The Church of England's own polling has confirmed again this week how irreligious British society has become: but that doesn't mean we can take secularism for granted. Schools are increasingly open to control by religious groups, and entrenched religious privileges remain – opening the state up to demands for special favours from all faiths. Lend us your support as we campaign for a secular UK, an inclusive education system free from discrimination, and for freedom of speech, satire and ridicule.
