What our members say

  • 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.

    Tom, Leeds
  • The redacting of exam questions and the scandal of gender separation at British Universities convinced me to join the NSS, standing up for rationalism, and civilised behaviour, unafraid to stick its head above the parapet and expose hypocrites, religious zealots and apologists

    Jonathan
  • I am opposed to faith based schools on principle. The government promotes tribalism, the single greatest threat to our future. Many other threats can be solved if we work together and not against each other.

    Mike, Petersfield
  • "I have come to appreciate that the NSS is often a lone voice of rationality in the wilderness that is dominated by religious dogma, bigotry and political manipulation."

    David, Shropshire
  • As a retired head of a comprehensive school, I am very concerned at the growth of so-called 'faith schools'. I very strongly believe they are dangerous, divisive and a threat to our open society.

    Andrew, London
