AGGRESSIVE SECULARISM SEEKS TO DESTROY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS
Humanist inspired “aggressive secularism” is becoming an issue of grave concern for Christians in all democratic countries. Nations that once functioned on the Judeo-Christian worldview are now functioning on Secularism/Atheism . The National Education Coalition was formed in October 2013 at the National Christian Apologetics Conference in response to this aggressive secularism in public education, and the successful Humanist activist assault on Chaplains in public schools via High Court judicial activism. Secularism is nothing more than a code name for “Atheism”, Thus it is “Atheism” that is being imposed on public education by way of leftist-liberal secularists.
The most extreme form of atheism is being imposed on both public and private schools science classes in the guise of “philosophical” naturalism and “scientism” – not science. The powerful global Humanist activist network has successfully used leftist-liberal judicial activism to impose “atheistic secularism” on the State and the nation under the deception that “secularism” is religiously neutral, when in fact Secularism is in reality the imposition of the atheist worldview. Humanists are not only intent on eradicating theism and all things Christian from all State and public institutions in Australia, but also from the public domain.
In the recent High Court school Chaplains William’s vs The Commonwealth decision, the dissenting conservative justice, John Dyson Heydon AC, openly expressed concern about High Court judicial activism. Justice Heydon, is a Rhodes Scholar and has a BA in history from University of Sydney, and an MA from Oxford. He is regarded as the most educated member of the current High Court bench. He has openly spoken out against Judges who “Assume a law making role”, and how judicial activism could result in the death of the rule of law in Australia. This whole scenario is not just a local or state concern, but a national and international concern. Christians must jointly take a public and national stand on this whole affair.
Several thousand Victorians took to the streets in the Annual March for The Babies on 11 October. The March is held to mourn the loss of life through abortion and to express support for women who may have had an abortion or who may be contemplating one. Record numbers at the March demonstrate that the issue of abortion is not settled in Victoria .Speakers called for the repeal the Abortion Law Reform Act 2000, which allows the killing of an unborn baby up to the time of birth. Recently released reports by the Consultative Council on Obstetric and Paediatric Mortality and Morbidity reveal that in 2010 and 2011 there were 744 post 20 week abortions. Of those, 374 were for psychosocial reasons.
Michael Gidley MP challenged the notion, commonly expressed by parliamentarians, that abortion law was permanently resolved in 2008, when the Act was passed. “This law and everything about it is wrong. A law that allows sex selection abortion, a law that takes away freedom of conscience, a law that takes away life, a law that does not provide the support and the care and fellowship to those women, to those mothers, when they need it is a law that is wrong” Victoria Police are to be commended on the professional way that they protected the March and Rally from disruption by about 50 pro-abortion protesters.
