  • Formally cease the practice of volunteer-run special religious instruction (SRI) during school hours.
  • Follow an objective, fair and balanced comparative syllabus for education about religions and beliefs.
  • Treat all religious organisations who wish to use the school facilities outside of the school day with transparent and equitable policies.

Fairness In Religions In School

Yesterday, Scott Hedges and Naja Voorhoeve appeared on JOY FM radio.Scott gives a compelling account into the background and nature of SRI in our schools, while Naja (from Torquay College) tells her personal story of the Biblezine controversy and adds her well qualified views on the program.This is the best radio interview conducted in a long time on this issue, by two people who have not only been personally affected by SRI, but who are well positioned to speak on how it hurts kids, families, our society and minority groups.https://soundcloud.com/firis-campaign/joyfm-interview-6-04-14 ...

Fairness In Religions In School

This is the best video produced yet, it just shows kids (these are in NZ, but they are being instructed by ACCESS Ministries materials) talking about what hash the SRI volunteers have made of teaching religion. In the end, the kids chortle about zombies, mock the idea that you can heal blind people by waving your hand over their face, and conclude that Geronimo Stilton is way better than the bible.This is the most comical thing about this whole debate. The kids and the results don't matter, it's all about the volunteers wanting to do this and the law that makes it possible. What happens to the kids as a result of it. Who the hell cares.http://www.tubechop.com/watch/2484652 ... See MoreSee Less
