If you read their own rules:

It clearly states:
The District’s approach to teaching about religion shall be academic,
not devotional.
Other than texts used in an appropriate course of
study, the District shall not distribute religious texts or materials to

It seems hers was a little more devotional IMO. Maybe she shouldn't use any religious sermens during a meeting of GRISD, eh?

marilyn is smart, strong and witty. she rocks! keep up the good work!

4 - salon   6 Dec 2007 @ 4:14:59 PM  ive kind of stayed out of this one. i strongly believe in separation of church and state and dont think that quoting a religious poem that talks about saying grace on every occasion is appropriate at a public school board meeting. perhaps in church. i think it might be argued that the quote about grace from g k chesterton is one usually extensively in a religious context-is that against tea rules or the law i have no idea.

5 - whitkat   8 Dec 2007 @ 7:08:26 PM  well, if grisd is going to quit doing this, then somebody better tell the reverend barry black, us senate chaplain, and reverend daniel p. coughlin, the chaplain to the us house of representatives, that their gigs will be up soon, too.

there is no constitutional separation of church and state. the concept came from thomas jeffersons 1801 letter to a pack of baptist ministers who viewed tjs deism as the first cousin to paganism and warned that his election would bring an infidel to the presidency. here is the link if any would like to read the actual instrument


in regards to religion, the first amendment contains the "establishment" clause not the "separation" clause. it has been our judicial and legislative branches that have morphed jeffersons attemted explanation of his personal religious views into the bloated politically correctsecularist mumbo jumbo that it has become.

Reposting your link of comment 5, above (as I mentioned, on a software upgrade, the comments got a little stripped of characters upon posting-found the error and fixed it last night).

Jefferson's 1801 Letter to Danbury Baptists.
