Teaching of Creation is as Bad as Radical Islam

Teaching of Creation is as Bad as Radical Islam

God Father Politics | August 19, 2014

It’s one thing for Great Britain to oppose radical Islam, but condemning the teaching that God is the Creator of all things because Islamists believe it is not the right approach. Condemning the spread of radical religious views within British schools is a good thing.

The following, delivered to Parliament late last month, is from Nicky Morgan, Education Secretary of Great Britain:

“There has been no evidence of direct radicalisation or violent extremism. But there is a clear account in the report of people in positions of influence in these schools, with a restricted and narrow interpretation of their faith, who have not promoted fundamental British values and who have failed to challenge the extremist views of others.”

What are “fundamental British values”? Does anybody know?

“The report mentioned by Morgan also denounces the teaching of creation in public schools, suggesting that anti-evolution beliefs are comparable to radical Islam. One section of the report claims that creation beliefs equate to ‘teaching belief as fact.’

“‘Staff have said that creationism has been taught as fact in science lessons and in assemblies at Park View School,’ the report says.”

One of the “fundamental values” of Great Britain, long before Islam came on the scene in the 7th century, is that human beings are created in the image of God.

“This hardly equates with the hatred-filled bigotry of Islam,” one commenter wrote. “Like it or not, British values are based on biblical teachings.”
