"Unfortunately, this is how most religious people do things. I bet she even calls herself a christian. Meeting face to face might not be a good idea because folks like that will do their best to martyr themselves to make anyone that believes in…"

"Being the only few people of any radical difference from the norm is hard. I'm with you in spirit, however you decide to handle this. Maybe try the ACLU? The school is violating your civil liberties to raise your child according to your ethics."

"According to http://www.religioustolerance.org/ps_pra9.htm you are on the right side of the law and have right to get her to stop. Shes breaking the law. You can sue if she doesnt stop or if she singles your kid out to blame for the lack of prayer…"

""Kids, we can't pray, all because of Keia" I think she can take further legal/policy action-especially if the principal hears about it. If it continues I think she can sue."

"I think you also have the law on your side. I would be very pissed as well and who hasnt been 'there' when youre about to explode at someones disregard for personal autonomy. You might want to go to the prinipcal or school council as well…"

"Well being more serious. Bringing this up reminds me of when I went to school in Louisiana and the teacher brought in this guy in a suit pulling red wagon full of tiny bibles. He said he was a member of the Gideon society and he proceeded to ask the…"

"If the principal is now leading a campus-wide prayer request or whatever, you need to get the really big dogs involved. They are blatantly ignoring the law. Contact the ACLU as suggested previously. >.X I went to a TX high school as well, and…"

""Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible." I used to have to say this every day in high school, and yet I had to google it to recall it. XD I've blocked it from my memory…"

"It's probably late in the game, but I for one would like to know if you're doing okay since this started. We lived in a small Colorado town and told a neighbor we were atheists (actually, she guessed it and we confirmed). not long after…"

"I agree with a previous poster about the teacher being convinced that she is doing what's best for everyone. It's easy to say "stand up for your rights", but i'm in Louisiana, and i know about backlash. I wouldn't be…"

"I must agree with what you said in the first paragraph. Labeling is something that must be done. Whether someone assumes something about me because of a specific label is not my problem!"

"This is very late, but nothing changed. In fact, the principal began telling kids to pray on the loudspeaker for all the school to hear. I've dropped the issue for now to focus on raising my daughter with enough critical thinking to realize she…"

Keia replied to Sinead Murphy's discussion Do YOU think you are superior to the religious?
"I'm not significantly smarter than I was as a christian, but I have a better understanding of knowledge which is also much more important to me than it once was. I think of things differently and more openly than I did as a theist. Does that…"

Greetings, Keia! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since June 2010. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

So what happened with your daughter's teacher?

I'm not Texan and I hope to move out of this state someday, so I don't really consider it my fight either, but I do try to get as far away from the school as possible so I don't raise my blood pressure.

Hi
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8000 good friends.

A useful group is “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion....) with its 125 discussions and numerous video films.

One discussion (over 70 posts) is "Proud to be Atheist".
There's much to feel good about
because atheists and humanists hold the intellectual high ground—far removed from the superstitious god believers who submit to a narrow-minded controlling clergy with their imaginary heaven and hell.
