#1 Generalized anti-religious bigotry like this is disugusting, no matter the accurate portrayal of the dangers of madrassas.

Pointing out the dysfunction of radical Islam is certainly a topic worth exploring, but using it to conflate all religion with evil is intellectual cowardice and incompetence.

Toss this guy in with other evil idiots like Richard Dawkins, where he belongs.

#3 agree no mo uro. I could write a similar piece about academia churning out zombies who laugh and applaud on cue as our democracy burns and turns into just another corrupt, socialist 8*&^hole? What's the difference?

#4 Somewhat along the same line, My wife wen to catholic School, I just found out she has no idea of anything about Greek Mythology, hasn't a cluewho Aries, Zeus, Mercury etc were.

Odd, as if the Catholics wanted to be sure there was absolutely no mention of "Other Gods" (Than theirs)

#5 Redneck Jim,
Kids in US high schools don't recognize Europe on a map. Why would you expect them to know about Aries?

This is the standard Pak response. If something is wrong in Pak, it is equally wrong somewhere else.
So the RSS in India is equal to the LeT. Madrassa indoctrination is equal to Catholic education.

#10 I went to public school and a Protestant church. In both instances, I feel I was educated and encouraged to read all kinds of literature, including the Iliad and the Odyssey and the Bible, for myself. Indoctrination of any kind is dangerous. God gave us brains and can take any and all questions but what we do with the answers is individual, knowing we eventually will have personal accountability. I do agree that radical Islam is greatest danger the world has ever faced, as even Hitler didn't target all of civilization with a mass suicidal hatred willing to take everyone else down with them. This can hardly be equated with other religions.
