I’m signing because religion should not be forced down very young children necks. Children minds are being warped with all the nonsense forced upon them. They rely on fear, shame and guilt to get the message across, all the conditions that should never be visited on children.

I want every child in Ireland to have the right to choose, when they see fit, which, if any, religious beliefs they decide. As an ex-Catholic, and parent of a 5 year old, I would rather she learn about religion her own way, instead of being told what to believe.

It's time for our publicly-funded schools to actually support the entire public rather than catering only to specific religious subgroups. Religion can still exist, it just doesn't need to be forced upon our kids in schools.

Religious discrimination needs to end, religion should have no place in any educational, political or social institutions.

I went to a Catholic primary school. It's bullshit! You're basically forced to believe whatever the school wants, or else you get discriminated against.
