My friends in the United Kingdom have told me that Muslims have taken over whole communities and small towns. In some of those areas, they have driven out non-Muslims by intimidation, sometimes with violence. They have forced people to sell or abandon their businesses. They’ve taken over the local governments, law enforcement and schools. Numbers of Christian churches have been turned into mosques.
Now, Lynn Small, the headmistress of Littleton Green Community School in Huntington, Staffordshire is bullying parents and students into forcing them to allow their kids to attend an Islam focused field trip called Explore Islam. The parents received a letter from Small about the field trip stating:
“The workshop is at Staffordshire University and will give your child the opportunity to explore other religions. Children will be looking at religious artefacts, similar to those that would be on display in a museum. They will not be partaking in any religious practices.”
“Refusal to allow your child to attend this trip will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s education record, which will remain on this file throughout their career.”
Additionally, Small said that she would conduct a thorough and detailed investigation into any student who is absent on the day of the field trip. Any absentee had better have a valid doctor’s note for missing the field trip or they will be labeled racist for their entire school careers. Oh yeah, the parents have to pay £5.00 ($8 US) for each child going on the field trip.
A number of parents are not pleased with Small’s threat of character assassination. Gillian Claridge told the Daily Mail:
“How dare they threaten to brand the children racist at such a young age? It’s going to make them feel like little criminals.”
“The very nature of religion is all about choice. On this occasion they were not being given any choice at all. It was a draconian move and it’s left a lot of parents fuming.”
Stacy Waldron’s 8 year old daughter attends the school and she is upset over Small’s threat, saying:
“I feel my child will be [seen as] racist if I don’t allow her to go. This is my choice, not hers, and she shouldn’t have to pay for it.”
Parliament Member Gavin Williamson from South Staffordshire responded to Small’s edit, saying:
“The idea of attaching a “racial discrimination note” to children’s education records saying it will remain on their file for the duration for their school career seems unfair, particularly when it is not the child’s decision whether or not he or she attends.”
The anger of parents and comments of others such as Williamson caused the school council to issue a second letter removing any threat of racial discrimination if they don’t attend. It also explained that the national standards requires them to study at least one other religion even though their particular school is predominantly a Christian school.
You many slough this off because it happened in the United Kingdom, but so many of the trends that take place there find their way here not long afterwards. Christianity started its rapid decline in the UK some years back and now we are starting to see its decline here in the US. The Brits got their socialized medicine first and then our liberals used them as an example to push the same concept here. Muslims moved into the UK in droves, taking over their communities and towns and now it’s happening here in the US.
We’ve already seen schools here in the US force students to pray to Allah, recite parts of the Koran and more, even though the students are Christians. Trust me; it won’t be long before American students will be forced to take field trips to mosques or Islamic cultural centers against the parent’s wishes. Note, you don’t see or hear of any public schools doing the same about teaching Christianity, having students praying to the God of the Bible or reciting parts of Scripture because that would be a violation of the non-existent separation of church and state. However, there seems to be no such complaint when it involves Islam instead of Christianity. Such is the state of America’s double standard.
