Religion in public schools
Debate Rounds (2)
religion when and where they want. Why not in schools. For children that do not come
from a religious background can learn about other peoples religion and other peoples
views. Other reasons are:
1. Kids in school who experience religion that do not come from a religious background can be more accepting of others views when they grow up.
2.It states in the constitution that we have a freedom of religion and we can practice what we believe.
3. The teaching of a peaceful religion can help the kids make better decisions when they grow older.
"And now these three remain: faith,hope,and love. But the greatest of these is love"- 1 Corinthians 13:13
"And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and woman: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house." (Ezekiel 9:5-6)
"And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain." (Deuteronomy 2:34)
"And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made the man." (Genesis 9:5-6)
"Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished." (Isaiah 13:15-16)
What a nice, positive message of love for the kids :) Look, I don't care what you believe just keep it out of public schools.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro argues children should be exposed to religion in school. Then lays out the reasons. These reasons are highly flawed and dubious. Con could easily score under the convincing argument line if Con makes even just a minimally satisfactory argument. This Con fails to do opting instead for a visceral distorted and prejudicial misrepresentation of religion especially Christianity. On a very narrow call I will give the debate to PRO
