Should they Enforce Christianity in Public Schools

  • God's NOT Dead!!!

    Atheist say that when Christians talk about God it offends them... In that case I can also say that you not believing he is real offends me! Personally the fact that many say he doesnt exist it does offend me. Students should have the opportunity to pray and practice their religion without worrying about offending someone else and their beliefs!! Its time for us to stand up as christians and stand up for what we believe in even if we are standing by our selves.

  • But it has to be literal Bible teachings.

    Everything written in the Bible has to be taken literally. So the barbarism of the Bible WOULD be allowed. Stoning, beating, exorcisms, would have to be allowed in order to follow the laws and customs of traditional Biblical teachings. None of this modern Christianity bull. Time to live like we're supposed to!

  • I am a Christian!!!!

    I do think Christianity should be involved in schools. Biology teachers can force evolution down our throats. So why can't we as Christians be able to tell them our side of the story? They talk about so many other religions and tell us all about them but people need to know the truth in my opinion.

  • There should be no Public Schools.

    No, 'they' should not enforce christianity, nor should they enforce secular humanism, because there should be no public schools. Thus, there should be nothing to enforce one way or the other because the institution for these things to be enforced on should not even exist. If you want christianity, fine, have it at your own school. If you want secular humanism, fine, have it at your own school.

  • It wouldn't be right

    I am a christian and i know that Christianity cannot be enforced on someone who doesn't want to believe. Enforcing christianity to students in school would be just plain wrong. That being said, public schools also can't enforce other beliefs like evolution and other religions down on the students that are christian.

  • It's Inhumane, on all aspects.

    If they were to require Christianity in public schools, it would be total mayhem. Sometime last September, a man, snuck into St. James High School. Which is in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This 17-year-old, burnt the American flags all around the school. You want to know why, because the school forced him to say "One nation, under god". You shouldn't be forced to believe in something your don't because it basically stands against, everything the United States stands for. Freedom of Speech, Seperation of Church, or even Civil Rights, would not apply if they forced christianity in public schools.

    If a Catholic Private school wants to do it, go ahead. It isn't tuition free, and it's sole purpose is for christianity and learning. Just if it isn't a private school, part of a church ONLY, then it shouldn't be enforced.

  • Lmao no no

    American government does not have legal permission to become a theological state. That is exactly what the founding fathers wanted to escape from. They were tired of religious tyranny and religions being forced onto people. Which is why we're allowed to pick out own religion and why the establishment clause was created. If you want to have your child to be a specific religious setting like Jewish or Christianity/Catholic school, send your child to one. There are hebrew schools and all religion schools.

  • No they should not.

    Biblical beliefs should not be pushed on anyone. Believing should be up to the person them selves not that oh of person who "Force feeds" them. Let alone in a public school, that is why we have such things as private schools. Therefore it should not be enforced in our schools.

  • Religion should never be taught in schools.

    'To give one's self earnestly to the duties due to men, and, while respecting spiritual beings, to keep aloof from them, may be called wisdom.' (Analects 6.12) Teachers should keep aloof from gods. They should impart in the students a benevolent, righteous, (I don't know the adjective form of propriety) and wise heart, a heart that serves humanity - not God.

  • 1st Amendment, Plain and Simple.

    It is only be taking an absolutely neutral stance on the question of religion can a government guarantee religious freedom for all. Any encroachment onto that aforementioned wall of separation between church and state would actually endanger the very liberties Christians seem to want. The irony is completely lost on them, as can only be expected.

  • A thing I like to call Separation of Church and State.

    The First Amendment of the United States of America states that all American citizens have the freedom of religion (and other freedoms). Adding Christianity into the school curriculum would violate this freedom. John Adams even stated "As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion, as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen, and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

  • "A wall of separation between church and state."

    Absolutely not. By its very nature, and upon the values it was founded upon, the United States is a secular nation that champions religious freedom and diversity. To enforce Christianity, or any religion, in public schools would turn that religion into the country's official religion, an act that violates the Constitution. Families may teach and instruct their children in whatever religion they see fit, but religious instruction should always be kept out of the classroom.
