End the Politicisation of the National Trust

The National Trust has been aggressively promoting a “progressive” ideology which seeks to erase the role of religion in public life and wishes to compel others to support an ideology which they oppose.

Earlier this year the National Trust have

• removed the word “Easter” from “Easter Egg Hunt” so now they simply have a chocolate “Egg Hunt”.
• attempted to force its volunteers to where LGBT Pride badges in support of LGBT causes.
• introduced intrusive and unnecessary question probing into the sexual lives of their volunteers. In an online survey, the charity is asking its volunteers to reveal their 'gender identity', giving them the choice of 'male, female, trans, non-binary or intersex'.

Each of these moves is entirely unneccessary and each shows how the National Trust is slowly implementing a "progressive" ideology which seeks to erase religion and force othes into a particular way of thinking about issues associated with sex and marriage.

The politicisation of the NT is clear for all to see and the outgoing head , Dame Helen Ghosh, has admitted “We have alienated traditional members”.

The NT exists to preserve out nations heritage, property and land, for everyone to enjoy. This is not an ideological project and should not become so.

Please sign this petition to the leadership of the National Trust alerting them to your displeasure and asking them to stop politicising the National Trust.

Stop Politicising the National Trust

To whom it may concern,

I find myself greatly disappointed at the continued politicisation of the National Trust. The body exists for the preservation of our nation’s heritage for all to enjoy, not to impose an ideology on its members/volunteers.

This year, the National Trust has

- removed ‘Easter’ from the Easter Egg Hunt (now just the Egg Hunt).
- attempted to force its volunteers to promote LGBT pride through the wearing of badges – those who did not who to be relegated to work away from the view of the public.
- introduced intrusive and unnecessary questions into its survey asking about the sexuality of its volunteers.

The draconian attempt to force people to endorse a particular ideology against their will is especially loathsome.

I ask you to cease the politicisation of the National Trust. The purpose of the National Trust is clear, and it should not be abusing its charitable status to promote the ideological preferences of its leadership.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
