I know it’s old

And by ‘old’ I mean that the agony and angst over this was more than 72 hours ago. And, as with the RUN KIDS, HIDE, THE PRESIDENT IS COMING speech of two entire weeks ago, once again the Republic is really and truly threatened. It is under assault because schoolchildren sang a song. Where will it end?

May I add my two cents? Children somewhere sang a song. A teacher or a visitor or, for all I care, Obama’s senior prom date led them in that song.  Perhaps I can comfort the terrified by reminding them that it was not The State leading them in the song. Whoever the woman was, she was not The State. Whole different thing.

  1. “Perhaps I can comfort the terrified by reminding them that it was not The State leading them in the song”.

    Good point Moe…but I kinda wonder if the teacher or ‘some vistor’ was having the kids pray, like you know, actually saying the name of ‘Jesus’ (gasp!!!) if it would be “the State leading them in prayer”…??? for some reason…geez, I kinda think so. That’s just ol’ Steve though.

  2. There sometimes doesn’t appear to be much difference between these two types of things, but I believe that indeed there is – an important one, and it has to do with instilling civic values. It’s very hard to articulate. But ultimately, in both types of cases, people do regularly cross the line, they get slapped back and the line gets re-established.
