My 90 year old parents said they never had prayer in their schools

Wasn't that just something they had in southern states? I did a quick search on Google but didn't see anything right off hand. For anyone around before teacher lead prayer in school was outlawed in 1963, what was your experience?

By the way. My Dad grew up in Nevada and my Mom lived in a number of states growing up including MT, CO, ND, WI, AZ etc.

By the way! There is still plenty of prayer in schools today, right before every test.


Editing to add this:

Haven't Public Schools Always Had Prayer?
At the time the U.S. Supreme Court issued its 1962 and 1963 decrees against school-sponsored prayers and bible-reading, it is estimated religious observances were unknown in about half of the nation's public schools.

Anyone bringing up Chicago's high gun violence rate show them this


Snip:

For instance, an NPR fact check of the White House talking point noted that Chicago is close to the borders of two states — Wisconsin and Indiana — that have weak gun laws. A 2014 report from the city of Chicago noted that 60 percent of guns used to commit crimes in Chicago from 2009 to 2013 originated outside of Illinois, and Indiana and Wisconsin were two of the biggest sources of recovered guns.5 And Illinois is not alone.

Aztec High School, New Mexico shooting in December was an alt-right Trump fan too

We are lucky Atchison wasn't able to get hold of an AR-15 with a bump firing add-on or a lot more kids probably would have been killed.

Snip:

Atchison's online activity included posting pro-Hitler and pro-Trump thoughts on alt-right forums white nationalist websites like The Daily Stormer under such usernames as "Future Mass Shooter" and "Adam Lanza", and joking about school shootings, in particular the Columbine High School massacre. He also posted about his frustration with life in rural New Mexico and bleak career prospects.[13][14]

Edit to add another link: New Mexico School Shooter Had Secret Life on Pro-Trump White-Supremacy Sites
For years before William Edward Atchison killed two students and himself, he lived a shadow life online—one full of crude alt-right memes and praise for school shooters.

In real life, William Edward Atchison—people called him Bill—lived in a little yellow house with his parents, about a mile away from the Giant gas station where he worked and from Aztec High School, where he shot and killed two students and then himself last Thursday.

At the murder scene, police found a thumb drive with a note that read, “If things go according to plan, today would be when I die. I go somewhere and gear up, then hold a class hostage and go apeshit, then blow my brains out.”

He wrote “work sucks, school sucks, life sucks. I just want out of this shit.”

“It’s a shame he wasn’t on our radar,” San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christesen told Fox News last week. “I don’t think he had anything so much as a traffic ticket.”

And yet online, the 21-year-old New Mexico resident lived a prolific life as a white supremacist, pro-Trump meme peddler who was most known for his obsession with school shooters. For a half-decade, Atchison spent most of his days online, repeatedly posting threats of violence and cries for help.

Tax the Rich: An animated fairy tale

Been thinking about this much of the day. I would put money on Mueller indicting Trump


The reason why is because what is occurring with Trump and Russia is likely extremely serious and the FBI knows it is. They are not taking this lightly. Treason on a epic level is going on and they are going to want to send a message that this shit need to stop pronto and heads need to roll. That is my gut feeling and I am sticking to it.
