ESS Letter: No right to impose religious beliefs on state school children


In his Scotsman letter Brian McGuire is wrong to feel that Edinburgh Secular Society is “mocking the beliefs of Christians worldwide. ” It would be vindictive and gratuitous to attack the substance of what is for many, deeply felt private faith.

However, those religious believers who feel that theirs should be the default position for all society will continue to be surprised and hurt when told that their freedom to believe does not extend to the freedom to impose their beliefs on state school children.
