The Big Issue

Every election season there is one issue that really overrides others. In 2002, education, personality, and the flag really overshadowed every other issue and played across the board — from the gubernatorial election down to the general assembly.

    Sure am glad 35% of the respondents to this survey think edju-maka-shun is going to be the top issue this year.

    I cannot wait for the SAT scores to shoot-up when the Ten Commandments get nailed onto every courthouse (at what expense we should be asking) and the Bible courses start being taught…yeah, buddy, we are gonna bee the dadgummed smartest state in the hole You-knighted States of A-mer-i-ka after kiddies start reciting the Ten Commandments everday instead of the Pledge of Allegiance.

    Yessiree, we got ourselves some real fine representatives in office heah in Jawja.

    Of course, the fun part of this will be that the concept of “adultery” will be introduced in grade school where we can start teaching kids all about the importance of sex but only between married folks.

    Simon,

    At some point in your life, you will have to answer the question why you are so openly critical of religion. You will probably respond with “my personal religion has nothign to do with my political positions” etc. etc, but this issue seems far more personal than anyone would ever expect you to admit here.

    Meanwhile, quit mauling the subject. Your sarcastic dismissal of the deep concerns people have about the loss of a moral compass in our children (largely connected to the demise of religious influence in our country) borders on the insulting.

    Some people might even say – with some credence – that immoral, reckless, out of control kids have a harder time learning anything. But what do I know, I’m just a redneck from Forsyth County.

    You left off immigration – that seems to be the big issue the GOP is going to push. I think the GA Dems, who can’t come up with anything better, will piggy back on the national Dems “culture of corruption” play.

    Booray,

    Is it not the responsibility of the PARENTS and the CHURCh to teach religion?

    Or, are you a neoconservative in that you think the state, if run by “well-intentioned people,” can do a better job od teaching a child about religion?
