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

Cathedrals(architecture), and paintings are works of art.
A mural with a quote from the bible is not.

Who are you to say what Art is?
Define a real artist, How does he/she create art?

By the definition you've set forth, I could write down a passage from The Fellowship of the ring.
Suddenly that's art?

No.

I'm a commie because I refuse to worship a dead guy?
As far as the founding of the U.S.:
Quote:
"For rebellion as is the sin of witchcraft." 1 Samuel, 15:23
1 Peter 2:13: "For the Lord's sake accept the authority of every human institution, whether of the emperor as supreme, or of governors, as sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to praise those who do right."

Romans 13:1: "Let every person be subject to the governing authorities; for there is no authority except from God, and those authorities that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resist authority resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment."
The american revolution was decidedly un-christian, in biblical terms.

Here's a bit more:

Religion is the root of all evil. Christians are the worst. They don't practice what they preach, and they conveniently leave out the horrible passages that the bible contains. Anytime religion loses, I am happy. Anytime religion loses, the world becomes a better place.

I would be fine with the sign said "Praise to be Allah", or "Hail Satan". However, putting up a sign that says "Jesus doesn't exist" would just make you an asshole. Big difference!

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

Not really.
They're all beliefs(or lack thereof).

What's the difference exactly?

It's called not having respect for other peoples cultures.

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

Ok. So if I was to go into a preschool and tell all the kids that Santa wasn't real, that wouldn't make me an asshole? Sure it would! There is no reason, other than being a prick, to argue with someone elses beliefs. My beliefs don't bother anybody, atleast they shouldn't.
