While the fierce debate over religion in public schools receives ample media attention, we rarely consider the implications of religious schools on moral education and liberal democracy. In this groundbreaking work, Walter Feinberg opens up a critical new dialogue to offer a complete discussion of the important role religious schools play in the formation of a democratic citizenry. Feinberg, a leading philosopher of education, approaches the subject of religious education with a rare evenhandedness, drawing on examples from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim schools and exploring topics as disparate as sex education and creationism. For Goodness Sake provides a much-needed take on a controversial topic, demonstrating that the relationship between religion and schooling is not simply the exclusive concern of members of a given religious community, but a relevant and vital issue for everyone who cares about education.

Sometimes i wonder who is truly sane, the giver or the recipiant of pain, for what is the true gain, of the feeling of pain, so many forms, like an ever changing monster, sneaks in rooms and dorms, to prey on people like no other, oh why does this pain run real deep? My reasons are to deep, your a quiet room filled with sand, dry and lifeless as i stand, so why? Why fight against it? Tell you i will, so come, sit! A fight is merely to show, that you wont surrender your sword or bow, when pain charges at you, you notch your bow with an arrow of yew, for soon the pain can be killed, it neither takes power or skill, for hopelessness is a dark passage, which can be lit up like a kind message, but why let pain get the last laugh? Strike it out with your quarter staff! Tell it to go hide away, tell it to rue the day, that it decided to attack you, with your mighty strength anew! If you find yourself against the wall, grab some friends and have a ball! For pain is nothing but a fear, of loss and hopelessness you cannot steer, but why be afraid when you have a light? Wave it around and shine it bright! If the candle of hope ever flickers, relight it with laughs and snickers! Pain is a foe that must be fought! Make it a fight that isnt fought for not! Strength in numbers can be painkillers, or perhaps you need relief like water filters, pain is an endless cycle so take it from me, can you help yourself and break free?
