But Christ is also God is he not? ("I and my Father are one") Therefore these schools must also be promoting the values of Yahweh, the OT God, who is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal and capriciously malevolent bully.Not a great role model for kids I'd say. Nothing wrong with the other values you mention such as charity, global citizenship etc - but you don't need any supernatural beliefs to endorse those. Millions of people worldwide are good without God. Phasing out denominational schools would merely put Catholic parents in the same boat as those of all other religions, minority Christian denominations and those with no religious beliefs who already don't have "a choice". That's why a fully non-denominational state sector would be the fairest system for everyone.
