A little more 'holiday spirit.'

Signs of the times, I suppose: Christians in government and public schools don't approve of a kid's religion, they work in other kinds of xenophobia, too...

That is absolutely insane. What a way to treat a child. All due to bigoted narrow minded (in this case) christian viewpoints.
Religion mixed with school up here is a serious no-no. Even the Catholic School board has to live by the rules (many non-Catholics will send their kids to what they perceive to be a better school in the catholic board )
Whatever happened to freedom of Religion (oh yeah as long as its christian religion)

Well, part of the problem is that a lot of people who claim it's 'Freedom of religion' to *do * stuff like that... including to do the same thing to lots of others, Are presently running for or in office.


It's actually not that unusual, you just don't usually get a web link with it.

Just one more example of why I cast off Christianity. I have no problem whatsoever with anyone believing or disbelieving whatever they want... God/Gods/No God(s)... Have at it. But any individual's right to believe stops at the surface of their skin. Everyone is free to explain their beliefs and to make a case for them, however, no one has a right to tell anyone else how or what they must believe or disbelieve. Thing is, Christians, particularly the religious right (aka the "American Taliban") take it as a holy mission to belittle and denigrate every other belief system at every opportunity. Sadly, after they are done bullying some poor lost soul, they go home, get drunk, cruise porn on the internet, beat their children or sneak off with the deacon's wife. One "heartfelt" cry and prayer later and they assume they are right with god... then do it again... lather, rinse, repeat... The hypocrisy finally grew too much!

The principle, teachers and bus driver (as well as any other staff involved in these incidents) should be fired!!! Not for expressing their religious views, to which they are entitled, but for trying to use their "positions of power" to influence the religious choices of this child and his mother/family.
