Church attendance update 2


Since my last church attendance posting on 5th June, we have attended exactly zero times. You may think this shows a distinct lack of commitment, but you'd be wrong.

It turns out that we had attended church the week after all the other charlatan parents had been informed of their child's inclusion or non-inclusion at Emmanuelle St. Andrews primary school. This effectively meant no one needed to go any more so we'd been pitched in right at the deep end.

Local intelligence suggests we go back in late September when a new influx of agnostics and unprincipled atheists will be packing out the pews in search of the holy grail - sorry I mean rightful place at their nearest local school. Christ the education system needs a rethink.

Its an interesting one this church attendance and school place thing.
'Their nearest school' argument is fine for those who can afford to pay the inflated prices such a catchment area can command.
I think the church attendance criteria works quite well as
parents with a genuine desire for their children to have that style of education can, through choice rather than being able to afford it.

Except that when the proddies go to one school and the left footers go to the other all hell breaks loose!

Faith is for the home not the school, unless it's not state funded in any way, in which case they can indoctrinate their little ones in any way they see fit...until it turns to jehad in which case we ditch the royal family an the whole CofE thing and secularise everything in advance of it being laid on us post revolution.

Aside from that, you do the best for your boys Six, even if it involves getting on your knees!

I half agree with you Gavin.
But in this instance, as Six demonstrates, its not the religion perse that makes it a popular school, more the work ethic.

Gavin,

Kids are indoctrinated in many forms - many more worrying forms.
