Global religious education is the hope of the world. Only through religion and education therein can people hope to attain in this life (not to mention the next) freedom, happiness, and peace. This thesis will not be accepted by most political or social thinkers, and in particular not by liberal ones; it commits, or at least is alleged to, the sins of uniting religion to politics and of denying people the right not to be religious. Actually, it commits neither sin. But, be that as it may, the opposition to it by liberals is self-serving, and their alternative form of government commits worse ‘sins.’ I will explain these two points in the fi rst two sections that follow. I will then in the fi nal two sections argue for my thesis about religious education.
