Childern aren't threatend by diversity. Parents are! *MOST* young childern are very honest in thier perception of things. You ask a little kid if you have a big head, they will tell you if you do! Like it or not...... Most don't care if your black, white purple, pagan, jewish ...etc...... You put a group of young childern in a room together, all they want to do is play. Color, race, ethnicity doesn't play into it... Sure they don't know what it is.... but at the basic level of life.... it dosen't matter.... Only as adult do labels come into the picture....

Childern are who adults should look towards in learning tolerance.

The parents I had to work with in the icky high school I taught in (it was not Catholic) were so narrow minded it was frightening. They passed their ignorance on to their children. Rather than teaching them to think for themselves and to look at the entire world they were teaching them that "Their way is the only way." Pathetic.

I agree, parents should look to the innosence of their children and learn.

yes, I can relate to that Janey..
My schools gave me the best education available, but always with that Chrisitian-shook-forefinger behind it. That's where I learned to filter said things thoroughly for ideologies behind them.

But what can I say, I learned and I learned different things for life. I would never ever have a go at someone because they are from a different background as my own. My parents would never even think about it twice if I told them I was wiccan, shinto, satanist or hindu from now on.. While my mothers family or my fathers family might be a different matter. My grandma actually asked me if I was a satanist (I wore my favourite black dress and a black onyx pendant which was just an ornament, not even a symbol). *shrugs*

Falachaid, welcome back, I missed you, as so did all I would guess! Hope your hubby is home safe!

But I wouldn't say I am a particularly courageous person, I just would never ever judge a person because of their religious views or their political views. I mean, it's something that was taught to me by my parents and something I just don't like in people, if they judge people because they are seemingly depicting the unknown (may it be wicca, hinduism, Islam or whatever it may be).

On this same note. As my hubby says, "Ignorance is taught not learned". if you but a black child and a white child in a room from birth til they were 18 with no outside influence when they get out will have NO idea what racism is. Nor would they see the other as a different color at all, just a darker or lighter shade of themselves.


hey Celeste it would also mean there had been no teaching of intolerance in their lives, it would mean they had never seen a TV, Radio or newspaper. Which brings me to another question. Why Dear Celeste Do you have these two adorable Children all locked up? sounds sort of cruel to me. biggrin.gif ::Let them out. At leaast let them go to school with the Wiccan teacher biggrin.gif Oh well to each their own

May you remember this when you raise your own children!! beer.gif This is something more parents need to keep in mind. Teach the children to think.......not teach the children to think like you. biggrin.gif

I agree. Celeste let you babies out to experience the world and gain some social skills. If you hide the child from the world and the world from the child everyone loses. angel_not.gif

I'm sure you all were kidding, but just to clear up the record.... I don't believe in locking children away it was merely an example. My children all have they're own ideas and my husband and I respect that.

Maybe next time some people will read the posts and not just wait for they're turn to talk.

And as to tolerance. That word over here is so misused and overused it has become bastardized. I cringe every time I read it.



... I agree with Shadows (gasp) in that no one should be teaching their religion in a public school anyway.

Tolerance is all about respect and respect is about knowing. And when there are beliefs I do not know about, I reserve judgment until I do. ...


OK so what is wrong with agreeing with Shadows???? tongue.gif
Truths are truths no matter what.

yeah, but ignorance can be self-chosen or involuntarily!

Man people today chose to remain ignorant of what goes on around them and will stay tight-minded all their lives

Sounds like one of the art teachers in my middle school. I don't wish ill on anyone, but we celebrated when she died (I was still attending school there).

You were lucky if you didn't get saturday school for making a comment that Elvis was dead.
