It all gets more insane with every week that passes.
New regulations that were intended to encourage the inculcation of British Values in schools are now being usurped to force a Christian school to accept Islamification or face possible closure. The reason is that they have not invited an Imam to address the The Christian Institute school assembly, reports a charity helping to defend them from the Department for Education.
The small independent school which has not been named is in the home counties. Governors have been warned that te schools rating under the Independent Schools Standards framework would be changed from Good, to merely Adequate because of its failure to meet the new requirements on promoting diversity.
Before the left – wing idiot fringe start screeching that religion should be banned from schools, ‘fraid it would do no good you politically correct fools. The regulations could be used to force secular schools to allow Islamic preachers to address pupils.
The new rules, which were introduced after the Islamist Trojan Horse scandal to prevent radicalisation of children in Britains schools appears to have suffered from the law of unintended consequences (as any document drafted by public service workers tends to do) as they are now being used to interfere with traditional British schools instead.
The Department for Education (DfE) says promoting acceptance and engagement and tolerance and respect of all faiths and cultures in schools now means going a lot further than school trips to Mosques and Temples, which has been the case in the past. The new rules mean the state is forcing faith schools, such as Anglican, Roman Catholic and Jewish schools to invite faith leaders such as Muslim Imams who are oppsed to the teachings of the schools sponsoring faith to lead lessons.
Where will it end. Will feminist studies classes have to hear lectures on the advantages for women of polygamous partnerships? Will home economics classes be treated to lectures on how to prepare and serve human organs? Will children be encouraged to have a go at slaughtering small, furry animals halal style?
