For proponents of putting religion in schools, why isn't Church and the home enough? Why must religion be taught in schools?
it would be if schools were supportive and did not teach things that were contrary to the children's beliefs or the beliefs of their parents.
i grew up when there was bible reading and prayer in pubic schools and it made the institution a better place. no one complained as people knew it was something they endured but it certainly kept the violence, and other sins down so children could actually learn in class.
Religion is very divisive in nature, even at its most benign. For example, Christianity teaches that only proper Christians get to go to heaven, and only Christianity teaches that, at least that's what I've been told growing up, and it doesn't matter how good of a person you are, if you're not a proper Christian you do not get to go. And for me, if God exists, it is only God who gets to determine who is a proper Christian.
yes it is and God has. He even let everyone know about it. you find how to be a proper christian i the Bible--i would reccommend only 3 translations one should use, KJV, NIV, NASB to get the correct information.
But the thing about being divisive, is that it often leads to bullying.
this was not a result of christianity it comes from the sin nature. bullying is sin no matter who does it.
But as most religions fight each other for dominance,
christianity doesn't have to do this. it is supposed to preach the truth and live by God's ways. we do not need dominance, nor political power but too often misguided people take the wrong road and create stumbling blocks to Christ because they invoke christianity but do not follow it correctly.
your video didn't show where the person got kicked out of school. it was the pledge of allegience not a christian prayer so how does it relate to your point? i also see no reason for that to take place at the beginning of a game.
To that end, I have to ask, why isn't Church and the home enough?
because bad behavior isn't limited to the church and home and not all homes teach true morality or christian beliefs, for that matter nor do some churches.
