-UK: Two Jewish Schools Face Closure For Not Teaching LGBT Issues?

by Dr. D ~ July 5th, 2017


What is Western civilization coming to? Two private elementary schools in London face government closure because they have violated the law by not completely teaching their students, all girls under the age of 9, about different sexual preferences and LGBT issues.  Here’s the story from PJ Media:

At least two private all-girls Jewish schools in London are facing closure after a government agency discovered that they do not teach young girls about sexual orientation and transgender identity.

A government report explained that girls "are not explicitly taught about issues such as sexual orientation. This restricts pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and does not promote equality of opportunity in ways that take account of differing lifestyles."

This report from the Office of Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Schools (Ofsted) said the Vishnitz Girls School in the north London borough of Hackney did not provide children "a full understanding of fundamental British values," Heat Street reported. The school teaches 212 children between the ages of three and eight.

Response: Note that this is a ‘private’ religious school and students are between the ages of 3 and 8 years of age. Note also that the government agency doesn’t even care whether the parents even consider it appropriate that their young children be taught any of these issues at that young age.

The religious convictions of the school’s supporters don’t even seem to be considered in this case. My question is this- are the many Muslim schools in London also expected to teach about these same ‘sexual preferences’ and issues? If not then religious discrimination and persecution is at work regardless of the law if it is unequally enforced.

This is where we are today in the West. Sexual preferences and transgender issues are trumping not only religious liberty but common sense. Particularly in the UK where street preachers have been arrested for teaching the ‘wrong’ passages in the Bible.

In the USA private schools now seem to have freedom to teach religious values but those days may be numbered. Already in California private schools must try to accommodate transgender students according to the law.  Also, recent legislation is in the works to eliminate religious schools from requiring their employees to adhere to any kind of Biblical life style standards. We have already seen in the last several years the accreditation of Christian colleges being challenged over these same issues.

Fact is, we may have a Constitution that supports religious freedom and liberty but that doesn’t mean that the government has to continue to recognize our schools and institutions, or provide any kind of funding to support them in the future including student loans. That will be the next area of contention once the LGBT activists have obtained full government recognition as on par with race when it comes to civil rights in every state and government jurisdiction.

Here’s another question I see being pushed all over the internet. Should the government continue to pay for chaplains in the military that are sponsored by churches and religious institutions that continue to ‘discriminate’ against LGBT folks and refuse to even accept federal law when it comes to same-sex marriage? Substitute schools or non-profits for chaplains and the ‘war’ continues as the First Amendment is reinterpreted to the point that it only includes those who are fully accepting of all sexual practices and preferences.                *Top
