In a letter to the Charity Commission, the Free Speech Union said they are concerned that the actions of Purpose of Life, a charity local to the school in West Yorkshire, could “expose the teacher to serious disrepute and physical harm as a result of teaching his students about a controversial topic”. Their letter went on to say: “The exercise and promotion of the right to free expression should not have such potentially dire consequences in this country. We therefore ask that the Commission investigate Purpose of Life’s letter as a serious incident. We believe it has breached its obligations as a charity.”
