Re: The "V"
Sounds pretty fascistic to me. Coercive government that violates the very soul of Constitutional America.

Comparative religion in the schools
If they taught the actual reality of the different religions rather than whitewashing parts of them or leaving anything out I'd be for that. As I recall though, a famous book on comparative religions I read years ago did not teach what I later learned to be the essence of Christianity: Jesus' nature as the God-Man who died in the place of sinners to save us from sin's consequences. Islam's principles of jihad and the establishment of the worldwide caliphate by violence if necessary could be spiritualized away very easily too.

I think the problem may be that to do this right would require an author or authors who really know the religions from the inside, and what we get instead is "scholars" who don't get it at all and misrepresent it.

Maybe that would be better than nothing, however.
