Religion is to education...

Seeing an Arab brushing his teeth with a piece of wood, I remember that this is one of the many coranical orders related to hygiene.
A thought crosses my mind, unexpected and surprising, as if told softly in my ear: "Religion is to education what dictatorship is to democracy"

I guess that what brought the thought to mind is a recent discussion about how religion used to bring much more than a relationship to god, such as a context for the development of art, birth and deathless accounting, health,politics and, of course, education. The sentence sounds well but I am not sure I agree with it: finding as much education in religion, as democracy in a dictatorship requires some fine tuning of the definitions.
