    Political Correctness Run Amok?

    A Keller school district parent said political correctness has run amok at her daughter's elementary school, where the principal chose to omit the words "In God We Trust" from an oversize coin depicted on the yearbook cover.

    They also chose not to use the Liberty Bell or the Statue of Liberty on the cover as those may have been offensive to some students, the article says! Unreal.

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

    While I can faintly understand (though not agree) about using the words "In God We Trust," I am flabbergasted by the idea that it could be offensive to use the Liberty Bell and the Statue of Liberty. These are American symbols and this is America, isn't it? Well, isn't it? And if someone is somehow offended by that, well...don't let the swinging door hit you on the way out. What on earth is happening to us?

    Why not just omit the image of the coin if they felt it was a problem? Just silly.
