Hugh Reilly (Perspective, 1 October) insists that those who believe “our cosmos is all down to a celestial being” should be banned from school premises.
So that’s all Christians, Muslims and most people in Scotland? Does he really think that only those who believe that the universe self-created out of nothing should be allowed into schools?
Perhaps it is time for militant atheists to leave the traditional Scottish Christian education system and set up their own atheist schools? As a Christian I am quite happy to tolerate such irrational schools, unlike the new fundamentalist atheists who seem panicked every time anyone dares express disagreement. Are the atheists so unsure of their own case that they have to have a witch-hunt against those who don’t buy into their mocking and arrogant meta-narrative?
