S/O of bible in school

So let's reverse this a bit or flip it. What if I was passing around Wiccan information to your young children without your knowledge? Woudl the school even go for it then? How would you react? Be honest, no point in lying.

  • I don't think a book or pamphlet about ANY religion or sect should be passed around at schools.

  • I don't think an adult should come into an elementary school and pass out any religious material. Period.

  • What? Like something like this would ever happen. . . Talk about a "hypothetical"!


    Just kidding.  You know how I feel about it.  It is not okay. 


    I don't object to kids learning about different beliefs, but the school is not the place for proselytizing or promoting religion.  This is a matter best left to the parents to decide what, when and how to expose their children to religious beliefs and propaganda or texts.

  • Sorry, OP. I allowed a troll to bait me into hijacking your post.

    To answer the question, I would have a problem with any religious material being passed out to students in my kids' elementary school.

  • Doubt the school would be willing to let them pass out material, but it still isn't the appropriate place to do so

  • now there are news reports stating that White County TN schools have already banned Bibles from being passed out during school as it violates the constitution in that it is Establishing a religion, so it is already proven that Tennessee has a history of these incidents occurring in other schools. So even without knowing the OP of the other post, there is no reason to suspect she is stating false information based on past incidents in the area. When someone hides behind anon, however and offers no evidence other than "She's lying' well, it's not a very believable testimony.

  • I really have nothing to prove to an anon who's just trying to start shit. But I can say that I do know J, have been friends with her for, what is it a year and a half to two years, and I can tell anyone that she isn't a liar.

  • What is coincidental about it happening in a neighboring county and then to her own school district weeks later? Not much coincidental about that.
