They don't teach my kids that because my kids go to non-secular schools.
Be that as it may, both my own experience, and during my more recent
visits to campus, I find the kids being required to participate in
Halloween rituals like dressing up as witches and participating in greed
based rituals like exchanging candy, which the courts, when applied to
children being required to participate in a similar manner to a Christian
activity such as Easter, have already defined as teaching them to
practice religion. Since Halloween rituals are based on Satan worship,
then, by the case law, this comes out to teaching my kids to worship
demons. Secular Christmas celebrations work out the same way.
You are quite free to differ, but then, differing opinions is what the
worlds about, eh? I told you this was quite parochial of me.
