Atheist mother receives death threats... (read description)Posted by: reece
...After complaining about a preacher called "bible man" being invited to her child's public school. Keep in mind this wasn't extra curricular; it was during school hours.
Public schools shouldn't be endorsing any religion.
The women deserves what she got.
My school (also a government school) keeps changing principals, and unfortunately, the government allows quite a bit of autonomy in choosing who comes to our school to do talks (the government would probably only cringe if it involves spending money). We once had a Christian principal who invited Protestant singers to our school to preach. It's been 4-5 years now and I still haven't stopped mocking those guys' logic. 'Look at the veins that keep our body running... Just think about it, how can we be evolved from monkeys?'
Public schools are part of the government so religion must be kept for away from it
Start some kind of religious school if you want to shove that down innocent children's throats.
Simply put it violates the Establishment clause of the U.S. Constitution and breaks established law.
I heard about this no religion in schools!
While I don't think she deserved death threats, I think that it's okay that a preacher would go to a public school. If you are okay with evolution being taught in public schools, you should be okay with creationism being taught.
School's are a place of learning, are they not? The core fundamental principle of learning is exposure to ideas and knowledge. Should the school only allow a person of one particular faith in? No. But given that a large majority of the world subscribes to some sort of higher power, children should be at a minimum exposed to various religions. Note, atheist send death threats to religious organizations as well, so its not one-sided phenomena
