Yes. Teach them religion as history, but don't avoid the part about all the deaths and suffering religion has caused.
But, in a lot of countries they don't even teach the alternative, evolution; so, it will be a long time until religion will be taught just as history.
Way back in High School- we had a "Comparative Mythology" class- Greek, Roman, Babylonian, Norse, and a few Chinese and SE Pacific mythologies where on the curriculum. Me and a few others also brought up the mythologies that are still called religion. Of course the religious people in class didn't like it- because the one THEY believe is the REAL religion- not like those false ones. That's why nobody believes in them anymore.
Religion needs to be as far from school and children as possible.
If you let one religion in school- you would have to have them ALL in school. Just reading off the names of every one of them would take the whole day. The walls would be covered in various religious posters, beliefs, and commandments. No time to learn anything but fairy tales all day.
Religious Education is an oxymoron.
Anyway, I thank Saint Internet for saving my mind, because the school system wouldn't have.
What I would have given to have Saint Internet around when I went through my crisis of faith.
I believe that if you need religion to teach your child morals, there is something wrong with your parenting.
I just picketed with the Phelps family today.
They had a 6 or 8 year old boy out there with them.
Living proof a poor parenting.
