Just a off topic thought:
19 posts and 1492 readers - that's equivalent to a Youtube video going viral in one day!
It is also one of the LONGEST one page posts I have ever seen.
Greenbee thanks for adding location.
Because of the unique characteristics of this post. I is going to the Post of the Day on our Twitter Feed @ www.twitter.com/beemasterforum
where those who follow will get to keep up with all the hot topics and insider and behind the scenes stuff here at Beemaster Central.
I do need to make comment, NOT on anything said here in particular, but just generalizing. I can see how prayer in school (or pledge of allegiance in its whole form before taking God out) can be interpreted by most as a Christian thing. Just as Nascar must be a Christian Sport because each race has a benediction is ended "in Jesus Name. Amen"
I've grown to accept the world we live in is ruled by pansies who fold and flop at every threat of litigation. The do not represent the people, the try to reduce the damage caused to the respective parties as a whole. Do your time in office, screwing the people and get out with the least evidence possible.
a good solution seemed to me, years ago when God became a four-letter word to so many people who have little else in life but to fight battles and cause mayhem. I thought the "Moment of Silence" idea was a good compromise. Each student or teacher could use it to do whatever they wished, if indeed anything at all.
Then came along people spouting "it is the same as prayer, because if they aren't praying, what ARE they doing?" and the wackos chime in and say, the must be designing bombs or ways to bring guns into the schools.
The shame of it all is, you can't have it all ways, any single way can be interpreted from a peaceful moment between man and his maker, to devilish time to plot and destroy. I think that most people, if not using it positively, the are likely catching up with a really short power nap - just a moment of quiet in a frantic world.
I feel sorry for those who have SET IN STONE ideas that this is it, there is nothing after this. I'd rather comeback as cockroach through incarnation than to just simply stop existing completely.
I have always said I have Christian believes, which mean to me, I try my best to lead a good life, respect and praise my wife at all times and to every one, thank my Lord for every day when I awake and speak to him when I need advice, then before I go to bad each night, I recap the day and try to self evaluate if I did a good job, always asking to do better tomorrow but firstly, ask for the health and longevity of my wonderful wife Tracey.
Doing these things make me feel good. Many people argue I am wasting my time, but when is doing what feels right and hoping to be a better person each day a waste of your time?
I look at the world and the suffrage and starvation and I know before I ever address the Lord that I have been blesses - we all have, no matter how we have it, no matter if you live in rubble and steal your neighbors internet, look at the other 80% of the world's population and if you cannot see there is a God looking over you, then you are blind.
But if taking a person's moment away from them to speak with their God and thank him for all they have, that is okay, God is infinite and he'll be there when they can get a chance to speak. Lucky for us, the Leftist that would choose us talking to the Government to get handouts DON'T have control over us ever-minute. And the leftist ideas that trickle down to the haters who can't stand to see peace in anyone's lives, because they don't have peace in their own lives unless they've made someone else miserable - they will realize someday that their God "Government" will be here but a flashbulb in time - all societies fail eventually, it is the way of humans and of time. When Government goes away, where will the haters turn to then - anyone ever hear of foxhole religion?!
