NO RELIGION IN SCHOOLS: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR


Guest : Lisa Joshua Sonn

It is my context that teaching religion at school has also been a way to facilitate
behaviour. A set of rules that keeps children respectful of a higher being, an authority
figure with inexplicable powers, fearful of a God who can see everything you do, though
S/He is invisible and a God who can punish you or reward you according to your actions,
which then ensured compliance and obedience.
The Ten Commandments are simple enough to keep children and adults on the straight
and narrow in the world. The powerful and frightening vision of Moses presented with
those two tablets remain in my mind’s eye, there was a burning bush, Moses had a thick
grey cassock, a long beard and wild hair. Quickly as a child I embraced those
commandments as the real deal!
