← Primary school indoctrination (UK)

In New Zealand we have a huge problem with a loophole in our Education Act that allows religious volunteers free time to take weekly "lessons" in state primary schools. But a surprising battle is building against it, including Atheists, Christians and everyone in between. We're the Secular Education Network, backed by the NZ Association of Rationalists and Humanists ... just picking up momentum over three months. I'm the religious liaison aiming to get Christians, Jews, etc into the support team, with surprising success, especially high profile figures like Lloyd Geering, our homegrown Christian atheist. So Richard Dawkins ... come over and help us. And bring your "atheists for Jesus" t-shirt. Or watch our Facebook page called "Secular Education Network". It's religious tolerance gone mad.
