It should be given as an option. Not all parents will want their children to attend classes on religion, and some parents wish their children could have them. I think the easiest solution would be to make it an elective class.

Not to get on a soapbox here, but children were far better behaved and more respectful when religion was still allowed in schools.

You only have to look at the position in the school league tables of church schools to know that there must be a benefit.

Religious studies should be changed to philosophy’s of the world as it is essential school children understand the motivations of all the differing cultures.

That is an excellent point and one i would agree with. It is essential in this new multi cultural world of ours that we understand each other's ways and points of view. That way more issues may be overcome more easily.

No, religion should not be taught in schools, in the sense that "this is the correct religion, this and that happened and you must believe that, you must wear this and do that and eat stoats on alternate Tuesdays". In other words a set of beliefs should not be taught as fact to children.

Religions, however, existed and continue to exist and should be covered objectively in history and geography.

I went through Catholic schools and also my children.
The religous instruction nowadays takes into account other faiths and teaches them to the children.
I must admit when i left primary school,i thought everyone was a catholic.
I will always fight for church schools to exsist,but can understand why people are against there exsistance.
