At this point, I was in public school. I did go to an Episcopal boarding school from 4-9th grade, and we had Morning Prayer every day, but even the public schools had a Bible reading. I do remember that most of it was from the OT; one of my teachers was particularly fond of Proverbs.
I know I’m stirring up a hornet’s nest, but I graduated in 1960. We had a Bible reading every morning -sometimes by the teacher and sometimes by a student. We said the Lord’s Prayer. We didn’t have half the girls in the school pregnant out of wedlock. We didn’t have kids coming to school armed and dangerous. The worst problems a teacher had was chewing gum and talking in class. Yes, we had bullies and drop outs, and a lot of kids “tuned out” during opening exercises, but something stuck in spite of it all.
I’m a Christian and he certainly doesn’t represent me!
Sort of an anti-Midas touch.
