« Reading, July/August | Main | Human rights and wrongs »


Secularists shouldn't be moaning, they should be rejoicing. Nothing gets otherwise gullible and impressionable children switched off the idea of Jeebus as quickly as forcing them to sit through boring religious ceremonies.

The Department for Education states that all maintained schools in England must provide a daily act of collective worship which must reflect the traditions of this country, which it says are, in the main, broadly Christian.

It's difficult really. I agree completely that this is rubbish (but the problem goes deeper: what is school if not a way for the state to get its claws into children and engineer them into good citizens, for some definition of 'good citizens'), but whenever I hear anybody bleating about 'human rights' my first reaction is 'STFU'.
