Let us pray

"Let us (not) pray", our headline gloated some days ago after there'd been a most welcome recommendation that kids under sixth-form age should be able to opt out of talking to fairies in assembly in UK schools. Seems the government have now rejected this. Bastards!

The recommendation came from the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights (JCHR), and said that school pupils of "sufficient maturity and intelligence" should be able to opt out of religious education and collective worship.

Now the National Secular Society says it's planning legal action against this pisspotical law that forces kids to have conversations with invisible people.

Er, can we have a reality check here? What year is it? Is the whole country mad, or is it just me and the National Secular Society?
