Teach Don’t Preach – Please join the discussion on religion in Irish schools
If you would like to discuss any of these ideas further, you can do so on the Atheist Ireland discussion forum.
You don’t have to be a member of Atheist Ireland to join the discussion forum. It’s a place where you can ask questions and share ideas.
Our discussion forum is moderated in order to protect from offensive behaviour. You question or answer may not appear immediately. Please bear with us in any delays – we are all volunteers and have no staff.
As well as the general discussion page here you can also enter comments under other topics – such as the lead page on Human Rights.
Atheist Ireland believes that a secular education system is essential to the building of an ethical and secular society. One of the most powerful ways in which religion maintains its hold on society is by teaching children fantastic tales as truth when they are at an intellectually formative age.
Atheist Ireland is an advocacy group that promotes reason and atheism over superstition and supernaturalism, and that campaigns for an ethical and secular Ireland where the state does not support or fund or give special treatment to any religion.
