Mo vs. ‘mos: Muslims protest gay school lessons

Caption: Muslim parents make their feelings known to a representative from Stonewall.

For months, Labor and the Australian left have been hyperventilating about the Morrison government?s refusal to strike down religious freedom laws that may theoretically allow schools to refuse gay teachers or students. The whole affair is steeped in the left?s trademark hypocrisy: not only were these very laws introduced by Labor in 2010, critics have not been able to cite one instance of an ?lgbt? student being expelled by a religious school.

Even more hypocritically, the left shriek and gibber exclusively about Christian schools ? and conveniently ignore the genuinely homophobic camel in the classroom. Quote:

A primary school that taught pupils about homosexuality as part of a programme to challenge homophobia has stopped the lessons after hundreds of children were withdrawn by parents in protest. End of quote.

Tut-tut, must have been one of those disgustingly intolerant Christian schools, surely? Quote:

Parkfield community school in Saltley, Birmingham, has been the scene of weekly protests over the lessons, which parents claim are promoting gay and transgender lifestyles?On Friday about 600 Muslim children aged between four and 11, were withdrawn from the school for the day, parents said. The school would not confirm the number?Last month, the Guardian reported that the assistant headteacher of the school was forced to defend the lessons after 400 predominantly Muslim parents signed a petition calling for them to be dropped from the curriculum. End of quote.

But, while it?s easy to indulge in a bit of schadenfreude ? and while Muslims in Britain are certainly far more homophobic than non-Muslims ? it?s fair to note that the parents here might have a legitimate complaint. Quote:

The issue was first raised by Fatima Shah, who pulled her 10-year-old daughter out of the school, saying children were too young to be learning about same-sex marriages and LGBT rights in the classroom.

?We are not a bunch of homophobic mothers,? she said. ?We just feel that some of these lessons are inappropriate. Some of the themes being discussed are very adult and complex and the children are getting confused.

?They need to be allowed to be children rather than having to constantly think about equalities and rights.?

Shabana Mahmood, the MP for Birmingham Ladywood, spoke out after parents in her constituency complained that primary schools were teaching their children about same-sex relationships.

She said parents did not oppose sex and relationship education, but felt their children were too young for some of the things being taught. End of quote.

I don?t really buy the ?not homophobic? line, given the thoroughgoing homophobia evinced by Britain?s Muslims, but for the right or wrong reason, these parents have a point. These are exactly the concerns that many non-Muslim parents have. Parents are disturbed that government-mandated indoctrination programs, which many liken to state-sponsored grooming, are being used to subversively inculcate very young children with extremist Queer Theory ideology. Their concerns have been roundly ignored by governments in thrall to tiny cliques of dogmatic activists. Quote:

However, the chief inspector of Ofsted, Amanda Spielman, supported the school, saying it was vital children knew about ?families that have two mummies or two daddies?.

[MP Liam] Byrne, whose constituency includes the school, has suggested parents, faith leaders in the Muslim community and the LGBT rights group Stonewall could work together on a curriculum. End of quote.


Yeah, right. Let?s see the mincing poofs and trannies from Stonewall try preaching their nonsense at Friday night prayers. Which they won?t, of course. Just as they blamed Christians for a gun-toting Muslim massacring 50 people at a gay nightclub, the rainbow brigade are too cowardly to pick on a group who?ll fight back. They know perfectly well that the only stone wall the rug-pilots are interested in is the one they throw the rug-munchers off.
