Religion shouldn't be taught or indoctrinated anywhere inside a public school. In a bible club setting it would be appropriate, but not in a classroom setting. Students should be taught to reason and think logically so they can come up with their own rules of morality. Let's take for instance Christianity, they teach lying is bad which sounds like something that's reasonable, but I would argue not all lying is bad (the people who hid the Jews during WW2 for example). Religion indoctrination seems to imply we tell students what to think, what we should be focusing on is not teaching them what to think but rather how to think.

I forfeit

(Not an official forfeit, but since me and my opponent have the same views, this debate is useless).
