Queensland’s evangelism ban can’t prevail against law : Comments

By Mark Fowler, published 10/8/2017

A 2013 ruling, upheld on appeal to the Victorian Court of Appeal, that the sharing of faith by students who had attended religious instructions classes did not amount to a “detriment” to those with whom they shared.

I don't have issue with the Christmas cards and I think it would be wrong to ban people from giving them to their friends.

But I do have issue with Islamic terrorists kids in Punchbowl Primary School, forcing other kids to recite the koran and threatening to behead teachers.

In a world that is only concerned with 'equality' then I'h happily lose the christmas cards at school if I could also lose Islamic terrorist kids.
The question is why should I have to?

Go back to where you bloody came from.
Stop trying to sodomise my country.

One big issue that needs to be addressed is that religion is not privite. To my knowledge no religion ever claims to be privite, but tries to make it a way of life. The simularities between religions from there frays and differs depending on each religion. But make no mistake that asking to keep s person's religous life privite is in it's own way telling them not to practice it at all. It's an all or nothing kind of thing. A way of life or broken pieces out of a religion.

That has to be said and understood. A second pressing issue is specifically with this sitution in the schools. If a student is not allowed to speak freely, that will harm their apility to learn. In the school system forcing religous activities and discussions will harm the students and will likely cause a shift to remove children from those schools.

Personally I'm quite happy with a population that is mostly literate. Creating an instutionilized class war between secular and religion will worsen the education of the population as a whole. Is this measure worth it?!
