The Vatican and Muslim religious education

The Vatican 'graciously' granted the right to be imparted one hour muslim religious education to muslim children in italian school; see a report here

The problem, however, is different. It is not about accepting that muslim people be exposed to the teachings of their religion. Rather, the whole point is to be able to distinguish between different types of islamic religion, and select accordingly the teachers, and the scope of the teaching.

Thanks again to the Vatican for its pluralism and tolerance...
