I think the time has come to confront the believers who truly "believe" that they can say or do whatever they want. Case in point, at my high school, there are a couple of teachers who are constantly using their positions to promote religion. Maybe they haven't read the Constitution or they don't understand what our Founding Fathers expected. Fortunately it looks like the ACLU is going to get involved but it should never have gone this far. Why do the religious zealots just assume that their fairy tales need to be heard and accepted by the masses without a thread of proof? Why does society give them free reins and blank checks? We laugh at having believed in Santa and the Tooth Fairy but the majority continue to accept supernatural beings, angels, miracles, etc. without a thread of evidence. This blind faith explains why, in my opinion, the masses accept the hogwash of our Christian/militarist/corporate state propaganda program. Reason and rationality welcome scrutiny and skepticism not the closed doors/hands off policy of rigid dogma. I feel better for venting.
I sure would like to hear from you on my discussion about corporal punishment.
Hi folks, I'm just starting to do my Master's in Adult Education and just found this group, and thought it might be a good place to ask some questions, get different viewpoints, and generally bounce some ideas or generate new ones.
