      •  Yes, the stupid is strong on facebook (6+ / 0-)

        some of my facebook "friends" linked to some photo that says

        Dear God
        Why do you allow so much violence in our schools?
        signed a concerned student

        Dear concerned student,
        I'm not allowed in schools.
        God.

        I just ignore it, it is not worth starting something but it really ticked me off.  I found that offensive and ridiculous there is no connection whatsoever to religion in schools and violence and it is not as if kids are forbidden from praying, I didn't want to say something regrettable so I said nothing at all.

          whether or not to blast them.  it is someone my husband works with so i am leaning toward no.  i have even considered a personal message explaining the stupid of what he posted (with facts/numbers ie japan/sweden/britain etc) but just can't bring myself to wade into the conversation with someone who is obviously an idiot.

          All I write is "He never was , and he shouldn't be in our schools. The people and place for your child to be taught about God is from the parents and Churches".

          1. So that omnipotence thing was just PR?
          2. 1 out of 5 Americans are not religious, but we're still upset about this tragedy.  Dividing us along religious belief lines is not helpful.
          3. Let's talk about the real problem: banning assault weapons.  This is a distraction.

          Yeah, it ticked me off a lot.

    •  Yeah, exactly (1+ / 0-)

      You'd think you wouldn't hear the "don't talk about taking away my guns" line on DK, but dang, you do.
