The Christian Democratic Party believes that the NSW Government’s $18 million funding, declared yesterday, needs to be explained and clarified to the Christian community.
The terror security funding has been allocated predominantly to Jewish and Islamic schools around NSW. “It is reassuring that the Government is taking measures in protecting school children, but can the Government guarantee that there is no threat to our Christian schools? asked Rev Fred Nile”.
“There has been a series of vandalism and hate messages towards Christians in the past year including the desecration at a Ukrainian Church in West Sydney, vandalism at St Andrew’s Catholic Church and the Virgin Mary statue at St Charbel’s Church in Punchbowl was destroyed along with hate messages and broken windows”.
Rev Nile also stated that, “What we are experiencing world-wide is predominantly Christians who are being threatened, persecuted and attacked and one would presume that in the Government’s announcement of security measures in schools yesterday, that our Christian schools and Churches would equally be included” said the Christian Democratic Party Leader, Rev Fred Nile.
