boys4pele - in regards to what you had said.
I totally agree with you on that point too; but jones took the words right out my mouth when he mentioned that your native home does help you out first, from the very time that you were born.
It's not like you ever had to worry about your school being blown up, constant war going on all around you, dodging bullets. I mean for f*** sucks which child should have had to experience that?? And not just children, any person.
and like jones said, while it doesn't seem fair sometimes; you would have wonder how some peoples groups would react if we DIDN'T help these ppl out!!?? think about it; if the government didn't even attempt to give them any support there would be plenty of uproar about it.
ypoons - once again that judgemental preaching tone is creeping out!!!
you said "If you cannot dress like the rest, then you should home school them"!!! come on man, what the f*** is that?? Jones and I had already mentinoed earlier, and what i thought was half the point of this thread, was that IT IS PART OF THEIR RELIGION THAT THEY MUST WEAR THESE GARMENTS AND THEREFORE SHOULD NOT BE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AT SCHOOL FOR NOT WEARING THE UNIFORM!!! despite the fact if there is a dress code or not.
and don't you think the reason that they are able to wear what they wear is because the school has obviously compromised on these rules to allow for it!!!!
and then you say "I believe in order to respect others they should comply with the rules set forth at the school".
as i mentioned above, it's obvious the school compromised on uniform rules, and for you to be saying that 'in order to RESPECT others they should comply with the rules..'??. where is OUR respect for them to wear their religious garments due to their beleifs??!?
it's just very contradicting what you have said there
and i also don't understand how the 10 commandments come into this?!?!?
