Increased Thought Control in the UK

Secular Humanism is a religion. 

Evolution is religious in nature. It looks like the UK is forcing adherence to a state religion, and evolutionism is a cornerstone. 

"Stop that, Cowboy Bob! Evolution is about science!" 

 An evolutionist disagrees: 
‘Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. I am an ardent evolutionist and an ex-Christian, but I must admit that in this one complaint—and Mr [sic] Gish is but one of many to make it—the literalists are absolutely right. Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today. ‘… Evolution therefore came into being as a kind of secular ideology, an explicit substitute for Christianity.'
Michael Ruse

The four biggest bigot groups in the UK are at it again. They already forced the teaching of origins in government-run schools to be regulated. Now they want evolutionary dogma to be taught as unquestioned fact.

Is this not contrary to the spirit of scientific inquiry and education? Protecting evolutionism against scrutiny is not education, it is brainwashing. That's right, I said it! True education would allow students to examine the facts, interpretations, conclusions and so on so they could decide for themselves if the evidence supports evolutionism or points to the Designer. If the evidence truly supported evolutionism, there should be nothing to fear from honest examination.

Instead, the anti-creationist thought police want students indoctrinated in their propaganda, and make them unable to think for themselves. (I have seen many times where this is working — Darwin's Stormtroopers attack creationists and are dumbfounded when creationists show them the folly of their presuppositions and fundamentally flawed worldview.) Instead, students become drones, unable to do critical thinking. 

I guess creationists in the UK can no longer say, "It's my country, too!" How good is that?
The UK Government, following a campaign by the British Humanist Association (BHA), the National Secular Society (NSS), the British Centre for Science Education (BCSE), and the Royal Society, is now threatening to remove funding from free schools that do not teach evolution as a “comprehensive, coherent and extensively evidenced theory.” The new rules will apply from 2013. CMI has previously commented on this secular humanist campaign, and provided a time-line of recent events here. I have also offered my response.
This further ruling is now seen as a necessary move to close a loophole because the secularists fear that free schools (that is, privately-run schools receiving state funding) may simply not teach evolution at all to get around present legislation. Sir Paul Nurse is reported as saying that,
What are the Darwinists so afraid of, that they must hide their pet theory behind a legal fig leaf? No other scientific idea gets such legislative protection from scrutiny.
“The new clause in the funding agreement should ensure that all pupils at free schools have the opportunity to learn about evolution as an extensively evidenced theory and one of the most fundamentally important tenets of modern biology.
The development of the theory of evolution is an excellent example of how science works and there is a clear consensus within the scientific community regarding both its validity and importance.”
