British Children ‘Must Be Taught Christianity’
Posted by addisethiopia on November 26, 2012
My note: While the tabloid, ‘Daily Express’ titled this report accurately, the BBC is ratcheting up the propaganda that paints the Christians faith in the usual hateful manner by twisting the truth on the same poll with a very cynical headline, “Teaching of Christianity ‘lacks intellectual development‘” The Corporation is getting ever more disgraceful even after the recent embarrassing blunders and scandals (must read) How low can this, once great broadcaster go?
SCHOOLCHILDREN need to be taught Christianity so they can understand British history and culture, a poll of parents has revealed.
Almost two-thirds believe Christianity is key to our history and over half think it is important to help children understand British culture.
Nearly half say more attention should be given to teaching Christianity in RE lessons – but a third say many teachers do not know enough about it themselves.
The Oxford University poll of nearly 2,000 adults found most wanted children to be taught the history of the religion, major festivals like Easter and Christmas and Christian morality.
