Hell yes! My daughter goes to a religious affiliated preschool. Values and morals are taught as the daily curriculum. Many parents don't have time to or care to teach their children morals and values.



IMO a world religion class should be required in middle school so children can start to create their own morals and beliefs. Im sick of all the a*****es under age 12..

Me and my ex went to private schools, we both did our sacrements, and went to church Friday at school, and sundays with fam, I ended up in jail with intent to sell, he ended up in prison for firearms... my son goes to a catholic school now, I dance and bartend to pay his tuition o.O... religion has nothing to with choices we make when we *grow up* I've always had a strong faith in god... but shit happens...

Quoting FroggysMommy:" Im an English teacher and I'd love to have a "Bible as Literature" class. Not the "Oh what is God saying ... [snip!] ... should not be allowed. Teaching kids HOW to think about a religion (and the beliefs thereof) should be allowed, and encouraged."


I largely agree with you here, but not so much as it would be applied to primary education. I think religious studies are great, but if we offer one on the bible then that opens the door to require umpteen other religions/books which sounds like a potential mess. For that reason only (equal representation, essentially) I'm opposed to religious affiliated curriculum in public schools.

There's a huge difference though.
School is where young minds go to be taught and where they are supposed to respect their teachers and accept (for the most part) what they are told to be true. They also go home everyday where their guardians can decide whether or not what they are being taught in school is acceptable or not. Also the idea of the bible in school is that it would be taught, which means the children have no choice but to listen.



Prison is where older more mature (arguable, but still) minds go to serve time for their illegal actions. They are adults (not counting juvie) and therefore can decide what they will read and will not be reprimanded for refusing to believe in the Bible. Also the Bible being encouraged isn't the same as ok now you have to sit in Bible class right after your yard time to learn about Jesus.



It would be different if instead of Bible class there was a Religions class where you learnt about all religions. I have a feelings that some of the hardcore followers of the Bible would all of a sudden NOT be ok with religion in school if their kids were being forced to learn about other religions as well.

True that. I wasn't saying any one religion. I liked taking a world religions class. It helped me get my morals in check. And I think it's a good way to expand the young minds to view ideas and beliefs with an open mind.



Shoving religion down someone's throat tends to make them rebellious:

It was never shoved down my throat... when I was a teen I stopped wanting to go, my mom let me... I've had periods where I go back and forth... I feel better when I'm attending regularly but dosnt make a difference when I decide to do something... I've graduated with 2 college degrees and wet to church regularly, and still sold drugs lol

The OP is obscene. There is more immorality than morality in the Bible, and Christians employ moral relativism to make it all appear "moral".



Besides, if reading the Bible imparted special morality from on high, then the US prison system wouldn't be such a revolving door for repeat offenders.

Its not hard. Im Norse Paganist centering mostly on the afterlife and the Gods and Goddesses connection to the Earth. I also have a lot of my belief system coming from Druidic spirituality.

Okay does Norse Paganism center mostly on the afterlife in general? I wasn't sure how to read that if that is where your interest lies or if that is part of that belief system.



And BTW - is there a spirituality thread here somewhere that mommas discuss this stuff & answer questions?
