Here’s a horrifying account of the religious beliefs of children in inner-London schools, which looks to me like an object lesson in how being brought up religious can damage a child’s ability to think.

I find this horrifying, because I honestly don’t know what can be done. I don’t believe that anything is lasting can be achieved by hard-line action, but short of making it illegal to pass on one’s religious beliefs to children, I’m not sure what can be done.
