How may one be offended by anything in which they DO NOT BELIEVE.

Kudos to all the opinionators. Especially Mr Bricker’s forthright rip of Mr Borgens comments. High dudgeon indeed. ROFL. HAGE

Great jobs, Mr. Boyles, and Mr. Burkholder.  “Dirty Harry” Reid is not in a position to be spouting about a “nation of laws”.  Were that true, there wouldn’t be 12 to 20 million illegal’s in our country.  Of course, “laws” is only part of the equation - once passed, they have to be enforced.

Mr. Bricker seems unaware that proselyting in a public school is quite different than an article in a newspaper. McCallister was talking about Christianity and it’s affect on teaching in a public school setting. Was he overtly seeking converts to Christianity or new members for a church? Either in the article or presumably as a teacher? The invitation to a religious program at a church done in the setting of a public school classroom was most definitely proselyting. It was not done as a public service. What was the purpose of Bricker’s letter other than to see his name in print?

What is “proselyting?” One can find it difficult to criticize when they are not on topic. Mr Borgen uses the term more than once. What is it?

For Mr.Sanders, proselytizing is the act of trying to convert someone from one creed, party, belief,etc to another. The church invitation that was offered in a public school to attend a religious program at their church was meant to familiarize attendees with their church and its teachings. It was inappropriate in a public school setting.

Oh you meant proselytizing and not proselyting. I surely know the meaning of proselytizing. My thought, since you stated it so many times that.you were seriously lacking in more than one area.

Sanders, have you ever made a typo? Don’t you have better things to do than being a troll nuisance?
