My daughter is very open about talking about god exspecially at school. Unless she is being pushy, I dont and will not discourage it.My daughter is real excited about her summer plans of going to church camp and few of the students were intrested in going. My daughter wanted me make copies of the camp applications for her friendsShe has been telling me that her teacher has been telling her she cant talk about god or her church camp because of sepration between church and state. but what about the freedom of speech. Doesnt my daughter have the right to talk about what she wants as long as she is not disrespecting anybody or cursing?

I don't see it as a big deal but these days people are hyper-sensative. The teacher may be looking at it like she is soliciting people to the camp. As much as I hate to say it maybe your daughter should just discuss it off school grounds. It is a shame that people can not be mature enough to hear something they don't agree with and just walk away or peacefully disagree. Instead we try to muzzle each other so no one can even speak what is true to them. Very sad.

Would you mind if my son talked about the Goddess at school and give your daughter his opinions on the Bible? I am sure she would be offended. Keeping religion out of school protects everyones rights, including children like your DD.
