On 24th March a 73 year-old scripture teacher was removed from the Year 6 class room of a Grafton public school after she informed children that the 2009 Victorian bushfires were God's punishment for that state decriminalising abortion.
Shades of Danny Naylor!
According to Monday's The Daily Examiner a spokesperson for the Clarence Valley Ministers' Fraternal (who train these religious educators) described the incident as "a slip of the tongue".
Yeah, a slip that was so-oo long that calling it that is pure spin.
What this incident shows is that religious instruction has no place within a secular public school curriculum.
