Compulsory Worship

Churches push for school worship

I really don't like the idea of compulsory worship in schools.

People should certainly be free to believe whatever they choose to believe and this doesn't fit with that. Yes, it's certainly a good thing for children to come into contact with religions (and good for it to be a range of religions - they need to be aware of the diverse range in modern culture).

However, they shouldn't be made to take part in any unless they specifically choose to do so.

Religion is an important part of modern life for many people, but it certainly should be kept separate from government and education.
