comment that came below. It was so long that when I was finished
reading it I forgot about what was at that the top. I didn't mean to
offend anyone and I have no affiliation with that website, it was just
what I happened to read. Here are some better links. I think this is a
story with two different, very strong viewpoints, so in the interest
of fairness, I have posted first the Reuters story reporting on the
banning of the Declaration of Independence which contains the
teacher's side of the story, and the second is a website that tries to
get the school's side of the story, reporting on the strong (or
exclusive) religious content of the lesson plan, parent complaints
about this teacher, etc.
Anyway, I guess I should stop with this now, since I'm not being
mytheopeic at all.
I am finding the freenmasonry discussion fascinating, but haven't
anything to add, as I am not knowledgable in that area.
