How can you say this while in turn not having read one word of her paper? All you know is that it mentioned "God". Does this make it a load of garbage?


I believe the paper was a load of garbage based on it's premise...the belief that religion is vital in running a nation. Religion, in the past and the present, has actually been the greatest source of division among mankind ever divised...any paper based upon this premise is, quite frankly, going to be full of tripe.

QUOTE
Actually there was several laws that are base of religion in many nation.


Actually, you'll probably find that the laws which you believe are based on religion, are actually simply based on the social norms for any given social mammal...they're not in our code of laws because of religion, but rather our code of laws and religion share them based entirerly on the same source.

Every single society, including those who predate christianity and the ten commandments, have had laws against the like of murder and theft. Religion has nothing to do with it...it simply happens that a working code is in place to allow large groups of any given animal to function. By and large, this code is actually hard coded into our behaviour, which is why the vast majority of people are repulsed by such crimes.

The teacher was dumb. Although I don't think we should involve religion in our schools. I mean if one believes different that is ok. I mean what if he preached about "no God exists" this is wrong also. I mean we don't discuss things that offend others. Church and the home is the prper place. I mean the child was clearly trying to piss the teacher off., Well  it worked and she got an F.

1) Church and public schools should be kept seperated.
2) She was correct in saying religion held an imortant role in the founding of our nation.
3) You have no right to take away someone's freedom given to them in the constitution just because you are a teacher.


The teacher told her not to mention her beliefs, but she did anyway. *applause*


Some of you people need to learn some things are more important than others.  Example: standing up for what you believe in versus a stupid college paper.

She has the right idea. thumbsup.gif

Yeah but what if she fails the whole class because she wants to be a rebel. I am sure she could have chosen a different route. even though the history of our country is based on God.

I don't know how the teacher got to be a teacher. It sounds like he/she has the mentality of a 12 year old.

  • you want to know the answer? Hell, I'm still working on the question!

Posted 07 July 2005 - 06:26 PM

So, if a teacher/professor gives an assignment, with guidelines and parameters, the student should be free to disregard those guidelines and parameters because they disagree?

An example would be, say a discussion on the effects of de-criminalizing marijuana from a medical and legal standpoint, and refraining from personal and or religious opinions.  Would a student whose paper basically read "I think that legalizing pot is wrong because my religious leader tells me so", meet those criteria?

My thoughts exactly.

Why tiptoe quietly through life just to arrive safely at death?

By that arguement, do you people harping on about this girl's freedom of speech feel that, had she been a Nazi, and had written a paper about how the Jews are the downfall of society, and that zionist conspiracies must be stamped out, that she should have passed with flying colours, regardless of whether or not anything she said in the paper was true?

It doesn't honestly matter what she chose to write about...she specifically chose to go against the criteria of the paper....that, and the premise for her paper remains a load of rubbish. While it's all very touching that you're leaping to the defence of a fellow christian (or something like that), it doesn't change the fact that she failed with good reason.

The sad truth is that she would have probably gotten a better grade had she chosen to write about this instead of God.
