I have just been talking to our one of teachers, and she told me about another Catholic teacher who was helping out at another of our city's schools. she mentioned "God" to a little girl who stuck her fingers in her ears and said, "You can't say that word to me, I don't believe in Him". Apparently when they sang songs which mentioned God for some reason half the children refused to even mouth the word.
The City of Brighton and Hove is a pretty atheistic place, the "Gay Community" don't want God in their bedrooms, the two universities seem to take an agnostic and often Marxist stance on most things. I just wonder where these children get this from.
