I find it just about as offensive for someone to hustle a 17 year-old with anti-religionist propaganda as it would be to furnish them pornography or drugs. --Springtex

Why Springtex, I'm surprised at you! Do you not think that one 17 year old can read what another 17 year old thought about something without losing his/her grip on beliefs. Don't you think that right-wing religious organizations sponsor essay contests for high school students? Do you find that acceptable? Can you tolerate discussion of nothing that is not chapter and verse per your interpretation?

You know even in my time various religious beliefs were discussed openly among youth, sometimes with adults present, sometimes not. At what secret place did we meet for those discussions? Why, church camp, for one. Ecumenical Conferences, for another. Guess what, we were even urged to consider the possible validity of other points of view. Wow, how radical is that? But then I was a member of that radical fringe church called Presbyterian.

Check out this link, S.T. and let me know what you think. gooh:)>
