I think it's the fact ONE complaint won over the rest of the whole school that is the annoying part. For me anyway.

There are plenty more problems in this world to be worrying about other than a school prayer on a wall that can be ignored. We all see/read things that offend us but are mature enough to just carry on. Life throws much at us and the real problems in life need addressing, not trivialities. Don't make a big song and dance over nothing. And a school prayer is indeed nothing. My mum has Muslim pupils in her C of E school and they don't complain whatsoever. They are permitted to sit out of assembly but some don't as they enjoy the songs.
Damn Straight!
I said Pledge of Allegiance every friggen school day!

As for saying anything to the people standing on the street in the hood I have no reason to say anything to them, chances are if it is unwanted graffiti they aren't going to be staying around long they will get arrested. lets think a little harder before typing next time.
I didn't say the people on the street did the graffiti and I didn't say you live in the hood. My point was being out of place and complaining about someone else's environment.
Next time elaborate a little more

Re: Atheist Teen Forces School to Remove Prayer from Wall After 49 Years

And another thing, my local college had "Black power" symbols on the walls. That annoyed me as it is actually illegal and hypocritical of them as they'd immediately cause a shit storm if it was some "White power" logo. Imagine it!!!! Total hypocritical SHIT. There was also quotes by gobshite boxer Mohammed Ali everywhere. Now I did point out to the college staff that the logos were illegal but did they remove them over my sole complaint? Absolutely not. Nor should that school have removed their traditional prayer over one complaint.

Apple and oranges. O'Hair, her son, and granddaughter were murdered by an employee (who turned out to be a violent felon) and his accomplices for the sole purpose of robbing them. O'hair wasn't murdered because of her atheist viewpoints.

Re: Atheist Teen Forces School to Remove Prayer from Wall After 49 Years

If you want to be really technical, The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution does not specifically state, verbatim, that you have a freedom from religion.



It's amusing that the Atheist will quote Jefferson responding to Baptists' concern over an official Federal religion(ex. Lutheranism in Germany, the C of E in Britain, Catholicism in other nations) and assume he was talking about a complete severance of religion from the State ( such as you had in the USSR where it worked out great or the "Peoples" Republic of China, where you get sent to prison if you have an "illegal" church [meaning you talk about anything the state doesn't want you to]).


I'm sure that it must be a rough life being atheist in the U.S., but honestly, most people don't give a shit unless you turn into an attention whore and make a public scene over how offended you are.

But then again, when the shoe's on the other foot, we can expect to see you dog piling on the BABBY JEBUS LUVR.

The only time religion was ever mentioned in any school I've ever been in, is when we would sing the National Anthem during assemblies in Elementary School. Things have changed since your time.

oh boy you had to belt out the national anthem? Only certain people could pull that off! *my ears hurt thinking about it*
I had to sing "My country tis of thee.."
