The Atheist Foundation of Australia would like their prime minister to answer one simple question:
Dear Prime Minister. Against the strongly expressed concerns of mental health professionals, teacher unions and secular organisations, why do you allow the outrageous situation to continue where largely unqualified, religious evangelists have access to young children in public schools, in the form of the National School Chaplaincy Program?
She’s been dodging it, of course, and I suspect that if she were backed into a corner she’d be entertainingly frantic in her efforts to escape. So let’s corner her! And she has made the mistake of making that possible.
Dear members and supporters,
OurSay is giving us the opportunity to directly ask Prime Minister

outrageous taxpayer funded National School Chaplaincy Program.

Gillard and all of Australia that very Saturday.
