I wonder how a modern day All in the Family episode would deal with this garbage.

I know many people have tremendous fear of learning and being exposed to other information; but really, information is information.
Nothing more, nothing less.

Do you think Muslim parents would be pleased if they went to a Christian church and worshiped Jesus Christ without their permission?
Since there's no proof of any god-thing to begin with...

Your fear-based comment has not been shown to have any credibility.
You are assuming something because that's how you want it to be.
Where's the link stating that parents were mad?

Why would anyone mind their kids being exposed to other religions? Seriously, what's the fear?
From exposure comes understanding.
Understanding defeats ignorance and fear.
Win - Win.

Aren't you the one who started a poll and thread defending a gay Saudi diplomat wanting assylum in the USA because his life was at risk? Did you call him an Islamophobe? Think not. Your hypocrisy is transparent.

I find the fact that they took a field trip to a mosque pretty objectionable, that doesn't quite sound like it should be something a public school should be doing..

In addition, what kid WOULDN'T want to go on a field trip? there were a few field trips that I didn't really want to go on, but it was better than sitting in class and falling asleep during math time.

It sounds like a Cultural Trip which is common in the Northeastern part of the US , you go places and learn about different cultures for a day. It seems that ppl are once again bringing up the childish its a left thing. You do realize that we operate differently in this region? Socially left and Financially Right as possible although corruption often ruins that. They were forced , no one is converted anyone........sheesh you ppl who bring up these silly issues need to get a life and a GF.

lol....thanks for the laugh. I grew up in MA and it far from being financially right.

Socially left? Helmet laws, little to no gambling, no booze on Sundays for awhile, no booze in grocery stores, illegal marijuana, no wind farms since they destroyed Teddy's view, god awful drivers who have no respect for pedestrains and bikers, and some of the biggest a-holes in the country. I guess that is considered socially left nowadays; restrictions and loss of freedoms.

Gays can get married, school officials can talk about fisting, and you go on field trips where you prayed.

I was never brought into a temple of worship for a field trip. We walked on the freedom trail in Boston, visited NYC once, and visited Old Sturbridge Village one too many times.

But...financially right..hahaha. MA is always in debt and its not called Taxachusetts for nothing. When I left, my quality of life increased. I have little to no stress, more economic freedom, and more personal freedoms. I am not the only one who has left that sate and doesn't plan to return. There is a reason MA recently lost population. And a Boston Globe poll found that those who left the state are happy with their choice.

Like i said Corruption has ruined both parties and spending in this region. But the Social freedoms allowed this region to bond better. The Economy is actually stronger in the Northeast ,more then any other region atm. LOL , its a fast pace region , you have to be fast to live here or be left behind. As for visiting houses of Worship , alot schools due it. But you have to be invited. Ive been to Churches , Temples , a Muslim cultural center its all about learning about the different religions we live with. Its really education ,with the Muslim thing it was more of a Cultural thing than Religion. You were allowed to opt out.

There are very little social freedoms outside of gay marriage. MA is one of the least free states; both economically and personally.

Nope. MA doesn't even break the top 10. North Dakota and Alaska have the strongest economies.

Again, people are leaving the state for a better life. You can have all the economic growth you want, but it doesn't matter if you are not happy. Additionally, you need to factor in the cost of living. When you do this, your dollar doesn't go as far in MA as it does elsewhere around the country. As a state, MA has one of the highest cost of livings.

Its not the pace, but the culture of fighting. You have to fight the people, fight the traffic, fight for parking, fight the weather, etc.

We never went on field trips to houses of worships. There is a lot of culture in MA. There are so many more options for cultural field trips in MA than visiting houses of worship. I find that reason rather absurd.
