Re: “Put up symbols of all faiths” Tuesday, June 11. I’m sorry but religion brings argument of beliefs and only serves to distract from important relevant school curriculum.
A cross only conjures up the brutality around it, which isn’t good for young growing minds. The crucifixion of Christ was a senseless act of murder. Had he been allowed to live and educate families on how to raise children, we’d all be better off for it.
Instead of a cross or, worse again, a crucifix, why not put up a picture of the Madonna babe in arms and focus on eradicating bullying, which religion laid the ground for in a myriad of ways, by neglect and blatant abuse.
I heard of children nailing frogs to a piece of wood, I wonder where that idea came from? That is what happens when a young mind is brainwashed.
