Atheists offended by 'godly' instruction
A Denver-area school district is being sued over a program that encourages teens to success by recommending family support, diligence in homework, honesty, integrity and tolerance.

That's because among the 40 points in the "Developmental Assets that Teenagers Need to Succeed" is listed No. 19, the acknowledgement that, "My family participates in a religious or spiritual community." Two families of atheists say that's offensive.

"To us that means go to church once a week," said Bob Tiernan, with the Freedom From Religion Foundation. "And we object to it on the basis that this is the government, the public school system telling the students that they should go to church once a week." ...

The atheist is a scared person because a God of holiness and justice does not appeal to the carnal men He is not much aware of the sinfullness of the human hearth.These things are foolishness to him.

"Athiesism" is an oxymoron.....think about it! If you are a human being, you have a creator....He lives on the inside of you! Whether you believe He exists or not....does not change the fact that He is! He gives you the very breaths you take....try holding your breath....?

An Athiest has no constitutional rights anyhow.

Our rights are from our creator. We are endowed with unallianable rights, by the constitution, but the authority of those rights comes from God.

If an athiest has no God, he has no constitutional rights being those rights come from God.

Beliefs have consequences.

Why is this a news headline, Duh

Remember there is a church with Jesus as the head, there are christians in that church.
Todays church is now incorperated by the gov't. They can't complain or compete with there creator.
To send your child to one of these "christian schools" will cost the same if not more than privite secular school, and what they learn may not be Biblical anyway. Someone in the Bible said if Christ builds the church, you know the story.
The Bible says if a man does not support his family he is worst than a heathen, should this standard apply to the church?
The 501 church should be kept seperate from the true church of Christ, a church that teaches there children, feeds its needy, loves each other, not the world, or letting the gov't control there money, or teaching.
But as the Bible says that church is small and scattered. And yes hated by the world.

What's so offensive about point 19? Just answer yes or no. Evidently their conscience is bothered by it. And yes, faith does give us some guidelines and peace as well, helping us in our daily trials. That's good for success. No wonder the question is on that assessment.

Why is it that Athiests are far more offended by one mention of God in the School curriculum when millions of "Bible Believing" "Evangelical" Christians are perfectly happy to send their children to taught that God is totally irrelivant in everything worth learning?

By not ever mentioning God at school, the child is taught that God is a priviate, (and therefore irrelivant) optional extra. And barely a whimper of protest.
