I don't like Islam, but I have to acknowledge the fact they still uphold that Bible moral...

Get Ofsted in there, that will sort them out.
If you want to see fear, look at the staff of a school the morning of an OFSTED inspection.

What he said - there is no place for this sort of nonsense in the school textbooks, get them withdrawn.

well, unfortunately ... the basic nature of religion (ours is the one "true" way) lends to a very closed minded set of rules and dogma ... but there are and have been other religions that have been accepting of even other religions.

Case in point look at Japan where Shinto and Budhism coexist.

I do. I don't support any faith schools (well, okay against my will I do financially but you get my drift) however some are worse than others.

Religion should (IMO) be entirely seperate from academia - apart perhaps from a blurring of the edges where historical references are invoked, but even then, this should be restricted to historical facts alone!
