Also, remember, part of that peer pressure is $$$, the resource of humanity.

Peer pressure is incredibly powerful yet even more powerful is what you have been trained to think as a child.

John, to answer your question about religion in public schools it is generally prohibited.  It is difficult to know because I can't see behind closed doors.  Basically you do not teach religion in school especially by way of inferring it as  total truth.  If religion is taught it is generally acceptable if it is taught as showing cultural tradition, history and mixed with other types of religion.  We all know that it doesn't always happen that way. 

 

Having chaplains in Australian schools is also very intrusive.  Ultimately religions profit from converting young children into believers of lies.  It is very abusive of powers and trust.

Wow you have an atheist prime minister, that is swell.  On the funny side though, the word atheist and minister just doesn't flow.  I will check out the link you gave me.  The reason I asked is because there are 19 states that continue to allow corporal punishment in U.S.A.  Ultimately I believe part of it has to do with religious belief imposed on children.

Is there corporal punishment in public schools of Australia?

Greetings, John! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
