The Quebec humanist assossiation was trying to get this course removed because it do not say a word about agnostism and insist on the supposition that all religions are peaceful. The course also try to link ethics to religion...

If that's true, I claim their objection is misguided.

Strategically, raising awareness of and knowledge about other faiths is a step in the right direction. We needn't demolish all fallacies at once; it may be a lot easier to be heard when refuting "religion is peaceful" and "religion is the wellspring of ethics" once knowledge of other faiths has done its work exposing the contingent nature of faith.
