I brought this up on my Facebook page after reading it on one of the news sites and I got some answers that really didn't mesh with why it was so bothersome to me.
"Does anyone else find it odd that TPS would host a welcome back to school party at a church? I have read kids getting suspended for prayer, saying "Bless you" to someone who sneezed. Not sure why it bothers me but it does. You can't have standards on one thing but do another."
So please help me understand why this does bother me. Some answers ranged from "it's just a building" to "they are trying to push Muslim beliefs". And that is not my feeling on the whole thing, I always thought, "never the twain shall meet" Some one shared a Blade article it states "Nobody is mandated to go, so people who would be uncomfortable at a Christian church can stay away," says Mr. Gault. Then why have it at a venue where some aren't able to attend because of their belief. Wouldn't this then, deprive TPS employees from celebrating just as others are but because of religious beliefs?
I have recently read stories where a student in another state was suspended for saying "bless you" to a classmate who sneezed. Others for prayer before lunch, one child for saying "Merry Christmas" to his teacher, one for wearing a rosary and another for reading the bible.
Maybe someone has a way to put it in to words that I can not find the words to express or maybe able to help me understand why it should not bother me.
