      In places outside cities especially in the South and midwest everyone knows what church you attend and how regularly you attend, and if you do fellowship (handing out with otherlike minded religious folk).  Look at Hobby Lobby  - John's Pizza, tons of companies that push a religious agenda on their employees because the Supreme Court of Morons has basically trhrown their hands up and refuse to get involved.  

      And when they interview you it goes like this:them-  "what church do you attend?"   you- "It's not legal to ask that question" them- "well you can answer and move on to the next phase of the interview or not answer in which case the interview is over".  They learned this tactic from foreign companies - like the Swiss - who asked none of your busienss questions and if you wouldn't answer they terminated the interview.  Which puts you in the position of being forced to lie to get a job.  How Christian.

      UGH, TEXAS. Please secede!

      but what of the social side? As in social skills that are being taught to these impressionable young minds.

      My guess is they are not being taught much in the way of tolerance and understanding and how to work with people.

      I can imagine that by the time they reach adulthood they will be incapable of working and operating with people. They will have to be re-educated so to speak if they hope to be employable.
