Points to Hibernia’s
Notes that their teaching is
Gives them the notice to
Cease and desist.
I just love a good, well-deserved, metaphorical arse-kicking. After the jump:
From Atheist Ireland:
Hibernia College Dublin, in its Higher Diploma in Arts in Primary Education, is teaching as part of its Religion module several untrue statements about atheism and at least two defamatory allegations about modern atheists. This includes course notes that claim that “What bothers very few of its latter-day exponents is the fact that atheist humanism produced the worst horrors history has ever witnessed, namely Nazism, Fascism and Marxism…” and a mock examination where the student is expected to answer that it is “True” that “Atheist humanism produced the worst horrors history has ever witnessed.”
Atheist Ireland is requesting that the untrue statements and defamatory allegations be immediately removed from the course notes and examinations, and then that the Religion module be entirely revised so that it teaches students about religion in an objective, critical and pluralistic manner. We have offered to assist in this by providing accurate information about atheism and atheists.
The letter that follows is a thorough, detailed, no-room-to-escape indictment of Hibernia College–what they are doing, what laws they are violating, what remedy is sought. Strictly business, and a thing of beauty.
