Four parents interviewed by Ali Majokah of The Moving Media Project discuss ACCESS Ministries, religious education, it’s role in the public education system and more.

Topics include ACCESS Ministries volunteer suitability, evangelism of literal biblical belief to small children, exploitation of Victoria’s secular education legislation, the impact on children through segregation and divisiveness and the importance of inter-faith education – presently lacking in the ACCESS model.

Creationism, Heaven and Hell, Noah’s Ark “facts”, religious discrimination, wasted curriculum time and corrosion of Victoria’s unique secular education policy also come up. Originally in 1872 school education was legislatively protected from any and all religious dominance. By 1950, activist clerics sought to “Christianise” our schools.

The great camera work is by Colin Wirt. Thanks to The Moving Media Project for making this possible.
