A QUESTION OF OPINION

I am spending a lot of time sitting or lying on the bed, reading stuff I printed off the internet and so much is changing, faster that I expected.

I have a question and I would like to know what the action will accomplish in the public?

An Illinois high school association has a policy that bans Christian schools offering a prayer or any religious message over their public address systems when they host association events on their own property.
How does this sound to you?

As of now the host school has control over where attendees park their vehicles, and where they sit in the stands, and who sings the national anthem, and providing concession stands for food and refreshments. They have had control over what is broadcast on the public address system.

What are the thoughts on censoring their free speech rights on their own school property?

This is a true case in Illinois.

I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world;
I would delude their minds into thinking that they had come from man's effort, instead of God's blessings;
I would promote an attitude of loving things and using people, instead of the other way around;
I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state revenue;
I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes to leadership
;
I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies;
I would make it socially acceptable to take one's own life, and invent machines to make it convenient;
I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that the life of animals are valued more than human beings;
I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His name was grounds for a lawsuit;


I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and target the young, and I would get sports heroes to advertise them;
I would get control of the media, so that every night I could pollute the mind of every family member for my agenda;
I would attack the family, the backbone of any nation.
I would make divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable. If the family crumbles, so does the nation;
I would compel people to express their most depraved fantasies on canvas and movie screens, and I would call it art;
I would convince the world that people are born homosexuals, and that their lifestyles should be accepted and marveled;
I would convince the people that right and wrong are determined by a few who call themselves authorities and refer to their agenda as politically correct;
I would persuade people that the church is irrelevant and out of date, and the Bible is for the naive;
I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that prayer is not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are optional;
I guess I would leave things pretty much the way they are.

I found this interesting. We will miss Paul Harvey.
I just noticed he wrote this at one o'clock in the morning !!
