I live in New Zealand and this country is by and large secular but we have our dose of faith cancer here too. While the cancer tends to be benign it has recently flared up and I was hoping to generate some ideas as to how to treat the disease.
In the paper today (link below) it was found that many Intermediate schools have Bible (Christian) lessons and that many schools do not know the provider of the lessons or what the content is. The lessons are taught by way of a skirting around the law of not teaching religion in schools in that schools are able to "close" for half an hour during school hours and during this time Bible class can take place.
Politicians have no interest in talking about this subject so I don't hold my breath for a legal fix to the loop hole described above and there seems to be very little in the way of public awareness techniques to get this subject on the agenda and talked about more.
I don't suppose Richard that you have any plans to come and speak in New Zealand anytime soon? failing that publicity does anyone else have any ideas on how we can get these encroachments on the public radar and talked about more?
