Religion More Important than Education to Wackos

In Oklahoma, a state in Jesusland, voters carried out their immoral views by denying education funding over the display of christian symbols. A former republiscum legislator campaigned for this issue claiming it was a way to retain rights. What rights I wonder?
I find this type of ignorance appalling. Christian wackos are what is wrong in the world today and their ignorant view of life and their blindness to reality only further the fact that, they are truly wackos and do not understand the teaching of Jesus Christ.
Separation of church and State means just that wackos. Keep your bullshit beliefs out of the government and out of our schools. And while you work on that read some Matthew.

Okla. Voters Show Fury at Nativity Removal
December 16, 2004 1:26 PM EST

MUSTANG, Okla. - Voters incensed over a superintendent's decision to remove a Nativity scene from an elementary school Christmas program took out their anger at the ballot box, helping to defeat bond measures worth nearly $11 million.

Tuesday's rejection of the two measures - one of which would have paid for construction of an elementary school - marked the first time in more than a decade that voters in this bedroom community west of Oklahoma City denied additional funds for their school district. More>>>

I can't help but wonder, what have they accomplished? Wouldn't it have been more productive (as well as befitting) for them to just have burned the guy at the stake? Or at least simply fired him? Talk about biting off your nose to spite your face.

Hi Wanda,
I don't understand why people like this put their child's needs behind their misguided beleif system. Maybe some of them who read this will take the hint and read some has Jesus' true explanation.
And I have never opened a bible in my life and understand what it says better than they.
But, good news, this subject is starting to burn people out...even the religious ones. It's only a matter of time now.

I think you're wrong there lib, the left simply doesn't get it. Most of the people in this country consider themselves christians (myself included) and feel under attack by people such as yourself (and others) that equate religion with "whacko" and "uneducated". They (we) have what you do not possess, faith. Jesus didn't teach separation of church and state, we do. People are free to express themselves to their elected officials in any way the deem fit. If that is at the ballot box, and the message was received loud and clear, then good for them. Did you ever stop to think the bond might have been too much for property owners?

I don't infer that all religious people are wacko or uneducated but, there exists, in our society, an element of religious people, that place a value on their faith over the welfare of their children and that is wrong.
You can assume I don't have faith but, I will point out that because I am not religious or a follower of any organized religion,(I followed Native American theology) your assumption that non-christians have no faith is an example of the narrow view that the people showed in OK.
My faith is in my fellow man, not in a book that reports many things that have yet to be verified.
I agree that you can express yourself any way you want to your elected officials but, they are not free to express themselves, religiously, to you in a legal state forum. That issue alone is violated everyday under this regime.
If religion is going to be allowed in government and school functions then all religions must have their respective day observed, also. But, now, there arises another problem.
Athiests are anti-religious so, when just one atheist person is offended then, the public display of religious ideas has to be addressed. One person is just as or, more important, than a collective government. That is what is wrong with the tyranny of this appointed regime today, individuals are being ignored over large inanimate entitys.

The bond issue could have been that it was to excessive but, like the report says, it has been the first time in years that this community has not supported it's schools.
But, increases in tax coupled with a failing economy, higher energy prices, etc. could very well have played a role in it.
But, it was not reported this way.
