The voluntary classes will be introduced throughout this predominantly Orthodox nation of 48 million starting September1, said Patriarch Filaret, who heads the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Kiev Patriarchate.
President Viktor Yushchenko, who is Orthodox, gave his backing to the project at a private meeting with religious leaders June 15, but his office said the curriculum must "satisfy all Ukrainians."
Filaret said leaders from all Christian churches in the former Soviet republic will work together to help develop a curriculum that will include lessons about morality and creationism. Filaret said Darwin's theory of evolution should still be taught, Chicago Tribune reported.
