Victoria’s kids deserve faith education!

“I call upon the Andrews government to reverse its decision to cancel religious instruction during school hours,” FamilyVoice Victoria State Director Peter Stevens said today.

“The Christian faith has played a key role in the development of our Western democracy. Victorian children need to understand our nation’s roots – which are reflected in our literature and our religious celebrations, as well as our system of government.

“Holidays like Easter and Christmas, and our culture’s stories – like David vs Goliath and the Good Samaritan – cannot be understood without some knowledge of Scripture. Relationships education, which the education minister says will replace religious instruction, is a poor alternative to learning about the teaching of Jesus who said Love one another as I have loved you (John 15:12).”
