BS!

Comment by Stephen on Sunday

of course what he is saying is that only the religious can teach children how to be moral. 

Comment by Mrs.B on Sunday

I have also heard that children of clergy people are the wost delinquents too.

Comment by Suzanna on Sunday

Why make Sunday schools an exception? Children should be kept safe whatever, or at least try to. I think some religious people genuinely think they are above the law and suspicion. It has been shown time and again that they shouldn't be.

Archbishop of Canterbury attacks non-Church schools as immoral

In a stunning attack both on the values of non-Christian parents and teachers and on non-church schools, the Archbishop of Canterbury has stated that the education system ‘lacks clear, internal and commonly held values’, and that in ‘schools that are not of a religious character, confidence in any personal sense of ultimate values has diminished’.
Humanists UK, which campaigns for a fully inclusive education system, where children are not defined or divided on the grounds of religion or belief, has described the remarks as a ‘shameful’ and ‘a wrong-headed and divisive attack on our shared values’.

Archbishop of Canterbury admits to forcing the Prime Minister to abandon crackdown on illegal religious schools

The Archbishop of Canterbury has admitted to personally lobbying former Prime Minister David Cameron to drop proposals aimed at tackling illegal, extremist religious schools and safeguarding the children with them.
During a debate on education in the House of Lords, the Archbishop conceded that such settings were ‘abusive, ill-maintained…[and] indoctrinated children in an unhealthy way’, but cited the potential bureaucracy for Sunday schools as reason enough for him to leave things as they are.

Humanists UK, which has led the campaign in recent years for greater action on illegal schools and vigorously supported the Government’s proposals, has stated that the Archbishop’s position demonstrates either an ignorance of or a lack of empathy for the children trapped within such places. It has worked closely with numerous whistleblowers and victims of these schools.

Yeah, they certainly want every detail of private lives.

Why are religious people often overly interested in others people's relationships. 

Also i think it's about time that they sorted out free speech. Good news

Andrew Copson addresses Parliament’s human rights committee about free speech on campus

 In the past five years, at least seven Humanist Students societies have been subjected to banning, censure, or disruption at universities around the UK, said Humanists UK Chief Executive Andrew Copson, addressing the Joint Committee on Human Rights in the UK Parliament on Wednesday afternoon. The session was convened to gather evidence on whether the right to free expression was being curtailed on university campuses, and Humanists UK gave evidence alongside representatives of the religion think tank Theos, the Union of Jewish Students, the Federation of Student Islamic Societies, and two students with an interest in this area.

Teacher wins tribunal case after being unfairly dismissed by faith school in religious discrimination dispute

A teacher has won her tribunal against the religious nursery she was employed at, after it was deemed that her dismissal amounted both to harassment and to direct and indirect discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief and sex. Humanists UK, which campaigns against religious schools discriminating against teachers, has welcomed the tribunal’s decision
