Thanks Jay for reminding us of all the things we had hoped we had forgotten
since catechism was banned in public schools. Now that the pledge of
allegiance has been banned as well we can only hope that by having mullahs
in public schools will help to answer the religious questions of tomorrows
Keep 'em Flying
