Parents with kids in NSW State Primary Schools will know by now that Fred Nile and Premier Barry O’Farrell are discussing doing away with hard won Ethics classes. This fantastic article is from an 11 year old talking about why he wants the classes to stay.
The facts show that only 33 per cent of the world is Christian, and in NSW a quarter of children choose not to attend lessons on theological scripture. I think it is possible to be non-religious and a good person.
By all means, Mr Nile, you go out and be as Christian as you want; I respect that entirely. But that does not give you and your supporters the right to attempt to shape a future generation of adults in your mould – that is a religious conservative.
Parenting – your doin it rite. [yes grammar pedants that was deliberate]
