You speaking of "Sunday school"?


I know private schools teach religions. Public schools do not, everyone has their own religions. :ty:


Not the Sunday School. The CHURCH School, a private school you mentioned to, yes. There's a Church Elementary, Middle, High Schools.

Of course, not the public schools, the government would never force students to study specific religion and reject other religions.

We have religion and Evolution teachers in public school but it's parent's decision to allow their children to have lesson in both religion and Evolution or not.

I allow my children to attend religion and Evolution lessons because I want them to decide what they beleive or not. Of course my children questioned me what I beleive in... It's my duty as parent to positive both religion and Evolution and let them know what I thought. It's my children's choice what they beleive in.

Does your duty also include sharing with your children your belief in Satan?

There are groups of us who teach Science without religion because we beleive that the Bible will prove to be accurate and we are not afraid to examine all truly scientific points and not belief systems masquerading as science. I have personally viewed over 80 scientific debates on Evolution vs Creationism. (Creation Theory that comes from pure scientific evidence not the Bible) I have seen that overall geological evidence supports a young earth and not an old one. But I have also seen with my own eyes on those debates scientists routinely disreguard that evidence because it would negate their theory of Evolution. And according to the geological evidence I have seen Evolution isn't even a good theory but according to scientific process would still be only in the catagory of a Hypothosis. A good book to read that is written by an agnostic lawyer is, "Darwin On Trial". Warning, DRY READING is obviously written by a lawyer! There is also an ASL series out there titled "Over 250 Proven Lies in The Text Books" Good viewing.

Of course, not the public schools, the government would never force students to study specific religion and reject other religions.

The public schools in the US routinely encourage the study of religions as cross cultural studies, EXCEPT for Christianity. The study of that is routinely blocked by school boards, even though the US Supreme Court says it is ok to study ALL religions for purposes of cultural awareness, historical reference, and language arts, (poetry, prose, etc)

What? Did you just say except Christianity? During my high school, I study the world religions include the Christianity...

Yes I did. At the present time, in our school systems principals and school boards will fight against having classes teach about Christianity and against having Christian clubs even though other religious clubs are allowed and other religions are studied. For most administrators it is not a matter of dislikeing Christianity it is a matter of money. The ACLU routinely looks for schools that have anything dealing with Christianity and then encourages parents not of that faith to bring lawsuites. Some parents will do this on their own though.

University refuses Christian groups
Insists non-believers must be allowed in leadership
Posted: August 09, 2006

University of Wisconsin officials are being warned their refusal to recognize Christian student groups is illegal.

In recent weeks, the University of Wisconsin-Superior has denied recognition of the school's InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison has derecognized the Knights of Columbus.

The officials allege the groups violate school's "anti-discrimination policy" by not allowing non-Christians to serve in leadership positions, according to the Arizona-based public-interest legal group Alliance Defense Fund, which notes non-recognized groups are denied access to campus facilities and student funding.

"Christian student groups shouldn't be treated differently from other student organizations," said ADF Senior Legal Counsel David French, who issued the warning to school officials in a letter.

"The University of Wisconsin has decided to force campus student organizations to violate their core beliefs, even in the face of controlling federal case law that bars them from doing so," French said.

The lawyer charged the school is engaging in a double standard, marginalizing Christian speech while enthusiastically claiming the First Amendment protects professors such as Kevin Barrett, who claims the government staged the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Even worse, French declares, the university appears willing to "defy binding court decisions for the sake of excluding Christians."

In his letter to university officials, French cited the recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit in which the court reinstated the official recognized status of the student Christian Legal Society chapter at the Southern Illinois University School of Law.

The University of Wisconsin, French points out, is in the same federal circuit as Southern Illinois University.

As WorldNetDaily reported, officials at the University of California's Hastings College of Law in San Francisco rejected the Christian Legal Society student chapter two years ago because they believed the group's requirement that officers and voting members subscribe to the group's Christian beliefs constituted "discrimination" in violation of school policy.

The student group is appealing a decision in April by a California district court which ruled the college had not violated its constitutional rights.

And here is a link that will give you an idea of the systematic attacks being leveled against Christians in this country. Not other religious groups.

It is illeagle but no one wants to spend limited school funds to defend its position against a frivolous lawsuit. Their is an organization of Christian lawyers, (yes there really are some of those kind) that will defend these type of cases and when they do they always win, BUT the school officials would rather just lay down and give into the people bringing the lawsuit, (usually the ACLU) rather then spend any money.

Mine tends to come up with Sikhism 100%. Unfortunately I don't want to become a Sikh; I don't want to have to grow a beard or change my surname. I always get neopaganism quite high, too, but I don't believe in magic. Bleh. :D
