The choice is yours

June 25, 2015

Times Higher Education reports that there have been calls to give greater prominence to faith-related matters (“Campuses urged to regard religion as a diversity issue”, News, 18 June). In my view, a university is a secular place of learning. If you want attention paid to your religion, you should go to a theological college. It is not a university’s job to pander to superstition. Religion, unlike race, gender, sexual orientation and disability, is a choice, and if you can’t modify your choice to cater for the university’s rules, you should go elsewhere.
