    Well I think Anglicanism should be taught in schools. Indeed I think Anglican schools should be the only ones to exist in Britain. As in the role of state education should move from the secular government, to the Anglican Church of England. Given that the bible is the cultural basis for law and language in Britain. Without its teaching you will never be able to understand the nation you are born into and why it exists. Also the Church will prepare students for death, rather than life. If you see death as the purpose of life, rather than life itself you will be a superior person.

    Yes it will mean people will be Anglicans and the Church will have its power and place within peoples lives restored. Which is in the end why I want it.

    I would agree with the concept of religion being taught in schools because it enhances students minds and allows them to acknowledge about other religions not just their own. They will gather a deeper understanding of other religions. In my perspective I think this will give them the opportunity of knowing how other religions work and about their beliefs. An advantage to this is the stereotypical people who base their outcomes through news stories on what they have heard. If students come to know more about this, this would also make them believe in their religion more and keep them focused, which could also lead onto good behaviour. etc lol hope this helps you

    No you mean confuse minds so they never believe in Anglicanism. What does Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and so on have to do with Britain? Once you remove the preeminence of the state religion with education it will soon die. This is helped by teaching other religions to further confuse people.

    Religion is an important part of many people's lives and society so it should be taught, but from an objective perspective. Not in a way that espouses the truth of any one of them over an another.
