I just love this story. A Sikh man wants his son to go to a Christian school because if offers a good education. The Christian school will happily accept the Sikh lad, as long as he does not wear his child turban to school. I did not vomit, as the term Christian values was not used. But I am highly amused by this cultural and or religious clash.
I can't help but think when I look at what tax I pay, that some of it is going to towards subsidising these nonsense religious schools, Moslem, Jewish, Christians, and maybe there are Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist schools there too.
Every Australian child should get a good education, funded by society, that is taxpayers. No taxpayer should have to pay for crank religious education, but we do!
I think that might make me a bigot. So be it. No, I just googled bigot definitions and I am not a bigot. I just don't want my taxes going towards supernatural beliefs. Children will learn plenty about religion in history, geography, media studies, law, human rights and economics. Yes, rather a lot in economics.
