Default New School Prayer

Since the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord's Prayer are not allowed in most public schools anymore because the word "God" is mentioned a kid in Arizona wrote the attached NEW School prayer.

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the state.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's "inappropriate" to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such "judgments" do not belong.

We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
Amen

The one who's been indoctrinated by her parents rather than the one who's been inseminated by the jock.

So you don't think the born-again xtians like to be persecuted. c.f. the Catholics liking to feel guilty. It's all in their nature.

But I am not a Catholic I am a Lutheran. People have a branch of Faith that suits. So I do not like to be persecuted for my beliefs but I am. Freedom of speech applying one way only.

Aah Jesus, it's just some poem that got emailed around and probably wasn't started by a kid in Arizona at all.

Is it? Not so written in the Constitution I do believe. Where did you get that idea from?

I used the wrong word when I said I am, it should be we as Christians are as per Websters persecute 1 : to harass in a manner designed to injure, grieve, or afflict; specifically : to cause to suffer because of belief. Now obviously you will take issue with that but try and stay with it.
