Stop compulsory worship in schools

2 Comments 31st October 2014

Schools should be free to hold secular assemblies if they wish to.

Why does this matter?

There are many atheist and agnostic families in this country whose rights are currently ignored.  Children should not be forced to pray to gods that they don’t believe in.  Even many people who do believe in god don’t believe in a ‘personal’ god that requires worship.  Schools should be free to decide on this issue for themselves.

    This is a good idea. We all appreciate that this is an outdated view and that let’s be honest religion should be “opt-in” rather than “opt-out”. No one likes people knocking on doors hawking religion so why would we subject our children to it. The fact is (back in reality land) that God is Santa Claus for grown ups, and one day we have to tell our kids we lied about that too…

    I do not have much contact with schools but I thought that most Christian worship in schools is now in Christian (C of E / RC) funded schools.

    If people do not like Christian schools, they should send their kids to a state school.
