A little light Islamist propaganda to liven up your Sunday

October 4th, 2009

I’ve just been supervising my nine-year old daughter’s home work for the week. She attends a Church of England Primary School. Here is the text she was set:

“Abdul left his friend’s house. He had had a fun afternoon. He took the route home. He was whistling softly. He scuffed his feet in the dry leaves. He pretended to dribble a football up the pitch. He passed a derelict church.”

Is it just me or is there something seriously wrong with the subliminal messages being sent out here?

Why couldn’t the authors have ticked the diversity and equality boxes by a passage like this (which is also representative of today’s Britain):He [Abdul] passed a vibrant, modern church – with a congregation numbered in the thousands – of largely trimly-dressed Afro-Caribbean worshippers. He felt a check in his spirit as he contrasted his own aimless meanderings with the overflow of joyous harmony from the choir …

This is perfectly true if you see education as a means of indoctrination of the young as opposed to errrrrr actually educating them.

Youngsters I meet see through this dross and roll their eyes: global warming (which features on just about every syllabus out there – science, English, maths, RE, etc., etc), healthy eating, the rubbishing of British history, the diversity-compliant naming of participants in exam questions: “Bobby, Zeinab, Ndabaningi and Chan are investigating the effect of temperature on the rate of a chemical reaction”.

    It promotes the usual stuff – White kids are racist violent scum, all others milk and honey.
