Runemang-"Public school is not a "private setting""

No, but Private school IS a "private setting".

And this petittion is not differentiating between the two. As it is already against the law to teach creationism in public school, this petition is not aimed at public school

Technically, the governemnt has no say so in the teachings at private and religious school.

But, obviously, this administration doesn't really care if it oversteps those boundaries or even breaks the law.

"Ham also told CP that he considered the petition "frivolous" and "silly," as well as showcasing an intolerance against Christians who want to teach biblical creation in a private setting."

Public school is not a "private setting" (that would be private school ... think about it for a minute). I would not support a ban on creationism/ID in private schools. That's their choice to teach it, and parents choice to send their kids there. Public school? ... abso-dratin-lutely not. Science is not 100% fact, it`s theories that we continue to explore evidence that proves AND disproves those theories. Creationism and ID say "cuz the Bible says so ... period ... so shut up", which is not substantial evidence to call anything factual to even show up in a public school classroom. Keep it in your private schools, keep it in your home, your church, your Sunday School ... if you want your kids to learn it and they`re NOT, you`ve got no one to

To all you f***tard liberal haters, I never said we should eliminate pubic FUNDING for education, just eliminate government owned and operated schools. Private schools are proven to provide a MUCH higher quality education at a MUCH lower cost than government schools, particularly unionized schools in Democrat-controlled districts.

We should fund parents, not unionized liberal idiots.

Gerry1of1-"So to answer your question, when you mentioned it you brought the topic up. "

Well, seeing as when I mentioned it I did not have in mind, nor mention, insurance nor Obamacare, and as seeing what is meant by what I say is not determined by what Fox News claims, then when I mentioned it I did not bring up insurance or Obamacare.

Got a few more loops you want to jump through in an attempt to link your incorrect inferrance to what was writtin?

Sleepyhallow-"It doesn't matter that EVERY Economist will tell you that an educated population"

I thought we were talking about Public education. Public education has nothing to do with an educated population.
