I don't have a problem with comparative religion being studied in schools, religion is part of all our lives and our history no matter what we believe.

But it would need to be taught in a factual, objective way like all other subjects, include all religions and not be an excuse to promote any particular religious propaganda.

And it would also include atheism and humanism.

Anything that educates believers outside of their highly defended fortress of personal belief has to be a good thing.

I addressed this basic question 14 years ago. I think I sound like I made more sense then I do now.

Over the years I've watched your irrationality increase in direct proportion to your fundamentalism.
