Religious inequity in Australian schools

We are not alone. With as big as the USA is, and with all the political drama that occurs within our borders, sometimes we forget that the same fights happen elsewhere. Australia has a case in their high court due to the presence of federally funded chaplains in public schools. One religion is getting to teach their faith on the governments penny.

The USA has a similar problem. There are Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists and Pagans who are citizens as well. So to be fair, let them have turns teaching. The Muslim Imam can teach that sing-songy prayer to all the kids, and the Wiccan High Priestess can teach them all a spell-ritual, which is part of Wiccan prayer. Kneel here, place your grain offering there. Don’t forget Ancestor religions like the Vikings!

FAIR = all religions (including atheism) get taught, or religion gets taught at home and  church!
