Editor:

When I was a little child, the nuns used to come to Concho School for an hour a week to teach catechism to the Catholic children. Right there in the classroom. Somehow, this was deemed to be imposing religion on them. Someone or other put a stop to it.

In those days there were schools that started the day with a prayer. I never saw it, but I knew about it. I hear tell that has been abolished.

Now we are so “politically correct” that teachers get fired for keeping a Bible on their desk, and students get sent home for wearing religious motifs on their T-shirts. This is supposedly to prevent school districts from indoctrinating our children in religion.

However, atheism is also a religious view. Punishing those who express other religious opinions actively promotes one religious opinion; atheism. If a child is sent home in disgrace for writing a theme about Jesus or Moses, or Mohammed, that is a direct government message that religious opinions are evil -- except, of course, the view that religion is evil.

It has been pointed out that the same U.S. Supreme Court, which has forbidden the display of the Ten Commandments in schools, itself meets in a building decorated with images carved in stone depicting Moses receiving the Ten Commandments.

If there still exist sufficient reasons to continue holding public school, browbeating little children into an atheistic world-view is not one of those reasons.

Thousands of families now home-school their children to avoid this sort of propaganda against God, against the Bible, against morality and decency, and against religion.

I wonder what percentage of parents who complain about the assault on religion in this nation will be attending church with their children. Any percentage below fifty percent would indicate that most people don't really care.

As long as "In God We Trust" appears on paper money and coins used to pay for school lunches, god will remain in schools. A better question would be "why did we allow God to be removed from homes?". ... More ›
