UK teachers' union aggressively fighting Christians/creationists

by on

We are seeing the secular world increase its opposition to Christians/creationists in the USA and other parts of the world. In a very recent article in the Guardian newspaper (London), we read about the opposition from Britain’s biggest teachers union—called the "NUT"! So what did the NUT say?

Teachers are to call for an end to state funding for faith schools in an attempt to halt the growing influence of religious organisations in education and end the controversial teaching of creationism.

Britain's biggest teaching union, the National Union of Teachers, warned yesterday that religious fundamentalists were gaining control of state schools--predominantly through the government's city academy programme---and some private businesses had too much influence over the curriculum.

A motion to be debated at the NUT's annual conference in Torquay over the Easter weekend calls for an end to state funding for faith schools, and legislation "to prevent the growing influence of religious organisations in education and the teaching of creationism or intelligent design as a valid alternative to evolution".

You can read the rest of the article about the NUT at this link: The UK Guardian.

Pray for the AiG ministry in the UK. Next week, Mally and I leave for the UK to speak at AiG--UK’s first-ever major conference. The above article is a good reminder of how important it is for us to be involved in the UK. We praise the Lord that AiG--UK is growing in leaps and bounds.

I had various meetings all day today. I also saw a mock-up of the new Answers magazine---all I can say is WOW! It’s going to blow your socks off! If you haven’t subscribed yet, go to: Answers Magazine. And guess what I did this afternoon---yes, it’s lawn-mowing time!

On Tuesday I have more meetings and a secular news interview.

Thanks for stopping by,
