‘Lunch lady said I can’t pray,’ 5-year-old tells her parents
Biz Pac Review ^ | 3-27-2014 | Michele Kirk

Imagine hearing this story from your 5-year-old when you ask her how her day was in kindergarten.

Kudos to these parents for staying calm and teaching this little girl that she can pray absolutely anywhere she wants.

If it were a member of the middle eastern death cult, and she got on a prayer rug and started saying “death to the Jews and Christians, pigs and dogs” they would order the other kids to be quiet and let her pray in peace. Then they have a special prayer room build for her, complete with foot washers and kid-size bomb vests.

Ya know my kids would pray at lunch and never got harassed. It was private, non-obtrusive, and no one cared. And, yes, it was a public school in VA.

Some of these people are really uptight when a prayer shows up.

They’d let her strap on a bomb and blow up the serving line, but pray? No way.

More than enough! Our only hope is civil war or refuse to pay taxes! Each one has it’s merits.

Worldly weapons won’t win. It is to cringe when people start out saying “our only hope is” and God is not squarely at the end of the sentence.

Yup. That is one of the instances in which it is right to defy. Pray quiet, pray loud, however is suited to the incident, but pray. Why is the lunch lady such a sourpuss? She need to know Jesus.

Just explain to the girl: “The lunchlady is just angry because she is a failure at life, so she takes it out on other people. We should pray for her, and ask God to soften her bitter heart.”

Next time, the little girl should tell the lunch lady she will pray for her soul.

That’s a good one. The next day, she can say she is praying she survives the lunch.

What a sweet little girl. I love how she gets grumpy frowny sour adult face for lunch person saying “It’s not good!” and brightens up at 1:05 when she says, “I said, ‘It IS good!’”

How many other children are knuckled under by such heavy-handed govt goon tactics...

Absolutely.

This lunch lady never told her kids not to pray before meals. Matter of fact, we did it before every meal in school.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

“Worldly weapons won’t win. It is to cringe when people start out saying “our only hope is” and God is not squarely at the end of the sentence.”

Theologically, you stand on thin ice.

Remember “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesars”?

Once given free will and the uniquely American combination of the soap box, ballot box and cartridge box, to ask the Almighty to solve problems of our own making is presumptuous to say the least.

The “Lunch Lady”, an even more overstuffed version of the DMV Lady.

Yes, the Almighty DOES solve “problems of our own making.”

If He did not then the Savior is in fact going under a false label.

But if she were a Muslim, it wouldn’t be an issue at all.
