I really don't believe scholastic education has anything to do with knowing right from wrong. I believe it's environmental , parental influenced and religion. To blame lack of education is a cop out.

Personally I hold the parents responsible for the actions of their children. If parents would just teach their children from the get go they are to respect themselves and all human beings no matter , race, religion and color and that harming others will only bring shame on themselves along with their parents and also on the faith they practice.

Fathers need to teach their sons that females, no matter how they live their lives, how they dress and how they carry themselves, that they are to be respected and not controlled. Each one of us are responsible for our OWN actions, and if a women dress's scantly or sleeps around what business is that of anyone else's . It is her life not ours and what ever we reap we will sow. I am not saying I endorse premarital sex because I darn straight don't , but what another person does or doesn't do ( as long as they don't take another person's life) is not our duty to comdem them , stone them or kill them. God gave each one of us a mind, heart and soul and for others to try and control another human is totally wrong. GOD wil deal with each one of us with the sins we have committed, and thank GOD we will not pay for other human beings sins. We don't live in a perfect world I know and no one is perfect but by golly we need to learn to get along and even if we don't agree with the faith one practices (as long as their faith does not teach hate and killing ) we should at least be civil to one another.

I am a Christian and my faith teaches me to spread the good news that JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR ALL MANKIND AND THAT WITHOUT HIM AS YOUR SAVIOR , A PERSON WILL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN , then we are to pray for those that deny HIM and never force that person or persons to convert or else kill them. I have read the quran and must say I disagree with forcing islam on anyone.

Heaven holds people of many faiths , Lutheran, Baptists, Catholics, Jews ( but only if they believe that JESUS is LORD ) .and to say only muslims will see paradise is pure hog wash. islam denys what the LORD has commanded of each and every one of us and if you really search your heart and soul you will see that islam goes totally against what GOD wants and says . JESUS WAS THE ONLY PERFECT PURE MAN THAT EVER WALKED THE FACE OF THIS EARTH , HE NEVER SLEPT WITH A WOMAN , HE DID NOT KILL, HE WORSHIPED AND OBEYED HIS HEAVENLY FATHER , HE WAS IN TOTAL SUBMISSION TO GOD and for a muslim to say that mohammed was of GOD is all wrong , mohammed was far from perfect., he was a sinner just like you and I . I would rather follow a man that was perfect in all ways then to follow a sinner like we all are.

Parents are a bad influence on their children when they teach them that thier religious beliefs are the ONLY way . RELIGION SHOULD COME FROM ONE'S OWN HEART AFTER SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH , and not from environment or from people pounding it into their heads that their way is the right way and damn the other religions
