This week our question comes from Paul K.
Paul asks, “Your children must attend mandatory classes…the school within its own legal right, offers only Christian or Islamic studies. The idea being if you are with God you will act ethically. As a parent, how does one handle another authority figure, not only instilling religion in the young impressionable minds of your children, but also conflicting with your parenting encouraging learning through reason and science?”
The winner will receive a copy of A Brief Candle in the Dark by Richard Dawkins.
