    Is it true the Bible says God doesn't intend to prove himself?

    If you were in heaven with all those chix and the "virgin" Mary, would you be leaving?

    Didn't think so.

    Do what the majority of British people want;

    Taxpayers' cash should not be used to fund faith schools, say voters
    Labour wants talks on teaching of religion as poll shows 58% of the public urge abolition or axing of state funds

    Labour is calling for cross-party talks on how religious education is conducted and monitored in the state sector as a special poll for the Observer shows widespread concerns about the use of taxpayers' money to fund faith schools in a multicultural Britain.

    The survey by Opinium shows that 58% of voters now believe faith schools, which can give priority to applications from pupils of their faith and are free to teach only about their own religion, should not be funded by the state or should be abolished.

    Of those with concerns, 70% said the taxpayer should not be funding the promotion of religion in schools, 60% said such schools promoted division and segregation, and 41% said they were contrary to the promotion of a multicultural society. Fewer than one in three (30%) said they had no objections to faith schools being funded by the state.

    Labour supports the continuation of state-funded faith schools and shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt said he saw them as "an important part of the educational landscape". But he said the recent controversy in Birmingham, where six non-faith schools have been put into special measures and a further five criticised following allegations of a plot by hardline Muslims to infiltrate them, had raised important questions about the relationship between education and religion in a multicultural society....

    If you think that you are good at mental arithmetic then here is video of someone 'calculating' Pi to 22,500 decimal places in their head - and then reciting it flawlessly to a bunch of people who are crosschecking the numbers from computer printouts. The whole exercise took 5 hours, so fortunately we just see the beginning and end. He also learned Icelandic in a week, then went live on Icelandic TV just to show off.

    Not exactly a religious video I know, but it still kinda fits;

    If the states withdrew funding to religious based schools in this country, the education dept would have to either buy all the schools anyway and run them as govt schools, or build a massive amount of infrastructure to cope with the fact that the religious schools couldn't afford to operate and all the kids currently in them would need schools.

    In short, probably won't happen whether it should or shouldn't because it'd be a massive logistical nightmare.

    How many pupils go to government funded faith based schools that it would be such a big deal?

    In Australia there's **** loads if we're including Catholic schools. There'd be one Catholic school for every two state schools in some areas I reckon. And in the bigger cities there's a lot of Anglican and other protestant schools as well.

    As an example, in my city (regional) there would be approx 10 Catholic Primary Schools, and there are (maybe) 5 state high schools but also 5 faith based high schools.
