Yep, I said it.
Its time to teach religion in schools... All religions.
Its time to 'teach the controversy'...as the fundies like to say. (when talking about teaching creationism/ID as opposed to evolution)
Teach the Controversy... Christianity is just ONE theory among many and unlike evolution has no more support for its legitimacy than any of its competitors.
Give children ALL the information on the various religions and let THEM decide which ones have merit and which do not.
OH... If you want to hear parents howl.... just try to get the ball rolling on this.
Those now pushing the hardest for God on the money and in the pledge....would be the ones howling the loudest in opposition.
Just imagine the arguments over the textbook for these religous classes????? Each religion making sure they are represented clearly and fairly....
It would be a logistical nightmare...especially when you factor in all the various religions, denominations, sects, branchs etc....
