So there's a student at my school whose father is a preacher at a local church. I live in a small town where 98% of the population is christians. He drives a car to our school that has many bible references, dates, names, all kinds of things all over it and some parents started complaining. Our school also hands out stuff with church advertisements on it because a local church basically sponsors our school. I'm very angry about all of this because it looks like the school won't do anything about it and I'm offended, so I thought I would rant a little bit. What do you think about all this? Any similarities where you live? Am I being a little dumb about this?

Eh freedom of speech, And if you school is sponsored by them and they give you money, they wont say a word
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Now I got no patience
So sick of complacence
With the D the E the F the I the A the N the C the E
Mind of a revolutionary
So clear the lane
...Whoever told you that is your enemy?

The car part, well if he isn't parking it inside the school then i don't see a problem.

Passing out church related stuff during school hours, thats a little iffy.

Manchester! I thought you'd be from the USA. If it's a church funded school what can you do?

At least your school doesn't have its own chapel...

I'm actually currently living in America. Ohio to be precise. And I'm not going to "cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it". There are laws against this. That's why I'm furious.

They can't pass out religious stuff during school hours, but if the church wants to donate money to the school they can.

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

So the fact that a guy is using his right to freedom of speech by driving around in a car "covered" in religious memorabilia pisses you off?

Same thing with the church. The aforementioned advertisements aren't commanding that you go. It's all within the boundaries of your petty laws.

Built that bridge yet?

The school is handing out religious pamphlets to convert people or garner more attention to the Church and what have you.

No. Right outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. Manchester is where my parents live. I'm currently living with my uncle. Anyway, the car is on school grounds right in the parking lot, so it shouldn't be okay, and they're sending out flyers advertising a church at our school, and that is illegal and offensive.

I assume your panties are also in a twist over the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance in our nation's schools?

Put a sticker on your car that says "Fuck the Fucking Fuckers" and park at the church. That'll show em what's up.

1. You're a retard.
2. I haven't built that bridge, because by technicalities, they ARE in fact illegal. I already checked it out.
3. I don't have a problem with the pledge of allegiance. The pledge of allegiance isn't advertising Jesus.

It's probably not advertising, but since they use "under god", Jesus gets a royalty check every month.

I don't have a link. I have family that work for the state over things like this. And "One Nation Under God" honestly doesn't bother me because it doesn't have an address, a bleeding murdered man on a cross, and an advertisement.
