Kirk Cameron is like Kirk Cameron.
People have varying degrees of belief (as in any other country) and even those who technically share his religion seem to mostly disagree with him.
I really dislike the “all of the people in [whatever] country” questions - I have disagreements with my co-workers all the time about politics, racism, and so forth.
I find it incredibly simplistic to assume that a whole country has some sort of group think.
Exactly. Every group has a handful of idiots and extremists, but unfortunately those are the most vocal and the ones people find most interesting.
I’m reminded of something a guy wrote on his blog, in which he dissected Jack Chick Tracts, specifically one which insisted that evolution and God could not both exist. The guy pointed out that it was possible for both to be true and that he knew religious people who liked evolution for that reason - they saw it as an incredibly clever system for God to create.
And yeah, I agree with the girl. I’ve NEVER, in any of my public school-going years, seen students forbidden from bringing to school or opening in school any sort of religious work. In fact in high school we had classes devoted to studying pieces of religious work. We read about them for homework. We talked about religion in class discussions. Heck, the school had clubs for different religious groups. They just didn’t bring it up in classes like Biology or Physics and didn’t do prayer in homeroom.
And I liked how she pointed out that schools also don’t hand out Korans and no one complains about that. People who complain about no prayers in school and that stuff seem to forget that there are kids in school who are members of religions other than Christianity. I knew kids in high school who were Jewish, Muslim, and Morman. My best friend was Pagan. And kids who aren’t don’t have any religious affiliations (atheist, agnostic, just don’t have any thoughts on the matter).
