District of US Rep Goodlatte from Roanoke- the RINO point guy for writing new immigration laws to let in as many democrat-voting foreigners as possible. A year ago his Staunton office was quite unapologetic about 'the progress' he was working to implement.

Folks in Lexington, Staunton and Roanoke either didn't know this guy is a weasel or they don't mind it - couldn't figure that one out. Maybe it was he was born and schooled a Yankee and figured his WnL law degree allowed him to snooker folks in the VA-6th.

While perhaps a Social Lounge thread, would think of more interest to VA voters.

The SD head honcho is doubling down. Waiting for the school teacher to cover christian calligraphy when they cover that part of world geography that is the European Continent...western part that is.

Not holding my breath.

They also covered writing from other cultures when those units were studied and have been doing so for years. The women who made a stink about this doesn't even have children in that school, she home schools.
Let's stop islamophobic rantings and concentrate on our gun rights.

Why is this thread here? It has nothing to do with guns or open carry.

Agree the General Discussion forum might fit for non-OC nature, but then again given reduced OC state of VA due to recent PC-Liberal trends in that state, citizens of VA might be warned to connect so dots.

Tell that to the folks of peaceable town of San Bernadino. Religion of peace just increased peace for what - 16 + 26 residents?

We can walk and chew bubblegum at the same time.

I wonder if you would chastise a non-gun owner for harping on how gun owners are treated by the state.

I think the writing is beautiful.

Is a system of putting thoughts down on and communicating on paper somehow now wrong?
Please do not boil down this issue to the script only. This issue has been clearly articulated by the offended, it is not the script that offends but the meaning that is conveyed by the script.

Would this school minion/superintendent task/approve of the children to undergo a baptism so as to learn/experience other religious ceremonies? I think not.

The school wasn't forcing the children to convert to or accept Islam. It was a writing exercise. Some folks just look for sh!t to get them riled up. Life isn't worth living to them unless they can hate someone. Must get tiring.

You have a point. I may also get concerned if it was any religious script.

I have no problem if it is script equating to "See Jane run".

And a recreation of a baptism, on school time and property, is nothing but a short amount of time in a pool...no?

Looney liberals are dangerous, with looney liberals who claim to be gun owners being the most dangerous of looney liberals.

How does this issue, in the op, relate to OC => gun rights? How about a state institution clearly violating their precious "separation of church/state." Again we are distracted by the fact before us. We decry state overreach but focus on script as if the script is the overreach.

Sad commentary on our ability to focus on the facts.

Is OC allowed for Christians in nations governed under Sharia law? How about gun ownership? Since Sharia does not recognize a secular government, only the rule of Islam, I think 2A let alone OC, is anathema to Shahada - the first step to conversion.

If you believe this was a simple calligraphy lesson, I have a special OC license I can sell you cheap the next time you visit NYC.

as you can notice several folk stated this does not relate to OC/gun rights etc. no logical response was forth coming.

OC4ME...how is a local community high school considered a state institution let alone violating separation of church and state?

again, much todo about nothing...
