Anglican School Drops Christian Hymns
Their excuse is 75% of their students are Muslim. Do you think it occurred to ANYONE on the board or vestry to question why they were not attracting Christian students?
Hymns have been dropped from assemblies at a Church of England school which has also introduced separate prayer rooms for girls and boys to cater to its mostly Muslim students.
Daily assemblies at Slough and Eton Church of England Business and Enterprise College, where 75 per cent of pupils are Muslim, are not based specifically on the Bible, but may make reference to it alongside other religious texts.
All of the the meat served at the secondary school, which has over 1,000 pupils aged between 11 and 19, is halal.
Unfortunately, this situation is not unique to CoE schools. I am told by sources I consider very reliable that Episcopal High in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, no longer makes chapel attendance mandatory. A local RC school allows the six graders to sing the 12 Yats of Christmas up to and including the six pack of Dixie Beer on the sixth day. In response to my question as to when Jesus would be honored at the Christmas play, I was told that if I wanted that “Christian” stuff, it was done on Friday at the church.
Parents who send their children to an alleged Christian school that fails to be Christian might as well donate their money to the local wishing well. They should also have zero expectation their children are being taught Christian principles or anything whatsoever about God, Jesus or the Bible.
Simply put - when the money becomes more important than the message, the doors need to close - whether you are closing the doors to the church parish or its school.
