Majority don't need chaplains
Why then does the further education minister believe such wholesale provision of chaplains is necessary? If colleges are going to be inclusive - as they should be - pastoral support and moral guidance cannot be offered through a chaplaincy without the equal provision of non-religious "chaplains", counsellors or advisers. Nor can proper support for students be achieved through a "multi-faith" approach which is often lazily believed to include everyone but in fact excludes the non-religious: a majority of young people.
