RE Posters - They Suck, Too

Some posters are just rubbish. But that's so much better than them being just plain wrong.

On the side of one RE hut - H2 - there's a series of posters telling you of famous people's religions. Sounds good, doesn't it? It might be, were they not fictional.

It begins on a good note: George Harrison was a Hindu and Orlando Bloom is a Buddhist. But then things start to go awry. Being a fan of Terry Pratchett and his Discworld novels, I was bemused when a poster said he was a Pagan. Surely not Pratchett, who mocks religion in his books? Turns out I was right. Pratchett is an atheist, says Wikipedia. Definitely not a pagan.

Is Charles Darwin an agnostic? Why yes he is. Well done, Temple Moor, have a cookie. But again, this success was short-lived. Sarah Michelle Gellar is, if you listen to Temple Moor, atheist. But she's not, says Wikipedia. She's not really agnostic - she just didn't belong to an organized religion, but thinks there is a God.

Yet again, Templar Truths doing what it says on the tin: revealing the truth. Where do these RE teachers get their information?

i think you will find in that sense that the posters are incorrect in that sense although in that sense they could be correct

I think that you will find that they're just bloody useless and have no real hope in life, so they make everybody elses bloody miserable.
