    Steve Farley is just trying to start some mess because she didn't say she'd like that. Just that maybe it would help turn the tide essentially.

    Would anyone ever support such an idea?

    No, it flies in the face of religious liberty.

    Was that the voice of George Bush Sr., as voiced by Dana Carvey?

    It'd amount to secularization of the church and we're doing that enough on our own without it being mandated. :(

    Me thinks Sen Allen was being facetious. did you see the one statement: “But since that would not be allowed "

    Sen Allen, IMHO was simply attempting to get people to think

    So it is ok to be compelled to attend schools that teach godless creation, but not ok to be compelled to attend schools that teach God's creation.

    Two wrongs to not make a right, let give us a choice as to whether we go to church or not, and whether we (members of our family) attend schools that teach Theism or Atheism.

    I believe Arizona is a concealed carry state, anyone over 18 can carry a 40 caliber Glock. How many mass killings of weaponless people will it take before the penny drops?
