Christians must withhold school funds

Christians with children in state schools must be persuaded to stop paying school fees.

The call comes from the leader of the HNP, Mr. Andries Breytenbach, following the court ruling that found schools cannot give preference to the Christian faith.

“If Spur could be forced to apologize and change their attitude by withholding our support, it can also be done in this case by preventing our school fees being paid,” said Mr. Breytenbach.

“The courts apparently imagine they are supreme, but they forget that the schools are funded with our taxes and school fees. To withhold tax is difficult, but keeping school fees is easy. Imagine! A school may not be openly Christian, but they may (must) be openly atheist!”

“It is now time for Christians to stand up for the glory of Jesus Christ and to say to this anti-Christian government and its courts: Jesus Christ is King. We obey Him more than you. Our churches must be asked to support the action, and if they refuse, we must force them by refusing our offerings and apply it to defend teachers that may be charged if they continue to maintain the Christian character of their schools,” said Mr. Breytenbach

He said the first prize would be to take children from state schools and to place them in Christian private schools or to teach them at home, but it is not possible for everyone.

Mr. Breytenbach said it is unacceptable that some unbelievers can prescribe to all public schools what their ethos and character may and may not be. “Let us hit the ground and take them on!”
