Fundamentalist Christian Legal Challenge to Canadian Secular Education Fails

Quebec, Canada
As was reported in the National Post, the Canadian policy of secular education in schools – which requires that children are taught facts about all the major religions of the world – was taken to court by some parents in Drummondville on the basis that the new curriculum “was undermining their efforts to instill Christian faith in their children”.

Unlike South African policy (which also requires education on all major religions to be provided in public schools), the Canadian secular religion education policy applies to their private schools, in addition to their public institutions.

For once this week, at least, a Canadian judge has made a sound decision, finding that learning about multiple religions fostered “equality, respect and tolerance”. Your thoughts on religion education in schools?
