Carol Platt Liebau: Not Exactly a Shocker

Not Exactly a Shocker

Children with religious parents are better behaved and adjusted than those without them, according to a new study.

The kids whose parents regularly attended religious services — especially when both parents did so frequently — and talked with their kids about religion were rated by both parents and teachers as having better self-control, social skills and approaches to learning than kids with non-religious parents.

This is, of course, hardly a shocker. It stands to reason that behavior will be better when a child comes from a climate where the Golden Rule is, in fact, a rule, rather than a simple recommendation.

Obviously, the Constitution forbids the establishment of a religion, but studies like this one ineluctably suggest that behavior in schools might be better if, in fact, faith in general weren't so unwelcome there.

Carol, faith is unwelcome because the MSM and the Dems have no faith.

I assume this applies to Kara Beth Borden and David Ludwig whose very religious parents isolated them from all the worldly things that corrupt say Buddhist children, children of same swex partners, the children of agnostics or even atheists. Pray tell Carol could you interview Kara Beth's parents for me and tell me what their secrets to good parenting are?

This absolutely incredible level of intellectual dishonesty in cav's post is a perfect example of his hatred of Christianity. If one looks at the overwhelming examples supporting Carol's post against the isolated aberrations cited by cav, one can be forgiven one's contemptuous response. Cav, get a life. Your current one seems rather pathetic.
