The UK is now a multi-faith, multicultural, largely secular society. If people want religion to be part of their children’s daily practices or inculcation, they have several choices: do it at home; send them to private religious educational institutions; or set up a privately funded facility nearby but off the school campus.

I support this campaign as a parent whose only catchment choice is Church of England. I despair at the thought of sending my child to a school that includes worship, I see it as indoctrination. Christian values are not compatible with British values of tolerance and acceptance. The Church is not only sexist, promotes the idea that good and evil are black and white, that children should live in fear and even be ashamed of who they are. The C of E states clearly for instance that homosexuality is not what god intended, placing them as second-class citizens. I don't want my child to be raised with these outdated views. Recent investigations have shown none of the major religions hold the highest ethical standards. I cannot comprehend why organisations known to have concealed child abuse are allowed to run schools, and taxpayer funded at that. Leave religion out of schools.
