Exclusively Christian Public Schools

There must be daily mandatory Christian prayer in the public schools. There will be the daily mandatory Lord’s prayer in the morning, prior to the start of the day’s lessons. There will then be a mid-day prayer giving thanks unto the lord for the blessings of the mid-day meal that the children shall receive. This prayer will be conducted immediately prior to the start of the mid-day school meal. Children shall receive their daily lessons, pursuant to the strictest interpretations of the Bible. There will be a policy of zero tolerance for the questioning of one’s teachings, as this may well rise to the level of willful and premeditated blaspheme. The expression of independent thought or philosophy will not be tolerated under any circumstances. Laughing, joking, games of chance, speaking out of turn, stepping out of line, sleeping, slouching, horseplay, shenanigans, and all other forms of tomfoolery are strictly prohibited both in the schoolhouse and out on the schoolyard, and are not to be tolerated under any circumstances. The children shall receive 15 minutes of recess immediately following the mid-day meal, where they will be strictly marched out onto and around the schoolyard. During the recess and at all other times when not seated in class, children will be expected to step in line. When seated in the classroom, children shall maintain the appropriate posture. Slouching will not be tolerated under any circumstances. School elders, including teachers, administrators and headmaster, shall be addressed by the title of "sir" or "ma’am". When addressing a school elder, the child shall be required to stand up straight, with arms behind the back and head slightly bowed. Eye contact is absolutely prohibited. The enforcement of rules and discipline will be conducted through the use of hickory sticks and woodshed visits, and any child who receives a whipping at school can expect to receive another when he or she arrives home. Any child expressing an independent thought or questioning school teachings will be publicly sanctioned and corrected through the use the hickory rod by the headmaster on a stage in front of the entire school.

As much as I would love to see everyone Christian (preferably Catholic), I have to disagree here.

We go to school to learn and be educated and there's all sorts of schools out there. There's music schools, dance schools, public schools, acting schools, etc. If you look in Matthew 22:15-21, it says

Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said. So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality. Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?" But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, "Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites? Show me the coin used for the tax." And they brought him a denarius. Then he said to them, "Whose head is this, and whose title?" They answered, "The emperor's." Then he said to them, "Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor's, and to God the things that are God's."

With this passage, I believe God wants us to have our independence too. Religious education should come from church and family, not some teacher.

P.S. I remember going to a Catholic school in grade 9 and 10, and let me tell you, there were gay teachers, teachers engaging in pre-marital sex, and the last director of the school board had an affair with the chair lady of the board and one other guy knocked up his secretary and got her pregnant, and she got an abortion. It's very un-Christ like and very hypocritical, don't you think.

God bless and have a nice day
