mercy? Funny, that story and your theory about what God is doing right now contains none of the above. Especially since a lot of the victims in question are Christian who I guess aren't safe unless they're praying all day, every day.

Detrs: Heh, I never thought of that. I hereby present you with the internet that you've just won.

Here are my answers as a sane Christain:

Do you think it would make a difference if Christianity was taught in schools?

<Not at all. It is up to parents to teach their children about religion, not the schools. Schools teach, not preach.>

And as a devouted Christian would you like that even though it violates separation of church and state?

<I would not like it. It even says in the Bible to reder unto Ceaser what is Ceaser's. Schools are Ceaser's.

The Dragon has spoken.>

An old man was mocked by CHILDREN and he calls down his god's wrath on them? And his god sends two bears to murder the children to save an old man's vanity? And the old man is the good guy, right?

Do you really not see what's wrong with this scenario?

Go peddle your manure somewhere else, you sick fuck.

I thought it happened because Elijah was a murderous jackass and your 'kind and loving' god is a genocidal maniac who delights in pain and suffering?

Wasn't the bloke with the bears called Elisha? It's possible it's both - these blokes seemed to often have more than one name, but I'm pretty sure it's Elisha, not Elijah...

There was a story in the Old Testement about Elijah the Prophet who was being mocked by the children of a certain village. Elijah called down a curse on the children and 2 bears came out of the woods and mauled the children. Do you know why that happened?

Because the God you worship is petty and spiteful?

"Do you know why that happened? Because the parents did not teach their children about God nor to reverence Him or His prophet."

Yes, so instead of educating the children, your god sent two wild animals after them in order to harm them. Bravo. Education at its finest. And you wonder why people don't want your whack religion in their schools?

not completely useless

"devilish wisdom" -- good phrase, I like it.

Reminds me of the old joke "if it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all". If it weren't for devilish wisdom, there'd be no wisdom at all.

then explain why education improved vastly under Clinton!

Did you notice how our schools went down hill so fast after they took prayer out of schools.

Did you notice only fundies put these two together?

Did you notice that after 911 that even George W. Bush told people to pray in the schools even though it was unconstitutional.

Bush did a lot of unconstitutional shit.
