I'm a little split about it:
I think that if it's the students free time they should be allowed to read whatever they want as long as they aren't causing problems, however, on
the other hand, I also think that academia is propagandized enough and religion should play no part in public schools. Our childrens minds are sick
Yea sick enough but certainly not due to an overexposure to private bible reading in public schools. So it must be the regular fair of the public most
sacred and honorable institution to promote moral and intellectual sickness elsewhere.
Oh but by all means let the state at all levels promote tolerance and free thinking in all things religious and philosophical! Let them teach all
about the Holocaust but never mention the same people wrote and preserved the bible and were really persecuted because of their association with it.
Yep, yep, teach them all about the civil rights movement but certainly leave out how much of the justification and energy for the struggle came from
the bible and its ministers, from churches, from the understanding that we were all "created" equal and endowed by our creator with certain rights.
Yep, preach on you holy high priests of the public educational system, den of thieves and collection of hypocrites.
