    I can respect someone practicing their religion on themselves (and like minded people), but when they practice their religion on others, that's when they can bet on us NOT being friends, as they are showing disrespect for what other people believe.
    Well, personally, I'll always disrespect what a person beleives . . . just not the person's right to beleive it.

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A teacher in the predominantly Mormon state of Utah was placed on administrative leave after she forced a Catholic student to wash off the Ash Wednesday cross from his forehead.

    William McLeod, 9, had just returned to his school near Salt Lake City after attending Catholic mass when his fourth-grade teacher called the ash marking “inappropriate” and gave him a hand wipe to clean it off in front of his classmates, grandmother Karen Fisher said.
    ======================================
    Utah is a virtual theocracy, apparently intolerant of other religious views beyond the LDS.
    Is the teacher a mormon? It's equally probable she's a mormon or a liberal woman with some fake studies degree.

    If you start attending school in the morning you would go to the evening mass and get it then.

    The thing is that the little boy tried to explain the significance of the ashes to his teacher, but she wouldn't listen, handed him an antibacterial wipe, and made him remove it.

    The teacher clearly just didn't know any better, which is surprising. Also surprising is her not using her classroom computer or phone to Google.

    Odd, particularly given that Anglicans also observe Ash Wednesday and the imposition of ashes. So do Lutherans and Episcopalians and many Methodists and Presbyterians too. Ash Wednesday - Wikipedia

    to be fair, "Anglican" is just the place holder you mark on a census form if you don't believe but don't want to be an atheist. no crud their weekly attendance is super low.

    That is an outrageous falsehood and a comment that is beneath contempt.

    I might have mentioned before, waiting outside while a pal attended confession, etc. before going off on semi-lawful after-school escapades with the slate wiped clean. It's not that I didn't see them, just marked foreheads. The occasional Hindu woman might be seen with a red bindi, but that was it.
    As you said Anglican is a box-ticking religion, nominally Catholic lite. So lite that a vicar once declared that a belief in the resurrection was not necessary!
