    New School Prayer

    New School Prayer". Pretty much hits the nail on the head.


    Now I sit me down in school
    Where praying is against the rule
    For this great nation under God
    Finds mention of Him very odd.
    If Scripture now the class recites,
    It violates the Bill of Rights.
    And anytime my head I bow
    Becomes a Federal matter now.

    Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
    That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
    The law is specific, the law is precise.
    Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

    For praying in a public hall
    Might offend someone with no faith at all
    In silence alone we must meditate,
    God's name is prohibited by the state.

    We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
    And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
    They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
    To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

    We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
    And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
    It's "inappropriate" to teach right from wrong,
    We're taught that such "judgments" do not belong.

    We can get our condoms and birth controls,
    Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
    But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
    No word of God must reach this crowd.
    It's scary here I must confess,
    When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
    So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
    Should I be shot; My soul please take!
    Amen

    I'm not too up to date on exactly what is banned from public school. Can students no longer wear a cross? Can they not do a silent prayer in studyhall?

    The above isn't sarcasm, I really do not know what is allowed and what is not. What exactly are they prohibited from doing?

    It's just a satirical piece that some people got in email. Orange, what occurs in the schools on a daily basis probably varies from state to state and district to district, until someone challenges it. This social satire is probably a general response to the whole "under God" phrase in the pledge that has been under fire lately.
