British schools forbid students from seeing eclipse, cite religious reasons
Allah: "An eclipse insults Islam"
Naturally the "enlightened" British educational system panders to retarded throwbacks from the 7th century.
(Vlad Tepes) - So we have come to this. Not only are British public schools making absurd allowances for Muslims, bad enough on its own and arguably illegal, but they are also forcing those Islamic norms on non-Muslim students, also bad enough and also arguably illegal.
But now British schools are protecting Islam from the scorn it so richly and rightfully deserves by not saying who in fact, was objecting to watching the eclipse, or on who’s behalf the eclipse could not b watched, despite having asked the kids to make pinhole cameras the day before for that exact purpose.
‘This is an issue about scientific matters versus religious superstition. I am outraged — is it going to be Darwin next? We will be like mid America.
‘I asked the headteacher to elaborate which religions and which cultures? But he said it had to be confidential. He referred us to the formal complaints procedure.
Both papers clearly state that which culture or religion is confidential.
So I guess it is possible that the one remaining Chinese student comes from a family that appeared by time machine from the 15th century and fears that looking at the dragon as it eats the sun may cause the earth to vanish. Or possibly the 6 or 7 vikings in the class room.
