I guess theists find these two questions "brilliant":
-Why do I have to swear on the Bible in court when the Ten Commandments cannot be displayed outside?
-Why is it our children can't read the Bible in school, but they can in prison?
(note: the capitalization is not mine. I copy/pasted.)
I think these are supposed to provoke thought or something. I came up with this:
First of all, no one has to swear on a bible in court. You take an oath (unless you're in Philly, or the Carolina's), no bible involved. So... that question is stupid.
Second, if you want your children to read a bible in a strictly religious context, send them to a PRIVATE school. I'm pretty sure I haven't heard much to-do about Muslin children not being able to read the Koran or Jewish children not being able to read the Torah. If I thought for a second that teachers could use those books as a teaching tool (much like we read The Odyssey), I would have absolutely no problem with kids reading the bible in a public school. But in-theory and in-practice are two different things.
If I didn't get these things from relatives whom I love very much, I would reply to them much the same as I've replied here.
