Ron Williams def National School Chaplaincy Program

In what has to be the best news of the year so far, and likely also the best news of the century so far, Ron Williams, who took the NCSP to the High Court of Australia, has won his case.  :)

The High Court decided that the funding agreement between the Commonwealth Government and Scripture Union Queensland was invalid as it was beyond the executive power of the Commonwealth.

Next time I see Ron, I'll buy him a beer/coffee/dinner.  I've already donated money to his legal expenses via a few routes, and this will be a more personal "thanks" for his defence of sanity in the face of the religious infiltration of our education, political and health systems.

Have a read of for some more information on this decision.
