Welcome to Parenting Little Heathens

Hi moms and dads. Welcome to the parenting without religion group here at A|N. Please feel free to post an introduction, tell us about yourself or if you'd rather not, just jump right into any discussion.

Before you get started I would like you to be familiar with our Posting Rules and Guidelines. This will help clarify what this group is and what topics are appropriate or inappropriate.

Also, you might be interested in our list of atheist related parenting resources list. This is a work in progress, if you've found something you think is a good fit please post a reply and I'll see about adding it.

If at any time you would like to contact me, the easiest way is to send a private message through my page. However, in order to send any member a PM you must first be their friend.

Thank you for joining the group, I hope you enjoy being here.

-Dawn K

what's CM?

How can anyone possibly think that's okay in a public school! Yikes. Will be interested in reading more about this.
Comment by Oprah's Vajayjay on December 22, 2009 at 5:25pm
Found this on CM:

"Middle school in KY on Friday separated the Jewish kids and Jehovah's Witness kids from the Christian kids: Jews and JW's sat in the office while the Christian kids went to the gym to sing carols and religious hymns about Christmas. Have these people no shame? Those Jewish and JW kids have now been isolated and made in...to second-class citizens. One Atheist student pretended to be Christian, so not to be singled out.



(This has not been brought to the attention of the media yet. It was phoned into the American Atheist Association by an upset parent.)"

Faith, The wall isn't a great place to have a discussion. There's no threading so it can be difficult to follow. The wall wasn't designed to be a discussion area, that's why groups have the discussion forum.

Wall isn't very conducive to discussion. If this needs to be discussed further start a post on the discussion board please. Thank you.

I agree. I don't see what the capitalist poster has to do with parenting. It feels like propaganda to me and it's not appropriate here. Which is why I'm going to delete it.

Faith, yes we certainly should be concerned about environmental issues but they aren't directly parenting issues and as such don't particularly belong here.
