Atheist Group Wants Court to Remove Christianity from Schools
In the first week of September 2014, news broke in national media that an atheist organisation has instituted legal proceedings in the Johannesburg High Court against six public schools (two in the Cape, and four in Gauteng), all of whom hold to a Christian ethos and Christian values. The organisation is effectively asking the Court to order that Christianity be removed and banned from the schools.
The case, which is a watershed case for religious freedom in South Africa, will in all probability end up in the Constitutional Court.

Cavendish Mall Charity Book Sale
Last week, along with offloading another 18 tonne container shipment of Bibles and books, we took part in a 4-day Charity Book Sale in Cavendish Square, an upmarket shopping mall in the Southern suburbs of Cape Town. Along with numerous other charities, we were invited to set up book and literature tables running all day, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We also offered free New Testaments to anyone who completed our

Tutu's Case for Euthanasia Will Fuel Prejudice
It is perhaps in the nature of celebrities to champion causes they perceive to be popular. Celebrity bishops are no exception and Desmond Tutu’s support for Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill is not surprising but deeply disappointing.
Dignity in Dying, the former Voluntary Euthanasia Society, has assembled over 50 actors, sportsmen, entertainers, authors and other celebrities to add weight to their campaign - similar people to those advertisers draft in to provide endorsement for consumer products.
The implication is that we should follow these celebrities and embrace their preferences.
And there is no doubt that so-called ‘assisted dying’ resonates strongly with the spirit of the age and its commitment to the beliefs that personal autonomy should trump all other considerations, that it is better to be dead than to suffer and that there are no moral absolutes.
These celebrities also fit the description of those who make most use of the law in the US state of Oregon – white, healthy, wealthy, college educated people who are used to being in control in life and want similarly to be in control in death.
