Many religions have been accused of instilling unquestioning attitudes among the faithful. Atheists have done this too (think Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot). Humanists oppose traditional approaches to moral education, preferring a liberal approach to emphasizing individual moral responsibility. ‘Humanism and moral and religious education’ outlines what a humanist system of education would be like. Humanists do not want to abandon children to invent their own morality, as may be the criticism from traditional religious educationalists. Rather, they believe we should encourage children to think and to question existing moral standards. They encourage a philosophical approach to education.
