I just received this email re the ethics classes in NSW schools. there is a petition to be signed and returned to Penny Sharpe.
If you can collect some signatures I am sure they would be appreciated, It would appear we have the Anglican church doing the collecting of signatures to oppose this trial.
Dear NSW Ethics Trial Supporter,
You recently sent me an email indicating your support for the NSW Ethics Class trial for students in NSW public schools. Your support is very important at this stage.
Since that time the Australian Christian Lobby has launched a very organised campaign against the trial. MPs have had their inboxes fill with anti ethics trial messages.
The Australian Christian Lobby have also have launched a petition against the trial.
I know that there is strong support in the community for the trial.
In response I have launched my own petition in favour of the trial.
I hope you dont mind but I have attached this petition for your action. If you would like to show your support for NSW Ethics Classes, I ask that you print out the petition, get 10 other supporters to sign it and then return the original to my office as soon as possible.
An online petition would be easier but unfortunately parliament does not allow me to present petitions unless they are in the format attached.
If you need any further information, please check out my blog at www.pennysharpe.com or contact me via email.
