Fucking religious wingnuts strike again

The school's principal said yesterday he acceded to the complaints of a handful of parents who said that because the school's traditional Halloween celebrations offended their religious beliefs, they would not send their children to school if the revelry continued this year......Castelline, who met yesterday with the Parent Teacher Organization to explain his decision, said three teachers told him they had children in their classes who were not going to come to school if the Halloween celebration was held. The celebration, which has been going on for at least 14 years, involves teachers dressing up and lining the hallways and children making Halloween-related arts and crafts.


Once again, we find the wingnuts major hypocrisy-It's not enough for them to deprive their own children, no, they're not happy unless everyone else is as miserable & narrow minded as they are

It's late notice, but hopefully those parents NOT offended by a holiday are able to organize a REAL Halloween festival, with prizes for the most ghoulish costumes & most creative use of gore through makeup


And might as well come clean on my most interesting halloween

I've never usually had anything to give away on Halloween-mainly because kids don't come around

One year they broke that pattern, I was stunned to hear "Trick or Treat" outside the house, and making the response even goofier than it would have been otherwise was the fact that KC had gotten a bottle of Holiday Spirits-so to speak-and was loaded with holiday cheer

But, there was no candy to pass out to the impatient children, so I reached out for the two groups of items that were on the table by the door

And it was pennies & coathangers dispensed in a weird, yet happy, buzzy, haze to a crew that clearly weren't expecting such items

One of the kids brought a coat hanger up and actually held it back up so it reflected the moonlight back at me, and gave me a look like I was the Thing With Two Heads

When I didn't reply, but just stared off into the distance, after about two minutes, the group finally left

I only dealt with one more pod of Trick & Treaters before word got around to the other scavengers about the crazy, drunk gringo passing out pennies & coathangers

  • I certainly hope the school now enacts a policy that forbids any Christmas decorations (including making them in art class), candy canes, distribution of Xmas cards and singing of even non-religious Xmas carols on school grounds too.

  • Be it Christmas or Halloween, doesn't matter. Some idiot will complain. All our innocent hoildays have been ruined by adults because of their morals they insist on pushing on others.

  • I agree with you both! Lets just go ahead and nix ALL holidays. Why the fuck not? Some self righteous idiot will complain and then sue and it will get canned anyways.

    Grrr.

  • THE LAW IS THE LAW


    So if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money,

    then, so be it.

    And if that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or

    on a government installation,

    then, so be it.

    And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools,

    on which they deem their authority,

    then so be it.


    I say, "so be it," because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.

    I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.

    I would like to think that those people have the American Publics' best interests at heart.

    BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I'D LIKE?

    Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot Post His Commandments in Government buildings,

    I don't believe the Government and it's employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.

    I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter.

    After all, it's just another day.

    I'd like the US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays. After all, it's just another day.

    I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all it's just another day.

    I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter.

    It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."


    In fact....

    I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshipping God...) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day....

    What do you all think????

    If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the minority opinions and begin, once again, to represent the 'majority' of ALL of the American people.

    SO BE IT...........

    Please Dear Lord,

    Give us the help needed to keep you in our country!


    'Amen' and 'Amen'


    Touche!

    These are definitely things I never thought about but from now on, I will be sure to questions those, in government, who support these changes.

    At the top, it says "I hope this makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!!"

    Let's see that it does. Keep it in your mailbox and resend it whenever someone new comes along.

    "So Be It !"
