To those of us who believe in no God at all, youíre saying that your God is an asshole. Youíre telling us that making everyone worship Him is more important to God than saving childrenís lives.
To those who believe in different gods, or different ideas of the same God, youíre telling them that they are part of the problem because they want their children to go to school in a non-sectarian environment. You are asking them to think there would be less violence in the world if they allowed your religious traditions to be honored in the public sphere, at taxpayer expense, above their own.
