    There's no reason for this type of insult. Knock it off.

    You have, once again, labeled omnipotent God,
    Rather, "omnipotent" is a label you have applied to God, when it is not Biblical. "Omnipotent" means "all powerful," or, "having all power." God has delegated some of His power to principalities, powers, and authorities.

    and His Word, impotent
    This is based on the prima facie statement above, that God is omnipotent.

    in areas that you have unilaterally decided He can't work in.
    Where have I said He couldn't work in them?

    All I have said is that trying to put new wine (God's word) into old wineskins (a school system that used to teach God and His word) would cause the wineskins to break, and you would lose the wine.

    Better to start fresh with new wineskins (for example, requiring that parents teach their own children).

    This is the same kind of misunderstanding as thinking that the Jews rejected Christ so the Kingdom was postponed.
    This is another prima facie statement.

    Please stop saying God can be pushed out of anywhere. It is impossible.
    It's not.

    Used to be that God was taught by the school system of America.

    Now if you teach God, you're likely to lose your job as a teacher for not toeing the line set by people who reject God.

    But you can teach any other religion and they'll accept you.

    He can decide to leave people to their own machinations, but it is never at the expense of losing control of any situation.
    Sure. But that does not inherently contradict the position that people can push Him out of their lives.

    In fact, it's the main reason God will send them to the Lake of Fire, because He will honor their desire to be separated from Him.

    He rules in the darkest corners of the cosmos.
    What does that have to do with anything?

    This is not a universe where two opposing ideas clash in a battle of Titans.
    On one side, you have submission to God, and on the other, you have rebellion against Him.

    How do those two things NOT clash?

    Satan lost whatever war he thought existed in the garden when God promised Christ would crush him at the cross.
    Well, no, the war is still ongoing, though I do agree with scripture that the ending has already been decided.

    Hatred is not inherently evil. If it were, then God would not hate or command us to hate.

    These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood,A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil,A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren. - Proverbs 6:16-19

    Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. - Romans 12:9

    does not exist as a force;
    Sure it (evil, not hatred) does.

    Not in any literal sense, but its effects are still felt in the world.

    it is the absence of the perfect love of God.
    I address this below.

    Darkness is the absence of light, silence is the absence of sound, cold is the absence of heat,
    No disagreement there.

    evil is the absence of love.
    Rather, evil is rebellion against God.

    Further, schools cannot "have God in them".
    You seem to be taking everything I say as literal.

    That is not the case.

    By "God has been kicked out of the public schools," I simply mean that God, His existence, and His standard for right and wrong are no longer taught in schools.

    Only individual people can make that claim.
    Well, no.

    If a nation is Godless, as Israel was several times throughout their history, then He and His values are not present in the nation as a whole.

    Can you not see that my call "C'mon Dems, help us put the Bible back in schools if you really care." is a call to individual liberals to abandon an ideology that doesn't work?
    That's not what that phrase means.

    George, words have meaning, and certain strings of words have certain meanings.

    What you said, "C'mon Dems, help us put the Bible back in schools if you really care," is not a call to individual liberals to "abandon an ideology that doesn't work," it's asking them to put God back into a system that once had God in it. It is, itself, based on an ideology that doesn't work, ie, putting new wine into old wineskins. And while there's nothing inherently wrong with putting God back into the Godless school system, time would be better spent forming a new system that inherently has God as a part of it.
