    New School Prayor

    BY A 15 yr. Old SCHOOL KID IN ARIZONA

    New Pledge of Allegiance (TOTALLY AWESOME)!

    Since the Pledge of Allegiance
    And The Lord's Prayer
    Are not allowed in most
    Public schools anymore
    Because the word 'God' is mentioned.....
    A kid in Arizona wrote the attached

    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!
    Amen

    Very clever, though this has been around for quite some time now. Have they actually banned the pledge in any schools yet? As an atheist I have no problem saying the pledge at all and think it is stupid if they were to remove it from schools. You can define god however you like.

    where do people get this dribble.

    No one is prohibited from praying in a public school.

    some schools may have stopped using the Pledge, but no one is prohibited from reciting it in any public school.

    Don't know where you get your info from but many, many schools have banned prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. Some allow prayer during private club meetings but not during school hours. This is all done for "separation of Church and State" which no one has been able to show me in the Constitution yet. Mainly because it's not there.

    +1. It is not in the Constitution. Some will try and say it is in the 1st Amendment. They must be reading a differant Constitution.

    Well, at least you are honest and can see that the pledge is about commitment to ones nation, without which I as a Christian and you as an Atheist would be shot or beheaded or something.

    Bull. Every child and every teacher can pray in every school whenever they feel like praying.

    You can pray anywhere at anytime. If you aren't praying where and when you feel like praying, then it is your choice.

    Oh wait, now I understand, what you mean is schools and other government institutions prohibit you from making others listen to your prayers. Are you afraid that you god can't hear your prayer unless I have to listen to it too?

    The supreme court was just joking back in 1962 and 1963 when they "supposedly" banned it. They were just jokin', I guess.

    Man, you are ridiculous.
