The National Secular Society is a British campaign group that seeks to end the influence of organised religion in British public life. It seeks to:

  • end 'privileged' religious input to policy and law making
  • keep public services free from religious control
  • abolish the established church and remove its political and legal privileges
  • bring publicly-funded religious schools under local authority conrol and open them to all
  • abolish blasphemy laws[1]

The National Secular Society was founded in 1866 by the radical Charles Bradlaugh.
