Boys Given Detention For Not Praying To Allah In UK

Good ol' political correctness. From the Daily Mail:

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. [...]

"My daughter and a lot of other mothers are furious about their children being made to kneel on the floor and pray to Islam. If they didn't do it they were given detention. ... But if Muslims were asked to go to church on Sunday and take Holy Communion there would be war."
That last quote really does put the double standard of this P.C. B.S. into perspective.

be prepared to go to jail for not worshipping Allah at this rate.

It may come to that. We've had plenty of issues regarding Islam here in Minnesota, with the most recent being a situation similar to this post.

There is a K-8 charter school here named Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA). Some started to question if it had become a state funded Islamic school, and a substitute teacher came forward with claims that school-sponsored Muslim prayers and studies were a part of the school day.

In May, a local TV station sent a news crew out to do a report on the school and get reaction to state findings that the school needed to correct some areas related to religion. The news crew was physically confronted by representatives of the school.

The worst part is, if you change Muslim to Christian in any of these instances, the press tends to become much more negative and the schools would have been shut down for being non-inclusive.

We must stay vigilant.

That's true, anything Christian, shut down, Muslim, let's not offend them.

It's a good thing to know that we're going to win in the end.
