U.K. State schools 'not providing group worship'....
One foot in the dark ages

The Department for Education states that all maintained schools in England must provide a daily act of collective worship which must reflect the traditions of this country, which it says are, in the main, broadly Christian.

The National Secular Society said group worship amounted to a breach of human rights.

In a statement the group said: "England is the only country in the western world to enforce participation in daily worship in community schools.

"To do so goes beyond the legitimate function of the state and is an abuse of children's human rights, especially those who are old enough to make decisions for themselves."
