The debate over religious instruction in schools has emerged in court with a bid to have Satanism classes taught at some Queensland education institutions.
The state government is being challenged in the Brisbane Supreme Court over its refusal to let the Noosa Temple of Satan offer religious instruction at four state schools.
The decision was based on the Education Department’s position that the temple, created in 2019, is not a religious denomination or society, according to a letter written by department deputy director-general Peter Kelly.
But Noosa Temple of Satan leader Trevor Bell has asked the court to set aside the government’s decision by declaring the temple is a religious denomination or society.
