Boys given detention for refusing to pray

education / religion / security

In England:

Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing to kneel down and ‘pray to Allah’ during a religious education lesson.

Parents were outraged that the two boys from year seven (11 to 12-year-olds) were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped.

They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at…which included wearing Muslim headgear — was a breach of their human rights.

This is what we were told would happen in George W. Bush’s America, right? Key points to take from this are that the children were forced to participate, and they were forced to participate in something that wasn’t Christian. I await the ACLU’s response.

    Just pointing out how intolerance it unacceptable — except when it’s against Christians, or when it’s kowtowing to the trendy religion of the day.
