FFRF Legal Fellow Madeline Ziegler discusses how bible classes in public schools create the illusion of being secular despite obvious religious elements.
We’ll reblog today, via Patheos Blogs and the Friendly Atheist, a post that relates to our recent NFL Prayer Participation post regarding the nonsense of subjecting one’s entire secular [public] audience to what should be personal prayer.
It stands to [insanely] reason that a Christian group is considering costing the public education system even more money than it already has by dragging another public school through a ridiculous legal battle in the name of a prayer that could be done anywhere else and at any time.
Make no mistake; evangelical religion wants to force itself upon all people.
Sharing a stranger’s personal story of conversion to atheism, with this question in mind:
How do those who convert to atheism, from [any] religion in which they were raised, feel about the idea (of some religious proponents) that there should be NO separation of church and state?
The American public, for example, isn’t accustomed to the new politicized evangelism which seems to be gaining such ground (is, due to generous gifts from religiously biased donors) but is in fact a facade to cover up for the growing percentage of Nones who are younger and yet younger; who will eventually demand the secular government they’ve grown to expect.
Still, the new evangelists are centered around a religion-government merger idea that threatens to challenge the very Constitution of the United States, having already caused quite a stir.
