Education Department officials in Queensland have decided that primary school students can’t talk about Christianity or even give Christmas cards because this is “evangelism” and creates an unsafe environment. This policy, which officials admit is unsupported by any statute or regulation, has the smell of totalitarianism. It also has the smell of discriminatory bigotry. It doesn’t apply to discussion about Islam, Judaism, or Hinduism, politics or terrorism nor does it affect greetings, cards or gifts celebrating Hanukah, Ramadan or Diwali – it just targets Christianity and Christian students.
