Parents that want to take court action to stop religious education in schools have been backed by the Human Rights Commission.

The Secular Education Network is opposed to schools allowing Bible studies in state, secular schools.

They argue it promotes Christianity and marginalises any other religion.

David Hines from the Secular Education Network says just teaching the Christian faith in schools is too biased and if religion is going to be taught at schools it needs to be more far reaching.

Mr Hine joined Ryan Bridge on RadioLIVE Drive.
