 Muslim clerics: Teach more Christianity


HINDU and Muslim leaders are urging the Kirk to boost religious teaching in schools in order to counter the "secular society".
David Lacy, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, said senior clerics from other faiths were now telling him to offer a more "strident" view of Christian beliefs, in order to provide young people with more moral teaching.

Lacy said he did not back Sentamu's comments, insisting that greater multiculturalism had led to more people in Scotland dropping their hostilities to one another.

But he said pressure to assert more Christianity in Scotland was now coming from other faiths, following a meeting of religious leaders from all faiths earlier this month.

He said: "This point was being made about the need to counter secular culture. We were being told that we should be calling for religious observance and religious education far more stridently in schools.
