How do you respond to a student who says “I have my beliefs, why should I look any further?”
Dr. Tracy Pintchman discusses the issue of students thinking their personal belief is all they need. She explains that religions are a fact in the world and are a part of understanding how the world works. Dr. Pintchman suggests that our idea of separation of Church and State is part of this attitude. Dr. Pintchman concludes that not wanting to know about any other religion but the one you believe in, is choosing to be ignorant.
