Reader’s Comment of the Day: The secular religion of equality and diversity grows more fervent as Christianity recedes


In response to Chris McGovern: Our teachers are cracking up under pressure to be cultural commissars, PerplexedSardine wrote:

The survey McGovern mentions is, I am presuming, this one:…

I can’t help but notice that the areas school leaders and governors are least concerned about include passing exams, preparing young people for work and, at the bottom, preparing them for further education.

The thing that seems to me most striking about the changes in education over the last few decades is that as schools have become less Christian, education itself has counter-intuitively become more religious, in that they are vastly more concerned with creating good citizens (a phrase from the survey) than with academia.

This seems to be a wider societal trend. Morality and the State are drawing nearer to each other, not separating. I don’t feel this is a good thing. Is Christianity ironically more secular than equality and diversity? I speak as an unbeliever (in both).
