Re: Should religious texts be taught in schools?
of course religions should be taught in school. I do not think it should be taught in science class, as science is based on observation and evidence. To Mantis I pose the statement that science isn't the only important thing to learn in school, but also about other cultures. Understanding other cultures is important in acceptance and tolerance of them, and helps one to know their place in the world. That being said, religion should be taught in a "world religions" class, which would teach the concepts of all major world religions. I don't care if you believe or not, but religion has a role in society for good, and ignoring it completely would be detrimental in the long run. Remember, that even if current religions aren't taught, you are still being taught religion if you ever study ancient Greece, Rome, any of the ancient cultures. Remember there is a difference between Teaching religion, and Preaching it, Learning is never a bad thing.
