NEW School prayer :

Now I sit me down in school, Where praying is against the rule

For this great nation under God, Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites, It violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow, Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green, That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.

The law is specific, the law is precise. Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall Might offend someone with no faith at all.

In silence alone we must meditate, God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks, And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks..

They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible. To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen, And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.

It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong, We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls, Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed, No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess, When chaos reigns the school's a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make: Should I be shot; My soul please take!


Ride safe.

Peace out, yo!

Blue Here's a link to a great story. For some reason it seems to relate to your post.

How about going over to Colesburg with us. We have at lest 5 of our team mates going for some tough gravel.

Good one Blue. Funny how being decent and good is the "rebel" thing these days. My kids are right in the middle of this, so your post really hits home for me. Thanks.

Thanks for the link, john. good story!

i can't imagine being a kid today. there are no absolutes left in our society, no rules for being a good citizen. i think we're allowed to make the rules up as we go along now, as long as no one's feelings are hurt in the process. situational ethics and situational morality are the rule of the day.

the line that i found most intriguing is:

"It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong, We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong."

that's the story of america today. society as a whole no longer defines right and wrong. it's left up to each individual to make those decisions. (or to whomever thinks for the masses. no one thinks for themselves any longer. we don't know how.) it's the cowardly way out, if you ask me, and the beginning of the end for american society as we have known it. no one will stand for "right" or against "wrong" because no one knows which is which anymore.
