You might remember the story from last month about a group of Muslim parents who were threatening to take their children out of a Birmingham, U.K. elementary school that was teaching children about LGBT rights and homophobia. The school’s principal defended the “No Outsiders” project, but parents argued that the curriculum clashed with their Muslim faith and that the children were too young to be talking about LGBT issues.
A month later, the school has dropped the “No Outsiders” project after hundreds of parents pulled their children from the school for a day in protest.

A primary school that taught pupils about homosexuality as part of a programme to challenge homophobia has stopped the lessons after hundreds of children were withdrawn by parents in protest.
Parkfield community school in Saltley, Birmingham, has been the scene of weekly protests over the lessons, which parents claim are promoting gay and transgender lifestyles.
On Friday about 600 Muslim children, aged between four and 11, were withdrawn from the school for the day, parents said. The school would not confirm the number.
Are four-year-olds now going to be committing hate crimes against gays?
Make Intersectionality a board game and see who wins.

Well, now we know who ranks higher on the oppression chart.

@GadSaad I guess being Muslim gives you more oppression points, Useful information to know.

Did anyone honestly think there was ever going to be any other result than this one. Now try imagining a Christian group being pandered to like this.

I'm curious how this would be presented if it were Christian parents protesting.
Just kidding, I already know.

If the parents were Christian they would have been visited by social services, threatened with fines or imprisonment and questioned by police for 'hate-think'

But I’ve been conditioned by my fellow LGBT community that it’s only Christians that hate us, and that Islam is peaceful, loves homosexuality and any criticism is “islamophobia” … so how can this be? 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ /sarcasm

I don’t understand the politicians saying that “religious views should be taken into account.” Why? Why is saying “homophobia is bad” any less necessary when someone has a religious background? You’re just legitimising homophobia on religious grounds

Constructive dismissal. It will cost them a fortune.

Irrespective of the religion involved, children should not be subjected to LGBT politics.
— LE CHIFFRE (@Deepsleeper8) March 4, 2019
I'm wondering which subject this is being taught under.
— DUH (@Need2BUsed) March 5, 2019
I honestly think it's a good thing to stop these lessons. Children don't need to be exposed to this, nor would i allow my child to be taught these lessons. You're not giving anyone a choice, you're just forcing it upon them.

How are these kids expected to get a degree, or have any sort of future, without full knowledge of the complexities of LGBT?

Be assured they will do fine without all this indoctrination at an early age. Let them be children

Maybe if schools ever become proficient in teaching reading, writing and arithmetic they may consider teaching sexuality.

Can we stick to math, science, language, and history? It might seem radical, but we have plenty of woke people who can barely read or do basic math.
