Religion - a special form of awareness of the world, due to the belief in the supernatural, which includes a set of moral norms and behaviors. I think that religion lessons shouldn't be held in schools, as it depends on person and his choice of religion. Someone takes it seriously, when someone doesn't paying attention to it. And since the school place where the children are given knowledge shouldn't take such kind of classes.

it seems to me, they are necessary at schools as basic subjects that children would have exact religious beliefs in the future. Often parents don't give to children full knowledge concerning religion, and children start going astray the religion, sometimes and to lose faith, or to choose other belief.what to avoid it, it is necessary to provide to children more information on religions, and even to conduct out-of-class lessons

But, it doesn't matter what parent's religion and how they explain it to children, this concept comes naturally. Religion is a state of inner peace and serenity . Religion can't be taught as a lesson, because as each person must choose his own way and has the right to choose their faith. There are different faith, someone believes in God, statue even in the person. But why it's called faith? Because it is inside of us, people believe in something from the inside. And it shouldn't be held as a lesson. Teachers need to educate and help kids decide to profession with help of subjects. But religion can't be the subject. If it teach as a lesson and children can seriously take it, it will be a problem in the future for them.

It is obligatory to children to know everything about other religions, the belief is good. it gives to hope, heat in from heart, it doesn't suffice to us in modern society, in the cruel world.

Children don't need to know about all religions, indeed dwell on it. Children need to learn the right things, playing sports, going to different clubs, spending time with friends, explore the world. And faith will always be with them in their hearts. The school is not obligated to provide such knowledge as faith. Nobody won't deny the fact, that some people abused the religion, moreover nowadays different sects are opened, which have a negative impact on people. Therefore, schools shouldn't be trial lessons.

I don't t deny the fact that today many sects, but the kids have to know there self and make the right choice of their religion. In the future it will be easier to understand people from other religion.

Proper religious teaching does not exist.
There is no true religion, no proper doctrines to teach, they don't exist.
Religions are mostly human made, not devised and taught by any omniscient God(s) as many religions have more than one god.
If religious scripture was the product of an all knowing, all wise God, the Bible wouldn't be such a mash of naivety and stupidity.
Teaching children religion is to teach them to be Irrational.
This may be detrimental to their future employment opportunities and education, since many industries (especially in countries like Japan) are testing for Rationality (RQ) to only pick the most rational applicants.
Children brought up on a highly religious schooling may completely fail any Rationality testing and thus be almost unemployable.
If they are educated (indoctrinated) enough, they may become Fundamentalists which is really bad.
Because Religious Fundamentalists are the least Intelligent people on planet Earth.
They would likely spend the rest of their lives being ridiculed for their extreme lack of intelligence.

Reasons for voting decision: This reads more like a forum conversation than a debate. For both sides, arguments are vague, and are merely stated, never supported. Interesting topic, but this "debate" has no substance.
