Any guesses at how long before they're stolen, thrown in the garbage or vandalized? And how many will claim to be "forced to buy an atheist book" after being asked to pay for books they destroyed?

I read that Education Secretary Michael Gove sent a copy of the King James Bible to every school in England (two years ago), foolishly labelling it "the most important book in the English language".

A more sensible comment was: "It seemed to me [Ian Horsewell?] that the very students who needed to read Alom's book would find it hard to buy for themselves, so instead I wondered if we could place a copy in every secondary school library."

Religion = superstition
