Wonder what a lot of people would say if they taught the kids about Allah, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or secular celebrations?

Probably wouldn't get a warm reception I'm guessing...


public schools are the only reason I know anything about any of those holiday's... so i'm not sure what the issue is


one way or the other, the war on Christmas is fabricated by the victims anyway... the only people i see mentioning it are the ones demanding that "Christ needs to be kept in Christmas"

Had a very broad overview of various world religions while in elementary school.

As long as teachers take an even handed approach and don't try and convert anyone it can be rather enlightening.

I wouldn't have a problem with it.

Religion is a personal choice that should happen in the home first and for most.
School should be about learning.


I agree completely... and it's the question I ask people (mainly relatives of mine) when they complain about the schools not teaching the "real meaning of christmas"...

If they teach about Christmas, what are you gonna say when they teach about other religions?

That usually doesn't get a warm reception from them...

They'd be freaking out. They've talked a little about dreidels at school concerning Hanukkah but when I picked him up from school the other day he said they spent the whole morning watching movies about Jesus and making angels etc.

edit: We don't mind our kid learning about religions, if we did we'd be discussing this with the teacher or principle. However I'm in the class a lot and can tell you it's not even handed at all.

i honestly think schools should be required to teach a religion course... that would wrap all this shiat into a nice neat little bow... and give people the opportunity to explore their ideas regardless of faith.

...and that's the problem.

All of these parents who are christian, would have a bitch fit if the kids had a muslim teacher (which they probably wouldn't anyway, but that's another story) who was teaching their kids about muslim holidays... but it's ok for a christian teacher to teach about christian holidays.

It's a double standard most don't even see.
