@OldOllie: it's not that someone's faith is so weak it can't stand up to exposure to another POV. It's the COMPULSORY forcing of religious instruction onto children in a STATE RUN school.

Jesus Fapping CHRIST! How many times do I have to explain this to you stupid liberal F***TARDS? I don't think religion should be taught in public schools, because I don't think ANYTHING should be taught in public schools.The very concept of government-run schools is totally f***ing EVIL. That being said, I don't give a loose dry f*** what your beliefs or non-beliefs are. If you can't tolerate exposure to a different belief system, you are a weak-minded fool.

Reason #532 to abolish public schools. All little athiests' and agnostics' minds are far too weak to be exposed to ideas with which their parents do not agree.

As far as religious people being more tollerent to other dogmas and ideas with wich their parents do not agree, than non-religious people.How often do you hear that Athiest Suicide bombers detonating bombs on busses, airports, malls etc in the name of Imperical Evidence on the nature of reality? How about the terms Holy Crusade and Holy War?

If one is going to teach creationism in school, ONE MUST teach all the creation myths from ALL religions for one is no more valid than the other as philisophical concepts.
Physics, Biology, Astronomy, Math, evolution, and all the other True Sciences are supported by Huge amounts of empirical, testable and re-testable evidence of its truthfulness. Where I live several Schools are being forced to teach the book "Pandas and People" which is an extremely Judeo-Christian creationism book rather than science in any form. Then they wonder why the US is falling behind in scientific advancement, math and cognition skills.

Why can't you get that?! It's not fear for the children. Hell, most all of us in this country were exposed to Christian dogma at an early age.

What matters here is separation of church and state. And no state sponsorship of one religion.

Finally, as for cancelling government schools because they're force-feeding a specific religion on students, how about just having the schools follow the law. As for the schools being crappy, maybe that's because we spend all of our money on war instead of education?

@OldOllie - Sorry buddy, the religious type, such as yourself, are the weak minded fools. You're the ones who have never been able to think for yourselves so you blindly follow along in a religion which is the crutch you use to make it through life and justify your existence on this planet. You have it all backwards as usual, time to wake up.



^^^That's what you believe, hahaha! You're the one who's a weak minded fool.

markust, you missed my point. If you're going to force kids into crappy government schools, I agree that you can't be forcing one religious belief onto them. On the other hand, if your belief system is so weak it can be easily overturned by simply being exposed to another point of view, maybe you should reexamine it.

Everybody in this story -- the school, the preachers, and the parents -- is deserving of derision. However, the obvious solution would be to abolish government schools altogether. If you think your kids are too weak-minded to be exposed to a variety of views, whatever those views might be, you can send them to the school of your choice so their tiny little minds won't be assaulted by any ideas that don't conform to your own narrow world view, be it Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Atheist, Scientology, Wiccan, the Cosmic People of Light Powers, or whatever.

And LordJim, it isn't your school; it's EVERYBODY'S school. That's the problem.

i think the thing here isn't that they taught about "Christianity" is that it was mandatory that they attend and wouldn't let anyone leave. that's the bone of contention here. "you have to listen to this no matter what like it or not and were going to keep you here like it or not to hear it."

that is wrong. you offer. "hey we have this thing, this is what its about if you want come check it out that be great." shoving your agenda down someones throat be it a religion or political view or even "the one and only right way to bake cookies." is not going to get the results you want, as history has shown time and time again. particularly religion. if you have to virtually kidnap your "congregation", on their part its not faith, just going through meaningless motions. on your part quite possibly a felony.

OldOllie, "Reason #532 to abolish public schools. All little athiests' and agnostics' minds are far too weak to be exposed to ideas with which their parents do not agree."

Huh, let's see what you wrote about the girls who had to pretend that they were going to kiss another girl for a lesson about turning down unwanted advances, "The idiot liberal f***tards who did this should go to prison for sexual abuse of children."

Yep, you're a f*cking hypocrite. But we all knew that already.

P.S. You may want to get your tourettes looked at. That screaming out 'Liberals' tick that you do all day long is getting worse.

@markust123: fair enough. I was trying to balance out the whole "girls forced to act like lesbians" thing.

@paperduck: Did you read this that, "The assemblies concluded with a prayer and teachers blocked the exits to prevent students from leaving, the lawsuit claimed." You can teach *about* religion all you want, provided it's part of the approved curriculum for the course. Humanities, social studies and world religions might be appropriate. This most assuredly was not.

It's one thing to teach religion and another to teach ABOUT religion. What exactly was this school doing? If it is part of a social studies curriculum and students are learning about Christianity, why is that bad? It would be silly to pretend religion doesn't exist in society, students can be well rounded... and that's a good thing.

We learned about native American and other religions for the education, not so we can start being adherents.

That would be the day. You want to believe in fairy tales, go for it. Start pushing it on my kid and you and I have a real problem.

I'm very skeptical of partisan blogs. I'm not familiar with this one, but on the off chance that they actually got something correct what happened at the school is a huge violation of the students rights. Open this door in the US constitution and you will have to hold an equal number of Muslim, Jewish, Hindu... assemblies.

I bet this school was one of the ones that expression their incredible false outrage in 2009 at President Obama wanting to talk to students. The horror, a President wanting to inspire our future of children and get them to study harder. Yep, sounds like indoctrination to me (the fist part with the church assemblies not Obamas inspirational speech)..

But just ask any Christian and they'll tell you how they are tired of atheism and other cults being shoved down their throats, but THEY don't do that. No, they don't force their religion on anyone.

Except in the pledge of allegiance.
And except on the money.
And posted on the walls of courthouses.
etc
