Of course prayer alone won't stop school shootings. That's why we need to post the Ten Commandments in every classroom!

*kid walks in with gun, looks at faux-stone tablets*
Kid: Oh! Thou shalt not kill! I've going at this all wrong.
*kid starts kneecapping people instead*

Collective Christian right-wing: Yay!

I was thinking about that this morning actually. How this could easily be turned ugly by the right wing to be a gay bashing thing... Ugh.

Actually, it's the people calling in that keep calling Foley gay. The guest has been very good. He responds to allegations of homosexuality b saying that Foley is a pedophile, not necessarily gay. Makes me happy to have rational people on NPR. Though the populace at large is apparently retarded.

I'm such a non-conformist, I'm not going to conform with you guys

PS: Prayer in schools will NOT prevent school shootings.

Prayer in schools, in general, will prevent school shootings. And here's how:

The specific act of prayer or worship of anyone's specific god isn't going to help and doesn't really matter. However, part of the problem with America today with regards to the children is that they lack some fundamental moral and psychological guidence. This is the reason I hate kids. Back in the day you'd just cure bad behavior with the switch, and encourage good behavior with WWJD indoctrination. Then somewhere along the lines this became an unacceptable way to raise children. And honestly I'm not making a case that it is or isnt' the way to go. But then the pendulum swings the other way. How do you raise kids in today's world? Everyone is banging the "let them be free to experes themselves and figure out the big questions on their own" drum. And well, frankly some kids are angry and don't psychologically connect socialized suffering. There is a strong need for moral guidance. I think the stats on violence for persons under the age of 16 are proof enough of this state of affairs. So lets say you're following my argument and haven't bailed out at the first line...my point is again, not that worshiping jesus is the right answer. After all, Christians have been killing kids in the name of their god for a really long time. But what I am saying that moral education and psychological address is needed, and prayer in schools is an attempt at doing something about those things. But here's the rub, no one has a good answer and everyone is taking issue with every suggestion. It's like trying to pick a restuarant to go to with a group of 300 millon. Kinda rough. But I think prayer as an answer is a movement in the right direction. Not that I actually support the movement. But, you know, in a world of genecide, killing "not quite as often" is a move in the right direction.

PPS: Pedophilia DOES NOT EQUAL homosexuality Heh. You said "Pee-Pee".

Re: I'm such a non-conformist, I'm not going to conform with you guys

You're correct, mostly. Fundamentally, what kids need is moral guidance. They should be getting this from their parents, or a church I suppose if that's what their parents want.

The real problem is that kids are lacking tis connection with a guiding force, one that cares for and disciplines them, instills a sense of belonging, moral right and wrong and social awareness. Previously, the church provided the majority of this.

Now, parents either don't want or haven't the time to exist for their children. That's what causes all this.

That doesn't make sense. The adults (parents/teachers/etc.) faled to give the children guidance, so you're going to direct your hate at the children?

Ok I'm the person who said "area code + number"...

...because in Seattle you still have to use the area code for local numbers, so it's not long distance, and you don't have to dial one, but you do have to dial the area code, so I thought this was a trick question because you didn't ask "How do you dial a long-distance number from a landline?" you asked "how do you dial an area code?"

Anyway.

No, school prayer doesn't solve anything except pissing people off. And that certainly won't prevent school shootings. PLEASE tell me that's not our complete imbicile of a leader's solution...although it probably is. *sigh*
HOW ABOUT THIS, DICK-HEADS?!! INCREASE SCHOOL FUNDING, DECREASE CLASS SIZE, CREATE A COMPETITIVE MARKET TO ENCOURAGE GOOD TEACHERS, AND PUT A FUCKING THERAPIST IN EVERY SCHOOL , *NOT* A "COUNSELOR" WHO DOES NOTHING BUT PREP FOR THE SAT's!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jesus mother-fucking CHRIST, what DIMENSION do these people LIVE IN!?!!

And thank you, incidentally, for the pedophilia/homosexuality comment. Why that is not obvious to more people, I will never understand. I think these people are so sexually repressed that they just clump ALL "deviant sexual behavior" in one group, so gays, pedophiles, furries, incestuous family members, B/D-S/M fans and women incapable of a "vaginal orgasm" are all the same people, apparently: communists.

Re: Ok I'm the person who said "area code + number"...

I asked "How do you dial an area code from a landline." That's pretty close. You only get half stupid points. :P

I haven' heard Bush calling for prayer in school yet but some senators and congress people are. Most of the prayer commets came from callers on NPR today. Idjits. Ditto the origins regarding the pedophilia and homosexuality connection.

I just don't get why people seem unwilling or unable to separate the two. This may be my failing by having half a brain and some education....

Fucking communists.

Re: Ok I'm the person who said "area code + number"...

it's the same where i live. you always have to dial the area code. i guess phone dialing "simpler" for people when they don't live in or near a big city, eh? *shrug*
nefas From: nefas Date: October 3rd, 2006 09:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
where i live, you always have to dial the area code with the phone number.

if you had said something along the lines of "how do you dial a long-distance area code from a land line," i would've added the 1+.

part of the problem with this poll is the wording. ;)
