Society Has No Clue

    hitalotposted 7 years ago

    A sirene blared throughout the busy street !

    Still a young child sought to make a name for himself,

    Through the vast pipeline we learned a different thought persuasion;
    ~

    One needed rest on some long awaited vacation;

    In the distance a Pullman car drives through !
    Face the facts then smell the aroma of the coffee;
    Eat a lot of fresh fruit;
    Grapefruit helps eliminate some belly fat !
    ~

    Through a tea leafed branded ivy dew chair;

    We long to make a big difference !

    Some may even dream to care,

    A powerful shoulder to cry on !
    ~

    The fashonable cry of some helpless passerby;

    To store up enough energy just to make it through ?
    Some have bit off more then they can actually seem to chew,
    Just ask God he will tell you what you all need to do !
    Others simply haven't a single solitary clue ?

      I think the clues are out there, and there are many good people who have more than "a clue." I personally don't choose to congregate with many who don't have a clue.  I elect to associate with people who like believing that the clues will be revealed, if not already known. In other words, it's the people I surround myself with. They share all kinds of clues that are encouraging to me.

      This is from a wise A$$ man !
      What I meant was in today's society our culture has become way too desensitized from right and wrong;
      Today, many have accepted the anything goes way !
      I'm not sure if it's from what the counter culture movement left us,
      Rather, we as a nation need to get back to prayer.
      Personally I'm a Catholic with a strong belief in Jesus Christ.
      When I said society has no clue it clearly meant that we as a nation have turned our backs on God.
      Now is the time to repent and come back to our first love.
      Thank you kindly,

            You want religion in schools, then stay out of America.

            Religion has no place in schools, unless the school is religion based. You go to school to learn real things that are helpful. Not to be delusional about life.

            Keep religion out of schools. It has no place.

              I believe America should be truly free if it claims freedom! And denying a person to pray in their school if they want is not being truly allowing freedom!

              I disagree with this.... but that is my right!

                Order is for school and no foolishness such as praying should take place. It would only give students another tool to use against the teacher.

                Your argument is false. School is for learning and gaining knowledge. You want to create stupid kids?

                Your off your rocker.

                  I don't think it's nice to say people are "off their rocker" when they are clearly just stating how they feel! I realize your beliefs are far different than mine but I do not say you are off your rocker! It's your business how you feel! Making remarks about someone says something about the type of person you are... if someone doesn't agree with your beliefs then they must be crazy!

                  My argument is not false... it is not true freedom if one cannot pray in schools! It should be their right just as it should be someone's right not to pray!

                  I would agree if they prayed while being taught! There is a time and place for everything! I am saying if the person wants to pray over their food before they eat then they should be able to. It's called freedom Cagsil! I don't think they should start praying right in the class... that would interfere with their learning!

                  In the way you speak... it is okay to take away someone's freedom if it agrees with your beliefs! But if someone took away something you believe strongly in then you would object! That is double standard my friend!

                    Can't we all pray silently, quietly in our own way without putting on a show? Colossions 4:6 says something about that...  "Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person." (New American Standard Bible)
                    We do not need to be pushy about how we believe. It seems we have more influence with others when we are not.

                  cagsil, you need Jesus in your life. When prayer was in school, none of us didn't hear of all this violence in school. Now, very often we hear on the news of children bringing guns to school, shooting, and stabbing other students. Prayer is powerful and it makes a major difference.

                    When I went to school, we had daily prayer time before school, and even a bible study class before school to all who wanted to attend.  It was not mandated and there were many students who didn't want to participate so they stayed out on the playground, till the bell rang.  No one was forced to join in, infact they were not in the room at all.

                    It didn't hurt anybody, and I don't see the harm in it.  It was time set aside before school began.

                    "When prayer was in school, none of us didn't hear of all this violence in school."

                    I call BS on this. The worst incident of school violence occurred in Bath, Michigan in 1927. 43 people killed in a deliberately set explosion, 39 of them were students.

                    Institutionalized prayer and religious instruction were not removed from schools until 1949.

                    Plus, in 19th century America, especially in rural areas, the schoolteacher often was threatened and attacked by the older students, who sometimes succeeded in running the schoolmaster out of town. Student-on-student violence was not uncommon, either, though the weapons used have changed from fists to sticks to chains to knives to guns.

                    And then there was the good ol' practice of corporal punishment, which in my book totally counts as violence: one person hitting another, sometimes with a weapon (like a switch or a paddle).

                    In fact, you could even make the argument that violence in schools was even more common (though admittedly less deadly) back when institutionalized prayer was allowed.

                  There is no law forbidding anyone from praying in school. The law merely forbids school-sanctioned prayers which would place undue pressure on children and seem to validate delusional tendencies.

                The word "god" was added to the pledge I believe in the 30s could have been 40s but I cannot remember off the top of my head.

                As far as schools go, they stopped staying the Pledge when I was still in elementary school.  My friend says that they put it back a few years back but I haven't seen it. 

                We do not say the Pledge in the school I work at but I don't know which states do.

    Wow, Prayer in schools is the only way to ensure religious freedom? Really?
    Whose prayers, what religion?
    The only way to ensure religious freedom is to keep it out of the schools. Once they start allowing prayer in school the choices of those who do not believe or who believe differently are being infringed upon. How is that freedom?
    Our children have no choice about attending school. We cannot simply opt out, therefor allowing prayer in school would be subjecting many students to teachings that are in disagreement with what they or their families believe.

    I remember doing morning prayer and saying the pledge of allegiance in school.  And I remember when it was banned.

       I believe that that did have an affect on student behavior.

       What I think had the greatest impact upon student behavior is when parents started going to the school to beat up the teacher that "Unfairly?" punished their child.

      But the worst cause of violence by school age children began when parents had to worry about going to jail for spanking their own children.

       Children were given too much power by the state.
    At about this same time is when POT made its way onto the school playgrounds.

      All of that happened in a short period of time.


      It seems as though out children have been undermined.

      I have often wondered how many of these children's parents were high on LSD at the time of their conception???

      Which individual thing was the most damaging? 
                we will never know ??
      Maybe these changes made life on earth better??

          The locomotives are so loud that no one hears the traffic controllers voice.

           But they will all blame the traffic controller.
