Today’s AGE article details the increasing pressure that ACCESS Ministry is facing from honest religious leaders. ¬†Father Craig D’Alton, who taught the controversial special religious instruction last year at North Melbourne Primary School, said he felt he was in the classroom under false pretences.

Bishop Stephen Hale of course begs to differ … stay tuned as this shapes up into a real contest between Christians who are confident that the message of the Gospel can stand alone without the assistance of the minister of education, and those who Martin Dixon has to hold open what ACCESS considers a “God given open door to reach children and young people”.
