Tag Archives: meet me at the pole

i’ll see you at the pole.

Because I’m a super nerd, I like to look at Google Trends and see what the kids are Googling these days.  Obviously when I saw “see you at the pole” as one of the top terms, I had to check it out.  Do you know what immediately came into my head?  Stripping and pole dancers.  Perhaps “see you at the pole” is used as a challenge for pole dancers–like a walk off…but crazier.  Maybe we’re talking about Santa and the North Pole. I don’t know.

See You At The Pole is actually a day each year when Christian students gather at the flag pole and pray before school.  Ummm.  What a let down.

Two million students are expected to have participated this morning in the See You At The Pole 2008.

This raises questions of the separation between church and state.  While this occurs outside of school hours and is student led, should administrators be allowed to participate?  Where are the lines drawn?  What do you think would happen if I’ll See You At The Pole 2008 was all about devil worship?

Lots of thoughts for your Wednesday morning.

Pole dancing is way more fun to think about, right?  But what do you think?
