Y’all know how much I love me some Facebook drama. When this image came up in my ACTUAL feed, with an ACTUAL caption of “Just something to think about,” I lost my mind and immediately screencapped that shit.
Here are some things to think about:
Maybe you should do some research into the socioeconomic status of inmates and then tell me whether poverty or secular education is a better predictor of which kids end up in prison.
Why do you need the Bible to instruct kids to be good, fair, and honest? Can’t you instil a sense of right and wrong in children without appealing to religion?
Why is it up to the schools to teach kids about the Bible? Shouldn’t that be done at home? At Church?
Furthermore, why is it the school’s responsibility to raise your children? Why isn’t the onus on parents to teach their kids not to engage in criminal activity?
Why teach just the Bible? What about the Torah, the Qur’an, the Book of Mormon, the – I don’t know – the religious texts from every world religion?
Why not foster a sense of community in children, over a belief that one religion is “right” or better than another? Wouldn’t that be a more effective way to teach kids about their responsibility to each other and society at large, instead of discriminating against other faiths by forcing non-Christian public school kids to believe in the Bible?
I could go on, but you get the point. I’m no expert, but I think it’s worth looking into the real root causes of crime and thinking about how those issues can be addressed rather than furthering your own religious agenda by mindlessly posting stupid images like this to Facebook.
