I don't understand this at all. Have these people never heard of a little thing called Sunday school? I don't see the point of pulling kids out of school during the day when they should be learning academic subjects. If you want religious education for your kids, you pursue it on your own time, not the public school's time.

it does seem as simple as that.



what discussion is there to be had? religious education on your own time, not the school's time.

Maybe it's just the neck of the woods I live in. But definitely if a kid around here decided not to do this he or she would catch all sorts of flack. Maybe it's not this way all over.

I do think faith is a personal decision, and education is what should be taught during school time. I wouldn't object to it before/after school, but I have to sympathize with the "outcasts" who aren't learning anything during school time. After all, I don't like the idea of non-educational ideology taught in schools or during school time, especially when I don't believe in it. If a private school did this, it wouldn't be an uproar.

Well it's my understanding that the students who aren't going to the bible classes aren't doing crap because most of the students are gone. Maybe i'm wrong. That's not the students' fault.

I learned my bible studies in Sunday School, evening youth gatherings, and retreats. I'd much rather learn art, choir, metal shop, athletics, or even personal finance during school hours rather than something I'm already getting somewhere else.

More than likely those that attend the classes go to church and those that don't attend the classes don't attend church. So teach me something I'm not getting already.

Seems common sense to me.

Yeah, I thought so because that's the South as well. They don't call this place the Bible Belt for kicks.
