UK schoolboys disciplined for not kneeling to Allah!

No, I'm not making this up either. The Daily Mail tells us that two non-Muslim 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.

They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at Alsager High School (pictured), near Stoke-on-Trent - which included wearing Muslim headgear - was a breach of their human rights.

One parent, Sharon Luinen, said: "This isn't right, it's taking things too far. I understand that they have to learn about other religions. I can live with that but it is taking it a step too far to be punished because they wouldn't join in Muslim prayer. Making them pray to Allah, who isn't who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful."

As I said, I'm not making this up.

Completely disgusting. If this were my children i would've biffed the teacher. And maybe the principal too.
But that's nothing check out the latest, toddlers who dislike spicy food are now considered racists.

Off Topic Savant, but South Africa sucks has been taken down by Google (again), anyone know if anythings being done about it.

Back to the topic at hand, yes it disgusts how cowardly figures of authority have got in the face of Islam. But thinking back I could see this happening as early as when I was 12 years old. I come from the uk (yorkshire), the R.E. (religous education) teacher and he was the biggest politically correct ass you could find. He blamed all the third world (particularly ex british empire countries) problems on Colonism (with standing Successful countries such as Malaysia, hong kong, etc) and he once damn near called the cross of saint George one day 'fascist'. the teaching profession of the uk are destroying a once great nation. Let this be a lesson to your readers from other western countries.
