This particularly spoke to me:
teachers not trained in the subtle distinction between teaching religion (unconstitutional) and teaching about religion (essential).
It IS essential to teach comparative religion. We have now, a nation that oozes hypocrisy because the only religion people hear comes from a place that makes it's living 'teaching' that religion. Their income depends on keeping that religion the primary one.
Great way to set up battles between religions themselves plus people who do not believe in a god.
Comparative religion would allow people to see what the teachings of their own religion are as well as the teachings of the religions of others. There are so many ways religions agree with one another--including many that believe theirs is the one and only true religion.
If we spent half the time reaching out to others and actually caring about others that we do fighting about religion, we would be a fantastic people!
