Having a knowledge of world religions can be very enlightening, and so a World Religions course should be available. However, if state schools can teach religion, it also means that they will be the ones interpreting it for the students, and that would be simply disastrous. The government should stay way the hell away from religion.

Oh well, schools interpret everything for the kids. Literature, philosophy (call it whatever you want), society, pick any human-related topic. Why not religion, it's not much worse.

What I really think would be important to teach all of the mainstream religions (to show how similar they are really) and pick a handful of small religions (to show that people come up with new ones every other day).

It is just a different kind of fictional literature.
