I’ve been reading a bit online about when USA took prayer out of school. Apparantly some christians think that school shootings, drugs, violence and whatnot has something to do with this. That no praying in school will lead to all kinds of destructive behaviour. Excuse me but such BS! We don’t pray in Swedish schools and we haven’t for as long as I can remember. Yet we haven’t had a single school shooting and kids in Sweden aren’t more violent or do more drugs than others. And no prayer leading to school shootings? LOL! Do you think the Columbine shooters would have participated in the prayer if they had the chance? Do you think they would have cared? They were both very anti-religion so I don’t think so! Just because there are prayers in school it doesn’t mean the bad kids will be “saved”. Someone not interested in religion simply doesn’t care. And there are better ways to be “saved” than finding god. If people want to improve schools and reduce violence and drugs take the god damn time to listen to the kids. Educate the kids about bullying and drugs, educate the teachers about how they should handle out of control kids, the depressed kids, the bullies, etc. Oh and school shootings aren’t about prayers. It’s about crappy gun control laws. THAT’S why there’s so many shootings in USA and not a single one in Sweden which is known as a very atheistic country. I don’t mean to hurt someone who is very religious now but seriusly, some religious people are just hilarious! And not in a good way!
