| The Federal government will cut off government funding to any school that initiate prayers, or makes some religious studies mandatory to students especially those that mention God in public. This is the same country that in every public address the President ends his speech with the 'infamous clause' may God bless America. "In God we Trust" is also a famous label at the back of every Dollar and every coin in America.
In the year 2001, the churches in America were all full house. People who had not prayed for ages prayed and indeed sought God. It was a terrible scene to watch two airplanes go through two buildings in day light. We were all scared. Something must be terribly wrong with the formulation of laws in this country. There are few people in this country who are still dreaming that there is no God. The other day, they took on the streets to demonstrate that they should be listened to and respected. Surprising enough they were led by some legislators; who unfortunately have been trusted with steering of this country. Where are they leading us to?
I urge every voter in this country to think before you cast your votes. The truth is, most men behind the wheels of this country are blind and the wheels are off the tracks. Surely even a blind man can 'see' the awesomeness of God. Come on guys you have veered off the tradition of this nation, God fearing lifestyle.
I believe American kids are being deprived opportunities of their lives; to know God. It is the most important thing to mankind. to know your creator. This decade is going very fast. Evil after evil. We have taken God away from schools and in return brought in and endorsed witchcraft. The other day I read a story of a lady who protested her kids from being forced study Harry Potter in school as a set book. We need to change our ways otherwise cries of evil imposed calamities will not leave us. Most legislators need to take refresher courses on the American history and government; or just stare at the US dollar note for a minute and I bet you George Washington will whisper something to you... "wrong way son... make a U-turn or crash head on."
If you fear the heat...make arrangements to avoid it.. Hell is real.

interesting article. I'm surprised to see that you feel the current administration is less religious than previous ones; i would have said that the current core of leaders are more religious and moralist than any over the last 30 years.
And, on God in schools; it's in the constitution. The US is based on the principles of freedom and liberty, things that are taken away when students are forced to partake in religious ceremonies and teachings as part of a state education.
Religion and the state do not mix well together, a brief glance at the history of Catholic Church illustrates as much ... and as such, i see it as imperative that religion isn't imposed from above by the state, but comes up through the community.

One of the things I've been most upset with lately is the unrelenting emphasis the US government places on Christianity in political and scholastic affairs.
God is different for many people; desirable or not that is the reality. In a real democracy respect and tolerance for others' convictions should never waive.

Religion is what many people turn to when in times of despair. However, in the modern world, what with technology and science, most people want to believe in something they can technically rely on. Religion can be seen as a fairytale. Who can be sure what the creator is? There should be freedom of religion everywhere. The president of the United States has the right to end his speeches any way he likes, especially as the United States is considered to be a predominantly Christian country. However, teaching religion in school is wrong because just think of the amount of kids who come from different cultural backgrounds!! They will feel left out- excluded! The United States Constitution is based on equality and freedom, and imposing religious teachings on children will not be in adherence with this. Let everyone live in the way that is best! And may eveyone discover their own religious life and beliefs!
