And then what happens if its the secretary that snaps.. or the principal?

Really? Founded by and For Christians? The First Amendment explicitly forbid the establishment of any official church or creed. You are wrong, this country was not founded for Christians. Like it or leave. You also have the freedom. Read the constitution and you might learn something.
Oppressive feminism? Seriously? That's as lame as Grace's religion argument. The shooter was home schooled before this happened. He had mental issues which were causing problems between himself and his mother. Has nothing to do with oppressive feminism.
You are correct Grace in that they are OUR schools. We non-christians also pay the same taxes for those schools as you do. Why should YOUR religion be allowed in the school and not the others? There are American born Muslims, Buddhists, Jews, Pagans, Atheist, etc. also paying the same school taxes. You or your religious beliefs are no better than anyone else's and therefore to allow one, would mean allowing them all.
Are you saying you cannot have a moral core without religion? I know many many non-religious people who have very good morals, myself included. I did not need to read the Bible to know right from wrong, I did not have to attend church to know right from wrong. This is merely your opinion. So, say this shooter was raised in a religious household, how do you explain why he didn't know right from wrong? The answer is simple, this young man had mental issues, religion had nothing to do with it.
You couldn't be more wrong. It does not take religion to be taught right from wrong or that there are consequences for their actions. And my attitude toward religion has NOTHING to do with this violence. My family was not religious, I have been able to grow, learn and make up my own mind about what I choose to believe. I do know right from wrong. Do you know if the shooter was a religious person?
Perhaps it is because the parents are athiest or pagan or any other religion or just non-religious. God should not be taught in schools, that is a parents job as they see fit whether it is your Christian God or another. If a child is Christian then God is with them at school, at all times. School is not the place to force exposure of religion.
The mother is to blame that she has let her son get out of control in the first place. However, she should be commended for turning him in, knowing he needs help she cannot give him. This week is a failed robbery attempt, next week he could be successful, then the next week maybe someone gets shot. She did the right thing. His life is not wasted over a fail robbery attempt, the sentence will be very light if any. Most likely suspended and put on probation, so don't be over dramatic.
What is going to happen to the traffic on that stretch of 179? Is that the same exit for the new St. Mary's Hospital?
