On Saturday 16th November members of Soldiers of Christ travelled to Camberley, the heart of Education Secretary Michael Gove’s constituency to give out leaflets in the streets about the teaching of evolution in schools. This is in response to Mr Gove’s earlier decision to ban any mention of creationism or the objections to evolution in school science lessons while at the same time introducing the teaching of evolution to children at an even younger age.
Over the summer Soldiers of Christ travelled to Camberley on numerous occasions giving out leaflets in the town centre. In addition to this, many leaflets were sent to people who wished to give them out in their own town or community. In all around 5,000 leaflets have been given out. It even garnered the attention of an atheist group who decided to bombard the Soldiers of Christ website with comments! This is a good sign that it has ruffled a few feathers.
Soldiers of Christ is now actively working with creationist groups to try and get copies of this leaflet to as many people as possible.
Soldiers of Christ Youth Leader Peter Greensmith said ‘this is an exciting opportunity to stand opposed to this government’s secularisation of our youth. At the same time we have the opportunity to share the truth that we are not here as a result of random chance, some kind of cosmic accident but we are in fact created in the image of God’.
Soldiers of Christ are planning on giving out leaflet’s in Camberley every two weeks. If you are interested in joining us or if you would like some copies of this leaflet to give out in your own area then place contact us on our email address which is [email protected]
