Fr. Dresser on religious education

Here is a letter from one Peter Dresser, presumably Fr. Dresser, of Coonamble, published under the title “Religion the problem” in today's Sydney Morning Herald:

A pox on teaching any religion in schools, Caleb Owens ("School opponents need a lesson in tolerance", Letters, April 23). At a time when Christianity is in disarray doctrinally and disdains or ignores much scientific, medical and historical data, maybe any contemporary religious studies, Christian or otherwise, should be undertaken only with extreme caution by suitably qualified, mature persons preferably under the guidance of a good agnostic psychiatrist.

He's unlikely to have any idea of what true science teaches - not macro-evolution, for starters.
