The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance, after she shared artwork from here…
Tara M.: As long as there are exams, there will be prayer in school……
“Prayer was never banned from our public school. In fact, the courts have repeatedly upheld the right of student prayer (it just can’t be led in any way or required by the school). We trust our teachers to provide education, not indoctrination. Religion is a freedom. Let’s keep it that way.”
Rayn: Indeed! Nonetheless, so long as teachers in US public schools continue to lead students in reciting the “Pledge of Allegiance,” they are still guilty of indoctrination! 🙂
The following correspondence originally took place here, on the Facebook wall of Ms. Lauryn Hill…
“Taxation is theft”
Marybett M.: So you’re PROUD to say you didn’t pay taxes cuz your ancestors were slaves. Hmmmm my ancestors died trying to free yours but I sure don’t hear “thank you”. More over if you did any kind of real research you would realize iSLAM is the “original slave trader.”
Yet today both our ancestors are dead. I DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING THAT ALLOWS YOU TO DRIVE OVER BRIDGES, FUND YOUR LAW ENFORCEMENT……
I don’t sit down on a pity pot and WHINE!
Rayn: You are simply regurgitating DISINFORMATION that is being circulated by the mainstream media monopoly for the purposes of discrediting Ms. Hill, and emotionally riling up those who aren’t interested in doing their own research about the situation! Lauryn Hill stated EXACTLY why she withheld paying taxes on her very own Tumblr page, if you are really interested:
Marybett M.: Regurgitating disinformation. Yes I do understand that cycle. You give mainstream a topic especially on someone who they don’t like their views on and it will be recycled refurgitation.
However I did come across this quote. “She explained that she hasn’t paid taxes since she withdrew from society to guarantee the safety and well-being of herself and her family.”
If it’s true, I can appreciate the intent to withdraw from society because of it’s moral corruption, I GET THAT AND SO DO MANY OTHERS. However, it still stands that we have to “render to ceasar…”
Personally, if she’s that principled and has the courage to withstand what lamestream may say, she could certainly earn doing tours. There are many that support that same view especially if there’s any “spirituality” in that as well.
It’s hard to stand up to the system but you still have to do the next right thing.
