  • I laughed when they zoomed in on the black kid. But, religious freedom is religious freedom. And, who cares.

  • Didn't you see the video today on Glenn Beck with that teacher teaching her students a song all about obama?? That was really scary and just made me happy that my son won't be in school until that man is out of office because hopefully he is only a one term wonder.

  • But, no one said if the teacher told them to do it or they chose to. Plus, Obama or not our president is the president, you should raise your kids to respect the president and our government, regardless you if like them or not.

  • BECK showed the video? Aha..I knew there was a slimy, libelous Fox "News" creep behind all the wackiness here. Beck...why listen to him? He's a mean man who is anti everything. The kids were appreciating their President, being good citizens and it was really cute. But Beck and the right wingnuts think the kids are "worshipping". WHat a huge lie.

  • Not that I agree with the whole Jesus Camp thing, but they aren't being taught to worship Bush, they are being taught to pray for him and our country. It is a church # one, which is a big difference from a public school that is tax dollar funded. A church can be as weird as they want, as long as they are not receiving federal funding. A school however, it is highly inappropriate for a teacher to push her political agenda on the kids.

  • I saw the video today on Glenn Beck with that teacher teaching her students a song all about obama?? It was disturbing. They should sing about ALL the presidents or NOT at all.

  • I'll call your private church camp, and I'll raise it with one public school teaching children to worship BO.

  • It is not weird to advise christian children to pray for GWB. I am sure during that time he needed all the prayers he could get. I know Obama needs them too.

    I would also like to point out she did that because she doesn't agree with Bush. She was pretty much getting the children to remind "Bush" that we are one nation under God, meaning he was straying from faith. I think the Mmm Mmm Mmm Barack Hussein Obama, He said we must be fair today, Equal work means equal pay. Is way creepier! Of course they had to throw the race card it was for Black history month. I don't remember singing any MLK songs on Black History month in my all black school, in New Orleans East. I guess coloring a picture of Obama wasn't enough, like it was for MLK back in my day.
