Four more Birmingham primary schools halt equality lessons after Muslim parents complained they were promoting homosexuality

Leigh Trust has suspended its No Outsiders programme from schools
The lessons discuss issues surrounding the Equalities Act such as gender rights
Lessons were suspended after protests were held outside some of the schools  

Four more Birmingham primary schools have halted equality lessons after Muslim parents complained they were promoting homosexuality.
Leigh Trust has suspended its No Outsiders programme until an agreement with parents can be reached.
A number of schools across the Midlands have been involved in the sessions which discuss various issues surrounding the Equalities Act such as gender rights.
Earlier this month Parkfield Community School in Birmingham suspended the lessons after protests were held outside the school.

Humanists UK’s response to terrorist attack in New Zealand

March 15th, 2019
Humanists UK has issued a statement in response to the terrorist attack which occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand today.
Humanists UK Chief Executive Andrew Copson said: ‘This is an atrocity of heartbreaking proportions for a free and peaceful country like New Zealand. Innocent people going about their everyday lives have been targeted. As the Humanist Society of New Zealand said this morning, our thoughts are with them and all the families and communities affected by this terrible crime

‘White nationalism is a major threat to our peace and freedom. Its adherents victimise and murder minorities like Jews and Muslims and they vilify and kill humanists and progressives, their ideological opponents, like the late Jo Cox MP or the young social democrats of Norway. Their numbers are growing across the western world and those of us who oppose their worldview must stand together and not be separated by the dynamo of hate.’

‘Alarming’: Birmingham trust with five schools also suspends LGBT lessons

March 19th, 2019
A Birmingham trust which runs five schools has said it will stop teaching lessons about LGBT acceptance to students following mounting pressure by parents, according to a new BBC report released today.
The BBC exclusive report states that Leigh Trust, which runs five schools, said it was halting the lessons until an agreement with parents is reached, or at least after Ramadan in May. Leigh Trust teaches the ‘No Outsiders programme’ at the Leigh Primary School, Alston Primary School, Marlborough Junior School, Marlborough Infants School, and Wyndcliff Primary School.
One of the campaigners against the LGBT lessons is quoted saying, ‘Morally we do not accept homosexuality as a valid sexual relationship to have.’ The BBC report says campaigners claim the classes are inappropriate for young children and the schools’ LGBT message contradicts Islam.
Humanists UK, which campaigns for inclusive relationships and sex education (RSE) in schools, including promoting tolerance and respect for LGBT people as part of RSE, has described today’s reported developments as an ‘extremely alarming trend’ and urged the Department for Education to intervene to ensure the classes are reinstated.
The reported move by Leigh Trust comes after a separate Birmingham school earlier this month announced it was suspending its ‘No Outsiders’ programme’ until consultation with parents was complete. Parents at Parkfield School protested over the programme, deemed by Ofsted as age-appropriate, which teaches students that ‘families look different’ and it also aims to tackle homophobia in schools.
Humanists UK Director of Public Affairs and Policy Richy Thompson said: ‘It is very alarming to hear reports that a trust responsible for five more schools has also decided to stop teaching LGBT lessons due to protests from parents who believe it is against their religious beliefs.
‘Schools have an important role to educate students about all types of relationships and that includes teaching respect and tolerance for LGBT people. They have a duty to protect the wellbeing of all of their students including LGBT students who are at higher risk of bullying without such education. We urge the Department for Education to take a strong stand and support these schools in reinstating LGBT lessons back into the classrooms.’
Ofsted Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman has consistently said that students must learn about same-sex relationships in schools regardless of religious beliefs.
Earlier this month the UK Government announced its compulsory RSE curriculum that must be taught in all English schools but the new law and guidance do not come into force until September 2019.

Antisemitism amongst fellow atheists. 

Daniel, I've also found antisemitism amongst certain Atheists there's a couple of guys on Google + they confuse the honest criticism of Israel with attacks on Jews and Holocaust denial.
In the UK labour party for which I've been a life long supporter many members loath to criticise the many Muslim members even though they are virulent anti semites. They also don't understand that Islamists are the antithesis of liberal and socialist ideas.
