Public schools should be secular and free from all forms of religious influence. If parents want religious indoctrination for their children, then they should opt for private religious schools which should not be eligible to receive public funding.

We live in a secular state. Taxpayers should not fund religious education, and it should be a crime to target gullible school children with subjective dogmas.

We need a world free if this disgusting religious bias. Our money should help people, not perpetuate belief in a false god

There are more that enough private and religious schools to cover all the pupils needing religion and there are far more essential needs in most public schools where the millions of dollars could and should be spent

For the love of Australia's School Chaplaincy Program, decency is vital.

It's wrong to have chaplains in public schools. Use the money for trained counselors instead.
