Two of the left’s favorite grievance groups are at each other’s throats at a school in Britain as gays have been tossed out of school by Muslims.
The left is very confused over this fight as Muslims have forced the school to dump a program meant to teach kids about how wonderful homosexuality is because, you know, Muslims despise gays.
They hang them, abuse them, and murder them, after all.
So, what do the liberals do? Serve their beloved Muslims or their beloved gays?
Looks like the gays lost.
According to Daily Wire:
Parkfield Community School in Birmingham, England had classes in which a program titled “No Outsiders” taught that “families look different,” in an effort to teach schoolchildren about homosexuality. The Guardian reports that the program was created by assistant headteacher Andrew Moffat, “who was awarded an MBE for his work in equality education and is also in the running for a major international teaching award.” In the program, the students read books with titles such as “Mommy, Mama and Me” and “King & King.”
Apparently, the asst. headteacher even began receiving death threats from the Muslims.
A large number of Muslim parents even raised a petition to dump the program:
The community has a great number of Muslims; the program was pulled after the school received a petition last month with over 400 signatures from parents, mostly Muslim, who have withdrawn their children from the school in protest. The Guardian reported that last Friday, roughly 600 Muslim children, aged between four and 11, were withdrawn from the school for the day.
So, the whacked-out leftists in left-wing Britain had to dump on the gays to satisfy the Muslims.
I guess considering the whole terrorism thing, it was probably a good move to go with the Muslims. Especially in Britain where they have constant terror attacks.
The gay lobby in Britain was still not very happy. One left-wing group put out a statement saying:
We are deeply worried that the school has been forced to stop teaching these important classes due to mounting pressure from some Muslim parents. It is vital that all young people, some of whom will be LGBT themselves, grow up with age-appropriate information as to the facts of life and the virtue of tolerance. The UK Government has consistently said that schools will not be able to avoid teaching respect for LGBT people on the grounds of religion and we look to them now to take action. They should not give in to bullies who are opposing the values of respect, kindness, and tolerance for all in our society.
Isn’t it terrible when leftists pummel leftists?
