"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

What's Happening In Scotland?

I daresay that what the video shows isn't an isolated incident and neither will it be confined to Scotland, it's just that this particular visit was captured on film.



I have to ask - Why?  Can the children not learn something about Islam without visiting a mosque for lessons or being taught "correct positions and basic etiquettes"?  When did they last visit a Stupa, a Temple, a Cathedral, a Meeting House or just a plain old-fashioned Church?  Are they ever given religious lessons by a Rinpoche, a Guru or a Preacher? Why is it appropriate to indoctrinate via religious garb, worksheets and 'goody bags'?

For the record, it is a state school and I think it's time religion was left outside the school-gates.  You might think I'm being picky but this sort of thing makes me feel as uneasy as those videos coming from the US where school-children sing songs of praise to Obama.

  1. I agree. It's time for religion to stay at home.

    1. I wish more parents would take more responsibility for their children and their children's education. If they can't then all religious involvement in schools should be banned. Even Christian, if that's what it takes.

    1. Intolerance is what we've come to expect from Islam. There must be a peaceful side to it somewhere but I haven't been able to find it.

    I would guess that the concept of 'dhimmitude' was not explained to them.
