By now you've likely seen the divisive "Mary had a little lamb... of god... that belongs in the schools" variant on Facebook.

-----
Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was as white as snow....
And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school each day,
‘Twasn’t even in the rule.
He made the children laugh and play,
To have a Lamb at school.
And then the rules all changed one day,
Illegal it became;
To bring the Lamb of God to school,
Or even speak His Name.
Every day got worse and worse,
And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh,
We heard gunshots and tears.
What must we do to stop the crime,
That’s in our schools today?
Let’s let the Lamb come back to school,
And teach our kids to pray!

I suggest replying with a 'fixed' version.

And everywhere that Mary went,
The Lamb was sure to go.
She brought it up in school each day,
Which broke the golden rule.
Gary had a little cow,
Sacred don't you know,
Gary said it's his turn now,
But the teacher always said no.
She made the children stand and pray,
Praising the Lamb at school.
And then the rules all changed one day,
Illegal it became;
To teach the Lamb of God in school,
when some don't think the same.
Students can still bring up their gods,
lambs, cows, and sacred things,
the teacher just can't pick a side,
parents pick eternal kings.
Despite what you may have heard,
About our founders' intent,
About both rights and even cows:
they're actually self-evident,
and every child is born an equal,
bring the old testament,
and let them bring the sequel.
The only problem is that the students are of varying religious backgrounds, and it is not ethical for teachers to push their own personal religious beliefs on highly impressionable youths at government expense.
