The compulsory indoctrination of the LGTB lobby in schools is once again a matter of controversy, this time in the United Kingdom, where ten-year-old children were punished for rejecting that imposition.
The children just asked for permission not to participate in that event
As the British organization Christian Concern reported, the events happened on June 20 at the Heavers Farmer Primary School, in Croydon, in the south of London. The person who ordered the punishment is the principal of that school, Susan Papas, who wanted to force students to participate in a parade of Gay Pride last year, something that caused a conflict in the center, as the aforementioned organization noted. This time, the principal expelled a boy, Farrel, and a girl, Kaysey, both ten years old, for asking their teacher for permission not to participate in the “Pride LGTB” programs at the school for this course. The two children alleged religious reasons, because Farrel is Catholic and Kaysey is Evangelical Christian. The teacher rejected the request of the children alleging that this was part of the curriculum.
The principal of the school shouted, humiliated and defamed the children before their class
Christian Concern has denounced that after the class, the teacher accused Farrell of using “homophobic language”, something that the child denies. The teacher even asked the children if they want gays to die, to which Farrell and Kaysey said no. The teacher asked Farrel where he was from, and he said that he was of heritage “African Jamaican” origin. Later, the principal shouted at the two children in front of the entire class: “How dare you? You are a disappointment to the school,” she told them. Next, Susan Papas punished the children in different rooms for several hours. She asked Kaysey: “How dare you say you want to kill LGBT people?”, something the girl had not said. When the girl refused, the principal shouted again accusing her of saying it. Kaysey’s classmates have supported the girl’s version, despite which both she and Farrel were expelled for five days. The parents of both children have filed a complaint for these facts, because “it is unlawful to exclude for a non-disciplinary reason.” The parents accuse the principal of acting “in a manner contrary to the school’s Equality Duty; precisely the duty to eliminate discrimination based on religion or belief.”
They denounce that the school violated the European Convention of Human Rights
In their complaint, the parents recalled the European Convention on Human Rights, whose Article 9 states: “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.” They also allege that what is stated in Article 2 of the additional Protocol of that Convention: “In the exercise of any functions which it assumes in relation to education and to teaching, the State shall respect the right of parents to ensure such education and teaching in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions.“
In 2018 the principal wanted to force the children to attend a ‘pride’ parade
It is not the first time that the political activism of the principal Susan Papas causes a conflict in that school. On June 29, 2018, fourteen families protested against a parade of the “LGBT pride” organized in that elementary school and compulsory attendance for students, including the youngest ones. Papas had sent letters to the parents inviting them to participate in the parade. A Christian mother with a four-year-old son refused to let her son participate in that parade, and denounced the school for his ideological indoctrination. The families also pointed out the militant attitude of Attie Papas, daughter of the principal and also a teacher at the school, as well as a feminist militant. Before the protests, the parade was finally canceled, but Susan Papas insisted on including LGTB indoctrination in the school’s educational program, with the excuse of “celebrating the national pride month.”
“When bullies know that right is not on their side they resort to coercion and intimidation”
From the Christian Legal Center (CLC), which supports the families of the school who have opposed that indoctrination, they point out that “parents are beginning to see the dangers of the imposition of the new sexual and gender ideology that does not permit dissent even from innocent ten year old children.” The incident that occurred on June 20 “highlights again just how aggressive and intolerant the LGBT agenda can be,” the CLC says. “An ideology that has to resort to such heavy-handed tactics to force ten-year-old children to accept something that instinctively they do not, only highlights how life-crushing that ideology is,” it adds. “Here we see the fragility of this whole sexual agenda imposed on our children and unable to withstand the challenge of innocent ten year old children.” The CLC also points out that “when bullies know that right is not on their side they resort to coercion and intimidation. That is exactly what is being played out in Heavers Farm Primary School.”
