    To Craziness...then why don't you move back to Atl? We don't need any more ignorant people here. We need more religious people to start speaking up. It is people like you who are helping to bring this country down. Prayer does need to be put back in school and both parents need to take more responsibility for their children. It is people like you who need to stop interfering with MY RIGHTS as a religious person.

    You religious zealots need to look in the mirror and accept some responsibility!! To even MENTION tax payers dollars going towards placing "religion" in school demonstrates the extent of your close minded ignorance! And to "Data Man": It's just as much the father's responsibility as the mother's to help raise children. Throwing some money on the table each month, usually not as much as you're supposed to legally, and then peacing out does not mean that you're doing your job. Where were the parents of ANY of the children that were involved in the shooting. I've lived all over the US, including Atl, GA and I lock my doors in this dirty ole' town more dilligantly than I EVER did in Atl, and I LIVED downtown! VERY sick and sad! The lights ran better there too, more people yet traffic flowed better.. kind of scary. Obviously, the PD is not up to snuff. If you drive around at night, (I work nights), you see the PO's hanging out in 1 spot, not patrolling by car, foot, or bike!

    I agree somewhat with Data Man. Often times when a child is molested, it's the mother's live-in boyfriend. Why would a woman ever move her children in with her boyfriend? This happens all the time. And believe me, if the mom has a son, he hates the fact that his mother is doing this. Parents please think before you move in with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Please put your children first!

    To ECU Alum, women have been rasing children for years. Stop blaming fathers. When a woman lays down with a man she knows what she is doing. I am not taking up for men but whoever has custody of the child is responsible. I am so tired of people talking about these dead beat dads. Thats just an excuse. You are the type of person that complain just to much.

    I was one of those introduced to the 10 commandments, thou shalt nots, and a few other psalms, & be kind to others... in school. It made a believer out of me. I believe in a higher power that will judge those that steal, murder, etc.

    neither condoms nor birth control nor God nor lack of prayer pulled the trigger. these idiots did it all on their own. it is not the government's responsibility to raise our children, introduce them to religion, or foster their relationship with God. public education was instituted to ensure that every child had the opportunity to succeed in his/her life. if you want your kids to learn about God outside of church, enroll them in a private christian (or whatever religion you are) school. if you can't afford it, that's not my problem. my tax money is not to be used for religious purposes.

    do you really think you can reduce this insanity to the removal of God from schools? have you considered that NOT ALL PEOPLE are the same religion as you? would you have your child attend a school where krishna or allah is shoved down their throats? you know you wouldn't. stop trying to shove your religious beliefs upon others. it's narrow-minded and offensive.
