I was going to add this as a stealth edit to my last blog, but that’s not fair, really.
In response to the suggestion that Secular Scotland weren’t in favour of booting religious education out of schools, here is last night’s tweet suggesting just that:
@jedirev there are better things to teach a child than religions leave that for church’s, teachers do great jobs

@jedirev that would be excellent, where better to learn about Jesus than in a church? Or Muhammad in a mosque?

It seems to me that Secular Scotland don’t know what they want. Do they want religion out of Schools, or not? And if not, why are they bothering to raise this at all? They say they want some standardisation across Scotland’s regions, yet the truth is this: the existing legislation provides that already.
Whatever their agenda, they are willing to unfairly attack the work of countless teachers.
