Christians make up for 33% of the world’s population. Muslims 20%, Hindus 13%, Buddhists 6%, others 13%, and atheists 14%. Religion is to blame for the crusades and Al-Qaeda so it’s obvious that such radical bel
I mostly agree with you, I’m not religious and I’m happy about that, religion is nothing for me. But I think religion is an very interesting thing and being religious is completely fine when you don’t force others to be in your religion too or hate them for not being religious.
Hello Kathryn. I admire your courage to speak up about a topic that can be quite controversial, and considered offensive to many people. I love that you took both positive and negative views on the idea of religion. Especially in times like these, where religious groups are being pushed into stereotypes, and foolish assumptions are being made of truly faithful, good people I thank you for helping spread more points of views in this topic.
Hey Kathryn, I really enjoyed this topic even though it can be so controversial and can cause a lot of hate speech and arguing. One main point that stood out to me would be that you took both sides and didn’t just swerve to one so there wouldn’t be that much of a bias opinion and both sides could agree and understand each other’s stand point. Your point in this article really reminds me of back when I use to go to church it, it brought this memory up because I use to be really religious until I stopped going to church so I can understand both sides of the context. Thank you for sharing your post I look foward to your future content.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
