  • The National Secular Society campaigns for a secular democracy, where:
  • There is no established state religion.
  • Everyone is equal before the law, regardless of religion, belief or non-belief.
  • The judicial process is not hindered or replaced by religious codes or processes.
  • Freedom of expression is not restricted by religious considerations.
  • Religion plays no role in state-funded education, whether through religious affiliation of schools, curriculum setting, organised worship, religious instruction, pupil selection or employment practices.
  • The state does not express religious beliefs or preferences and does not intervene in the setting of religious doctrine.
  • The state does not engage in, fund or promote religious activities or practices.
  • There is freedom of belief, non-belief and to renounce or change religion.
  • Public and publicly-funded service provision does not discriminate on grounds of religion, belief or non-belief.
  • Individuals and groups are neither accorded privilege nor disadvantaged because of their religion, belief or non-belief.
  • Help make this a reality. Join us.
