“a better understanding of all faiths,”

That seems a very good reason to explain all the religions to kids in a multi-cultural Britain.

I am all for it!!!

A pity the pre 90's education system still isn't in use. Done me the world of good, and I didn't have to learn how Islam is the only other religion that matters in the world.

That's why you are such a narrow-minded religious hater; what you cannot understand, you seek to destroy. Not different from a barbarian really...

The only thing here that seeks to destroy everything is Islam.

Remember the Buddhist statues in Afghanistan?

Rio, have you read the comments section at the end of the article?

Seems most people have your fun loving, cuddly religion down for what it really is.

I'll let you read the comments there yourself though for a better understanding of how the working class white man sees Islam.

It's funny that attitude you have to constantly dodge the issue and steer a thread in another direction.

This thread is about giving some knowledge of different religions at primary schools in UK, to promote understanding and avoid the nasty bigotry you are suffering. It's about enhancing harmony in a multi-cultural society; something you are dead against, I know...

What has that to do with destroying Buddha statues in Afghanistan?

You seem so concerned that I am wondering if you are not living there.

Us, we are in UK and discuss an UK issue.

The white working class is mostly made up of uneducated morons like you, full of prejudice and proud of their ignorance they display at every occasion, like you do constantly on these threads.
