Dogma is bad in any teaching stifling our natural instinct to question status quo.
Studies in religion should be balanced.
Religion is a personal belief. In that sense Atheism is a religion too.
There are good lessons in the Bible, Koran and teachings of Buddha.
Lessons that underpin societal interaction.
Could not figure out what the video was about so I voted: 1 Apathy – if there is a God then He can figure out and do something.

Just what group(s) are imposing Christianity on Queensland? If we can know the enemy, we can fight them. I’d put my money on most of these christianity promoters being the most hypocritical, immoral, and outright lying agents (if they are anything like the fundamentalists in the USA).
Hold your policy makers accountable and vote out the b*stards!

This is a desgrace to the Australian constitution. It makes me sick how christ lovers can wiggle there way into are schools and to are youth

@thepunictrader
the government is now paying 20,000 to any school that hires a chaplain. In Queensland the numbers have doubled in the past few years. This is why its more prevalent now than it was in the past.

@thecaneater “separation of church and state”?

Not when the president says “God bless America”

This is what happens to little kids! They get a religion put on them before they can decide for themselves! Smack some sense into ’em I say!

Why do they only allow bible to be taught at school? For the sake of fairness, how about qoran, rig veda, book of mormon, etc…?

Or, we can choose the easier, neutral way, that is secular education.

I went to school in Queensland and the only instance of anything like this I can remeber was a teacher saying to us that most scienctist were christians because they knew we didn’t have all the answers, or something along those lines. I know thta to be wrong now, but it was hardly imposing at the time, just a causal 1 sentence mentioned. We learnt about evolution and the like so it didn’t happen at my school. If it is happening anywhere then it needs to be quashed asap.

@Ramshobraja Queensland, like Texas shows how white colonists go “troppo” the closer you get the equator.

I just noticed that your sample letter to the Minister is signed World Citizen. I find this term concerning. What do you mean by this term?

I find this apaling that, a modern school in a well divelupt contrey would do such a thing. Discusting.
On a unrelated note this guy should read out hes text, it is darn anowing having to stop and read it and it loses some of the efect becouse when you pass it you can’t heir the childrens laghder. one thing to do to improve this video would to read the text with the childrens laghder in the background. But the musseg is note lost.

Great video and worthy cause. I wasn’t aware of the history of RE in state schools. Of course, there’s also the chaplaincy programs which are now creeping into a lot of state schools.

I’m not afraid of letting no one to talk to my kids. Those who let their kids to face different views are saying to them that as parent they did their part and that they confide that the kids will grow stronger in character facing the opposition.

The media is already making our job as parents difficult and we are challenging the school system? Is us who need to do our homeworks and teach our children with example what is wright and wrong.

All “the other gods” are already taught in our schools. Why oppose the one who shows us the end since the beginning. I do not belief in indoctrination but in the opportunity to decide if what the Bible teaches is true. Kids with a chance to hear why there is suffering in this world will appreciate the truth.
