RE: Christian Formation and the Cost of the Culture Wars
So??? Different people have different interests, and for some, their channel to politics is through their religious organization - if you understood religions to be political activities, you would not be so frustrated.

Humanism - ontological doctrine that posits that humans define reality
Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality
Atheism - political doctrine opposed to theist doctrine in public policy
I am right, and you are wrong - I hope you die peacefullyCool

I really don't know what to make of that.

In a way, it's a good thing that they don't really know the bullshit that they are supposed to believe.

What comes across most profoundly is the lack of any form of critical thinking.

I would have liked to have known how the non-believers had responded to the assignment.

That's all it should be for atheists to understand. Religions and political activities have the same result for atheists - social organization of community and society.

Humanism - ontological doctrine that posits that humans define reality
Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality
Atheism - political doctrine opposed to theist doctrine in public policy

Its what I was thinking. I wanted to read the non believer answers as well. But the article makes it sound like a religious school so any non-believer activity is probably not terribly obvious.
