Religion in schools for religious countries

19 March 2013, 09:01
The few pockets of Godless non-believers should never be enough to sway first-world governments from their duties to teach religion.

This debate is a no-brainer:  If you don't want to be taught religion in schools, then move to a non-religious country.  Simple!
Perhaps the small groups of atheists can all emigrate to their own piece of defunct 'paradise' and set up a quarrelsome government of their own on some deserted patch of civilization.  That way, they can live in their Godless society and not bother the rest of us.

Science is already taught in mosques, churches and temples around the world.  Science agrees with ancient verses of 'Quranic' and Biblical Scriptures so religions and science already teach their matching doctrines in our temples.

It's really just atheist doctrine that now needs to find a home somewhere, and preferably in a non-believing country of their own.
Who are the atheists anyway to make demands in religious countries?

South Africa, like most countries around the world and like all of the Middle East region, is religious historically and currently.  (Google is your friend).  So religious countries have every right to continue teaching religion in schools.

If atheists have a problem with that then they should move to another country that accepts their faith.
And if they still have a problem with that, well then it's just THEIR problem!
