No room for Jesus at Easter Show...

The New South Wales Bible Society says its application to have a Jesus: All About Life stall at Sydney's Royal Easter Show has been knocked back for dubious reasons.The society's chief executive, Daniel Willis, says his staff were told in February there would be space available for the stall, and negotiations were under way about its size and location.But Mr Willis says the Royal Agricultural Society has now told him there is an unwritten policy to refuse exhibitions by religious or political groups at the show, which officially opens today.Mr Willis says he is disappointed that a stall focusing on the reason for Easter has been knocked back."It's run at a time when Christians across this country are reflecting on and remembering the death and resurrection of Jesus," he said."Here's one great event that's billed as a family event and something as significant as Christian input is excluded from that whole activity"...
