At most, only one religion is the correct one.


Why?

Is God so demure as to only have one way of communicating with man?


[sigh]

I think the question comes down to the purpose of religious education.

If you are educating to encourage belief - then you should only do that in any "true" religion. Which is why that would belong only in the the religious communities themselves.

If you are educating to encourage understanding and tolerance, then it is irrelevant whether there is any truth in the belief or not - what you are teaching is a basic understanding of why people with certain beliefs behave in a certain way - eg. Why Sikhs wear a turban, why some people don't eat certain foods, etc...

I agree with JP - its seems that the right to hold any view you like on religion (though not to act on them.....) is fair - that the state should be associated with any one in particular appears wrong

My understanding that in the more religious USA, there is a legal separation of state and church and that some of the nuttier right wingers want to bring in a theocracy to replace what they see as a secular state. They are nuts, but there you are!
