That’s not really the point. Cymorg may not want to become a member of a school board – or, for that matter, a Supreme Court judge – but if there’s a rule which arbitrarily excludes him from the post, or a rule or practice which puts an unjustifiable barrier in his way, that’s still offensive.
The issue, though, is whether it a particular rule or practice is arbitrary or unjustifiable. It seems to me reasonable for a school with a Catholic/Christian/Jewish/Secular ethos to aspire to have a board of management made up of people who share, and subscribe to, that ethos. The problem for people of a secular outlook is not so much that religious schools exist but that, to a large extent, only
religious schools exist, and they are effectively denied the education they want for their children. Analysing this problem in terms of the difficulty for an atheist in joining the board of management of a religious school is not helpful.
