So my dd yr 1 does RE- religion about once a week, its a public school.
Now im not religious at all and have a strong dislike to christian/catholic religion, however i allowed my dd to do RE at her school for 2 reasons
1. I believe in my kids deciding for themselves what their own beliefs are, just like my parents did for me
2. I didnt know how many other kids would not be attending so i didnt want her feeling left out
But what iv found after almost 2 terms of RE is they only teach ONE religion (not sure if its christian or catholic)
But my understanding when signing the form for it was its not a class to "preach god" but to teach kids about religion.
So why is it only about 1??
Why is it not about a range of religions, giving childrens options in the beliefs.
My dd now is under the belief that theres one god, one way, he created everything bla bla bla
Now when she talks to me about it i just listen, smile and say ok and the few occassions she had a question about something as she obviously realized that something they have sense doesnt make sense with the way life is i simply say um im not to sure sweetie, write it down and ask mrs xyz
Its just annoyed me greatly because they are telling her this is how it is and thats final. What happened to the other religions and how and who will break it to my dd and others when they start realizing theres are jews, muslims, and so on..?
