    As an atheist, I note that he prayed for limbs, but God didn't deliver. I congratulate him for his human abilities.

    I watched like half of it until he started talking about religion. Is he doing that in a public school? Hope not in America. That has no place in an American Public School. No place at all.

    I feel bad for the guy. I know he's had to deal with some very hard times in his life. No wonder he takes comfort in mythology. Probably makes him feel better about himself.

    "no place in American public school" :rofl:
    we have freedom OF religion, NOT freedom FROM religion. So he has every right to say that in a public school, but the kids are free to make up their own minds.

    Absolutely not. Not on taxpayer time, not in taxpayer facilities, and not while conducting taxpayer matters. The Supreme Court is clear on this. Your lack of understanding about it matters very little. There is to be no use of public schools to present any religious messages to children. To do so gives them the impression that it is sanctioned by their authorities which is a betrayal of their purpose. We're in the process of getting a local teacher fired for such things. The courts are clear on this make no mistake.

    And yes... we also have freedom FROM religion as well. So an Atheist child doesn't have to be subjected to your favorite brand of mythology. There is no State Endorsed Religion. And despite what you want to believe this is not a nation founded on Christian ideals.

    If all of you people claiming that Christians are being discriminated against in this country would stop and think, maybe you would understand why there NEEDS to be a separation of church and state.

    To advocate otherwise is really just saying that the MAJORITY religion should be allowed to be taught in public schools, or at government sponsored meetings. We have a dispute going on in our community right now because our town councel has decided to suspend Christian prayers to open their meetings. You would not believe the uproar this has caused. Christians protesting the town councel meetings, writing scathing letters to the local newspaper. One writer had the gaul to say that if you don't want to listen to the Christian prayer, just leave and stand outside.

    All it would take to convince these people of the folly of state sponsored religion is to live in France, Belgium or any number of other European countries, which within one generation will likely have Muslim majorities. How would these Christians feel having to attend schools where there children were taught to hate and kill infidels who don't believe in Islam, or to hear public prayers to Allah asking for strength to fight and kill Christians.

    Open your eyes and minds. There is good reason not to allow state sponsored religion for ANYONE because it protects EVERYONE.

    Fine with this fellow presenting in a public school. There are plenty of children being forced to have to listen to how queers and their lifestyle are all supposed to be treated as normal, just because the left-wing liberals say such must be tolerated. School children are forced to listen to the unmitigated propaganda of planned parenthood and their surrogates pushing the killing of children as choice rather than the flushing of a child judged as to inconvenient to live. Again the left-wing liberals all trumpet this as right and good in the name of left-wing liberalism. So... let this man say what he will in the public school. And if the left-wing liberals get their underwear in a wad over it, so what? Why should anyone at all care? It's no like what they think matters. Turn about is fair play.

    No... because they are people and they deserve equal and fair treatment. Homosexuality is not a religion. Simply because your mythology says it's wrong doesn't mean that is so. And it certainly is not the American way.

    Again, not a religion. Just a fact of life.

    Because this man will go to jail, the teachers and administrators will be fired because this is unconstitutional in America. Love it or get out. I assume this is happening in another country. School employees get fired for things like this in the States. Thankfully so.

    doesn't matter.

    any parent that actually cares about their kid wouldn't think of putting them in public school these days anyway.

    and anyone who tries to rationalize putting their kid in public school is essentially saying "I'm too selfish to spend my beer and porn money on private school tuition" or "My partner and I don't want to homeschool the kid because we're too busy and don't really want to be around the kid all day".

    but hey it's still a free country.

    Mmmmmmmmm yes home school. Turning children into weirdos and socially maladjusted misfits. Nice.

    Home schooled girls were always fun. They'd believe anything.

    ROFLMAO. Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!


    I have very smart and capable coworkers who were homeschooled throughout highschool, and they are awkward and socially inept and some are downright weird!!!

    Not having sex until 24 years old will do that to you.

    There is significant studies that show social exposure to children at young ages is critical to development: if as an adult you can't tell the difference between sarcasm/joke and a straight honest statement, you're at a huge disadvantage. My boss is like that: I call him a robot... He's very mathematical and reliable. But he can't interpret people or work within the gray areas of available rules.

    I suspect a lot of GT'ers have this same problem, which is why they're so narrow minded and walk around with their fingers in their ears.

    Why not just put the kids down? If you love them so much send them to be with Jesus. It really is what's best for them.

    That would bring about a Swift solution to the problem.
