Well, I'll humor you.

With how american's education system it's not bad idea to send kids off to ranch once in while to work up to 8 hours a day. Might do well to improving their work ethic. Something that's actually useful to learn for real life out there. There are many lazy people who have s*** work ethic.


It is a bad idea when it is being done because a community leader wants free labor and is taking the kids out of school outside a school approved program that gives them some sort of credit.

If and when they try it! Why couldn't the SCOTUS just say "LOL NOPE" And be done with it!?
If Judeo-Christian God exists, he creates and destroys indiscriminately. He loves and hates all. That's pretty badass

Because the complainant was both a rich business owner and pulled out the FREEDOM OF RELIGION card, thus basically auto-winning a majority of the Supreme Court to their side no matter what they were trying to accomplish without a single **** being given to the kind of legal precedent it was setting.

Christianity did serve as the starter for scientific and other forms of progress in the past, but only because it was the only real game in town. Now there is better work being done by better people.

I'm a Persian and Zoroastrian.

I don't want sex orgies.


I don't see how your personal preferences in the year 2014 is relevant to what a long-dead culture felt on a societal level.

Christianity civilized your backwards Pagan nonsense, and Christianity wouldn't exist without Persian influence.


And your ancestral culture wouldn't exist without the sex-obsessed Babylonians and Assyrians. I don't really see what either of those facts have to do with the current discussion.

Those heathen religions have no place in the world of modern empirical science. Don't make me take out my shamshir.


Sooo... basically here to call the kettle black then?

The greatest minds have been celibate (e.g., Nikola Tesla),

What about Isaac Newton, final bahamut? Wasn't he also famously reputed to be a virgin when he died?

Famously reputed, yes, but standing theory is that he and Nicholas Fatio may have had something going on and that the clash between Newton's religious beliefs and his sexual feelings caused a mental breakdown. It is known that he was never married. However, by all accounts Newton was not really what you'd call an altogether well person. It is possible that a religious issue with his own homosexuality could lead to such isolationist behaviour, or it could be that he was a straight up asexual, possibly in conjecture with schizotypal personality disorder which would go some ways to explain his behaviour.

Meanwhile: Charles Babbage. Brilliant mind who invented nearly everything including the computer in the 1830s, had lots of kids with a hot woman. Or Richard "bowchicka wow wow" Feynman. Or Marie Curie.

Answered no, but technically it would have to be yes - seeing that religion cause wars, which brings progress.
