The Need to Teach Religion

A while back on this blog I recommended that the public schools include religion as a subject in the standard curriculum. I've learned since that outspoken atheist philosopher Daniel Dennett makes the same recommendation. I feel vindicated, finding myself in such eminent company. His gist, and mine, is that religion is most dangerous when people don't understand it.

  1. I couldn't agree more. What is prohibited is appealing. Children need to learn the facts about religion in an objective and non-biased way.
