Christians and Muslims Unite Over LGBT Lessons.
Christians, Muslims and LGBT.
Ever since LGBT education was introduced to schools, in Birmingham, Muslim parents have been removing their children, from schools. The lessons are supposed to teach children, that people should not be judged, by their sexuality.
However, many Muslim parents feel, that the LGBT lessons are acting as a recruiting sergeant, for the homosexual lifestyle. Supporters of the LGBT lessons, which encompass other types of modern education, say there is nothing wrong with the lessons. They are merely trying to enlighten and bring understanding to children, of what growing up, respectful of one's sexuality, is all about.
The Muslims parents, however, do not see it that way. They say they are not homophobic, merely exercising their rights as parents, to take children out of classes, teaching subjects, contrary, to what the Quran says.
Whether you agree with the Muslim parents' stance or not, they should have the right to disengage their children from classes, if they think, their children are being brainwashed to accept the LGBT community.
Although the protests started all over Birmingham, they have spread to cities and towns, across the nation. Schools in Bristol, Bradford, Ealing, Manchester, Northhampton and Nottingham, have all been, picketed by the angry parents.
Schools have also been sent letters, protesting the education of young children, about LGBT subjects.
Muslims are not the only ones protesting, in Kent, protests have started, there too. Not just from Muslims, but from Christians, where homosexuality, is categorically condemned, in both the Old and New Testaments.
It seems in the last few years people of faith, particularly Christians, have been ridden over roughshod when they have questioned, the morality of the LGBT community. It seems now, faith communities, in the UK, are fed up of not being listened to. Having to bow down to the LGBT agenda and seeing their strongly held convictions, being dismissed, being labelled as homophobic, is enough.
In an equal society (which it plainly is not), all views and lifestyles, agree or not, should be tolerated. However, gays like other groups in society cannot be criticised it seems, whereas Christians for example, are fair game. Tell me, reader, where is the equality in that?
It seems now those people (mentioned) of faith, have had enough, and, they are on a collision course, with what the state thinks is right.
Parkfield Community School, Birmingham.
As mentioned in the above article, protests against LGBT lessons broke out at Parkfield Community School, in Birmingham. Muslim parents were opposed, to the teaching of LGBT lessons, based on their faith.
The protests spread to other parts of Birmingham and letters were sent out to schools, opposing the lessons. One head teacher was forced to defend the 'No Outsiders' classes, which include, the subject of LGBT.
As stated earlier, the Muslim parents, many from a conservative, interpretation of the Quran, said in principle, they were not anti-gay, merely opposed to the subject matter, being taught to their children.
Christians have joined the protests, and letter sending, to schools. For many years, Christians and Muslims, have been at loggerheads over various issues, ironically though, this LGBT matter appears to be uniting them.
While Christians and Muslims uniting on a common issue are good, there will be extremists, in both faiths, who will want to use the LGBT dispute, to push their own agenda.
Just as there are extremists in the LGBT camp, so there are in Islam and Christianity too. Extremism breeds extremism, and, in the long run, this cannot be a good thing.
Let us hope the protests by Muslims and Christians, up and down the nation remain peaceful. Let there be understanding from the faith groups, the LGBT community and the educators of our children.
