Cru­sade against Chris­tians

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Saturday Extra -

What a one-eyed, hyp­o­crit­i­cal rant by Syd­ney City Coun­cil­lor Jess Scully when she ap­peared on ABC’s The Drum com­plain­ing how Chris­tian schools “take pub­lic money” while re­tain­ing their right to up­hold their ethos.

In a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of dou­ble stan­dards, Ms Scully at the same time as­sumes it is quite OK that the taxes of Chris­tians con­tinue to be spent on non-be­liev­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, and that in­cludes her own salary.

She and fel­low pan­el­list David Marr share an un­veiled de­sire for leg­is­la­tion that would deny the in­trin­sic right of Chris­tian schools to em­ploy teach­ers who gen­uinely up­hold the tenets of their faith.

The mo­tive in at­tack­ing that right is trans­par­ent — to re­place those Chris­tian tenets with tem­po­ral po­lit­i­cal ones.

How telling that the ABC and its Marx­ists will­ingly ac­com­mo­date such a cru­sade against the Chris­tian doc­trine while re­main­ing silent on the equiv­a­lent, but more hard-line doc­trine held by Is­lamic schools. John Ray­ment, Lake Cathie
