Go to: UPDATED: Why I want all our children to read the King James Bible

When my daughter left her secondary school for sixth form, I made a gift of 'Letter to a Christian Nation' to the school library. I wish I could afford to donate a copy to every school in the country.

Go to: Am I over-reacting?

onlyrational's Avatar Jump to comment 28 by onlyrational

No you are not over reacting. We need this kind of indoctrination to be kicked out of our schools. My son was preached at for a day by a group called 'Damaris'. The head was surprised when I complained (we were not notified beforehand) but took my point and offered to try to find a humanist to come in to school - he failed. People from outside the UK are often shocked to find out how much religion (Christianity) we routinely administer to our children here.

In the uk we call schools based on woo science Waldorf schools.

And anthroposophical medical centres are partially NHS funded.

Anthroposophists believe human disease is essential for spiritual development and should be allowed to run its course. Honest.

Go to: What leads some to never accept religion at all?

onlyrational's Avatar Jump to comment 61 by onlyrational

I had the (good) fortune to be brought up in a household where two bizarre faiths cancelled each other out. A grandmother who was a member of the Plymouth Brethren lived with us when I was a child and this prevented my (at that time) Mormon mother bringing us up in the Church of the Latter Day Saints.

What a lucky escape.

We should be thankful these sects are so intolerant of one another, or there could be even more ignorance and misery spread around the world.
