Recently in the news :

The Catholic education system (see first post in this thread) refuses to accept the new education standards because they don't leave enough room for 'their own content'.

Well, tough titty. You want to be subsidized ? You adhere to the same standards as state organized schools.

But no, of course not. The standards will be changed to acommodate them.

Unhappily , even the states among the most secular of the world aren't protected from the religious offensive.
We would be protected of these offensives if states had enough courage to say "No !".
But the people of powers in ours states are often people who are under influence of religious lobby(ies) directly or indirectly and let these entities influence them for religious reasons or / and electoral ones or / and others reasons like political correctness.
