<< Where did I say stop discussing religion? Nowhere. I just asked why is it
being discussed. From your reply I gather I am not afforded the same
freedom of expression as you?
I merely answered your question. If your intent was not to limit our
discussions to what you consider relevant to art, I apologize. Your words did
not clearly indicate your intent. We have had many persons try to mold this
list to their own personal, limited interests. I, personally, no longer have
any patience with persons of that ilk. My only pleasure in this list is that
most participants feel open to a plethora of topics that are important to us
art teachers. That list may include shoes, lotions, papier mache materials,
storage and cataloguing materials, first year woes, crappy schedules and
administrators, vandalism, violence, etc. Feel free to start a discussion of
any topic that is dear to your heart. As fellow art teachers and interested
parties, we will take it to our hearts. And most of us will not ask, "Why are
we discussing this?" We are here for each other in a free environment.
