Don't be afraid of knowledge

According to the decree of the President of Ukraine, from September 1, a new subject - Christian ethics or ethics of religion (there is no final name yet) - should appear in all schools of Ukraine. The statements about its creation, which were heard prior to the adoption of this order, were far from ambiguous. Many people are still opposed to teaching "such a delicate discipline" at school: some treat it with indignation, others - more restrained, but still skeptical. And this situation looks strange for several reasons. Sometimes it seems that people who started making changes in their country at the end of last year are now seeking to step back, close their hands to new proposals, without even considering what those proposals are. And so, without looking back, they immediately bring a whole bunch of arguments against a new subject.
