Anglicans take ethics course battle to P&Cs
This article was published in The Sydney Morning Herald 9 June 2010
The Anglican Church is encouraging Christians to join school P&C committees in order to ''branch stack'' them with people who will speak up for religious education over the secular ethics classes being trialled in NSW primary schools.
The Anglican website created to argue the case for scripture classes includes a page entitled ''Whose P&C is it again?''. It states P&Cs may be ''co-opted for the cause of removing scripture from schools''.
''If Christians are not there in numbers to be the gospel voice of reason and honesty, our schools will be the poorer for it,'' the website, sreontrial.com.au, says.
