Here's the link to the school district in question.

I see nothing like the author of the story describes.

The Constitution applies to everyone. If a school is funded by the state and government they should have to abide by the Constitution. This school is clearly not doing that, so as for what should happen to them? They should be punished as per the Constitution.

The minority should not have to suffer or feel as though they are loners or outsiders just because the majority feels and believes differently than them. They should not be punished for being raised with different beliefs.

Did you read the article at all? It goes into detail about what the teachers say and teach, it's unacceptable for a government run public school.

Secularism is an agenda as much as any religion, and when your teachers gets your kids for 5 days, 8 hours every day. They get a significant amount of influence.


And its the Parents job to guards against and educate their child properly, any parent who thinks just sending their kid to public school is doing the best for them is delusional.

The sad fact is most education in America is awful by any measure, these issues don't belong in the schools, religion should be the job of the parent not school.

Schools can barely educate as is, children are leaving school unable to read a bible, THAT should concern parents more than what ideology is being taught.

Its like arguing the paint color while your house is burning.

While I agree with you here you seem to be ignoring the issue here. The article talks about a boy who is Buddhist who attends this school, and as far as I can tell he is forced to attend this school because it is within his district. The article also talks about a teacher calling Buddhism and the Buddha "stupid".


So this is a parish (religious) type of school?
And there are no choices of regular public schools in the area?
Or is a school of religion now the new normal in parts of the US?

That's sad if families have to move away from the district if they want the focus of education to be on reading, maths, sciences, and socials.
Schools should have their teachings, and churches should have theirs. Sunday school is the exception, which is kind of both

As another poster pointed out the ACLU is suing the school over these allegations.

ACLU

I doubt the ACLU would be suing the school if the allegations didn't have some kind of truth to them.

I wonder if this a prelude to a Christian Theocracy in America

Last time I checked, La. is traditionally Roman Catholic from French roots. The majority want it, apparently, and in my opinion, that's their call.

If you don't live there, what's your beef/agenda. Continued disseminating of the anything but religion indoctrination currently favored by the Feds.?

Separation of church and state was, from my understanding, intended for the Feds to get that it was none of their business one way or the other. That's the view of a large percentage of this nation.

You had better learn to allow others to have their viewpoint, especially in states that don't see it your way, else you can kiss this "Union" called the Unites States goodbye.

In other words, it's none of your business. LOL

Tell that to one of the teachers in this school.


Roark also regularly features religious questions on her tests such as "ISN'T IT AMAZING WHAT THE _____________ HAS MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" When C.C. did not write in Roark's expected answer, "LORD," she belittled him in front of the rest of the class. While studying other religions, Roark has also told students that Buddhism is "stupid."

Talk about freedom of expression and religion? This teacher wants none of it when it comes to other religions and beliefs. LOL

It is not my intention to deflect from the topic of separation of church and state - the ACLU is currently suing the school over this issue - read more here

Given Louisiana is deeply Christian in it's heritage, I would like to ask you a few questions, if I may.

The School has been practising this type of "education" for quite some time, why is this only coming to light now?
Because someone finally had the guts to stand up to it. Which suggests that the indoctrination essentially was working. All the more reason to shut it down.


Should the accepted situation be changed because of a minority?
The accepted situation should be changed because it is wrong, minority or not.

Wrong. It is literally the first thing on their list! See below:

Taken from: www2.sabine.k12.la.us...

Okay. Admittedly that was the only reference to religion I noticed, and it was on their old website. But it certainly suggests there is something to the accusations.

Funny I have read a lot about public schools cramming islam down the throats of students but nobody here complains but mention Christianity and holy hell...

Books funded by Saudi Arabia are many classroom texts.
Maybe not the best sources but if you can't teach Christianity you can"t teach Islam.

Yes, that's precisely what is happening; with Christianity as a STATE supported religion. Welcome to the New World Order with FEMA camps as reeducation centers to help the malcontents get their minds RIGHT.

And corporate prisons for those that won't conform.

A conservatives wet dream....

Of course Islam shouldn't be taught in schools, no one ever said that it should be. The problem is religion, no matter which one, is being forced on children in this public school. Deflecting the attention to Islam doesn't neegate what is going on here.

If you'd like to make a thread pertaining to Islam being taught in schools then I'd be more than willing to participate and throw it a S&F. Religion should not be a part of a school environment, whether it be Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity,Mormonism, whatever the case may be.

This is terrible.

Teaching about morality and ethics!

We need abortion taught, sex education taught, we need to give everyone a trophy and let them pass grades without them learning! We need to spend more time and money on teaching kids about sexuality and making selfies! Where are the classes on Justin Beiber or Lady Gaga?


Indeed. Somehow catholic dogma is equated to morality and ethics. That's a larf.

They meant LA as in Louisiana. Not L.A. (Los Angeles) the city in California...

Ok, you seem to be pretty defensive here. Would you happen to be a Christian?

Why should a family be forced to spend thousands of dollars relocating and leaving all they've built up, friends and family included, to find a school that isn't biased toward one religion or another? Are you seriously that deluded to think that is fair on the family?

The school should have never gotten this way to begin with so yes they should have to change, it's part of the Constitution for church and state to be separate. If this school is state funded, which it is, it should have to abide by the Constitution, plain and simple.

Or will you say the Constitution is somehow anti-Christian now?

It may be the parents' job to do it, but when does the parent get to choose what school the child gets to go to as part of their job?

Oh, no, they don't get to do that unless they have a lot of extra money on top of their taxes, and God help them if they think part of the schooling should include topics other than the typical atheist agenda. See, in America, you send your child to the school in the district you live in, and no matter what, it can't include any topics that are other than atheist and politically correct.

So, if you should want to try to find a school that teaches religion, you are SOL unless you happen to be relatively wealthy.

Now, explain to me how that is fair to anyone other than atheists?

I wasn't aware that public schools taught that God doesn't exist and that all religions are lies. What part of the country are you from where they have Satan worshipers teachings math and atheists teaching history based on the non-existence of God? Because where I grew up the schools didn't say anything about God, whether it be his existence or non-existence.

I'd wager that a large portion of the countries teachers believe in God in one form or another, that doesn't mean they should teach it at work though.

God and religion should stay in church, that's what church is there for. You really can't understand that can you? My faith in humanity gets smaller and smaller every time I hesr something like this.
