Asguard, I never said that *anything* else being taught to a child is wrong. In fact, I said My point of contention comes with the fact that parents force their own religion on their children, and I just don't agree with this. Ethics and morals are somethng completely different. They are mandatory to living a quality life, not walking all over other people, not raping, killing and so forth. That's just showing respect for yourself and others, but religion is in a class by itself. For instance, let's assume that there is some kind of absolute truth. Let's say (for example's sake) that Islam turns out to be the one and only true path to God. All those children that were baptised that day are now damed to hell, because they are Christian and in Islam, if you worship any being besides Allah, and Allah alone, you are going to hell. Christianity worships a trinity (father, son and holy ghost). Those little kids, whose parents made them become Christian through that ceremony have damed them forever. My point is that each individual should be able to decide for themselves, when they attain the age of reason, what path they are going to take. Regardless of religious beleifs though, all of humanity should be taught basic ethics and morals.
