Report Religions on Education committee in Shetland News Posted November 7, 2011 After previous rants about the christian summer camp the organisers are now back in schools telling bible stories to the kids every week! I am giving up on this. They obviously have some strong influence on Shetland education that I can't do anything about. Fair enough I admit I'm a non-believer and probably an anti-religionist but up until recently I have deliberately adopted a neutral position with my kids. I have tried hard not to exert any influence on their beliefs apart from providing as much information and resources as I can for them to build the knowledge to be able to form their own views when they are ready. There doesn't seem to be an answer to the christian religion they get thrown at them in school without creating a huge song and dance. Therefore I think the only way is to change my position and start presenting the counter view at home. At least this way I can balance the stuff they are getting in school. Disappointing, but I don't think I have a choice. Anybody suggest any good resources for young atheist thinking? Or what do other non-religious posters think? Should we shut up and let it wash over us or is it something requiring action?
