Christine Skarin and her daughters are suing over Woodbine High School's graduation song.

WOODBINE, Iowa — Christine Skarin and her twins have struck a sour note with a lot of people in their farming community of Woodbine, Iowa, but this small-town dispute isn’t the same old song-and-dance.

The tyranny of the minority who are offended by a God they don't believe in. Go figure.

What is the federal court going to do if the entire graduating class and their parents just go ahead and sing the damn song anyway?

They can't arrest 'em and they can't hold them in contempt...hint, hint.

How do you force someone to pray? I really don't understand this point.

I was just thinking the same thing.If they do not believe then why do they care? They only make folks think they are diabolical. They leave suspicions of why they truly care and are asked to be demonized.

We are all asked to do and say things out of NON other than RESPECT for others. This song cannot harm them.

I wish atheists would be more tolerant and open-minded. It is one thing to have bigoted ideas against the most cherished beliefs of their neighbors, but quite another to try to force their narrow-minded predjudices on the whole town. If they were more inclusive and less judgemental they could go along with it for the sake of peace.

Did I get all of the cliche's and buzz-words in there?

"The tyranny of the minority..."

the essence and power of political correctness.

You maybe could have squeezed "compassion", "diversity", and "shoving their Atheism down our throats" ,in lieu of 'forcing their narrow-minded prejudices on the whole town', but other than that, I think you did a very good job. But you did forget to be "outraged" or "concerned" over their attempt at "cultural genocide".

Right out of the first South Park Christmas Special. Kyle's mom (and more grudgingly, his dad) seek to remove the offensive Christian elements of the school's Christmas pageant (they are the only Jewish family in town... interesting parallel).

Since Kyle's mom is acting like a perfect horse's @ss, you just know that *someone* will unleash a blunt commentary of her. Sure enough, Eric Cartman clears his throat, steps to the front and belts out:

*******

Weeeell, Kyles mom's a b!tch, she's a big fat b!tch
She's the biggest b!tch in the whole wide world.
She's a stupid b!tch, if there ever was a b!tch
She's a b!tch to all the boys and girls.

*******************

There's more, but you get the idea. I love the part in the article where "mom" whines about "finding out who your friends really are". Yeah... I'll bet!

They say you have the face you deserve by age 40. Looks like Mom has arrived and the twins will be there about twenty years early.

Looks like some pro-Bin Laden terrorists are trying to have their own way.

"You find out really quick who your fair-weather friends and who your real friends are," Skarin said.

What a self-centered woman. "Heaven (or her equivalent) forbid you to reject me after I viciously attack you."

Good case for a shunning.
