Of course nobody is authorizing forcing kids to listen to Christian teachings, but it doesn't appear to be quite the case that Rex wants it to be.




Alright well I'll wait for all the facts to fully emerge, but from this non-Rex source, students were not allowed to leave. LINK

Of course, there may be more to the story (and likely is). So I'll wait and see.

I see it as both being right. It was intended to both keep government our of religion's business as well as keep government out of the Theocratic business.

That could quite easily be a safety issue. I remember in HS, once you were at a pep rally for instance, you weren't allowed to leave either.

There's definitely an inherent tension there.

They attended a voluntary assembly. The class period had already begun. Where they supposed to go?



I can guarantee, if this was a voluntary assembly that was offensive to anyone of any faith, then the argument would be the teachers and staff were "blocking" the exits to enforce school policy and ensure safety.

I went to a "forced" chapel service once a week from 5th grade until I graduated high school and I promise you Rex I got a much better education than majority of the public schools in the country. Oh and I am able to freely think for myself.

So making kids believe that they will burn in hell for eternity if they don't follow some made-up god's insane moral laws isn't hurting them?

Liberal unions pushed for tenure laws that make this basically impossible.

Are you? Is Jesus your savior? If you answer yes it proves you're mistaken. Jesus is nonsense. You're brainwashed.

You're certainly entitled to your opinion no matter how closed-minded it may be.

re: Mississippi public school forces students to listen to Jesus lecture
This much we can know beyond a reasonable doubt: the principal and the school board are LYING when they say the assemblies were "student-initiated".

Did YOU have the power to impel your principal to conduct assemblies for all students at all grade levels? What happened, instead, IN ALL LIKELIHOOD is that the principal and his cohorts wanted this type of assembly and used students as foils. That's not truly "student-initiated" and it's illegal, anyway.

Yes. This happened quite often at my school. Any club could put together an assembly if they wanted.

Edit: Any thinking person would have just set up an assembly of their own purporting atheism. If the school didn't allow it there might be a case here. Good luck convincing a judge the school should let students just wander around aimlessly.

This should definitely happen with clear cases like the one in WV where the teacher violated the student's free speech rights by making him turn his NRA shirt inside out.

The test was whether or not the shirt was a disruption. A public school student does not have any right to speech that is disruptive to the mission of the school.

Damn, you sure do think highly of your own opinion, don't you. I've read the whole thread, mostly because y'all are entertaining, and this is the only truth I have stumbled upon in 6 pages of argument.

Good for you, don't let anyone else's opinions effect your own. I don't agree with any of them, but I like your hard headedness. No need for discussion once your gunshot opinion is formulated.

Damn strong convictions Rex. Damn strong

Religious freedom is being killed in Mississippi. It has been for a few years now. And Christian fundamentalism is the murderer.

You know howa practicing Christianity kills religious freedom and all
quote:

Mississippi is ground zero for religious anti-abortion fanatics. They’ve literally nearly outlawed abortion in the state in an effort to strip women of their reproductive rights.

Well thatsa certainly an unbiased totally legitimate way to view thea outlaw of child-murder
quote:

Mississippi is also the state where Republicans passed a law forcing public schools to give students an open forum to push their religious views onto others, something that mostly favors Christian students.

Thisa site even spins freedom of speech as a bad thing?

What kind of left wing ultraliberal lunatic site did you link?

That was justa the first few sentences. I shutter to think what else i am going to read.
