Rick Perry: We Need a Constitutional Amendment to Allow Prayer in Schools

American theocracy
Wingnuts • Views: 24,819

Rick Perry told Fox News’s Chris Wallace this morning that if he’s elected President, one of his priorities will be a constitutional amendment “allowing our children to pray in school.”

What a pile of disingenuous rubbish. It’s utterly false that children are banned from praying in public schools; nobody stops children from praying on their own time. They simply are not required to pray — but make no mistake, forcing all children to recite Christian prayers is exactly what Rick Perry wants.

This is American theocracy in the making, folks. And Rick Perry is not alone; the Republican Party is totally in thrall to this kind of Dark Ages thinking.

The gorilla is on an island,eats bananas and has a good time all day long. He plays out there in the bushes. Some Americans find out about the gorilla and they hear how BIG he is - you know.They're very impressed with the size of the beast. So they catch the gorilla & they stick him in a boat & bring him back to the US. They show him off to everybody & make a bunch of money. ...Then they kill him ! -- The song King Kong.1968 tour Wisconsin.
