Encouraging religion to "beget" off!
Reposted from my comment at Keep Religion Out Of School (NZ):
What would you think if once a week each New Zealand hospital was declared “closed” for half-an-hour while a group of preachers came in and lectured to the patients?
The doctors and nurses had to stand around not working for that time.
Any patient who did not like it was expected to leave their ward and sit it out in the waiting area. Opting-out patients were not allowed to receive medication or any other treatment during that time because the hospital was “closed”. If they complained, they would be told they should have gone to a private hospital instead.
That is exactly the same as what is happening in our schools today.
