Required Readings

Required Readings, 30 June 2012

Good morning everyone, I hope you’re all having a great weekend! I also hope you enjoy my first post in the site! The post covers studies confirming that our strife is having the effects we want it to have and some interesting opinions (not necessarily correct, in my opinion).

Study reveals changes in attitude toward religion, morality, politics and other issues – some worrisome issues to resolve, but all in all, it’s an improvement.

Religious schools are a foundation of American tradition – or they are just a way to keep your kids enclosed in a religious bubble?

Public schools should not be battlegrounds for religion – and I couldn’t agree more.

Religious education does not attempt to indoctrinate school pupils – just a couple useful clarifications in the first letter. Wish that were true in other parts of the world.

    Ugh — that article about parochial schools is just ridiculous! Slavery is also a tradition in America. So is… well, a LOT of crap. It doesn’t mean that we should keep doing them. Tradition for tradition’s sake? Sounds like Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery to me.

    Good job on your first RR, Mauricio!
