Bible in schools

Teaching religion in state schools. It needs to stop. I object to it not only because I’m an atheist, but because I believe in equality. Privileging your beliefs over the beliefs of every other group is promoting intolerance.
Insisting that religion in schools is the only way some kids will learn morals is disingenuous. Morality =/= religion. They are different beasts – and morality can and does exist without religion (and vice versa).
State schools are secular spaces for all children, regardless of their background, because they are required by law to be there. Religion needs to be sent back to religious spaces, where people have the choice to leave.
