another proof that Poland is a confessional state

in short:

until today, religion lessons (lege: catholicism lessons) an ethic were optional- if you wish, you could send your children for one or for both (if the school provide ethic lessons) or for none of them.

starting from 2009, one of them will be mandatory; considering, that there is a great shortages in ethic teachers, the choice will be obvious. not to mention, that even now, catholicism lessons are in 2x 45 minutes system (per week), and ethic /if its in school/ : only 1 45minutes lesson per week. and, of course- headteacher doesn't have to provide ethic lessons in school; he may consider that when there is >7 students wanting that.

eh, just in case- thats another reason why poles are emigrating from Poland into more civilised countries :~

I must agree with G. source isn't good.

Kids need or religion or ethic classes. Don't worry about the teachers.

do they?

Don't worry about the teachers.

i'm worry about the teachers. i worry because i know, that in most cases- it will be a catholic priests 'learning' them how to pray, asking what was on a speaking on mass and telling that 'atheists and Jews and .......... * are bad and will go to hell' - and they will do it for a texpayers money; with no control (about their learning program) from school (becouse, of course, they are independent from school; what will be teached depends only from catholic bishops)

* please place here anyone who is not a catholic

Firstly ethic courses can't be taught by religion teachers it is forbiden ... it is Polish law. Don't worry about shortage of the teachers. Nobody can't be forced to go on religion classes.

1. I'm afraid, its not firbiden. Priest can make a secular course and teach 'secular' ethic.
2. I'm afraid, every student will be forced to go or to catholicism lessons teached by catholic priests, or for 'secular ethic' lessons, teached mostly by catholic priests... of course they will be secular...*

Priests?
There are not enough of them in Poland.
Usually they will be terribly undereducated poor men and women who will be totally ridiculed by everyone in the class. As they already are. Bullied or ignored. Even by 10y.o.

Have you been in Polish school recently? The only thing you should be worried about the moral / ethic / religious education is the lack of any.

Can't agree with ladykangaroo more! It isn't that important if the moral message is phrased religiously "Love your neighbour" or in secular terms -- "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". The major problem are the hordes of vicious, spoilt brats from 4 to 94 drowning the world in their selfish slime and taking their cues from Hollywood harlots, MTV mind-benders, slum-dwelling rappers and assorted sleazy celebs of our cheap, tacky and all-pervasive commercial pop culture, eagerly promoted round the clock by the sensation-seeking, scandal-mongering media.

The family, the school, the cultural community, the churches, assorted community leaders and politicans HAVE ALL FAILED to shore up collapsing public ethical standards, because they all have their own, narrow, selfish interests at stake which they claim are more imporatnt. Throw Information Technology into the picture and we are fast becoming (or have already become) a world of technical titans and....moral midgets! And to think there are horse-blinkered souls who, while trudging through all the moral rot and sludge, are wondering whether ethics or relgion classes should be taught by lay teachers or priests, philosophers, sociologists, sexuologists or the school janitor......

But who cares. Let's all lighten up, chill out, light up a joint, ain't it great?!

I have. You shouldn`t present it as an already decided fact. The article in the link you provided is marked by one big question mark. Maybe, probably, allegedly etc etc.

Can`t you see it is made as a form of an advertisement for some leftist group which uses the opportunity and expresses their objection to get a 5 minute fame in the media?

Of course they can`t introduce such a law because it would be unconstitutional.

Have you been to a British state school recently?? Polish state schools compared to British ones, not to mention American, are like heaven compared to hell. :):):)

Are you equating the lessons taught in the Cathecism with the absence of 'civilization' as you call it?...The Church was the force and institution that civilized Europe, and the

Christian faith strengthened Poland in it's time of hardship...While the Church needs to modernize certain aspects, the teachings of Christianity are essential to a moral or ethical society...What would you replace it with?...Christianity has been under attack in America for many years by the worshippers of Mammon, and you see the result we have here...Or, perhaps you don't.

Hmmm, where did you get this from? America is pretty religious overall. OK, there are two gods, The God and the Mammon. Both are doing pretty well. The Mammon is real, God is only in the hearts. It depends if you concentrate on urban or rural America.

However, they seem to complement each other: the conservative, religious, small town folks and the radical, f**k the religion urban dwellers.

Quoting Grzegorz: "Yes. Usual sensational bullshits spread by stupid bolsheviks, who think that Vatican do nothing else than think how to make Poland its colony."

They succeeded donkeys years ago, and are concentrating on UK again, after the Vatican's failed attempts to assassinate Queen Elizabeth First, The British Parliament (Guy Fawkes) etc. Read books by Avro Manhattan. I'm no Bolshevik - what "sekta" is that? Time to call on the moherowe berety inquisitors.
