Such complete rubbish and what a terrible shame that we should, as responsible adults, be infecting our children's minds with this utter travestry of the truth.

We criticise Muslim Fundamentalists for their beliefs but then attempt to infect our own children's minds with concepts equally false.

All religious activities and teaching should be removed from the School curriculum - it is a corrosive and destructive. process It is ultimately a complete waste of time much better spent on developing skills in analysis and constructively critical skills.

I wouldn't have a problem with removing all religious teaching from all schools. Except, perhaps, a brief precis of different beliefs as part of history lessons.

But your comment reads like you are seriously comparing ISIS with the Church of England and finding them equally noxious. If so, you really need to get a grip.

I'm not religious in the slightest, but this sounds sacrilegious to me. I don't have a huge problem with teachers taking a swipe at Christianity, just so long as they do the same for Islam at the end of Ramadan. They won't, of course, this is another tiny part of undermining our traditional culture and heritage.

At the risk of sounding all "bah humbug" I'm inclined to agree. It may sound strange to some but as a Christian I'd rather they did a secular Christmas play instead of what sounds like a feeble attempt to "sex up" the traditional Christmas story.

Portraying Joseph as a dimwitted and confused "two timer" is particularly irksome. What is wrong with an honourable, self-sacrificial, committed man who is committed to his wife? In this day and age society could do with a few more Josephs.

I bet none of you 'non-believers' refuse the two or three days holiday you are given every year to celebrate the birth of Christ.
