The Equality Act. Enforceable Law April 2007.
Tell your children that they do not have to say the Lords Prayer out loud, pray out loud, sing Hymns out loud, (mealtime) Grace out loud, or participate in any type of RE. And, all our children have a right not to believe or have faith in Religion’s (whatever the parents belief) and should be told this – clearly. If a teacher tells them that ‘they have to’ quote the Equality Act. Other Religious/Religion, Humanist, and Secular children, can now boycott all religious indoctrination put forward by any Schools or The Religious Education Council of England and Wales. Children (parents) have now principally a complete freedom in all these matters, but I don’t think, most of the schools and teachers in the UK have much of an idea of what this really means or the implications of them not ‘fully obeying the law’. No doubt, we will find this out and soon!
The wonderful smell of freedom for my children’s future is very sweet. So many have sacrificed themselves for this, after thousands of years of great divisions, bigotry, hatred, and superstition. Most of us know by now ‘who’ and ‘what’, secular or otherwise, has caused most of our (appalling/cruel) social difficulties.
