Aaagh. Agh.

Each class starts with a prayer, for guidance. For wisdom.

Studies show, he says, that 97 percent of Americans believe in God. Only 3 percent are atheists.

Aaaaagh. Agh!

Engage bitching about homosexuals raising kids! About little kids in bed with gay men! About lesbians not being able to TEACH THEIR DAUGHTERS how to LOVE A MAN!

"Father," he begins as the students bow their heads, "We want to be clothed with grace. We want to be clothed with humility. . . . There is nothing in us that should be self-righteous, that should be judgmental."


"There has always been debate over whether the government is a secular institution or a divine institution," he said.

This gov't as a divine institution?!

Kids these days.
