One can’t but help notice at this time of the year young school children dressing up as middle Eastern shepherds of a couple of thousand years ago and also as strange beings with wings! A virgin who has had a baby….What! As if this wasn’t enough three kings who ride camels and ‘follow’ a star, yeh right!
This nonsense is actually taught by our teachers in our State schools and then just a few short years later they are expected to study science and mathematics, arrive at facts which are verifyable by experiement, learn the origins of the Universe and Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Personally I would abolish all faith schools but we should certainly ban teaching of any religious fables in our State education system. There must be a clear separation between Religion and the State including the role of the monarch as head of the Church of England before we can have true freedom.
I can’t for the life of me recall at the moment who’s quote this is but:-
“There can be no freedom until the last King is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”
Now that might be going a bit far but I get the sentiment behind it.
