Religion in schools

Today a relative oif mine (of sorts?) posted a bigotted anti Muslem picture about keeping Islam out of schools. Below was my reply on the matter.

Actually it's this kind of bigoted ignorance that we should not be exposing them to. Knowledge is the key to unlocking understanding. Teach the true meanings of ALL religion and the overwhelming similarities will be so evident for all to see.

Besides what's the actual difference in getting them to do this and forcing christian prayers on them during school assembly? Like bible readings and so on. They are children and should not be forced into such things. By all means teach them in a classroom about what each religion believed and the differences and facets of them so that when they are older they can make a more informed decision.
