"Yes, there is more to it. It is completely inappropriate for them to do such things during school hours, while we are still paying them. It is also somewhat inappropriate for an authority figure affiliated with the school to be involved with this,…"

"Other versions of heaven. Well, there are no animals up there (wherever up there is?) even though the old pesterment has spirit animals all over the sky. Live people are up there coz they didn't have to die, and they got translated. (Or beamed…"

"To xians, religious tolerance = xian tolerance. I just love asking them about the other versions of heaven, and they say "that's ridiculous". That's where the fun starts. "

"In retrospect, the ideal response to "if a kid wants to start a Lego discussion, he/she can do that too," would be along the lines of, "Great! How about the Junior Muslims then? What about the Young Atheists? I can't wait to tell…"

"...Maybe she teaches the anatomy & physiology of Jesus... I bet that's it!  Perhaps it's a class in stage make-up -- you get a beard and Semitic features, maybe some faux piercing of the extremities..."

"Dougibert - Lucille Fur. Laughed out loud at that one. Reminds me of the Robert De Niro character in Angel Heart - Mr. Louis Cipher. "

"Your principal is lieing and also covering, hoping that none of this comes to legal actions. If that happens it appears that the principal wants to be thought of equally well by all even though he allowed it to happen. Politics at its best."

"What's your point? I was referring to the religious teachings outside of classroom hours."

"Why do the religious say Jesus was such a nice guy even though he mandated burning non-believers and told people to cut off hands, feet, eyes and sexual organs? What a disgrace. Whoever this teacher is I would put a lawsuit on her."

"Dougibert, the dangers of questioning the powers in the bible belt is a very real thing. I'm the only open atheist in these parts.  When the coach of my, eight year old, g-daughters basketball team lead them in prayer, on the court…"

"I would, too ... and I'd bet you a cup of coffee that the kid's parents put him up to it.  That said, the principal is still your point person.  Personally, I'd tell him point-blank that the activity in question is in…"

"Yes, go to some of the meetings. Knowing the folks on the others side, and their views, is important. I'm an independent (and a progressive) who regularly votes Democratic and, here in the veterans retirement where I live, I go to most meetings…"

"Good! He responded politely, that's at least something. You spoke up and were acknowledged. Of course, Legos aren't nearly as insidious, though they could be a religion on their own...... Maybe you should join in the meetings? Say, "I…"
