Why is it that people say, “No politics and no religion”. The most interesting, controversial topics in the universe and they don’t want to talk about them. This comment is usually followed by, “They’re boring.”
I used to find golf on TV boring then I learned to play a little, learned the rules and now find it quite interesting. So is it because they don’t understand the subjects or is it because they know that we will probably end up fighting over the dinner table?
Some of the same people want religion taken out of school. Now I am strictly a non-believer, but what are they going to replace it with? There’s nothing wrong with teaching kids that murder and theft are wrong. The Jesus stories I was told when I was a nipper were really good, I didn’t become an extremist because of it.
What’s wrong with teaching small children all the nice things within religion, then when they get older they can choose if they carry on with it. After all, the only schools that will have their religious education removed are Protestant, you try to take it away from the Catholics, Muslims and Jews and see what happens.
Isn’t the Church of England supposed to be England’s national faith?
As for politics, the people who say they find politics boring, have no interest and don’t vote, make me laugh. Don’t they realise that by not voting they are voting with the majority?
