well if they did we would see how many schools got burned down because that is idiotic to say the least...why would we want to be like a barbaric religion?
Thats a truly unique way of trying to "sneak" a religion into our schools! Wow strike one up for ingenuity (yeah right) The schools should be geared toward learning. Inclusive of a curriculum that promotes advanced learning as well as respect for all individuals. If we're taking religion out of schools, take it ALL out. If you're taking my God out yours goes too and that includes any references to any religions also.<br />
Either that or have a place for every religion, where the children can feel free to go and worship and not be taunted by athiests. <br />
Tired of living in a free Country while all my rights are being ******** from me.
Why do you feel threatened by atheist more than religious fanatics?
Do atheist go around knocking on doors to spread their ideas - no..
Do atheist strap explosives to themselves and blow up innocents - no..
I don't understand why you feel threatened by atheist.
it sounds like they trying to replace one with another. in a very sneaky way.
Sounds like he believes only males should attend school, there is no written test, there is no grade system, you either know it or you don't, all testing is verbal, Islam is the center of all teachings, the Quran is committed to memory. This not a model that very many citizens in the US would embrace.
While I think it's not entirely fair to say all madrassas are like the ones the male Taliban members attend (females are not allowed to learn to read), it was a particularly bad example to use. Most models for educational reform are ba<x>sed on the latest research, not on old fashioned religious-ba<x>sed instruction!<br />
You know how they say if you learn how hot dogs are made you will never eat one again? The same is true for a lot of congressional speeches, from both parties. An awful lot of members of congress are terribly misinformed, or just plain slow. Listen to these guys and women speak and it's instant face palm.<br />
This particularly guy is quite stupid, but so was the senate candidate who believed that women can switch their fertility and off in cases of rape, and so was the Florida congressman who described Republican healthcare reform as "die quickly." Idiots all of them.<br />
It's amazing these people are paid $163,000 per year, plus expenses and lavish benefit packages. Honestly, most of them wouldn't deserve to paid minimum wage.<br />
Do you realize they have not even passed a budget in nearly 4 years? They keep passing "continuations," essentially kicking the can down the road. Working out and ratifying a budget should be their number one job priority, particularly when we are running thrillion dollar deficits each year.<br />
In most occupations, you get promptly fired if you refuse to perform your most basic job duties. That congress can get away with that consistently is frankly STUNNING to me.
They are there because people voted for them, so who is the stupid one the congressman or the people who gave him the job?
He shouldn't count on being re-elected. I imagine lots of Democrats will run against him in the next primary. <br />
There's a reason we have a separation of church and state in this country. <br />
Anyone who judges everyone in the Democratic Party ba<x>sed on the actions of one person is just as foolish as someone who judges all right-wingers by the actions of Tim McVeigh, the Oklahoma bomber.
And what is wrong with the Japanese school model?
