And this is why all schools should be non-religious

The BBC has the article on its web site – see link above

The fact that in this day and age the state encourages citizens to educate children in the religious atmosphere of the parents choosing is utterly bizarre to me. Religion is a personal thing not something to be passed down from one generation to the next.

That we end up with children being indoctrinated is bad enough but in a free society surely we don’t want up and coming generations to have closed minds do we? Surely it is wrong to try to force young minds to follow the same religious beliefs of parents/families.
