I know that sounds quite the double-standard, but I need to vent.
Please keep our public schools religion-free. If you want your religion to be the cornerstone of your education, go to a religious school that fits with your beliefs and enroll your children there. Do not force my child to fit into your niche. Do not tell me your god needs to be brought back into every school. Not everyone believes in your god. Forcing them to learn about it and preach it every day will not make anything better. It will make those who believe feel stronger in their beliefs, yes, but it will alienate and cause conflict with those that do not. Instead of bringing your god back into classrooms, lets bring tolerance, peace, and love back. Lets teach our kids that bullying for any reason is not ok. Lets teach them to work together instead of one-upping eachother… that is what I want thought to my children in schools, not that one god is better than the next.
