Anti-religious education (letter)by Frank BelletNews Weekly
, June 10, 2006
Many letter writers have asked, in relation to the Labor Party's proposed changes to religious education in Queensland schools, "What are the Christian churches afraid of?"
They are afraid of the same things that I, as a parent and grandparent, would be afraid of. I would be afraid that my grandchildren, and their impressionable minds, would be subject to brainwashing from secular humanists, to turn them into different persons from what I would want for my loved ones. This was the intention behind the legislation.
Anyone who doesn't realise that Christianity is under relentless attack from its enemies, must have been living in isolation from the media for at least 30 years.
As with the movie The Da Vinci Code
, the monotonous cry from its supporters is: "What are Christians worrying about?"
I might ask what were anti-Christians, particularly in Hollywood, in a dither and worried about, when Mel Gibson brought out The Passion of the Christ
? Many of them wanted to run him out of town.Frank Bellet,
