    If this turns out to be true, how is it any different than making kids recite the pledge with the words "under God?"

    Both wrong, IMO.

    A pledge is too a country to protect it. I dont care which god you want to pray to. But to make them pray to a SPECIFIC god that allows for ONLY Sharia law is blasphemey. But then I guess you dont mind Sharia law and making little girls marry and have sex at any age?

    That is exactly what I was thinking but I wasn't sure if this was a private school. The English system is set up differently than the American.

    The UK has a state religion, the Church of England. It's not quite a theocracy but it does dictate a few things, eg the Monarch shall not be a Roman Catholic. I think it's disgusting but there you go.

    Of course a kid shouldn't be made to involve themselves in a religious ritual unless they choose to.

    Given we're talking about WorldNetDaily, it doesn't appear it happened quite the way they'd like you to think it did. It's the whole BS war on christmas mentality, IMO. Either way, there's another view of what happened.

    Big difference between teaching a bunch of ignorant twits not to beat up Muslim kids and teaching kids to be Muslim. No?
