“As a Buddhist myself I know that what they are teaching IS basic Buddhism (Zen especially) which would mean this IS religious [in] nature…” Rick Stafford, Dresden, Ontario
“Mindfulness is a spiritual practice based on a Buddhist worldview. I did Mindfulness for 12 years and know well what it is. It has no place in schools. It is not academic nor is it normal play or normal relaxation. It is a mind altering technique and makes the mind suggestable. This is only for adults who can give informed consent.” N.A., Arlington, V.A.
“I am signing because I support the concept of liberty of conscience. Both my grandfathers and my father were severely wounded defending liberty of conscience against external aggressors who would have abolished it. I refuse to sit by idly while my own elected officials trample that liberty underfoot. No person in Canadian schools should be forced to act against his or her conscience. My parents and grandparents were willing to die to defend that right…” Boyd Jahnke, Ardrossan, Canada
