    Poem read by principal sparks complaints.....This was in our weekly paper here at our hometown about a High Shool Principal.In our area.

    THE NEW SCHOOL PRAYER
    Now i sit 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 mt head i bow
    Becomes a Federal matter now.

    Our hair can be purple,orange or green,
    Thats 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,tonguesand cheeks.
    They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
    To quote the good book makes me liable.

    We can elect a pregant Senior Queen,
    And the unwed daddy, our Senior King.
    It's inappropriate to teach right from wrong,
    We're taught that such judgements 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 soulplease take.

    Yeah... I heard about this on Rush's show today....

    A lot of people felt offended by this prayer, but sometimes the truth is not such a pretty thing.
