Religious Education

I have had to sign so many school-related forms about religious education, that I am staring to wonder what all the fuss is about.

There are detailed notes on what the classes will cover. Promises of full disclosure and booklets available.

I have no problem with my kids learning anything from any culture. They can even throw in a bit of creationism if they like. Why not, better to have all the information and let them decide for themselves. At least one of my kids chooses to believe in God, but he only knows about the one I told him about. No harm in having another one.

What do people find so offensive about religious education? Is it a fear that children will be brain washed, or that they will realise that their parents path is not the true path.

I find it confusing. But this isn’t an unusual state for me to be in.
