This blog contains various articles and stuff to help you achieve a decent grade in your RS GCSE.

There is a box over there on the side with all the labels for various posts, key terms such as 'Just War'. So when you want to look at a specific key term you can click on those to find all the relevant posts. You then read these posts to enhance your knowledge and understanding of that topic. It really is that simple!

I very much look forward to checking the stats for this blog to discover that literally none of you have bothered to read any of it.

Footballer and model seek legal humanist wedding

A footballer and a model are mounting a court challenge to have their upcoming humanist wedding recognised as legal, arguing that they are being denied the rights given to religious couples.

Laura Lacole is marrying the Leeds United and Republic of Ireland midfielder Eunan O’Kane in Northern Ireland next month. The couple, both humanists, want a ceremony that reflects their beliefs, but the only legal options available to them are a religious or civil service.
