    Separation of church and state.

    My hosted family brought this to my attention when I got home.... They lost thier home in lavalette, but were curious as to what folks thought. Now knowing that some folks are very black and white about even christmas decorations on public property, I am interested in thier feelings on the following:

    There is no "Seperation of Church and State" clause.

    I'm assuming the Lavalette School is a public school...am I correct?

    If not, then I see nothing wrong with a private school dealing with a church for a location and asking their member families for donations.

    If I am correct, then the issue of Christmas decorations is moot because the school won't be located on public property. In respect to asking for donations...again, I see nothing wrong here. I'm sure the school has taken an extreme hit by the storm and everyone from the school on up to the State level is being stressed. Citizens should help if they can.

    It's just a building. Very kind of them to allow the school to use it. Was there anything else?

    We have NO state sponsored or supported religion. The Constitution forbids it. You call that anything you like, some call it "separation of church and state". So what?

    Good to see you being pragmatic about it... hopefully your ilk should they choose to participate, agree.

    You really do need to grow up. There is no such thing as "a liberal" or "a conservative". I have no "ilk" as everyone to the right of YOU does not think exactly the same.
    This shit is stupid and everyone here, on some level, knows it. It's just American laziness. Seperate everyone into two camps, give them convenient labels such as "liberal" or "conservative" or Democrat & Republican, tell each other what "they" believe and how everything is "their" fault.
    Easy, simple-fucking-minded way to avoid as much rational thinking and taking responsibility as possible.
    Shit man, WE did this, WE allow it to happen. We deserve the corrupt and stupid leadership we have been getting from both the major parties for fucking years now.
    We're left with nothing but every few years getting to decide WHICH asshole will fuck us the least. Hell the Democrats WILL fuck us, but at least they will use lube. The Republicans would think that was a waste of good money and would pull our hair just for the meanness.

    There's really not enough information go to on here. The question, even for the strict seperationists on this issue, is the presence of religious symbolism where school is being conducted. Without pictures or a description, it's hard to know what's going on there. But honestly, on a temporary basis, there's not much to complain about. The issue would be moot long before any suit would be decided.
