The UN Believes Taking Your Kids To Christian Schools Is A “Human Rights Violation”
While the world is coping and dealing with radicalized Islamic terrorists who are clinging to religion as an excuse to carry out their heinous crimes, the United Nations has taken proactive measures to issue a report, calling on the UK to repeal laws that have to deal with religious worship, and what it referrers to as indoctrination.
Currently, in England and Wales, children are exposed to mandatory worship in their publicly funded schools, but may opt out of the religious practice with permission from their parents.
Southgate MP David Burrowes told the Telegraph,
“It is recognizing and respecting the Christian heritage of the country and giving people an opportunity to reflect before the beginning of the day.”
However, the UN maintains that such practice can be a violation of a child’s human rights, by limiting their freedom of thought, conscience, and religion.
The international organization is calling on legislative changes in these countries to ensure that children can opt out of religious practices, without their parent’s consent.
Burrowes went on,
“The UN should spend more time doing its main job of preventing war and genocide rather than poking its nose in other countries’ classrooms. We can respectfully put those kind of reports in the bin where they belong.”
But the United Nations is not the only entity to be attacking Christianity in schools. Earlier this year, President Barack Obama took aim at Catholic and Protestant institutions, insisting that these schools were divisive.
“If towns remain divided — if Catholics have their schools and buildings, and Protestants have theirs — if we can’t see ourselves in one another, if fear or resentment are allowed to harden, that encourages division. It discourages cooperation.”
Perhaps the United Nations and Barack Obama might work to figure out a way to defeat the real threat to the Western World, radicalized Islamic terrorism, rather than working hard to prevent “indoctrination” into the Christian faith. So far, there has not been a growing concern over Christians blowing themselves up in crowded concert halls and restaurants.
