Freedom from Religion
South Africa 

Charter of Religion to be pushed to Parliament!!

The South African Council for the Protection and Promotion of Religious Rights and Freedoms has recently drafted and approved a Charter of Religious Rights and Freedoms to be tabled as a Law of South Africa. It is a charter that seeks to embed religion in schools, universities and state institution using the power of the state and state funds. Amongst other this charter will imply:
Schools and Universities will have the right to classify and name themselves as a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or other religion institution;
Schools will be able to openly adopt a particular religion and actively support it;
The charter compels the state to provide religious education using state funds;
Although the title seems to guarantee religious rights and freedoms, it is rather a Charter to advance religion and remove the freedom of religion from minority religions and atheists, agnostics and freethinkers.
To read the proposed charter here
The Freedom of Religion South Africa perceives the proposed Religious Charter as the biggest threat since the advent of democracy in 1994 to the separation of Church (Religion) and State. The above charter is a disguise to use state funds to further and advance religion and to embed religion in the state similar to countries such as Iran and other theocracy states.
