sodomizer: Public schools are worthless at this point. The kids learn more propaganda and civics than actual information, and come out of the schools without having learned any critical thinking or analysis skills. If the church opposes this kind of "education," I might have to convert.


If you think the church is going to help develop critical thinking or analysis skills, perhaps you're just the kind of savvy investor I've been looking for. What if I told you I had an amazing investment opportunity in the form of these magic beans?

The Irresponsible Captain: Churches should have little role in public education; mainly to encourage children to go and finish high school, and to provide support in any way they can. However, the Catholic church really did do a great service to it's followers with it's big push for education post-war. Other faiths... well YMMV.

/What would a Pagan school look like?


Shrines to various deities everywhere, many classes held outdoors and most of the debates would be overly polite with the occasional "Don't tell me what to do. You're doing it wrong." from the more aggressive types.

I'd have loved to go to a Pagan/Heathen school that honored the Wheel of the Year, at least, maybe some of the Heathen specific holidays as well. The Wheel of the Year has 8 holidays, four of them major, and the Heathenfolk, depending on what type of Heathen (Asatru, Forn Sed, Nordisk Sed, Irminist, Anglo Saxon, etc etc) you could have one or two parties a month, as schools tend to do for their students. I loves me a good party!

That's how they don't not write things in the Bible. That's is why you shouldn't never not read it.

WI241TH: kid_icarus: "The basis of Christianity or even that of the black church, or any religion that is concerned about humanity. There is no dichotomy between spirituality and education, or liberation," said Stallworth.


Actually there is when your religion is actively opposed to real, science-based education. There's a f**king huge "dichotomy".

Wait, a black church is Satan worshipers, right?

He's not implying churches with black congregations are based on something other than Christianity, is he?


That's what I got out of that statement.
