    Isn't it worderful how religion divides people?


    One nation indivisible, one town torn in two - The Boston Globe

    The dispute was not discussed there, but its repercussions continue to hover over the town.

    "We're all a little afraid to talk, because nobody knows where they stand," Demers said. "I think we're forgetting our kids."

    Retta Dunlap, chairwoman of the Woodbury School Board, said the panel has no plans to revisit the issue, after a unanimous vote recently to support the foyer option. "It's done, as far as the board is concerned," she said.

    Andrews said the school has much more important business to conduct than a prolonged debate over the Pledge of Allegiance. "Let's not put all this energy on saying the Pledge," he said. "Let's focus on getting kids ready for the 21st century."

    Tedesco, for his part, said he has not finished. "This discussion is not over," he vowed. "There is more to be said."

    Meh ... just an effect of people who are not of one religion finally getting tired of the others being so pushy.
