NEXT BATTLE BEGINS IN THE COURT OF APPEAL 25 April 2016
Tanya and I won the right to make submissions in Jeff McClintock's court case. But the conditions were so pathetic, we would not be allowed to bring any evidence, except for the (impressive) reviews of Bible in Schools teaching by Prof Paul Morris.
Tomorrow (April 26) Jeff's lawyer Richard Francois begins an appeal in the Court of Appeal, aimed at giving us wider rights. I would like us to have full rights, to present evidence of religious harm in primary schools, secondary schools, from parents teachers, members of all religions.
We watch from the sidelines in this step, which is frustrating. It's like the tail wagging the dog; Richard's first target was Red Beach School, just one of 800 affected schools.
But one way or another we intend to be giving our full evidence in court later this year.
October at a guess.
We appreciate the dedication of our supporters who have contributed $9200 since this page started. About $1700 of that came in the last two days, when I was interviewed on TV3's show The Nation.
