    I understand the article is a commentary and not a news story, but even for a commentary, it sounds farfetched. Can anyone verify this?

    We've got a Christmas tree in front of the white house, for pete's sake!!!

    There's a nativity in my own city's central plaza!!!

    Having public religious Christmas displays is not illegal and that's been tested in courts countless times!!!! Could someone please pass that on to paranoid school administrators.

    Yes, and a chaplain still opens each congressional session with a prayer.

    The battlefront is in the public school. That is where future leaders are made.

    It's not far-fetched at all.

    It's just a matter of time before the following are banned.

    desks...made from trees

    story telling time...promoting false and fraudulent information

    teachers...found to be guilty of faults and having too much influence on children

    pencils... made from trees

    principals... overly authoritative and could lead to complexes by passive children.

    writing tablets... made from trees

    buses... causes pollution and ozone decay.

    history... found to be based on biased information

    drivers education... major cause of allowing people to obtain drivers license and thus car accidents.

    libraries...my overly influence a child against it's own natural ignorance. And a major use of books made from the destruction of trees.

    Independent thought…may not conform to society's standard
    :rolleyes:

    Post-it, some of those are already being taken away. :( Especially the one about independent thought.

    It burns me to no end to that they restrict the rights of Christians in order to promote other religions.
