New Pledge of Allegiance

The latest in cool chain email with a Christian perspective of course. Unfortunately since it is chain email I have no idea as to the actual writer other than the claims. My experience is that the claims are dubious or enhanced with each send-link in the chain; nonetheless this is very cool.

New Pledge of Allegiance

Since the Pledge of Allegiance
and The Lord's Prayer
are not allowed in most
public schools anymore
Because the word 'God' is mentioned...
An amazing 15 yr old child 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!

You didn't take this seriously, did you? It's soooo wrong!

There is no law against prayer, speaking of God, quoting the Bible, etc. in public schools. The only laws about it simply state that teachers and school officials can't lead students in any of it. Same as with tattoos... as long as the school isn't proscribing it... go ahead. It's called freedom. You against freedom?
