Reader’s Comment of the Day: Charles Clarke is wrong – Christianity should be taught in school


In response to Mark Ellse: Former Education Secretary moves to abolish Christian teaching, NBeale wrote:

Militant atheists are mercifully in a relatively small minority in the UK – though not in the Labour Party.

But the UK is constitutionally a tolerant Christian country. Polls show strong support both for the proposition that it is, and ought to be, a Christian country. Therefore Christianity should be taught in all schools – not that all pupils should be made to believe in Christian doctrine, but they should be aware of it.
