^ Don't talk to quickly - it's already happening in the name of "diversity"

don't you think we should?

if we are going to care about Anthony Sciubba not being able to freely express his religious convictions in every venue available?

I certainly don't think so in both cases.

Are you serious?

You really can't differentiate between a student being able to express his personal beliefs and school sponsored and taxpayer funded foot baths and prayer rugs?

Come on now, you're just giving ammunition to the right wing fundies.

For every school that improperly denies student religious expression, there's at least 10 that improperly ban "Gay-Straight Alliances."

Once that ratio is narrowed, I'll start caring more about this thread topic.

After reading all of this discussion, I think this is right on. The school was wrong to change it, especially considering he paid for the ad. The word God isn't vulgar, it's someone's faith. And deep, with all due respect, it sounds like there's more whining coming from the other side. He has every right to express his faith. This fear of conflicting with the separation of church and state is so absurd these days. Martha's right in her points. And why is it that he's a Christian, it's turning into a political discussion. What if he said "Buddha," instead of "God"? I have a tendency to think people would be up in arms here in FYM, as they should be. I would be against that, too. I know the teacher said there's many different religions, so he wanted to take all spiritual references out, but that's not right either. It's an important part of everyone's life, so why edit it – especially if they paid for it! And A_Wanderer, as far as the yearbooks being paid with tax dollars – as far as I know, at least locally here, that's PTO money, locally raised funds and local advertising dollars. Maybe it's not the case with this, but I know it is here. It's not funded by the state.
