The family should be the ones to do that. Not everyone has the same religion anyway.

Children benefit from Religious Education.I feel it should be taught in schools as not only does it explore different faiths, religions and cultures, but also many different ways of thinking and contemporary moral issues.

Yes. We should leave Religion to the family. It is a sensitive topic and we don't want to create confusion and chaos to kids.

Children should be taught about all religions in an abjective way. Then when they grow up, they should be able to choose one of them to follow, if any. Otherwise it is indictrination. In my country there are two hours if Religious Education per week. It’s more than science or artistic subjects, I don’t think it is beneficial for children’s education.

Theology, yes. Religion, no. The latter typically favours one over another.

I agree with you. If all Religions will be discussed and studied by students, then they can choose the Religion that resonate with them.

No. Let them discover about it on their own time and way.

Agree completely. The basics of all the most common religions should be taught and analyzed from above and not treated like they're proven and definite facts. Like a theology class. Even atheists can enjoy learning about religion which is very interesting. I think teaching this way would help young kids learn to have tolerance and respect for others' differing beliefs which is often not the case especially in the school systems I've grown up in.

I don't really disagree with you and think that your idea is a natural way to do it, but the reason I believe many religions should be taught- as informative lessons, but not as a regionally-based biased truth- is because so so many young students are stuck in their family's beliefs that they grew up with and were taught that they were the only correct ones. If they don't have a good opportunity to learn about alternatives that may speak to them early on in life they may never let go of that prejudice against others with differing beliefs. The older you are, the more set in your ways you get, from what I've experienced.

I was in a Catholic School when I was in high school, we have a Theology subject. Since, I am a Catholic, I enjoyed it but for some who have different Religion can't really understand it.

My comment is based on my experience. I was born and raised as a Catholic and I grew up in an environment where beliefs have been built as Religion as the foundation. I am still a Catholic but I never judge other religions. I am in a spiritual path right now, and LOVE is the only religion we all should follow.

I would prefer Religion to be out of the school subject or be part of a curriculum. It will just create a mental confusion to the children.

Schools should focus on teaching useful subjects and leave religion out of it. They don't even have time to teach everything in their curriculum.

If students learn about the religion, they'll get used to believing whatever the church tells them. They'll be prejudiced at a young age.
