Quotable Quote: Creationist College

Emmanuel College

The principal, Nigel McQuoid, and his predecessor, John Burn, wrote in 1997: “To teach children that they are nothing more than developed mutations who evolved from something akin to a monkey and that death is the end of everything is hardly going to engender within them a sense of purpose, self-worth and self-respect.”
