why should religion not be taught in schools

Yes because otherwise children may grow up ignorant, disrespectful, and intolerant of other people's faith
This is not just a problem to address atheists. It also encourages religious people to respect other people's religion and customs. Some people fast. Some people don't eat pork. Some people don't eat cow meat. Some people choose to wear skull caps. Some people have red spots on their forehead. Some wear a cross on a necklace. It's things like that which people should learn why it's important to those people, and to not be ignorant as to sneer at them for those choices. RE encourages a more tolerant and respectful society. As in History Class? Schools already teach religion. It's in our history books. We all learn about the many different forms of religion. But what is absolutely over the line is for a school to choose a single religion (say Christianity) and force students to say a pray or the pledge of allegiance. Learning about religion is one acceptable thing, but practicing religion in school is absolutely unacceptable First of all I am a non religious person and believe in freedom of religion to all. Religions should be learned about but not Forced on someone.


It should be a class that students choose to take and have options to choose from such religion in regions. This will help teach kids about acceptance and other cultures. Why on earth should religious classes be allowed in school? It's school not church. School is a place where you are taught the facts that are being discovered and have been proven to be true, evolution, the big bang, and other forms of science. Granted they are "theories" but they have been tested an observed so far as much as they are capable, but it is what is fact right now. If you want a religious lesson then go to your local church. No, Not in Public Schools Religion should not be taught in public schools, religion is dying out and it shouldn't be kept up in the next generation. There are religious schools and religious students should enroll there, there is no real reason to bring something so biased into something full of new beginnings also I cant be the only one to see there would be massive conflict between the religious and the evolutionists. It shouldn't happen We live in a diverse and religiously free society.


Religion is something that belongs at home with the family, not in any kind of government sponsored or required activity. Because children are required to go to school, and education is too important to risk children being pulled from school for personal reasons like religion, religion has no place in the school system. Though my secondary school dosent teach religion, my primary school was very religious. We were taught religion at least 2 times a day and every assembly we had to sing hymns'. Anyway, school is for learning. Not church. Not everyone is a religious person and most parents dont want their children in school learning religion. No, i dont want to learn the ten commandments. No, i dont want to know whats in a sinnogogue. No, i dont want to know the story of how jesus got crucified on easter. Its all utter pointless to some who can learn better things than religion. No it should not be. I am not religious and I think that religion and what it's made people do should be talked about in history classes. Also church is church and school is school. If a student is not religious, why force them to read a bible?


If a child is Muslim, why take the Quran out of their hands and slap a bible in their face? Church and state were separated for a reason. Children need to learn facts about how our world was created, not opinions. School is not church. You learn religion at home, and at church. Its not needed in schools. Because some kids have different beliefs. So some kids might feel offended if other kids are talking about how there belief is best and better. So I say schools shouldn't have religion in school.

Religion which is something that should be taught by families and does not have a place in public schools. The government has no right to teach religion to children and therefore possibly change their minds. Every student must be taught the facts, not some random beliefs without any proof of being reliable.
