Mention God in school? You'd better not

(Continued)

So, if approximately 94 percent of the world we live in believes that there is, indeed, a higher deity who is responsible for “all that is,” please explain to me why the remaining 6 percent have such powers of sustaining the education mainstream to expel any and all theories of creationism and condemn it to being talked about, even as a theory, in the classroom?

It seems to me that with the recent events in our own backyard of Boston, as well as extreme global conflicts, there is not a more evident time to get on your knees in prayer and ask for peace and understanding in the midst of a world that exudes such chaos, hate and evil.
