    Re: Oh boy...

    In response to GreginMeffa's comment:

    A North Carolina community is embroiled in controversy after a school ordered a six-year-old girl to remove the word “God” from a poem that she was supposed to read during a Veteran’s Day ceremony.

    The girl is a first-grader at West Marion Elementary School. She was supposed to read the poem during a school assembly marking Veteran’s Day. The poem honored her two grandfathers who had served during the Vietnam War.

    “He prayed to God for peace, he prayed to God for strength,” the poem read.

    In the woods they call Rouge Bouquet

    There is a new made grave today,

    Built by never spade or pick

    Yet covered with earth 10 meters thick

    There lie many fighting men

    Dead in their youthful prime,

    Kilmer .

    Re: Oh boy...

    The school overreacted to the complaints of ONE PERSON.  The child was reading a poem not holding a sermon.  Yeah, I get the separation of church and state and all of that and I am all for it, but there are situations where a little nuance is required and certainly an instance of a person reading a poem that happens to contain the word god should not rise to a level of concern for any sensible person and the school should have showed some sack and told that person if they were offended by this one poem, by this one child, that they were welcome not to attend and that they could pull their child as well.
