I would prefer a system where religion of any kind
is forbidden from schools, or at the very least, as in England, where all religions are treated equally (in theory even if not in practise).
But I think it's outrageous that german schools are allowed to ram christiannity down the throats of the students, whilst outlawing the influence of foreign religions.
Can some germans please actually confirm that this is the case (as suggested by the article), or enlighten me to the real facts.
If this is true, does anyone else agree with me that this ruling stinks?
