Warhurst told WND the committee members appeared to agree with the statements presented in the "Whereas" section of the resolution, but didn’t believe the denomination should take the step of encouraging its 350,000 members to pull their children from government school.
The pastor said he couldn’t figure out how committee members could agree that children should have a Christian education but then oppose the resolution.
According to Warhurst, those voting against the measure thought it was "inappropriate for the General Assembly to recommend that children be removed from the public schools, that it is better handled at the presbytery level and the local church level."
