The National Secular Society exists to challenge religious privilege and is Britain's only organisation working exclusively towards a secular society.
The National Secular Society works for the separation of religion and state and equal respect for everyone's human rights so that no one is either advantaged or disadvantaged on account of their beliefs.
Make a stand for freedom, fairness and human rights by adding your voice to the call for a secular democracy.
Three-quarters of a century ago an enduring piece of legislation secured free education for all – but gave churches substantial control over schools in return. Keith Sharpe says this settlement needs updating.
Unacceptable- 26 bishops are able to influence legislation which will directly affect me - for no other reason than they are connected to the established church.
My motivations for joining include faith schools, bishops in the House of Lords, religious intolerance towards women and minorities, any situation where the pious are given more respect or airtime than others, and people holding discriminatory views on religious grounds remaining influential.
It's all very well suggesting Islamic faith schools are potentially damaging children, but the only way to solve this problem is to leave all religion out of education and legislation. I'm not anti-religion, but I am against giving any religion a free ride.
I feel secularism is a cause for which I can be politically and publicly active. Ultimately it's about removing the archaic rights given to religions to infringe my liberty.

The treatment of religious minorities, atheists and apostates in theocratic countries is sickening. Everyone should have the right to their own beliefs and religious choices, provided that they do not impinge on other people's rights.
