Tim Dieppe discusses the statement from the UKs top counter terrorism officer that 'extremists should lose access to their children'. He explains that extremism is notoriously hard to define, and that in a recent case a Christian teacher was described as a radicalisation threat and referred to Prevent for her beliefs. There are already cases in the UK where children have been removed from their Christian parents. Children are at risk from the increasing intervention of the state and Christians need to be actively involved in influencing the law.
A headline in The Times this week read: Extremists should lose access to their children, says Scotland Yard chief. The Times was reporting on a speech made by Mark Rowley, the UKs top counterterrorism officer, at Policy Exchange this week. Mr Rowley is reported to have claimed that exposing children to extremism was equally wicked as exposing them to sexual abuse. In the speech he argued: I wonder if we need more parity between protecting children from paedophile and terrorist parents. He said that around 100 children have been removed from their parents since the start of conflicts in Syria and Iraq, but he clearly expressed that he thought more children should be safeguarded by the state.
What is extremism?
Clearly the focus of Mark Rowleys attention is terrorism. Both far-right and Islamist terrorist attacks are discussed in the speech. However, this is not his only concern. He complains in the article of cases where parents convicted of terrorist-related offences, including radicalisers, retain care of their own children. The phrase including radicalisers is very concerning. Tommy Robinson is named alongside Anjem Choudary as an example. Anjem Choudary has been convicted of supporting a terrorist organisation and is now in prison. Whilst Tommy Robinson may have said and done some things that........

Teaching your children this is going to get the gov’t to take your kids away from you and possibly even have you committed/locked up.
Eventually, laws will be made where you will lose your head over it.
Already happening in Ohio.
Oh, don’t be silly. We all trust the government to do the right thing all the time. They will do only what is necessary to protect us all.
I must have missed that one.
Was this recent? And did it have to do with Transgenderism?
No price is too great, and God will call his own. The wicked shall perish along with the devil and his minions.
Stupid pet trick!
Would not surprise me in the least.
The most extreme people I’ve ever met, and those most convinced of their own righteousness - with no basis to do so, have been socialist liberal ‘intellectuals’. I’ve met some in England, and many in the US, but they are pretty much all the same. They are pitiful in their belief in their intellectual superiority, and oblivious to their profound ignorance. It’s a real phenotype, and they aren’t rare.
They banned Michael Savage from the UK in order to bring “balance”, so that it wasn’t just Islamic hate preachers banned.
This rule will lead to Christian kids taken from UKIP and conservative families to bring “balance” because of Muslim kids taken from families that raised / supported terrorists.
And what of parents indoctrinating their children with hatred of the West and a love for the Communist State above all else (no god, no family, only the State)?
What of the radicals who deny the religion of man-made global climate change? The prophets of doom and poverty will not be mocked!!!
Does this include their mutilation in a sex change operation?
It’s over for the U.K. It’s sold it’s soul to the muzzies and has betrayed Christians.
I was watching a science/talking heads program on ABC australia in which the host suggested that teaching children under a certain age religion was akin to taking away their freedom to choose and also influencing them too much to believe whatever faith their parents hold. Even the ex christian on the panel disagreed but to have it raised shows that this is how the state wants to proceed in the future. Amongst academic circles this has been the buzz for a few years now.
That’s what I thought.
