Crowning Moments in Britain’s One-Sided Culture War

Christians are being killed in tens of thousands in the Islamic World and Africa. A Christian woman in Pakistan is sentenced to be hanged for drinking from a Muslim cup. An official who tries to save her is murdered by his own bodyguard, who becomes a popular hero, and Jewish babies are murdered by more Islamic heroes in Jerusalem.

The Church of England, meanwhile, devotes its energies to attacking the British Education Secretary for plans to teach “British values” in schools, calling them potentially “dangerous, divisive and undemocratic.”

@coldjoint,
Nigel Genders, Chief Education Officer, Church of England wrote:
We wholeheartedly support the idea of schools being required to promote the values of tolerance and respect for those coming at things from a different perspective. However, ‘British Values’ cannot be allowed to become a test or an assessment of whether somebody in a community is ‘safe’ or ‘loyal’. Indeed, the nature of ‘British values’ requires a much deeper public conversation around the country than has been possible over the summer. As church schools - a major stakeholder in the system – we need to find a way to ensure that the lived experience of the children and families in our schools is one that helps to build a stronger sense of the way in which shared values create stronger communities.

The ways we, as communities and a nation, develop the language and practices of equality, diversity, community and the individual have changed rapidly in recent years and we need to build confidence and coherence in the wake of changes that have been unsettling for many and remain in many ways unresolved.

But we won’t create that confidence by simply policing it through an ever increasing inspection regime, we’ll do it by ensuring that our whole vision for education is one focused on the formation of character for the transformation of the world.
The extremism thrives when religion is banished to dark corners:
* People feel alienated and rejected
* The public becomes suspicious
* A culture of fear and intimidation takes over

But much more importantly, if we reject all forms of religion from our schools, we are failing to prepare young people for the realities of life in a modern and globalised world.
Church schools are not, and never have been, about indoctrination or recruitment.
It would be easy to get the impression from coverage in the media, that this is some new initiative by the church to be involved in education, but of course the reality is that the Church of England started mass education more 200 years ago, by providing schools across the land, especially for the poor and disadvantaged, some 50 years before the state joined in.

And the public has great confidence in what Church of England schools provide. Parents know what they want for their children and they recognize, in the rounded, broad education that our schools provide, something special and attractive.

@Walter Hinteler,
To get things in the correct light: last week, Ofsted downgraded 23 schools because they failed to prepare pupils for "life in Britain" (aka teaching "British values") = they didn't give access to a "broad and balanced" curriculum, failed to promote understanding of various faiths or "tolerance of communities different to their own", did "not go far enough in making pupils aware of the rich diversity of life in modern Britain" .

The 11 schools "not preparing pupils for life in Britain today" ("British culture") were made up of three faith schools – one Roman Catholic, one Anglican and one Jewish – alongside eight community schools.

Ofsted backed away from "British values" claims for the Catholic St Benedict’s school in Bury St Edmunds in a revised report in mid-November.

The correct light is a cultural suicide. Germany and France are on the same path.

Couldyou extend your response a bid? Do you think the Ofsted's reports aren't correct?

How do you compare a single school system like in France with 16 different in Germany? To what German state(s) exactly are referring here as being "on the same path"?

@Walter Hinteler,
Do you see the title of the thread? The schools are just one part of the appeasement that will not work and doom these so far free countries.

That is no excuse but the report your quote from the conservative U.S. monthly magazine referred at.

@Walter Hinteler,
Another example Wally. Or to put it another way, someone else who sees the truth about Islam and the futility of placating it.

I bet Wally knows all about Islam. But he is probably not going to say anything disparaging. Are you stalking me Bob?

Some people might wonder how Britain blundered into the horror of the First World War and why Britain never understood the pure evil represented by Adolf Hitler and the vast majority of Germans in 1939. Moreover, some people may be asking how we can allow ourselves to sleepwalk into the next horror. For more than obvious reasons I won’t specify here what that horror is.

One reason we repeatedly stumble blindly into the mass slaughter of tens of millions and something resembling Armageddon is, of course, the cowardice and self-interest of the ruling elites. Even if they understand what is happening, they always prefer to do nothing in the hope of maintaining the status quo as long as possible so that they can carry on living their lives of luxury at our expense. In the 1930s, Winston Churchill was probably one of the few people in Britain to both understand the nature of Nazi Germany and to try to warn us what was coming our way. He was, of course, shouted down by the sneering, self-serving people in power with disastrous consequences for about 60 million people who were killed in the Second World War.

But another reason we fail to avoid the next horror is that people who have lived in an era of peace simply cannot imagine the depths of evil that their enemies will sink to in order to impose their perverted ideologies on others.

Below are links to three short video clips – a minute or two each – which start to show the true nature of our current enemies. I would advise people to not click on the links if you have a weak stomach. They demonstrate some of the pure evil we are up against, an evil that is so awful that it is beyond the imaginative powers of most of the population. And that’s partly why our leaders won’t react till it’s too late.

Like Englishmen who oppose the Americanization of their country.

I thought it was "Happy Christmas" over there.

Oh, was that Americans on 7/7 or was it Americans that beheaded a soldier in broad daylight? If you are going to make excuses for Islam please do it somewhere else.

recent example would be a sign that was discovered in a public park in London. The sign, a simple command, caused a stir when non-Muslim locals found out about it. While the presence of the sign is unconfirmed, it’s likely true, given Islam’s stance on dogs and the will of Muslims to spread Shariah law.
