Published October 18th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

The Swedish government is to crack down on the role religion plays in independent faith schools. The new rules will include a ban on biology teachers teaching creationism or ‘intelligent design’ alongside evolution.

“Pupils must be protected from all forms of fundamentalism,” said Education Minister Jan Björklund to Dagens Nyheter.

Some Christian schools teach biology students that the world and the organisms on it were created by a supreme being. This is often presented as another valid scientific theory alongside evolution – something most scientists reject.

Religious Education will remain on the curriculum and it will still be allowed to start the school day with prayers. But in classes teachers will be expected to stick to the curriculum.

    Yeah. I did it on a beach once. You’ve got to really…
    If you do, make it during the day and do it on damp sand by the sea – From Here to Eterniy style (starring Deborah Kerr who just died).
    If you do it on dry sand, I doubt you’ll finish (too much chaffing) and if you do it on damp sand at night it gets all clammy and really isn’t that romantic.
    If you get arrested for public indecency for shagging in broad daylight at the waters edge, sue Hollywood. Not me.
    I never found the right beach!
