Should religon be compulsoirly taught in schools

Firstly Mike sorry if i went beyond your subject  of religon taught in schools. I should have read the begining of the lesson first.

 However i was not forced into these classes nor anybody else to my knowledge, And again i have not met anybody harmed  either.

By being taught in schools it does allow to either except this or ignore it. And to give the children a choice to go to these classes or not would start those little minds thinking. What about maths, english, history and other subjects.

I was made to go to Sunday School in 1932, I along with other youngsters were given a little blue book and when you went to Sunday School during the morning and the afternoon a little black star was printed in it.  If you turned up at home with no star you were given a belting, no pocket money (which was 3d).  If you had a full book of stars you were allowed to go to the bun fight in September.  And then later on in life into the RAF where church parade was compulsory,  I got completely pissed off with church and their collections, beggars in the street were locked up when I was young but I did’nt see any of the clergy locked up, they were always begging and still are.  Church for me is a dirty word.  I have told my wife that I don’t want anyone praying over me when I expire, they only know what they have been told by next of kin but you would think that they knew them personally when you hear them speak.

 On reflection what the heck.  Marching to church on a Sunday morning was great as far as i was concerned. I was not marching around on a parade ground with a rifle on my shoulders.
