    My grandson’s school was instructed by his atheist parents to exclude him from religious instruction. Instead he was to do maths homework in the same classroom where he could hear the religious instruction. With his parents’ advise to take no notice of it, yet becomi g aware of it, he came to a midway conclusion that both held some truth, that there was some sort of force for good. I remeber him saying to me, ‘May the Force be with you.’

      Trying to prevent a child from participating in something seems to actually be a great way to make that child more receptive about what they are being excluded in.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the general population become more like your grandson in coming generations, after the backlash against religion makes way for a more balanced approach to spirituality.
