school chaplains

The decision of the Australia High Court today has probably opened up a hornets nest. This appeal against school chaplains although motivated by excluding religion and specifically christian influence in government schools, has now got the complainant probably more than he bargained for. To the cheers of the greens it was found that the federal government did not have the power to provide such funding to provide chaplains in state schools. Although not struck out on religious grounds, and more on the grounds of what power the government has. If the greens are consistent then they should also be saying that funding for cultural, sporting and even “environmental” activities by non government organisations should also be stopped. interesting days ahead
