Homosexual Propaganda Removed From UK Schools, But Only After Muslim Complaint
Gay group head says “fuss” from parents “will cause children to think there is something wrong”
BRISTOL, April 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Two Bristol schools hurriedly withdrew two books designed to imbue children with tolerance toward same-sex relationships after complaints by Muslim parents, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
The books, which target audiences as young as four or five years old, are King & King, a fairy tale about a young monarch who marries a prince instead of a princess, and a book entitled And Tango Makes Three about two male penguins who fall in love at the New York zoo.
Easton Primary School and Bannerman Road Community School, both in Bristol, removed the books as well as a DVD designed to teach children about families and includes gay and lesbian “families.” The move was made following complaints by 90 parents, aided by the Bristol Muslim Cultural Society. Members of the society claimed parents were upset at the lack of parental consultation over the books.
“The main issue was there was a total lack of consultation with parents,” said Farooq Siddique, community development officer for the society and a governor at Bannerman Road school. “The schools refused to deal with the parents, and were completely authoritarian. The agenda was to reduce homophobic bullying and all the parents said they were not against that side of it, but families were saying to us ‘our child is coming home and talking about same-sex relationships, when we haven’t even talked about heterosexual relationships with them yet.’”
The Bristol City Council seems to have been very concerned about maintaining good relations with the Muslim community. The two schools are 60 to 70 percent Muslim, according to Siddique’s estimate…Walton said that the Bristol City Council will be working with clerics, among others, to resolve the situation.
“Bristol City Council has temporarily withdrawn the use of materials that can be used to explain homophobia to children to ensure that both Bannerman Road and Easton primary schools can meet their legal responsibilities and operate safely,” said Walton…The schools’ reaction to complaints has been phenomenal compared to reactions from complaints by Christians over the same books in 2007. The Joint Committee on Human Rights, composed of members of Parliament and the House of Lords, issued a report in February 2007 recommending that religious schools be forced to modify their religious teaching to comply with the sexual orientation regulations.
Moral of the Story: If you want to get public schools out of your kid’s rectum, hire a Muslim to make the request. Because now we know: Islamophobia trumps homophobia — both terms of course actually having the opposite meaning of that commonly attributed to them: A homophobe is someone who is so terrified of going against the gay lobby and being smeared as intolerant that he or she supports all the gay causes and does all the gay lobby’s bidding — while labeling those who do not “homophobes”. Same definition applies for Islamophobia as regards the Muslim agenda.
