As an #atheist, this stuff gives me a chill 😨 : An orthodox Jewish school in London redacts content on evolution, womens' dresses and homosexuality ➡️ https://www.theguardian.com/education/2018/mar/09/yesodey-hatorah-jewish-girls-school-north-london-homosexual-references-textbook
In my hometown, the catholic church runs 21 schools. Teach religion at school? A right, granted by the Grundgesetz.
But run schools? No.
@DPoeltl Which btw is affected by the closing of 8 catholic schools because of financial problems of the Archdiocese Hamburg.
@erAck Believers keep saying: "But besides churches, we run hospitals and kindergartens and elderly homes, too!" Yeah. On money from taxes! The idea, that a secular state collects church tax is - again - 🥜 ! A muslim friend of mine learned at a Catholic elderly home. At the end of his tuition, he was asked to convert - or be sacked 😤 . Ax the tax, convert all church run inst. into state-run inst. (2/2)
