Tony Abbott is right, if you want to understand Western cultural you need to have an understanding of the Bible. Labor is being ridiculous to take from that he wants religious bible studies in state schools:
“Mr Abbott wants to take the choice away from parents and force every kid in every school to study the Bible,” the ACT Senator insisted today.
Mr Abbott suggested on Saturday “everyone should have some familiarity with the great texts that are at the core of our civilisation That includes, most importantly, the Bible.” He reiterated his remarks yesterday.
When asked why she was making the call for Mr Abbott to “rule out including Bible Studies, in any form, as part of the compulsory National Curriculum”, a nervous Senator Lundy said in Canberra at Parliament House: “Well I'm here, for a start, and I certainly feel strongly about the issue.”
However why do we need a National Curriculum? Whats wrong with competition?
