Atheists Flock to Secular Sunday School
Christian kids are typically sent to Sunday school for lessons on the Bible and morals. For nonbelievers, there's atheist Sunday school.

With an estimated 14 percent of Americans professing to have no religion, according to the Institute for Humanist Studies, some are choosing to send their children to classes that teach ethics without religious belief.

Bri Kneisley sent her 10-year-old son, Damian, to Camp Quest Ohio this past summer after a neighbor had shown him the Bible.

"Damian was quite certain this guy was right and was telling him this amazing truth that I had never shared," said Kneisley, who realized her son needed to learn about secularism, according to Time magazine. ...

Very funny, 33k.

In this case the RCC does not teach it. It's self-evidently a personal opinion.

Lance,
Your "Rome has told me so" dogma does not count as evidence.

TULSA, Oklahoma - The former president of Oral Roberts University told students that he did not want to resign from his post at the scandal-plagued evangelical Christian school, but that he did so because God insisted.

God told him on the Thanksgiving holiday last week that he should resign the next day, Richard Roberts told students in the university's chapel Wednesday.

"Every ounce of my flesh said 'no'" to the idea, Roberts said, but he prayed over the decision with his wife and his father, Oral Roberts, the school's founder, and decided to step down.

his god told him on the thangsgiving
holiday

man, talk about ironic

God told me the same thing a while ago

Im sure He told roberts also, all he had
to do was read his Bible
Someone in the Bible said something
about every plant not planted by....

" My tounge is in cheek here, but why in the world would anyone who did not believe in God bother with Sunday school? I do believe and I think it's still a pain in the neck to get out of bed and go; if I were athiest I would sleep in. Another point, see how sticky the atheist argument gets: we choose our own morals, okay then every jail and prison should be torn down and every prisoner released."
____

Don't most modern day Christians choose their own morals? Name which Commandment they do not break--or which of Jesus Christ's Words they adhere to.

They are like the Israelites of the OT that went astray from God and did what was right in their own eyes—forsaking the laws, statutes and commandments of God.

In the love of Jesus Christ with prayers

"Darwinism: Survival without Purpose"

http://www.icr.org/article/3513/

"Erase all thought and fear of God from a community, and selfishness and sensuality would absorb the whole man. Appetite, knowing no restraint, and suffering, having no solace or hope, would trample in scorn on the restraints of human laws. Virtue, duty, principle, would be mocked as unmeaning sounds. A sordid self-interest would supplant every feeling; and man would become, in fact, what the theory of atheism declares him to be--a companion for brutes."

TULSA, Okla. - Oral Roberts University, the debt-ridden evangelical institution riven by scandal, has been handed a $70 million lifeline.

Mart Green, founder of the Christian office and educational supply store chain Mardel, said Tuesday he would immediately give $8 million to the university, with the rest to come after a 60-to-90-day review of the university's financial records.

Green said his family must approve the financial review before the $62 million is given and is requesting at least two seats on the board of regents for his family members.

will they take the money for sunday
school

Mart Green, founder of the Christian office and educational supply store

"I'm a person that doesn't believe in myths," says Hana, 11. "I'd rather stick to the evidence."

To which she means, "I'd rather believe what these fallible humans who weren't there and don't know everything have to say about history, and not believe what you who claim to have a book written by someone who was there and does know everything has to say about what He did."

Yep. That's a great way to teach your children logical thought.

Without an infinitely moral source stating what is and is not right or wrong the only way we can determine morality is by the loudest opinion of some men drowning out the opinions of others. Everything is relative if there is no absolute authority.

A true atheist can't say that the brutal torture and murder of his family is evil because to them there is no such thing. It's just one person's opinion against another's.

Either man determines reality, or God does. I've picked which source I have more confidence believing.

Ethics without religious belief?
