Comment 31 by thebaldgit :

Only confirming that the bible has been a comfort to the right wing religious extremists who see its texts as vindication for all sorts of evil

Ah, Christianity. Purveyors of guilt and fear by divine appointment for 2,000 years. Big savings on souls. For more details visit your local branch or, for full (gory) details, get our brochure from any "good book" shop. NB. Religions with similar specifications also available.

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

The next move should be for Richard to ban copies of "The God Delusion" from all schools. The kids will be falling over themselves to get hold of it. Maybe they will even be hiding it inside their copies of "Busty Babes" Well the boys at least.

Go to: Am I over-reacting?

No, I don't think you are over reacting. Religious folk are often so steeped in their religiosity that they think their world view is the norm. I'm almost willing to believe that the school involved didn't think the religous aspect of the camp was worth mentioning. That is precisely why you should raise your concerns. I had a similar dilema myself when I was in hospital and came round from the anaesthetic to find a bible on my bedside locker.Should I complain or would I be making a fuss about nothing? On balance I decided I ought to challenge the assumption that the default position is Christianity. If I didn't I was effectively endorsing that view.
