Faith schools in the UK!?!

I'm currently watching a documentary entitled "Dispatches: In God's Name".

A frightening statistic is that there are already 45 schools in the UK who choose not to follow the national curriculum and are instead teaching "God's curriculum". This obviously includes facts such as "Evolution is a lie" and "The Earth is between 6 and 10,000 years old".

As a complete Atheist I can't help feeling disgust and horror that this country's educational system may be fast taking the same route as America's. IMO these children are being given an unfair disadvantage in life and having "nonsense" forced down their throats.

It's featuring ludicrous fundamentalist Christians shouting "REPENT! REPENT! MR. BROWN NEEDS TO REPENT" and screaming "BABY MURDERERS" at a pro choice supporter.

What is your opinion on faith schools coming to the UK?

    religious education in schools is enough imo

    any more religious teaching if the parent feels their child requires it should be done at home
