Tim blogs some comments about religious freedom in the West (esp. NZ) over at SansBlogue in light of the recent provision of dedicated Muslim prayer facilities at a “secular” NZ high school.

While it’s live you can hear the interview that the Minister of Education, Trevor Mallard, gave to Linda Clark on National Radio on Friday.
