← Faith School Menace? (Now visible in US)

The professor's dislike of faith schools seems a little hypocritical. After all in his book Climbing Mt Improbable he mentions that he once asked his young daughter (I think she was his daughter) as to why flowers existed. She replied (quite correctly) "to make the world pretty". (Out of the mouths of babes and infants, eh). However, the good Doctor felt the need to inform her that this belief of hers was false. If Richard has the right to mislead his daughter into rejecting what is so obviously true why shouln't muslims have a similar right to mislead their offspring. And why shouldn't Xns have the right to have their children educated in a school that teaches the truth: Christianity?
