Would you be ok to have religion taught in school if ALL religions where taught?

There's always a fight, against or for religions, (as in Christianity) being taught in school, with many people arguing separation of Church and State, or arguing that their belief's are being denied.  So if school's had a mandatory course in religion that covered not just Christianity and it's beliefs but all religions in the world, past and present, would you be ok with that?  Let's say in middle school or high school to narrow it down some.

You betcha.

Pupils should receive infrequent and short religious education lessons outlining the essence of all the main religions.

The basic characteristics of each faith should be taught fairly and without fear or favour.

This form of religious instruction enables the student to make an informed choice, (if they feel so inclined) of the various man made faiths on offer as they progress through the education process.

There is the other side of the coin here and it is something that could so easily backfire for religious folks. Think about it, do you actually want your kids to go to school and learn all about other religions besides the one they're growing up with? The subject matter will most likely be adminstered like any other material taught in school, hence your kids will begin to understand their religion is pretty much the same as all the other myths and superstitions out there. They may even learn about how a newer religion managed to take it's doctrines from older ones.

This could be destructive for religions as kids turn into non-believers and never look back. hehe

As an atheist I think there would be nothing better than an in depth study of the Abrahamic religions from a historical and ideological stance. The more people who actually knew what the religious texts said the fewer religious people there would be. Just reading the Bible is normally cures christianity.

Tell me more about the power of Jesus. Can he cure my backache?

I actually have a theory which is somewhat shunned in mainstream academia. You have to go underground to find it. I believe Jesus was the ancient code word for drugs. If you think about it then it makes perfect sense. That's why the Bible is so silly -- because everybody involved with writing it was on drugs!

Revelation 20:11 .. then I saw a great white throne and him who sat upon it .. from whose presence earth and heaven fled away .. and no place was found for them

20:12 .. and I saw the dead .. the great and the small .. standing before the throne .. and books were opened .. and another book was opened .. which is the book of life .. and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books .. according to their deeds

20:13 .. and the sea gave up the dead which were in it .. and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them .. and they were judged .. every one of them according to their deeds

20:14 .. then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire .. this is the second death .. the lake of fire

20:15 .. and if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life .. he was thrown into the lake of fire

Philippians 02:03 .. do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit .. but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves

02:04 .. do not merely look out for your own personal interests .. but also for the interests of others

02:05 .. have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus

02:06 .. who .. although he existed in the form of God .. did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped

02:07 .. but emptied himself .. taking the form of a bond-servant .. and being made in the likeness of men

02:08 .. being found in appearance as a man ..

he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death .. even death on a cross

02:09 .. for this reason also .. God highly exalted him .. and bestowed on him the name which is above every name

02:10 .. so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow ..

of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth

02:11 .. and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord .. to the glory of God the Father

So, it's not enough that a wide variety of religious buildings and structures litter our landscape (who don't pay property or income taxes), where one might go to get a hit of indoc, you want to push yoiur agenda into schools as well.

Okay, then we should be able to walk into your church and teach evolution, Big Bang theory and how to use a condom, if that works for you?

Interesting, but everyone has their own service, I heard a lot of opinions, but some services are fraudsters, I used it many times https://www.essay-company.com/academic-writing , I am very pleased with everything quickly and I recommend qualitatively, a large base of high-quality specialists who perform essays.

They provide survey of world culture courses. It makes sense to teach survey of world religions for the same reason. There are people out there who don’t believe what you do. They believe X. Yes, they would think your beliefs are strange too.

I don’t see a problem with it, other than the need to focus on fundamental knowledge before adding things that may or may not be applicable, such as other people’s religions.

It would be. It would most likely have to be taught through the entirety of the school life if you want to touch on every single religion. If you want to narrow it down I suppose you could do so with current religions or most popular.

Georgians are complaining about the way their schools teach religion, but a school district that is getting some of the criticism says it’s not doing anything new.

“My daughter had to learn the Shahid and the Five Pillars of Islam, which is what you learn to convert,” Walton County parent Michelle King complained to Channel 2 Action News. She added that the school didn’t teach the Ten Commandments “or anything about God.”The Georgia Department of Education requires schools to teach about Islam.

NEWSFLASH..... Christians DO NOT want religion forced on any school by a big federal Government.

What we want is what we had for centuries, before the fanatical anti God Left came to power.

It's called freedom for every school to decide for themselves what their curriculum would be.

I want the freedom of every community to decide for themselves if they want to open the day with a school prayer (WITH NO CHILD FORCED TO PRAY ALONG).

I want to give parents school choice (that democrats always fight against), so they can choose for themselves which school suits them best.

Our children are failing to the world in the basics... math, science, english, etc.

We need to teach the basics in school and get away from all the political correct nonsense.

Sinned?

Do you even have a clue how horrific the sin of supporting the deaths of even viable babies that God knows in the womb?

Do you want to compare sins? We all have sinned, but it's the Democrat Party that supports horrendous sins such as No Restriction abortions.

The GOP has tried many times to stop late term abortions but need 60 votes in the Senate to do so. Democrats stop them every time!

Has Trump sinned? Of course he has, just as every past President in our history.

The difference for people on the Right is that we care about what a person supports into law, not what sins he may have committed in past years.

It's the Democrat Party that supports the sin of abortion. If you can't grasp the difference, then please leave debate sites.
