Bradford's low standards


“Green MP Sue Bradford says it is disappointing two Christian schools still refuse to clarify whether their staff use corporal punishment on children.

Wainuiomata Christian College and Auckland's Taradale Park Christian School have been warned to disclose their policy on physical punishment - or face closure.

Sue Bradford says it is time some Christian schools caught up with modern education.”

Someone should break the news to Bradford that throughout history, it has been the the secular scientific world catching up with Science according to the Bible . I think the whole thing is that Christian schools do not want to “catch up” with modern education.

It is likely that two Christian schools are going to be forced to close their doors, leaving many of the children to the mercy of the State machine. That modern marvel of social engineering. If the parents are happy with senior staff members of the school handing out the odd wallop every now and then, then what is the problem?

This recent turn of events has surely got to get your hackles up. If this is what they are doing before total repeal of Section 59, have a little think about what will be next on the agenda. It could be criminilisation of passing on to your child your own values, whether they be religious, or just core values to live by. It could well be what you may or may not feed your child for breakfast.
