Cranston Commenters #8

Cranston Commenters #8 January 12, 2012

This post (and all posts on the Cranston Commenters) contains the opinions of JT Eberhard – not the Secular Student Alliance.

Someone find me a dump truck full of pacifiers for the commenters in the Providence Journal.

harley0011 adds to the cacophony:

This state disgusts me more every day. It is rulings like this why this country is going down hill at lightning speed. Heaven forbid the princess child has to be tolerant and respect others beliefs, we all have to bend to hers. Disgusting!!!

The child princess?  Hold up now.  The religious people are the ones insisting they’re above the law.  That sounds a lot more like pretensions to royalty to me.  Take off the tiara and try to put yourself in the shoes of the lowly atheists for just a second, harley.

And she’s not being intolerant.  What she did was ask her school to obey the law.  She is not saying anybody can’t pray, she’s not ripping bibles from people’s hands.  She asked the religious citizens of Cranston to abide by the law.  They said “no”.  That type of “lesson” for our young adults should not be tolerated, and it speaks volumes of you that you think it should, or that you think somebody is pretentious (or “disgusting”) for thinking otherwise.

It also says volumes of your faith as a moral guideline that it’s failed to cure you of that silly position.
