Thumbs down School Prayer Banishment was a Good Thing

The banishment of prayer in public schools in 1962 was a good thing for America.

It sounded the alert that folks ought to look in to what goes on in public schools.

And if folks become inquisitive enough, they'll discover exactly what the government schools are intended to do. Which goal, oddly enough, is not the intellectual training of children.

Our school structure and methods are modeled after the 17th century Prussian system, which was designed with the express purpose of producing loyal, patriotic, industrious, compliant, peer-oriented workers and soldiers that are incapable of questioning orders.

Our regimented school systems are NOT intended to impart sufficient critical thinking skills and knowledge to produce free-thinking individuals capable of logic and reason.

Our schools supplant logic and reason with emotion and animal instinct.

Prayer has never been banned in public school. Only teacher led prayer. Student led prayer is fine. If you think about it do you really want a teacher leading your child in prayer?

Does anyone believe Matthew 6:6 discourages public prayer?

OPs would take issue w/ prayers ending in the titles ... Baptists would take issue a teacher making the sign of a crucifix ...

No. Jesus prayed in public. And the book of Acts is full of public prayers.

Which was the Supreme Court's point when they banned teacher led prayer.

I'd take that over these teachers that cut Pentecostal girls' hair, or lead their students to "vote" an autistic boy out of the class, or seduce them, or use their classroom as a podium for their stunted radical immature college-years viewpoints.

2 of the 4 are criminal, one was just stupid, but the last one sadly seems to be encouraged.

3/4 examples seem to be hyperbolic since they are illegal. Most liberals, if not all, are against these things too.

I will agree that a liberal agenda has infiltrated the public school system ... however conservatives can change this.
