Bulgarian Orthodox Christians rally for religious education
« on: September 24, 2010, 02:24:00 PM »
Ten thousand people turned out at a rally in the Bulgarian capital, Sofia. The march was led by the Bulgarian Orthodox Patriarch, Maxim.

The attendees called for religious education from the very beginning of public schooling at nursery school, up to and including the twelfth grade.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Religion at school is a bad thing.

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

I would say it's just boring, not bad. In my experience.
"I saw a miracle where 2 people entered church one by baptism and one by chrismation. On pictures the one received by full baptism was shinning in light the one by chrismation no."

Here in the UK Religious Education is compulsory for every year group. That's how I earn my living. Even parents who are not themselves followers of a religion seem to appreciate their children knowing about faith. In six years of full-time teaching I have never met a parent who is opposed to their child being in my classes.
