Religion, in its conventional meaning, should not be taught in a multi-religious nation,because it creates more hatred than harmony.Like sex and love, it can be automatically learnt as children grow up.However, what is, on a lage consensus, deemed to be good or bad may be taught to ensure a strong influence on impressionable minds.
Yep so then people can make their own mind up in what they belief in rather than just following their parents beliefs
No because some people believe in different things and its not rite to discuss another religion with some one who don't believes in a different religion.
I believe it should be up to the school. And up to the parents and children if they wish to take that class.
I think yes but only as an elective and not in any particular subject and definitely not as science. Maybe in social studies but I wouldn't even like it being taught there. Thats just my opinion.
No it shouldn't because if some one goes to church or learns religion out of school, they wouldn't want to learn another religion.
Yes b/c kids should be taught about different religions so they can respect other religions and lead a good life
Our country was based on Christian principles at the time of confederation. Is it ok to throw out all principles that we base our morality on.
No because people like me would hate listening about religion crap at school and I'm 14!!
Yes I do think that religion should be taught in schools, but it shouldnt be preached. We should be able to learn about the religions not learn the religion itself. Also kids shouldnt be forced into learning about religions if they don't want to. To make that easier I think that religion should be taught from middle school to high school because most kids around elementary age level are not 100% sure about it and usually they only know what their parents have taught them.
Yes, a basic comparative religion class.
Religion in general are great for children to learn about with all the religions out there and their differences, but not a "religion specific" class.
Yes of course they should be taught if they are then they will be very confused about other religions when they grow up its all part of learning and they need to know about all the religions
this helps the children respect other religions knowing the similarities and differences between theirs and others religions
hope this helped
Yes it should because religion helps teach good morals and high self-esteem
