Imagine there's no Imagine

Pratyush Khaitan points me, via email, to a BBC story titled "Church school bans Lennon classic," about a school in Devon that has "withdrawn John Lennon's Imagine from an end-of-term show after teachers ruled that its lyrics were anti-religious." You know, the "Imagine there's no heaven" and "no religion too" bits.

They can't bar their students from imagining stuff, of course. "Imagine there's no school" and suchlike, I'm sure they scribble in their notebooks. "And no teachers too."
