LETZ TEECH RELIJINN IN SKOOLZ by Geth-VI LETZ TEECH RELIJINN IN SKOOLZ by Geth-VI
In regards to: [link]

Why? Because...:
-We already have schools for that
-The schools would get in trouble with their parents for forcing a religion on their kids
-Children wouldn't have a choice in what to believe in
-And again, it takes away rights

Instead, let's teach science and/or evolution instead of religion, besides, they're more valuable to learn and are worth learning anyway.

If someone said that schools should teach the Qur'an, Americans would flip their shit. THE DOUBLE STANDARD STIKES AGAIN.

Maybe it would be better to show to schoolchildren how horrible and cruel is the Bible, and they will say: "No, we have read the Bible and that is why we shall be Atheists. We shall never visit churches or even pray at home".

In my country we study All religions. We learn about them all, not just about the one.
There isn't any special schools for religion. Religion is one school subject with others.
We also study maany other things, that's why our education is one of the highest one in the world.
I have NEVER understood that why america don't accept it, but they're soooo into religion. 
I would prefer studying ALL religions, that at least is general education and Won't harm Anyone to know a little bit more than just the own religion.

I'm a Christian, but I wouldn't mind going to a school of a different religion. Sure, I wouldn't believe, but it would be interesting to study some other mindsets for once.

Well, they do teach parts of the bible in history already, there are parts of it that are historically accurate, just like parts of the quaran are, though it's definitely not the entire thing. The thing is that it isn't taught out of the holy books, it's taught from other sources. No teacher in a public school can pull out a holy book and teach from it without repercussions from the law, as religious freedom is a thing that exists.

Sadly they have forced us to learn everything about the bible or religion in general when I still have been in school.
It was awful, because I had no interest in it. And I think you can imagine how bad I have been treated once my teacher
found out that I don't believe in a god, because I am an atheist (don't get confused by my name, I may have interest in Lucifer and angels in general, but I don't believe in them). Bad times, bad times. I am glad that I have finished school 10 years ago. But sadly the time hasn't change anything. They still force kids to learn everything about religion over here...

Yes, agreed.
I saw a clip of a ''teacher'' (more like preacher) in a scool (In the Netherlands, one very atheistic country for crying out loud!) who said this, and I quote (translated into english of course):
''When people start rejecting the bible, people like H I T L E R come to power''

I puked and facepalmed pretty hard.

That kind of stuff should be forbidden.

This is why I don't have faith in humanity anymore.

Hitler WAS a CHRISTIAN.

He supported Christianity so much, he decided to eradicate those of different religious views and descents in order to spread his beliefs.

He did grant Christianity a large amount of pride, but deemed Nazism to be the official state religion, replacing all the Bibles with versions of Mein Kampf. I'm neither Christian nor religious, but I just wanted to clear it up that he likely wasn't a Christian, at least not truly with faith.

Kinda obvious (one of my best friends is one, to make clear I do not hate religious people).

I was just stating how wrong it is for a teacher to teach children to hate others based on religion/absence of one.
I'm sorry if I did not make myself clear enough.

I do not have any problem with religion, as long as it does not intervene with human rights, such as equal treatment and freedom of religion/absence of religion.

I don't think religion should be taught when it's important in history, because religion is important in some cultures (ex. How some country's celebrate different holidays for religious reasons/ why the pilgrims came to America/ etc.) but I don't think readings from the Bible need to be taught in Public school.
In Catholic School I see no problem with it.
That being said, they shouldn't be reading the parts that are against gay marriage/ women's rights/ etc. because times have changed.
And evolution was a thing, you can't ignore it, and it needs to be taught in all schools. Ignoring evolution is like ignoring the history of your own country.

I know this is probably an old stamp [2012-2016 o_o] but YES YES YES
One of the subjects at school is CHRISTIAN STUDIES. Just Christian Studies. Not any other religion. We get graded and homework on it. -_- 
And as well as that we also have science as a subject (obviously) and we're constantly being taught things in each subject that contradict each other.. 
plus the christian studies teacher is very very scary

It depends. If history class brings up the bible and mentions a few things that Christians do, okay. But in Christian school ways, no that is completely unnecessary.

I like learning about different religions a lot. Even as an Atheist. I think people should learn about them as they are a HUGE part of human history and what shaped our culture's, morals, and governments. Not teaching around those things is denying a huge part of history. I DON'T think they should be teaching Religion in a "This is what you should believe about it" sort of way, but in a "This is what this religion has contributed, and hurt in these specific events in history" sort of way. Talk about the wars caused by religious fights, countries dividing and gathered by those religions, the amazing elaborate architecture that still stands and the great art Renaissance funded by the church etc. Lots of interesting stuff, I learned a lot about Christianity when studying art history and Ancient wars. As well as studying Native American history and how Christianity brought Native Americans their written language, and taught them how to speak English. 

I'd say history is more valuable to learn than strictly science as well (Evolution is part of history so I won't knock it). Learning from science is fine, but if you don't learn from history you are doomed to repeat it as the saying goes. Would it serve us more to understand the makings of the stars, or how to keep our government from going to war and killing tons of innocent lives? Is it more important to know how many chemical compositions there are, or how to prevent slavery from occurring again? I LOVE science a lot as well, and it is a really interesting thing to study but rarely does it go towards solving some of the major problems we have today in society which could easily be prevented with more thorough and unbiased teaching of history.

By the standards of Christians, everyone deserves to go to hell for one reason or another. Most Christians don't care if someone is LGBT, they just don't like it being shoved in their face 24/7 or people claiming they are hateful because of the loud few who are truly hateful towards LGBT. Also, you can love the person and hate the sin, it's a thing in christianity you know.

Some old men were handing out pocket bibles outside my school in like February or something and they forced me to take one.
They also held signs that said things like "God is our savior!", "God loves you!", and "We're all God's children!"

Me: Um...you know you're not supposed to do that, right? Besides, I'm not religious, so I don't need this...
Them: You're not religious? Well, then you're going to hell!!1!!11! Satanist!!11!!!
Me: ...

If they did this at the other school, where my Satanist lesbian friend goes, I'd like to see her reaction.

Happened with me too.
I just said "So it's mine now"
"Yeah." they responded.
"I can do anything with it."
"Yep."
So I threw it in the trash and walked off.

Well, you should learn about different religions in a public school, but the school shouldn't attempt to force one religion onto their students.

Private schools are different. Many private schools are religious schools, so obviously they'd teach religion and if someone doesn't like that they don't have to go to that school.
