Are we too politically correct these days? Is the banning of singing baa baa black sheep a bit much? How about prayer in school? What's your view on the political controversy?

Well, you're allowed to pray in public schools. Teachers just can't impose their religion onto you. I'm pretty sure the constitution gives you the right to practice your religion freely, but you just can't force anyone to convert to your religion or anything.

Otherwise, I think somethings like this are necessary, while others are just stupid and unreasonable. I can't think of any situations ATM, but I'm sure i'll think of some eventually Razz sry

You, sir, deserve an Internet cookie; I 100% agree with you. Some things are necessary like martial law limiting free speech in times of rebellion.

Others are stupid, although I haven't heard of the Government ever banning the song, "Baa Baa Black Sheep". In fact, I'm writing an article related to this conversation...

Depends on which country you're from. Governments are very different in their viewpoints. Even similar goverments like Canada and United States run their country differently from each other.

In Georgia, you are not allowed to publicly pray in school.

In the UK, they changed it to baa baa fuzzy sheep.

Well I believe that is illegal. All states in the U.S. should have the same rules for a subject as wide as this. If no one else here can check this, I'll have to wait until this weekend or something. I have too much homework.

Edit: Here we go. Print this off and show it to your principal if he/she does not believe that praying in school should be permitted

Especially pay attention to:

"School officials may not compel students to participate in prayer or other religious activities."

Political corectness: a bunch of insecure babies whining about being called a name.

I couldn't agree more. They sometimes act like sore losers or stupid annoying people.

Political correctness is a term which denotes language, ideas, policies, and behavior seen as seeking to minimize social and institutional offense in occupational, gender, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, religious belief, disability, and age-related contexts, and doing this to an extent which the term infers is excessive.
