    I’m as dumbfounded as Cagney’s pal as well.

    Again, sadly true.

    This is STILL a Christian Nation!
    You can’t tell me kids don’t pray in school during exams!

    Ugh – school isn’t the place for religious stuff. It’s the place where people of all faiths and no faiths can be together and do what schools are for – learn! I’m all for living out your faith, but making the school into a religious center is not right.

    when I was growing up we said the Pledge of Allegence EVERY DAY, and we sang “God Bless America”, most every day. We had a Christmas party in December and exchanged gifts. We did not have a Christmas tree in the classroom but there was usually one in the main hall by the office. We had Christmas programs that involved singing Carols and Santa. Seems like no one complained back then. Sad to see the decline of this nation when it comes to Christmas and God. Just sayin’

    Jeannie, people complained, but most were over-ridden by the religious zealots & bigots. Keep your religious beliefs in your home, church/synagog/mosque. It is inappropriate to try to push your beliefs on others using the public government/schools. Public schools are NOT the place for that.

    @D W

    To the point that even teachers are forbidden of saying “Merry Christmas”, even if they’re not IN the school??

    I was a high school teacher for 27 years…I’m also an atheist and totally disgusted with the fanatics on the religious right trying to impose their views on everyone…that said, I always had a small Christmas tree in my class room, saw no harm in it and I still see no harm in it…when political correctness crept in, I started calling it a holiday tree, but it still had lights, tinsel, ornaments and students would put presents under it…I also played Christmas music…there are two aspects to Christmas: the religious one, which I ignored, and the American Holiday one, which I embrace

    Atheism is a “religion” to those who try to push the “no god” down everyones throat. They have gotten to the point where their “rights” trump all others.

    What exactly is religious about a Christmas Tree? I know what it represents to Christians but that doesn’t make it a religious symbol any more than a river represents baptism. A Christmas Tree is simply a beautiful and fun decoration that can have many meanings for many people at this time of year. BTW – Merry Christmas

    Are any of you old enough to remember how our world was when we had the Flag and Pledge of Allegiance inn schiool?
    That is NOT religion. that is loving, appreciating and honoring your Country. Now, as Christians we pray. We do not ask anyone to pray who does not want to. Nobody “pushed” you to be christian however what I see is you all pushing us to forget GOD and be ethiest, moslem, etc. You told God to leave and I believe he did. As a result, our country is in chaos and your still not happy. If you don’t like the fact that we are and have always been a christian nation, get the H*** out.

    Sad but true commentary. When the US was founded the majority of states were church-states. The Founders did not want the Feds to over-ride their authority so they forbid them from establishing a national church (like so many countries in Europe) while at the same them protecting the state-churches. That was the original meaning the the 1st Amendment. The last state to cease to be a church-state was in 1820, almost 45 years after the founding. This understanding the 1st Amendment held until 1948 when the SCOTUS began to redefine the clause to be equate any religious expression on public property with the government establishing a national religion. So now the Amendment intended to protect religion from the state is used as a weapon against the church by the state… And you end up with silly rulings all over the place. Sad.
