Can you pray for the Texas districts to stop the discrimination?

I am Jewish and I do not want my child studying ANY religion in public schools. Thats what your church is for. Why are they forcing students to study a religion in public schools?

  • They're not forced - they can't do that. It's an optional class. Schools in west Texas have been offering a Bible class for a while now.

    And I don't pray, so can't help ya there either.

    BUT, I agree --- religion is schools should be absent or should cover ALL religions equally.

  • They aren't. The class is optional. But yes I will "pray" they stop the discrimination.

  • I will pray that any school stops the discrimination against the Christians.
    It is about time that this Nation's foundation be taught, discussd and practiced again.
    For many years now the other religions have been filling the minds of the children and even adults.
    God says it is His time to be heard again.
    If your kids are so offeneded with it or you are.....have them go to study hall so the other kids can learn some reality in life.
    I am believing that ALL the schools will be required to put the Bible back in the hands of people.

  • BB I am just as much of an American as you. My children deserve to go to school and not have religion forced on them. Why do you have to be insulting to my heritage?

  • Sorry bb, that would NEVER fly up here. NEVER. You may have the bible in schools in the bible-belt, but the rest of the country is not so close-minded as to pick one religion to teach their kids and leave out the rest.

    How were you insulted?
    I said if it offends you and your kids have them go to study hall for that time period.
    I am Jewish by bloodline and also through my salvation in Jesus Christ.
    If I truly did hurt you or offend you I am sorry...that was not my intention.

    You have no idea where I live.
    However, I do believe the PS system even way up here will soon get the same announcement.
