I need to find less biased news  
http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/Midwest/06/09/school.commandments.ap/index.html

It's funny to read things like this, because if someone tried to put an 800-pound granite tablet of the 5 PILLARS OF ISLAM at the school, the same people would probably try to burn the school down. People really need to get better at seeing outside of their own narrow minded bubble.

update: God, that guy from new zeland was right. CNN has become way too american biased. I hope people living in america realize how rediculious this whole anti middle east/ anti muslim garbage is. but they probably don't, because they have no way of being educated about it within the brainwashing of the US media. I know that I wouldn't. I hope ravi gets to go to india for a while.

if I went to public school....
My idea was that if I was in a high school when an amendment allowing prayer in school passed, and we were given 10 minutes prayer time, I would spend time praying to a non christian god. I would make up a god of my own and dedicate a little altar to him, or worship satan, or some other evil heathen religion that those conservative dumbfucks obviously didn't want when they said "public school prayer." If I was a judge I would post the pillars of islam or some bit of Buddhist advice on my wall and see how long it would take for it to get taken down.Overall, those evangelical idiots trying to put their religion everywhere are not actually supporting religious freedom by all their various appeals, instead they are attempting to use our government to shove their religion down our throats. The sad thing is that so many people believe everything the media says to them, and so this country is slowly turning into a grotesque amalgamation of 1950's conservative paranoia and 80's corporate excess and greed. If I think of any way I can reverse this trend, I will.

INFADEL!!!! THE ALL MIGHTY USA WILL CRUSH! YOU@
CNN is not biased! and Nether is FOX News! You must accept the word of our lord Bush! He knows best for the world, General Ashcroft is just making the world safe for the true bible thumpers of GAWD! Questioning our leaders actions is a SIN! how dare you think for your self!... ok that got old fast. I dont watch TV much at all so I have no idea what any of the midia people are saying... I need to go to africa to see what it is really like or if it is a bad as every one makes it out to be.

And now, an update from Comical Ali
[Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf]There is no bias in American news reporting! American news is entirely the truth! The fools who attempt to remove the holy word of God from the school are even now committing suicide upon the walls of West Union! In fact, our agents are now distributing cyanide pills to them in order to make their deaths less painful, because we feel sympathy for their pitiful selves![/Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf]

By the way, if you think going to India will reduce the level of anti-Muslim garbage in my media intake, you may just have another think coming. Sure, we have the odd 'hate crime' or two here, but when was the last time there were all-out race riots against Arabs in a major city?
