    Guess our national leaders didn't expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado, was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.
    They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The following is a portion of the transcript:

    While I sympathize with Mr. Scott's loss of his daughter, the premise of his statement is false. Children are not banned from praying in school. What IS illegal is public schools and their employees are not permitted to promote religion or lead prayers. This is as it should be. Parents have the right to teach their children their own family's beliefs and not have a teacher proselytizing something with which the parents may disagree. Would you wish a Wiccan teacher promoting their religion to your kids? A Muslim teacher? Catholic perhaps? There are many religions, and not all teachers belong to yours. Children go to public schools for an education in math, science, the arts, literature, language, etc. It serves a diverse population. Leave religion instruction to the home and churches.
