    WRITTEN BY A 15 yr. Old SCHOOL KID IN ARIZONA :





    New Pledge of Allegiance (TOTALLY AWESOME) !



    Since the Pledge of Allegiance

    And

    The Lord's Prayer

    Are not allowed in most

    Public schools anymore

    Because the word 'God' is mentioned....

    A kid in Arizona wrote this:



    NEW School prayer :



    Now I sit me down in school

    Where praying is against the rule

    For this great nation under God

    Finds mention of Him very odd.

    If Scripture now the class recites,

    It violates the Bill of Rights.

    And anytime my head I bow

    Becomes a Federal matter now.

    Our hair can be purple, orange or green,

    That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.

    The law is specific, the law is precise.

    Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice..

    For praying in a public hall

    Might offend someone with no faith at all.

    In silence alone we must meditate,

    God's name is prohibited by the state.

    We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,

    And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks..

    They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.

    To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

    We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,

    And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.

    It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,

    We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.

    We can get our condoms and birth controls,

    Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.

    But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,

    No word of God must reach this crowd.

    It's scary here I must confess,

    When chaos reigns the school's a mess.

    So, Lord, this silent plea I make:

    Should I be shot; My soul please take!

    Amen

    If you aren't ashamed to do this,

    Please pass this on.

    Jesus said,

    'If you are ashamed of me,

    I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'





    Not ashamed. Pass this on.

    Yet another reason to listen to the wisdom of youth. Stay safe and pay attention because they often put us in touch with the realities of today!!!

    Good job, Bro. Jim! That's pretty much why my kids are homeschooled.
