It really depends on the public school.

My middle school... yes, that qualified as s*** that went down. (By the time my sister attended it though it had apparently changed quite a bit for the better.)

My high school was awesome though, and hopefully still is. Though it was in some way the public equivalent to private. No tuition, but you still had to apply and be accepted.

I would love to have had a comparative religion class in school, mostly because I find the subject fascinating, but also because I think it's important to have if you're going to live in the world.

There's a religion professor out of Boston University who would give his freshman Intro to Religion students a religious literacy test on their first day of school.

A lot of people did very badly.

When I was attending grade school we still sang prayer before eating lunch, but that was while we still had state church.

At least we didn't have the teacher my dad's uncle had. He forced the kids to tell all the sins they had done before starting class, and the worst ones would get the Spanish rod.

Man, I must live in the nicest community
I live in the Bible Belt of a country that have had a state church since 1687 to 2012. So there is a lot of various types of religious people around.

Most you meet are nice, though.

I grew up fundamentalist/ Oneness Pentecostal (a cult like, heretical offshoot of Christianity) and am now an agnostic with atheist leanings.

Mostly though, I am in the proverbial closet when it comes to family and friends.

Don't worry, I have no strong feelings about religion one way or the other.

Good, I'm not the only one who immediately thought 'art style.' lol

Any art related to Cubism now has to be in the style of cubism, this is a must.

If I had a religion, it would be Yog-Sothotery. Meaning of life doesn't exist unless you make it for yourself.

If there are any gods, they are some kind of primal cosmic principles, who don't know what they're doing.

edit: I'm all for worship, though. Somehow I find praising deities soothing and... fun.

I admit to snickering pretty hard every time I pass the local Catholic parish, with their "Catholics Come Home" sign out front.

Trust me, father. You wouldn't want me back.

I'm surprised this thread hasn't been locked, and that there wasn't much flaming at all. Maybe the mods will allow this to continue as long as the discussion isn't full of abuse.

Give it time. Not to be pessimistic, but ending in a ball of flames seems to be part of the natural life cycle of many forum threads.
