Daar word op die oomblik in die kerk meer gepraat oor self-ontplooiing as oor self-opoffering.-Anon.......As ‘n kerk haar woorde begin devalueer, dan word die kerk ‘n ramp vir die volk. - K Schilder

God-lose Amerikaanse skole

Geen godsdiens in Amerikaanse skole
Gediggie plaas wat deur 'n anonieme 15 jarige Amerikaanse kind geskryf is (jammer oor die Engels):

NEW SCHOOL PRAYER

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights..
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks..
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
Amen

Behoort godsdiensvryheid dan nie juis te beteken dat jy jou godsdiens kan beoefen nie? Vryheid van godsdiens is 'n ander saak. Lyk my die twee begrippe word aspris met mekaar verwar. Miskien moet ons begin om skole te monitor waar skeptisisme gepredik wrod want dit is niks anders as werwing vir skeptisisme as lewensbeskouing nie en die werwing van godsdienslede (van watter aard ookal)of die beinvloeding van kinders om an geloof te verander is streng verbode.

In vrede

Yf jy sê: "Lyk my die twee begrippe word aspris met mekaar verwar". Ek dink jy is heeltemal reg wat dit betref!
