With all of the religious issues we've been hearing in the news lately, I'm thinking that it might not be a bad idea to teach religion in schools.
I don't mean ONE religion. I mean to have a class that specifically looks at all religions, or the belief in no religion, and their basic ideologies/principles, how they started, who they worship, and why.
I started having this conversation with a few friends earlier this week. My personal belief is that it could help promote tolerance and understanding. So many people make inaccurate comments that are fueled by propaganda, and they really have no idea what they are talking about.
What do you think?
Should we include religious studies as long as it is an all inclusive class to provide information without promoting a single religion?
Would this fuel the fire more?
Would it not make any difference at all?
