Ruairi Quinn wants less religion taught in school. He wants children taught about all the major religions. The Catholic Church, say the bishops, is happy to teach about those religions but quite understandably wants to continue to affirm the Catholic identity of young Catholics.

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin weighed in, saying faith was important for young people but also warned that Catholic schools can't be "watery" about faith.
