  •  I’m an atheist, but I agree with you (0+ / 0-)

    Religions should be taught in schools if only because kids need a context to understand literature and history. Lots of great literature has a religious context (Much of Shakespeare, or Gulliver's Travels, or 1001 Arabian Nights, or The Divine Comedy). And without understanding the role of religion, you can’t cover things like Charlemagne or the Crusades or the conflict between Elizabeth vs. Mary Queen of Scots.
