What a good idea!

According to the Guardian, the Swedish government plans to introduce a ban on schools teaching religious doctrines as if they were true.

Of course, religious education will still be allowed, as long as the beliefs are not presented as facts. Prayer will also be allowed as it has no truth value.

But it does mean the banning of creationism from biology classes. The Koran will not not be allowed to be taught as if it was true in Muslim schools, the Bible in Christian schools and so on.

What a great idea! In fact, I am surprised that it’s actually been allowed until now.

In Britain it’s apparently perfectly fine to do so.

Does that mean that I can set up a school and teach young, impressionable kids about the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
