School move should not be lamented

Why are all these people up in arms about Education Minister Ruairi Quinn's moves to remove religious instruction from schools? Surely whatever happens is the will of their God.

One correspondent (Letters, April 5) lamented the fact that such a move would "lead our children into the abyss of secularism". I'd much prefer the abyss of secularism than the lying and covering up of Catholicism.
