Equality Religion Child Welfare

We're campaigning to end religious discrimination in state schools. We believe Christians-only bible lessons are making schools unwelcoming to children.

We want to change the law so these will stop and there will be:

# no religious songs and prayers in assemblies

# no peer pressure on children or their parents to go against their beliefs,

# but there will be protection for education about religions and non-religious views, including the right of privacy, and the right to express one's views.

    Great cause, with 2 young kids about to attend primary school I was shocked to find out this is still happening and legally supported.

I'm David. I'm a Christian atheist and have worked with people from religious and non-religious groups, helping to build a team who will defend the rights of children of all backgrounds.

My co-leader Tanya Jacob has been an advocate for parents and children facing religious discrimination, and we are filing a joint complaint against the law, to take to the High Court, and beyond.

One question has been asked already. Check it out and ask yours here.
“If our primary school didn't have insidious CRI then they would be getting this money as 2 terms of school donation. Sadly for them, they do, so here you go David & Tanya, add it to your coffers.”
“Hi David and Tanya, I hope I got the amount correct above, it is for two thousand dollars. Thank you for doing what you are doing - I would love to see you succeed. Best wishes, Stuart Landsborough”
“Let's push this over the $21,000 mark.”
“Keep up the fight!”
“Yes David and Tanya, I've always been a secularist. I'm also a Liberal Socialist. I believe in feeding the poor, healing the sick, sheltering the homeless and I advocate for equal rights for all. Building a seperation between church and state ensures no one group can ostracise another. I also advocate for giving away wealth, so here's another donation.”
“I do not answer prayers but I respond to sound logical arguments. Go reason.”
“Well done on the work to date - let's get the law changed, we trust this donation will support these efforts.”
“Indoctrination in schools encourages segregation. There should be no such things in schools. I do not think that the state should subsidise the indoctrination of children in schools in any way. Surely, that should be against the law in a secular state. Freedom of religion is okay, but it is sneaky to use that as an excuse to indoctrinate children in any school that receives any state funding.”
“Keep up the good work!”
“The fight to make our state schools truly secular continues. Been there, done that , bought the Tshirt :-)”
