Ok, not everyone is a critic. Some recent blog posts we noticed below. Also see BHA page on Your Support.
Left Outside: “Children are innocent, they are yet to develop the power to choose for themselves, and so it is unfair to arbitrarily label them with the philosophical beliefs of their parents.”
Always win when you’re singing: “just as most of us turn away from pushy parents, who make it impossible for a child to give up an activity, however much they might dislike it, so it cannot be right for a parent to try and force a child to follow a faith.”
Friendly Atheist: on Ruth Gledhill’s article; “Clearly, they couldn’t get past the kids’ images to read the words written on the ads. These are not Christian children. They are the children of Christian parents. Get. It. Right. And stop labeling them.”
Vraie Fiction: “I grew up in a school system that was labelling us as Catholics before we could even understand what it meant and what ideology it was defending. I wish we had then a healthy dose of secular reflection introduced in the public space, it might have freed my mind then.”
