These people really don't get it

H/T Scott Hedges

This video shows how opponents of ethics classes in NSW public schools really don't get it. They acknowledge what a privilege it is that they are able to teach their religious beliefs in NSW public schools (with the opportunities that involves to proselytise) ... and yet they still think they have a basis for opposing anything that might be competition. Don't they realise how stupid and hypocritical they look in this video?

Of course the elephant in the room is this: why are the churches given opportunities to proselytise in state schools in the first place? How does that fit with the idea of a secular state?>
