I think that people have different religions because in their countries they have different beliefs and different gods and they think that all religions are different, but it is not like that, they are all one,
Hi Keury, I think that this article is very unique because not a lot of people want to talk about religion because it is a sensitive topic. I personally think that the religions practiced today are so different because of how much history is in each one. Religion has been around for thousands of years, so each one has had time to make traditions that have shaped their core beliefs. By now, a lot of the traditions do not seem to make sense in our modern world (like how Muslim women separate from the men in houses), but because they have been around for so long the people have followed them because that is what they were taught to do.
HI keury, I think that i very cool that you want to know so much about different religions and why they do certain things in their culture such as the example with muslim women wearing a scarf over their face. To me religion will always be more complex then what the eye sees and it is important to learn about different culture and what makes them more unique then the next.

I had never read something that had such questions, and I was kind of taken back. Those are real questions people don’t really think about. especiallhy when religion can take a big toll on a marriage or in a ordinary relationship. (https://www.bolton.ac.uk/Chaplaincy/Worldviews/Summary.aspx) thought this might interest you.
Hey Keury, I think that your writing was important because i mean i don’t really know much religions. i think that history plays a really big roll like you said different religions have different rules, gods and have different beliefs. i think its good for people to know theses things because some people might think that we all believe in the same thing when really we have different religions.
Hi keury, i love how you opened up about this topic and talked about it. This topic can be emotional towards some. I am muslim myself and in this hatred world im human sometimes i dont feel accepted. Thank you for speaking up for all of us. I look forward to seeing what you post next.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
