I started this occasional blog to keep folk posted with the Campaign for Secular education (UK) to get the fundies back out of schools. Peter Vardy and his ilk are snake oil salesmen selling "nice" ideas to the masses but the real reason they want to be in education is to promote their own brand of Christianity and New Labour is behind them all the way.
They don't like gays; the think the world was created by a god and Darwinian evolution seems like something of an inconvience to them. Facts don't bother them unless they've twisted them and although they're in a minority, they are making great inroads into our children's schools.
Well we want them out and we want to put the controls over education back with the LEA.
One of the biggest culprits is the Vardy Foundation (aka Emmanuel Schools Foundation) - run by a millionaire fundie version of Swiss Toni. Is this really the sort of guy you want in charge of your kids education?
