What is religious education for?

The Philosophers' Magazine 48:66-72 (2010)

Abstract

What is beyond the pale of a pluralist society is a state-directed frontal attack on the evidence for religious beliefs considered as grounds for religious identity, rather than considered as grounds for scientific argument, for example. Religious commitment is not something which pupils should be expected to defend in terms of generally acceptable reasons for belief.
