Jesus Christ 'Should Be Downplayed In School' [MultiCulturalism's End Game!]
Telegraph(UK) ^ | November 09, 2012 | Graeme Paton

Jesus Christ 'Should Be Downplayed In School' Schools should downgrade Christianity in assemblies for a more “inclusive” multi-faith approach, say religious education advisors.

By Graeme Paton 09 Nov 2012 Teachers should no longer be expected to “accord a special status to Jesus Christ” as part of traditional acts of collective worship for pupils, it was claimed.

Guidance sent out to local committees – established to determine RE in communities across England – called for a focus on a “wide range of religious traditions” such as Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam.

By law, conventional state schools are required to stage daily acts of collective worship that are “broadly Christian” to reflect the country’s heritage. But the National Association of Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (NASACRE) said this was “not intended to be interpreted as Christian worship in any conventional sense”.

In a report, it also insisted that long-standing Government advice issued in the mid-90s which suggests most religious assemblies should focus on Jesus Christ should be discarded altogether.

Great Britain continues to circle the toilet...pray to Christ they regain their senses before it’s too late. Socialism does wonders for a civilization doesn’t it?

This is not new here at least. Christ was downgraded in US schools years ago.

From 1776-1778, Jefferson served in the Virginia House of Delegates. In 1779, he was elected governor of Virginia and was reelected in 1780. His autobiography discusses the need in the years following the Declaration of Independence to revise Virginia laws to purge them of the remnants of colonial laws. He proposed a number of revisions to the statutes while in the House and later, as governor, continued his efforts to secure passage of these reforms. The Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom proposed during Jefferson’s tenure in the Assembly and finally passed in 1786 was among his proudest accomplishments. In his autobiography, he explains:

The bill for establishing religious freedom, the principles of which had, to a certain degree, been enacted before, I had drawn in all the latitude of reason & right. It still met with opposition; but, with some mutilations in the preamble, it was finally past; and a singular proposition proved that it’s protection of opinion was meant to be universal. Where the preamble declares that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed, by inserting the word “Jesus Christ,” so that it should read “” departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion” the insertion was rejected by a great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of it’s protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mahometan, the Hindoo, and infidel of every denomination.

From “Thomas Jefferson, July 27, 1821, Autobiography Draft Fragment,” page 538

God Save the Queen

To Muslims don't be rude
Living in dhimmitude,
No offense bring.
Gospel preaching is "hate"
Christian faith second rate
The goal of servile state:
Alllah is King.

Satan and his minions still trying to exalt themselves and overthrow the Almighty King of the Universe. Demented leftists never learn so the Almighty says ‘have it your way’. Lots of gnashing of teeth will be heard on Judgement Day.

Then great britain will soon experience the kinds of mass shootings and bombings that US schools see on a yearly basis (nt to mention drugs and teen sex).

What happens when you kick God out of school? “Someone else” replaces Him. I’ll give you one guess as to “WHO” the “someone else” is.

Government schooling should be abolished because its foundation has **always** be rotten. They have **never** been religiously neutral because it is impossible for education to be religiously, politically, or culturally neutral in content or consequences. It has always been a socialist, single-payer, and compulsory entitlement from its beginning in the mid-1800s to early 1900s.

Re: God in the government schools

At their very best our nation's single-payer, compulsory, and socialist-funded K-12 schools were never more than generically lukewarm in it Protestant worldview. It's Protestant worldview had to be generic to accommodate the many Protestant sects in their communities.

What do children learn who attend schools that are generically lukewarm in their worldview? Answer: They learn to be lukewarm and generic in their faith! Is a “duh” needed here?

What does Christ do with the lukewarm? Answer: He spits them out of His mouth. ( Look it up.)

Solution: Begin the process of complete privatization and separation of school and state.
