This was passed along to me and I thought it worth posting ~~Rock.~~


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 the attached 

 


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      

 

 
Jesus said,
'If you are ashamed of me,
I will be ashamed of you before my Father.'

a cry of youth not only for inclusion of god, but for someone to set standards and stick to them-kids rebell against them but crave and need them

interesting article
Reviewed by Kathy Armijo 11/18/2007
Each time I read this, it just makes me mad that one so young can already see the "writing on the wall." For those who believe in Him, this change/legacy is unacceptable, but "the squeeky wheel is what gets greased."
As a nation, have we no pride at all for what this country was built on?

God bless you. Kathy
