|This is not how Australian|
education is supposed to be
Professor Richard Dawkins has said that he considers Faith Schools to be child abuse.
Here at Ex-Christadelphians we agree and we believe that for the well being of the students they should be opposed.
We do not object to Church owned schools. My own three children attend a great Uniting Church owned school, Haileybury College. There they receive a well balanced education free from religious proselyting.
We do object to extreme Faith Schools like Heritage Colleges, where preaching to the children is a declared intention of the school. That is quite different to religious education. We think that public money should NOT be spent converting children to a religious sect.

A great example of a Church Owned School
No preaching to students here!
Haileybury teachers would never think of preaching to children. They would know that it is wrong. If they tried to preach in school I would guess that they would be dismissed .
My children are genuinely free.
Children with an imprinted faith are not free. They have been cruelly prejudiced in favour of one brand of religion and psychologically they are trapped. This is not healthy for children.
On a You Tube video produced by a Heritage school in Sydney Australia the narrator stated that the purpose of Heritage is:
|Heritage College say they intend to|
"Indelibly educate them for ever."
- What about the children's rights?
What do they mean by that statement?
I use the word "brainwash" and the Christadelphians use the phrase "Indelibly educate for ever."
That's what they do to children in North Korea. They indelibly imprint them with political ideology.
Are they telling us that they intend to INDELIBLY inculcate Christadelphian values and beliefs into these children?
But what if society does not agree with those values and beliefs?
Education should never be "Indelibly" seared into any one's brain. The possible implications of that are sinister.
Young children need to grow up free from racial, political and religious prejudice. They should be free to form their own opinions and judgements about social issues. Schools run by cults and sects cannot encourage this freedom of thought. By definition they seek to inculcate a particular worldview into the minds of the youngsters and by and large they succeed.
Christadelphians who home-school their children are even worse in my opinion and demonstrate a worrying paranoia about normal society that should not be prejudiced into the minds of their children.
Christadelphians Propose To Use Heritage College For Preaching To Non-Christadelphian Children
In my view this is a violation of children's human rights.
Adelaide Heritage College Opposes Humanism Influences Of Modern Education Systems
In society humanism, or to be humanistic, or a humanitarian, is considered to be an admirable quality; something to be encouraged in students. But by the logic of Christadelphianism, humans are considered to be sinful. So "humanistic" is hurled around as an insult to the rest of us and their children are taught not to be humanists. Instead they are taught to be Christadelphians.

Heritage College science classes?
Teaching children the teacher's "opinion" about Creation" in class time is teaching Creation in the classroom. Let's not play with words here. Let's have some honesty in this debate.

This book is advocating the murder of millions of humans by the Chistadelphians
I assume that the students at Heritage Colleges are not being told that this is the proposed end result of believing the Gospel as taught by the Christadelphians. Why not? If a Heritage College has Wi Fi, there is nothing to stop children accessing this Christadelphian book online and discovering what their religious teachers' faith is proposing for their future.
Our Message to Heritage College Students and Parents
If any Heritage students are reading this, I encourage you to Click here and read the entire chapter 15 of this disgusting book. Then tell your parents and all your friends about this Christadelphian proposed killing of the peoples of our World when Christ returns. Then demand to leave your school and move to a normal school where the owners don't belong to a religion that advocates the murder of unbelievers in God's Kingdom.
Yes, I know that's not what you are being taught at Heritage College. But read it for yourselves and draw your own conclusions. Are you being fooled by your Christadelphian teachers? Do they have a hidden agenda that is not being told to you?
The Christadelphian reply may be that they will be "doing God's will." That tells you what sort of genocidal God they serve. If they tell you "Oh we don't believe that any more" ask them how you can trust anything else they are telling you if they changed their minds about the mass murder idea. Ask them why they are still selling that evil book and even offering it available free of charge on the Internet!
Concerned parents of students at Christadelphian Heritage Colleges are welcome to contact us for further information and hand-out sheets. Send us an email and we can give you a telephone contact number to call if you need to discuss.
For more information about the dangers of Christadelphian values and thinking on young people, see this website where victims of Christadelphian upbringings tell their traumatic stories:
It's not good enough to say "The students can make up their own minds when they are older." That is not true. Religious prejudice is extremely hard to overcome when people are older and this explains why the overwhelming majority of people in the World remain in their family religion for life. I believe that this sort of thing is an abuse of children's human rights.
It is our opinion that the abuse of innocent, vulnerable children's minds and the abuse of their human right to a prejudice free education is wrong. We are concerned by Faith Schools that may use education as a cover to instill their own religious prejudice into young minds.
