    I think faith schools should be banned because they do not value other religions the same way. Otherwise just make them private, i guess.

    Yes for the following.

    (Original post by Margaret Thatcher)

    - Complete removal of religion from governance (Lords Spiritual, Queen being Head of the C of E, and so on).

    - Providing no social, political, or physical privileges to religion.

    - No requirement to provide places of worship to theists. Planning permission would be treated completely equally to everything else.

    People would still be able to worship privately, they would simply not receive any privileges in public. So, a Christian (for example) would receive as much legal or social privileges for their beliefs as a Communist does - nothing.
    No for the following

    - Banning of faith schools.
    - Disestablishment of the Church of England.
    - Removal of religion from hatred laws.
