    I suppose having any church within earshot is indoctrination too.

    Let's try this again. A kid coming home with a bible from a public school. You see no problem?

    (Appropriate screen name you go there).

    1: to instruct especially in fundamentals or rudiments : teach
    2: to imbue with a usually partisan or sectarian opinion, point of view, or principle

    So perhaps it's not as long as the kid doesn't actually open the bible and read it. I'm sure that's the purpose of the give away.

    A child's teachings about morality and making good judgement calls should never just stop because they are not around thier parents. That would just lead the kid to think that it is ok to do something bad any time that they want as long as thier parents are not around.
    I disagree with that. Teachers are not there to babysit. They are there to teach. The child should have been taught at home that the teacher is the person in charge and they should be respected as such. It isn't the job of the teacher to sit a child down and teach them right from wrong. If a kid is punished at school, is the parent not notified? Getting in trouble for homework and fighting are consequences. Bullying...that is another story.

    Right, so if I leave a copy of Mein Kampf at a school, it's guaranteed that any kid that reads it will become Hitlers mini-me?

    So school children should be able to choose abortion, but not a bible.

    .
    Nope I don't have a problem with it as long as other religious texts are available for distribution as well. In this case the school prohibited the distribution of other religious texts and is in the wrong for that.

    I don't look at it as indoctrination, I look at it as someone passing around a flyer. The students aren't forced to take the bibles or texts so I don't see an issue here. If they don't want it, they don't have to take it. But if the school makes one availalbe, they have to make all available.

    I wasn't aware children got abortions at school, perhaps you can show us the link where this happens?

    So you'd have no problem if your kid brought Mein Kampf home from school and said the school was giving them away?
