Some of you would have been very disappointed if Ol' TC didn't weigh in on this particular thread. Some of you might also be surprised by my answer
to this as well.
First, to respond to a couple earlier responses.
True, as it was pointed out, it is not the responsibility of the school to teach Christianity, but as this is a Christian nation, and I have proven
time and time again on this board that it is a Christian nation (At least was founded to be one), it would harm nothing. The teaching would have to
be very generic, not going anwhere near any of the topics that separate the several denominations, though.
To the question of wether or not the reading of the Satanic Bible would be acceptable - sure, in a Satanic nation. Satan is the destroyer, not the
builder, so you might have problems finding the right nation for that, though.
Now, as time is running out and I'm going to have to run to work, let me get to my answer to that question: No. Not particularly. Here's my
The schools should be focusing on Reading, Writing and Arithmetic, not to mention hard sciences and languages. It should spend all its resources on
these topics and no time on either religion or the liberal social engineering topics. It takes minimum of 12 years to prepare a human to enter the
workforce, and with the changing of the world, both high and low tec jobs being outsourced, the child needs as much information as possible to
compete. Parents need to turn off the TV and do their jobs of rearing their offspring.
Ok, some of you can pick yourselves off the floor. I'm going to work now.
