It’s Samaritan’s Purse time again – Oh joy!
The kids started a new (non-denominational) school today. And my first fight with the school is this afternoon. The school is supporting the Samaritan’s Purse shoebox operation, where children fill shoeboxes with toys etc for children in eastern Europe and Africa…and then the evangelical literature is added before they’re distributed.
Am very cross indeed. I’ve sourced an alternative – another Christian organisation but one which doesn’t put anything into the boxes and doesn’t send out propaganda. I’m currently compiling a dossier for the Headteacher, with whom I expect to have an interesting discussion real soon.
Read what the Rev. Fraser wrote about their “toxic agenda” in The Guardian. If you hear of any more schools being taken in, please let us know.
