I Just Can’t Believe This – Boy’s In Skirts?

Posted in America, Britain, Children, English Schools, Gays, Homosexuals, Modern World, News, Parenting, Teens with tags , , , , on 15/05/2017 by floroy1942

Boys In Skirts?

Can you imagine boys going to school in skirts? It would appear that this is the latest new trend in North London’s Highgate Private School! Its all about being ‘gender neutral’, and the school authorities have initiated the idea of allowing boys to wear skirts to school if they so desire.

Girls can already wear a grey pleated skirt or trousers but the boys are restricted to wearing trousers and have to wait until they are sixteen before even adorning themselves with earrings.

Adam Pettitt, headmaster at the school said, “This generation is really questioning [if we are] being binary in the way we look at things. He said some former pupils had complained about the changes. “They write in and say if you left children to their own devices they would grow up differently and you are promoting the wrong ideas,”

Well, I certainly agree with that for allowing boys to wear skirts would ensure they grow up to be homosexuals.

The school already allows children to request that staff address them by a name of the opposite gender, which around half a dozen have done. One boy has also been allowed to wear a dress to school. Can you imagine a boy wearing a dress to school? It is too ridiculous for words!

Its about time this gender idea was knocked on the head, for in my time boys never got the idea that they were feminine. The LGBT crowd have been given far too much freedom these days and pretty soon the world will be filled with them. As you can imagine from this blog, I don’t like homosexuals and lesbians etc. I remember well when I was in Amsterdam seeing men strolling around holding hands and often kissing on the streets. It was disgusting.

I well remember when I went to a friend’s wedding in Biarritz in France. A gang of us went out after the wedding on the town, and late at night we ended up in a ‘gay’ bar. When we went inside we saw men kissing and fondling each other like crazy. It was disgusting to say the least. I kept my backside against the wall for the whole time we were in there.

There are many people these days who accept readily the idea of ‘gays’ but I am afraid I do not. Many people turn up at ‘gay parades’ to watch men dancing around practically naked, in fact some of them are naked.

I have to say that the world is going crazy these days and I am glad I am old, for I do not wish to live in a society that is flooded with these strange men and women.

Brexit – The Aftermath

Posted in America, Benefits, Britain, English Schools, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, News, Police, Teens with tags , , , , on 25/06/2016 by floroy1942

Criticism is being hurled about by all and sundry after the result of the Brexit vote was made known, and I for one think that people should calm down and wait and see what develops.

Its’s no good going off at half-cock just because everyone did not agree with your vote. I agree, the results were close but those who voted to remain must take a step back and see what comes out of this referendum.

London

London – The City

In London it seems that half a million people have demanded a rerun of the vote because it did not go their way, but why should we? Some may be afraid for their jobs in The City, but I doubt very much that thousands of jobs will be lost because banks and international companies are going to move out of the U.K., for that would be very very expensive, and they will lose all of their experienced staff.

No-one has any idea of the agreements that will be made with the E.U. after the babble has died down. Negotiations will be entered into in the coming months, and it would seem to me that most companies will stay right where they are if the right agreements are obtained. All this panic may well be for nothing.

European Union

European Union

As to the ludicrous idea of London declaring ‘independence’ from the rest of the country, that is the most stupid thing I have heard in years. Which idiot came up with that idea? Do the people of London honestly believe that it can still be a part of the European Union while the rest of the country is not! Come on people! Get a grip and start thinking sensibly!

There can be little doubt that once the initial furor has died down and sensible minds begin negotiating with the rest of the E.U., there will be agreements made that will satisfy all sides. This is just as much in the interests of E.U. countries as it is for Britain. There is no point in going off half-cocked.

I am well aware of the ‘hateful’ rhetoric that is coming from some E.U. politicians at the result, but that is nothing more than reaction to the fact they lost. Later, in proper negotiations cooler heads will rule.

From reading news items it seems that most of our young people voted to stay in, but they are not as wise yet as the old folks. Many of us older folks can look forward to what will happen with the European Union, we don’t just think of the ‘here and now’.

Un-elected Leaders

Un-elected Leaders

What most of the younger members of our society do not realize is that we are heading for the ‘United States of Europe’ under the complete control of those idiots in Brussels. Eventually our own government will be put out of a job and we will all be following dictates from Brussels. Don’t forget that not one of our E.U. leaders has actually been voted into office by the populace.

BananasAs a young person would you really want to dictate to all of Europe that bananas must be a certain shape and size, and that cabbages must be round. These are to give you an idea of the stupid rules that Brussels tried to pass on to Europe some time back. Why is the shape of bananas and cabbages so important, answer me that! These are but two examples of what those fools in Brussels have done, so do you think they will be capable of running 28 countries with different traditions and way of life? If we stayed in this is what we would be heading for, the country being run by idiots who have no idea of British values.

As a further example, look what the Human Rights fools have done to our Justice system. Nowadays, you can murder someone and get no more than three or four years in prison, despite being sentenced to twenty or thirty years in the courts.

Our prisons are full to overflowing with foreign criminals, mostly Muslim, yet we can’t deport them. Hell! We can’t even deport those who came into the country illegally.

We have no control over immigrants coming into the country, despite what Cameron said about restricting entry to 100,000 a year. They are still flooding in, and what are they looking for? Benefits!

Old Age Pensioner In The Cold

Old Age Pensioner In The Cold

Our own old people have to choose between eating and staying warm in the winter because we cannot afford to help them. Sadly, many of them die in loneliness. In the meantime immigrants are taking home huge sums of tax payers money because they have ten children, a father, mother, uncle, aunt and grandparents to feed. Please don’t try to convince me that this is the right thing to do! We should be taking care of our own first, not molly coddling those who come here for benefits.

What about all the changes that Muslim immigrants are making to the fabric of this nation. In some areas our children cannot get a decent education because more than half of the class only speak Arabic and our youngsters are the ones that suffer the consequences. In Bradford, Birmingham and many other cities, the Muslims have tried to take over our schools and ignore the plight of English children who are there to learn.

They form ghettos in our cities and towns where you hear nothing but Arabic. They make no attempt whatsoever to learn the language of this country or respect our way of life.

We have to put up with Muslim demonstrators on the streets of our cities and towns carrying placards that ‘Islam Will Rule The World” or “Death To The Infidels”. Is this what all those who deny Brexit want, for it will flourish until we cannot stop it.

On top of that we have Muslims raping women and small children at will because the Qu’ran says they can. They sell our young children into sex slavery whenever they please and the police do nothing because they have been told “We should not upset the Muslims”! If you demonstrate on the streets anywhere against immigration you will immediately be arrested and charged, but if the Muslims do it they are given a police escort!!!

There can be little doubt that we must get back control of our country, and Brexit is the only way to do it. So before you start demonstrating and signing petitions think about these few points I have mentioned.

Raising A Generation Of Whimps!

Cheltenham Ladies' College

Cheltenham Ladies’ College

I could hardly believe what I was reading when a news report said that Cheltenham Ladies’ College, a girls school in Cheltenham, was considering dropping homework for students over the next five years because it was causing them depression. Instead they would get weekly meditation classes.

I have always maintained that if you pay proper attention in school, instead of, for example, writing text messages under the desk, you will learn all you need to learn. But, I do have to say that teachers today leave a lot to be desired in their methods. In my day, if you didn’t understand something you held up your hand and the teacher would explain until it was as clear as glass. Nowadays, many teachers don’t take the time to explain things to those pupils who don’t fully understand, and that is presuming they know enough about their subject to be able to.

Sir Anthony Seldon, Headmaster At Wellington College In Berkshire

Sir Anthony Seldon, Headmaster At Wellington College In Berkshire

Sir Anthony Seldon, headmaster at Wellington College in Berkshire, said in an interview that “mental health is a massive problem in Britain in schools and universities”. He said it was good the school was doing something about the problem, but doubted if banishing homework was the answer. He went on, “Life is stressful. Adult life is stressful, so unless we teach them to cope with that we’re not going to prepare them to cope in the adult world. That’s what schools are about – helping children learn to become adults, to learn to take responsibility themselves, rather than pampering young people.” Oh how right you are Sir!

Many people today are unable to handle even a little stress, and that is mostly due to their upbringing, or more likely, lack of it. Most children today are spoiled rotten by their parents, but when they get introduced to life’s problems they have no clue on how to handle it, and before anyone mentions it, I know there are exceptions, but the majority of youth can’t handle real life when they grow up because they have not been shown how to.

Depression

Depression

The main problem with kids today is that they get everything handed to them on a plate. When they cannot get what they want, like a laptop or the latest mobile phone they sulk and get depressed. Most often they cry  “All my friends have one. Why can’t I?” This philosophy has many drawbacks, for firstly it does not teach them the value of anything, and secondly can cause the deep depression that so often leads to drugs, and/or alcohol abuse.

Headteacher Eve Jardine-Young of the Cheltenham School said the average age at which depression was first diagnosed had fallen from 29 in the 1960s to 15-and-a-half early this century. She said, “What we’ve been reflecting on a lot in the last few years are the big national trends and international trends in the worsening states of adolescent mental health. We’ve created this epidemic of anxiety for ourselves as a society, and if our obligation as educators is to try to the best of our ability to set young people up as best we can for whatever the future may hold, then to ignore this whole area or to trivialize it is really irresponsible.”

This Is No Way To Escape Facing Real Life

Binge-Drinking – This Is No Way To Escape Facing Real Life

Personally, I doubt that stopping homework is going to cure the problem, for all it will do is make these youngsters less likely to use their brains and increase their desire for ‘an easy life’. Young people today have no idea whatsoever of what they will have to face when they eventually leave school and have to work for a living.

This is one reason for the drug epidemic we have today. Instead of having the mental strength to face what life throws at us they turn to the only escape they know, drugs, or in many other cases, alcohol. Go through many towns and cities in Britain on a Friday or Saturday night, and you will find many teens comatose on the pavement or getting into a fight on the streets. For them alcohol is an escape from the problems of living in today’s society, but in the long term it does not help.

Teachers Need To Interact More With Their Pupils

Teachers Need To Interact More With Their Pupils

As a parent it is your responsibility to educate your children in such a way that they can understand that life does not hand them everything they wish for. Naturally the schools are part of this process, for children need to know that they must work hard to get what they want, and it begins with a good education. Teachers must be able to spot those having trouble with the lesson material and do all they can to make them understand.

If the children/teenagers are getting depressed because they cannot handle homework then the answer is not to stop it, but to make them understand that it is an essential part of their education. It will make them think, and use their brains to come up with the correct answers.

Life As A Teen Is One Big Party - But Wait Until The Crunch Comes!

Life As A Teen Is One Big Party – But Wait Until The Crunch Comes!

If I went to work and was feeling somewhat depressed I would not expect my boss to say, “It’s OK Roy. Take a couple of days off until you feel better!” Ha! Fat chance of that happening. Life today is full of pitfalls and traps that can cause people to feel insecure, but you must have the mental strength to overcome these problems and move on. Something today’s generation seems to be lacking.

The sad thing is, as we move forward in time and these youngsters have children of their own, the problem will get even worse because they will have no idea on how to handle such a situation with their own children because their parents let them down.

It's Time For Parents To Take An Active Interest In Their Children

It’s Time For Parents To Take An Active Interest In Their Children

If you wish to bring a new life into the world then you must be prepared to guide them as they grow up, and teach them that life is not the proverbial ‘bowl of cherries’ by preparing them for the hardships of becoming an adult. Teach them to recognize right from wrong, teach them that to get anywhere in today’s world you must have knowledge and be ready to work hard. Most of all, teach them that drugs and alcohol are not an escape from life’s problems.

I think that unless something drastic is done to educate our children in the correct way, and prepare them properly for adulthood, we are headed for major problems in the future. May God help us all.

A Muslim’s View Of Muslims – And It Explains A Lot!

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Iran, Israel, Modern World, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion with tags , , , , on 25/05/2015 by floroy1942

I came across this in my e-mail folder yesterday and thought to pass it on because it explains an awful lot about Muslims and their behaviour. It sheds light on why they are so close-minded, and why they behave the way they do. After reading this it was like someone switched on a light when you try to understand the Muslim mind. In his comparisons the writer opens up a whole host of knowledge that I certainly did not know, and I suspect that you will not either.

It was written by Farrukh Saleem PhD who is a Muslim political scientist and economic theorist, financial analyst, writer and television personality. He was born in Pakistan and educated in The United States, and after investing in the New York Stock Exchange he began writing for various newspapers before returning to Pakistan where he became a writer for such newspapers as The News International, Pakistan’s largest English-language daily newspaper among others.

He has often written about the Jews and Israel, and in this recent article, published in the Muslim Times in 2013, Saleem advocates directing a friendly foreign policy towards Israel. When he draws comparisons between Muslims and Jews, he explains that the main Muslim problem is a failure to pass on knowledge:

Why are Jews so powerful? There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas, five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa. For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Century’, was a Jew. Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew. So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Albert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis. Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases. Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission. Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology. Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy. Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill. George Wald won a Nobel for our understanding of the human eye. Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology. Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion Muslims (other than Peace Prizes for Arafat). Why are Jews so powerful? Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip. Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor; Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable; Charles Adler, traffic lights; Benno Strauss, stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile Berliner, telephone microphone; Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi’s Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck’s), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts). Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American Secretary of State), Alan Greenspan (Fed. Chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman (US Senator), Madeleine Albright (American Secretary of State), Casper Weinberger (American Secretary of Defence), Maxim Litvinov (USSR Foreign Minister), David Marshal ( Singapore’s First Chief Minister), Issac Isaacs (Governor-General of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Goldwater (US Senator), Jorge Sampaio (President of Portugal), John Deutsch (CIA Director), Herb Gray (Canadian Deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British Home Secretary), Bruno Kreisky (Chancellor of Austria ) and Robert Rubin (American Secretary of Treasury).

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald (editor-in-chief of Time Magazine), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington Post), Joseph Lelyveld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max Frankel (New York Times).

The most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the world is George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4 billion most of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities around the world. Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven gold medals; Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medallist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker (Tennis) are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are all Jewish?

As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The Thief of Baghdad ) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

So, why are Jews so powerful? Answer : EDUCATION

Why are Muslims so powerless? There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet: one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million in Europe and six million in the Americas. Every fifth human being is a Muslim; for every single Hindu there are two Muslims, for every Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims.

Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless? Here is why: There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around 500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407. In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’, and intriguingly, not one university from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian-majority states have a literacy rate of 100 per cent. A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with a literacy rate of 100 per cent. Some 98 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world had completed primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same. Around 40 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world attended university while no more than two per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same. Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million. In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs. (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million). Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP. Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge!

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per million are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a society. In Pakistan, there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis while the same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK, the number of book titles per million stands at 2,000 while the same in Egypt is 20. Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports are an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan’s export of high technology products as a percentage of total exports stands at one per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent; Kuwait, Morocco, and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent, while Singapore is at 58 per cent. Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless.? …..Because we aren’t producing knowledge,…..Because we aren’t diffusing knowledge.,…..Because we aren’t applying knowledge. And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies .

Interestingly, the combined annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2 trillion. America, just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12 trillion; China $8 trillion, Japan $3.8 trillion and Germany $2.4 trillion (purchasing power parity basis). Oil rich Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion; Spain alone produces goods and services worth over $1 trillion, Catholic Poland $489 billion and Buddhist Thailand $545 billion. ….. (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP is fast declining). So, why are Muslims so powerless? Answer: Lack of education. All we do is shout to Allah the whole day! And blame everyone else for our multiple failures!

I guess that when you look at it this way, it does explain a lot of the problems with the Muslim world. Having viewed the points put forward by Farrukh Saleem I can find no fault with his logic. He is obviously a learned man who understands the Muslim world very well and everything he puts forward makes sense. No race can advance in today’s world without a certain level of education. A fact that is becoming more obvious as time goes by, and we see the changes that are being made in our daily lives with more and more technology.

Ferguson Aftermath

Posted in America, England, Equality, Justice, News, Police Complaints, Relationships, Teen Violence, Theft, USA with tags , , , on 06/01/2015 by floroy1942

Finally the fury following the police shooting of an unarmed black thief in Ferguson and the following deaths of unarmed blacks in Utah and New York have died down, and life is for the most part returning to normal. But since those events some interesting facts have come to light.

Some NYPD Officers Turn Their Back As The Mayor Speaks.

Some NYPD Officers Turn Their Back As The Mayor Speaks.

Chief among them was the ‘revenge’ killing of two New York police officers as they sat in their car. During one of the funerals last weekend it was notable that many of the police officers turned their back on the Mayor as he was giving his address to the gathered mourners.

Black Gang

Black Gang

This entire episode of the last five months has brought to the surface the deep antagonism between the black population of America and its white citizens. For their part the black population, especially in the more deprived areas, seem to be of the opinion that life owes them something, and this also true of the Hispanic populations as well.

For these people the idea of getting a good education and a job are foreign because they think there are easier ways of making a living, and that usually involves crime. Just take a look at the following:

2010 American Crime Statistics

2010/12 American Crime Statistics

When you read the above statistics it sheds light on one of the reasons why there is so much distrust of blacks in America, because they account for by far the largest proportion of crime, be it drugs, rape, robbery or murder.

They Did It - Why Can't You!

They Did It – Why Can’t You!

What these people need to learn is that if you want to make something of your life you have to work at it, i.e. integrate, get an education and then a job. Always try to get higher up the ladder by improving, rather than sit on your heels and expect someone to give you everything you need. The important thing to remember is that you have to do it yourself, for there are no ‘free rides’ in today’s society.

To a great extent a lot of the blame must fall on the parents, because they are the guiding light for any child growing up. If they have the will to push their children to make something of themselves despite their own failures, we would see more integration between the different communities in America. The following picture tells a lot about the attitude of parents to their children and crime:

A Black Parents View Of Black Crime

A Black Parents View Of Black Crime

From the looks of the placard held by this father, robbing a store is part of everyday life and I guess for some that’s true. It is a police officers sworn duty to uphold the law, so what do these people think he should do when a black teenager runs out of a shop with a gun in his hand after robbing the place? The teenager is certainly not going to put his gun down and allow the police officer to arrest him. So the inevitable happens.

Corner Stone Of A Strong Country

Intergration – Corner Stone Of A Strong Country

If the black population decided together to leave the ghetto’s and fully integrate with the white population who knows what could be achieved. It is certain that to begin with the road would be difficult for their will still be the basic distrust among the white citizens for the black man, but by hard work and advancement this could eventually be overcome.

If the black population really want to integrate there is no real reason why America should not have a true black or Hispanic President at sometime in the future, if that person has made the effort to improve him/herself sufficiently.

All Americans need to understand that to move forward together, they have to work together, for it is only in this way that the country can fully prosper.

Race hatred is a bad thing, but like it or not, we all share the same planet and must learn to live with one another.

The Quagmire Of Our Education System

Posted in Britain, Child Discipline, Children, Christianity, England, English Schools, Immigrants, News, Palestine, UK with tags , , , , on 01/05/2014 by floroy1942

For centuries the British education system has been faith based, which is not surprising in a Christian country, but is it time to put an end to this system? In years gone by we were all Christians and the idea of educating our children in this way was perfectly acceptable. Now however, times have changed for the worse and we are a collection of different faiths living under the same roof.

British Christian School

British Christian School

After Tony Blair’s savage destruction of everything British with his ‘open door’ immigration policy, we have degenerated into a mix of many religions but still hang on to Christian schools in our education system.

By far the biggest problem is that of Muslim immigrants who do not want to send their children to a Christian school, and when you consider it carefully, this is perfectly understandable. Parents do not want their children educated within a system that upholds the Christian religion anymore than a Christian family wants to send their offspring to a Muslim school. Another non-Christian section among us is the Hindu people, which in fact prompted this post.

Religious Affiliation In Britain

Plans are afoot to build the first all-Hindu secondary modern school in England, which if it goes ahead, will be built in Harrow. From this initial act I can see the country will soon be infested with schools based on many different faiths. The big question is, should we accept this? Is there not a better way?

It is widespread knowledge that in towns and cities like Birmingham, Manchester and Bradford, the Muslims are making an underhand effort to take over Christian schools. They are doing this by blackening the reputation of head teachers and staff in order to install their own after their dismissal. They are then turning them into places of learning based on the Islamic faith. Should this succeed, Christian children will be educated on Muslim principles which are far removed from those of Christians. It must be said that no such allegations have been made against any other faith.

Muslim Take-Over Of British Schools

Muslim Take-Over Of British Schools

The country is littered with Islamic schools in towns and cities with a high percentage of Muslim residents. To be fair, you have to admit that Muslim children have a right to be educated in the Islamic tradition despite what you think of the religion itself. The same goes for Hindu’s and any other popular faith.

Muslim Faith School

Muslim Faith School

This dilemma is causing chaos within the education system as a whole despite the fact that all cultures are expected to integrate into the British way of life when they come here. Many will say “This is Britain and you either adapt or you should leave” but that is just not happening. Many immigrants have a good life here and will never return to their homeland. For many their existence here is paid for by the British tax payer so why should they.

There are several ways to solve this problem. The government can say that all children take what is on offer and leave it at that, we can segregate the different religions and allow different faith schools as with the Hindu proposal to spring up all over the country, or we can change the education system itself to accommodate the different religions by making it non-religious. Whichever way it goes it will be expensive and require huge reorganization.

Falling Church Attendance

Falling Church Attendance

Many people in Britain today claim to be either agnostic or atheist which is a shame, for to have no religion at all means there are no bounds set to behavior. Whether you believe in God or not, to be raised following the Christian faith teaches us all how to behave in society, to have respect for others, basic honesty and to be compassionate with those less fortunate. With the decline of Christian values in our society today we have to a great extent become selfish and greedy with little or no respect for anything or anyone. This is particularly noticeable today in the younger generations.

For this reason, the idea of having schools founded on Christian principles in the past has been a good thing. However, since the religious lessons have been eradicated from the curriculum generations have floundered, for they have not been taught the fundamental basics of being a good person, least of all by their parents.

Tony Blair - Britain's Version Of Satan!

Tony Blair – Britain’s Version Of Satan!

Lionel Blair’s multi-cultural Britain has not turned out to be the ‘dream society’ he may have thought it would be, but there again, the cynics among us are convinced he only did it in an attempt to keep Labour at the helm of the country, counting on the immigrant vote at election time. Whatever his reason, the country is in the mire up to its chin (and I kept that clean) and to be honest there seems little chance of the old Britain ever returning.

Perhaps it might be necessary for representatives of the major religions in the country to sit around the table and set a system of education that does not favour one or the other, but still teaches children what is required i.e maths, English (they all live in England) science, geography etc.. It is time we adapt to what we have, and someone soon is going to have to make the tough decisions before we sink totally in the quagmire.

An American’s View Of America – An Astonishing Eye-opener!

We are often hearing from American’s that they belong to the greatest country on Earth, and from their point of view that may be true, but to hear an American tell the opposite is something you will hear seldom.

Jeff Daniels - A Man With A View.

Jeff Daniels – A Man With A View.

I received the following clip through the e-mail a week ago and thought it might interest a few people. The remarks were made by actor, musician and playwright Jeff Daniels at a college seminar I believe.

When the panel was asked by a student if they thought America was the greatest nation on Earth, his reply resulted in a stunned silence from not only the audience, but also the other two panel members, for several minutes while they stared at him with open mouths.

It is beyond doubt worth watching even just for the audience reaction to what he said. Whether you agree with him or not I leave up to you:

Recent information suggests this is a scene from a TV series called ‘The Newsroom’ starring Jeff Daniels.  I have no way of verifying this, but either way, it does open up the possibility for wide-ranging discussion and you may make up your own mind on his views.
