Looking back, I remember I had to in school. I just thought it was normal at the time, but now it seems dodgy as hell, trying to get kids in the Christian mindset like that.

What are your thoughts on this

I went to a catholic primary school, so yeah. Not every day though, just once a week. Then came catholic high school, which was as far removed for catholicism as you can imagine.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
Everyday

They only added the "under god" cuz Communist Soviet Union and their official atheism. It is a retarded gesture though.

Yeah, CofE primary school for me.

Tbh I don't really have a problem with it. If parents want to send their kids to a religious school, let them. Provided you have state secular schools, it shouldn't be an issue.

Prayers, Hymns, Stories from the Bible etc - it doesn't hurt kids to be taught this anyway. Although maybe revelations is a bit much for a 5 year old.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

A pledge that needs to be renewed every morning is kind of a shitty pledge.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Geology. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

If you want nameplates or modified images for avatars, pm me to your heart's content. I may or may not ever get around to them, I'm lazy like that, but I'll get around to them at some point. Maybe.
Yeah. I (or at least I used to) know Our Father in Irish, English, and Welsh. The Irish and Welsh has faded away but the English one remains to heart, the stubborn fuckin' thing;

Spoiler
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name, on Earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,
and forever hold our peace.
Amen


I feel like there should be more (something about fruit, maybe a hail mary in there, or I could be mixing it up with the Irish school prayer I used to have

It made some sense in Ireland because it was a Catholic Primary school in a predominantly Catholic country, but in Britain in Secondary school I couldn't understand why. I ended up not bothering here, seeing as I didn't believe in it and was wisening up to peer pressure, so while everyone bowed and got on with it I remained upright and sat silently.

I remember my brother got into trouble about it in Primary school (<12y/o) because he didn't do it once, and it turns out in public schools it is/(was?) compulsory to do the prayer at a morning assembly. No mention of forcing the kids to do it though.

The older I got the more I questioned the whole point of it, many of the kids weren't religious at all or were merely christened out of tradition and weren't devout. There was this Jehovah kid who always had to wait outside the halls during assembly, assumedly because of the Christian prayer. I wondered how the hell he ever got information, because occasionally there was something actually important going on and he wouldn't hear about it.

Don't remember doing it in primary school, although we did it in my CofE middle school every day.

When I lived there, I don't remember explicitly having to pray, despite going to a catholic school, however I remember going to the church across the street a lot, and when I switched to a private school I remember going to the church they had on the school grounds a couple of times.

Even got to ring the church bells once.
