Pro-tip: want “kids these days” to stay active in church? Don’t focus on silly fears and hate: focus on Jesus’ message of Love, compassion for the poor and weak, and prayer and songs to God. That’s the kind of Sunday School I went to as a child, and though I’m not Christian, I have nothing but respect and appreciation for those Christians who practice charity instead of prejudice.
“Their argument is that it is a religious activity and therefore should be banned while the same time saying we need religion in schools.”
Bonus: “I bet those religious nut jobs wouldn’t mind at all if the school did the exact same activities, but called them Praise Moves.”
