My rant on school prayer and the pledge.
I'm really tired of hearing Christians whine about not having prayer in school and that we want "under God" taken out of the pledge. "Under God" has only been there since 1954 - so we manage to win 2 world wars and get through the Great Depression without becoming communist or a dictorship without God's help, so there's no reason to have it now. How would you feel if it was "Under Allah" and there were readings from the Koran, or "Under Vishnu" and redings from Hindu texts, or "Under the Flying Spaghetti Monster" and reading pasta recipes? Not mentioning any god or having any prayer is neutrality, not promoting atheism. Promoting atheism would be "One nation intelligent enough to not believe in any gods" and reading from Atheist Univers or Losing Faith in Faith. Seems plenty of Christians are only happy when they can force their nonsense down everyone else's throat. Just like something out of 1984 - you say we oppress you when we don't let you oppress everyone else. We need to start following the constitution. You have plenty of time to kiss up to your invisible sky daddy at home and in church. Just leave the rest of us out of it!
