    I wonder WHERE in the Bible did God create "rights" or inalienable rights for us Avatar? I can't find them anywhere, yet we keep saying in our Declaration of Independence that Nature's God, or the Creator did such.....?

    This is NOT Biblical teachings as far as I can discern...and appears to be man-made in the guise of God?

    I don't want my church teaching my kid about politics or my kid's school teaching him about religion.

    We exist therefore we are somehow created...The meaning of the phrase is not dependent upon a belief in God at all.

    LOL they are trying to counter the liberal agenda that has infiltrated the public school system. Good Luck with that the teachers unions have WAY MORE MONEY, INFLUENCE, AND PEOPLE than these guys :lol:.

    Kudos for trying to keep the truth alive though.

    Would you prefer a Jonathan Edwards, Sinners in the hands of an Angry God style awakening or a Jesuit Inquistion style awakening?

    Nothing new here. For the whole time I have been alive, there have been people trying to take us back to some place in time that really never existed. But we continue to evolve, and society continues to change and confound the efforts of the social Luddites.
