Students Stand Up to Christian Bashing in Public Schools

This video was produced by Reach America, an education organization based in Coeur d”Alene, Idaho.

Gary Brown, founder of the organization, said that one of the factors that inspired him to create this video, which is named The Thaw, happened last year when a public school teacher asked students to write an essay title, “I Believe,” without using the names God or Jesus in their papers.

    I found the cross toppling over at the end to be a bit disconcerting and in discord with the theme of the message. I hope the Thaw strengths the cross!

    Fantastic! What we really need is school choice. We need the voucher system to let parents send their kids to the schools they feel provide the values they believe. Frankly if we want a religious rennaissance to occur in this country, school choice is the means to bring it about. Think about that. No more indoctrination and God back in the daily consciouness of children.

    Maybe I clicked the wrong button so I’ll try again. There is so much wrong in this that it’s hard to know where to start, so I’ll start with this notion that in 1962 prayer was banned in school. Brute fact: No… this explains it:

    “the Court ruled that, under the establishment clause of the First Amendment, “it is no part of the business of government to compose official prayers for any group of the American people to recite as a part of a religious program carried on by government.”

    In other words, state-sponsored prayers in schools are
    unconstitutional. Students, on the other hand, are fully free to pray in
    public schools — alone or in groups, as long as they don’t disrupt the
    school or interfere with the rights of others.” from this:
