Tax payer money spent on religious indoctrination is already an issue up here and this just makes it worse. I support the Canadian Secular Alliance which adopts the viewpoint that there should be one public school system and all other private religious school systems should receive no funding. Here is a link to their mandate which is quite well written, I must say:

No worries, HK, it's Christmas weekend so a lot of your other activities will be closed down. Sabotage away. I'll keep the beer cold for when you get done.

Richard Dawkins has complained about this religiously (see what I did there?), because faith schools are supported by taxpayers in Britain, too.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.
