Ian Harper, a board member of Access Ministries, has exposed some of the untruths often directed at chaplaincy.

In an article for The Australian yesterday he explains the role chaplaincy plays in schools.

He addresses some of the confusion that often clouds the debate, and says that:

By supporting school chaplaincy and securing a place for special religious instruction, governments undergird rather than undermine pluralism in our society.

They stand against a narrow-minded secularism that denigrates all world views apart from its own.
