They took prayer out of school and once talked about taking in "God we trust" off of the money.

I was under the impression that Buddhists don't subscribe to any deities.
Some teachers tell students beginning Buddhist meditation that the notion of divinity is not incompatible with Buddhism. Like Christianity there are different sects. Theravada Buddhists, Mahayana Buddhists, and Dhammakaya Movement of Thailand
I suppose if that deity didn't conflict with self-empowerment, then it would be possible.
It's' ok to be tolerant of others beliefs, but it's not away to turn your back on the God that America was built around. Which is the God of love. Without love there is no hope for the future. Whose to say what's right or wrong? Thing become corrupt.
Tammy read this hub please and get some truth from it: https://hubpages.com/education/The-Pledge-of-Alleg...
The God from the beginning. The God of love. The God that old Great leaders loved. God does not cause suffering. It is brought on by situations, bad choice, our ancestors, and our own free will. God is the God of a second, a relief from suffering.
Tammy if only that were true. There are countless instances where (God ordered the killings) of men, women, children, and infants according to the bible. After saying "Thy shall not kill." http://www.evilbible.com/Murder.htm
Because something isn't visible doesn't mean it don't exist. The wind blows and you can't see it. Germs and disease are all around and you can' t see it.
When some kids today see no hope they pickup a gun and shoot up schools. But if they was familiar with the God of love, who is hope, through prayer, they would see a way out. The God who some of the greatest leaders loved.
There is no evidence to suggest that prayer in schools has any impact on the rate of school shootings. Bullying and weapon accessibility are tangible problems we can actually work on.
Dashingscorpio, God has killed people for disobedience. (Warning comes before destruction) God is not like man. He has standard of love he wants us to follow. Which some laws we go by in the USA is as it is in the holy bible.(killing, stealing, etc..
Tammy how do you know these kids that pick up guns do not know or have not been to church and are Christians themselves? Do not judge others that way. You DON'T know this. Division of Chruch and State was for a specific reason.
Tammy you said in one comment: "The God of love. ...God does not cause suffering" What did infants, children, and animals do to deserve to be slaughtered? I don't believe God killed them but (men did) using their God as an excuse!
