Religion = Guilt free hate?

vouchers are an out and out attack on public schools
and handout to religious intolerance
This I agree with completely.

It depends on which state. I know in Ohio private schools, even religion afiliated ones, can and often do, receive public funds. The uses of the funds are limited (but I forget for what right now), but they still can get them.

But if schools do get public funding, or don't accept it, they can pretty much do as they please.


(oh and I just noticed that damned typo in my first post... Christian, damn it, it was supposed to be Christian!)

It's aim is equality.

I guess .

I dunno. Am I weird for thinking that the events of the past few weeks would be kind of a clue or something that life is far too short to get all caught up in this kind of hatred?

I find myself thinking this as well. I actually have a cousin in Melbourne, so I have family there. They lived in both the U.S. and Australia and then chose to live in Australia.

It still puzzles me that the school punished the child because of the lifestyle of the parents.

Heh, I'd have no problem living in Australia .

The spider thing Angela referred to may be a bit of a problem for me, though ...think I could permanently hire an exterminator to live with me?

I don't think I could stand the cold. I need a fairly warm climate.
