Religious schools and discrimination : Comments

By Kuranda Seyit, published 23/10/2018

However, the call by Sheikh Taj Aldin Hilali, a Sydney based cleric, that independent Islamic schools should not allow homosexual teachers to work in their schools has opened up a can of worms.

We are not moving towards an inclusive society. We are becoming more divided every day by the extreme Leftists, who are pulling the strings even though they are not in direct power. The faux-Right, which is supposed to be running things, is doing their bidding because they are cowards. People like Kuranda Seyit, who is a council member of the Sydney Peace Foundation, Director of the Forum on Australia's Islamic Relations (FAIR) and an independent documentary film maker, want you to believe their propaganda because they are the bad guys trying direct our attention away from what they are doing to Western society.

Don't believe a thing they say!

I honestly cannot understand why any gay person would chose to work in any workplace that didnít like homosexuality. Certainly there is no shortage of teaching jobs so why chose an institution where you donít feel welcome?
I have always said that you can legislate equality but you can never legislate acceptance and people need to understand that not everyone feels the same about issues so itís best to just go with the flow and not try and force people to accept what they cannot believe in.

Overall private schools have far less bullying than the zoo's. That is why so many unbelievers send their kids to private schools. It is the sick ideology of the state schools that result in so much bullying that should be examined. One day we will get some people out of the swamp who can look at things honestly.

Not to worry.

That political trainwreck that is the caretaker Morrison Government will probably only last to May 2019 at most http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Next_Australian_federal_election .

Then the issue of a religeous freedom to sack or block homosexual teachers will pass to a Shorten Labor Government.

If a person chooses a different sexuality than that that they were born with then we have a right to say, you are not welcome here as a teacher, imparting your possibly hedonistic immoral values on impressionable kids.

Otherwise, if don't ask don't tell? Is what is necessary to get certain stone age ignorance from enacting its particular brand of Godless prejudice against folk who dare to be born different, (via preconception choice obviously) then go with that as the lesser of two evils.

Words in allegedly holy books, penned my mere men aren't flawless or infallible, however, or not, inspired. And may simply reflect the then cultural norms and ignorance of the illiterate, superstitious society, culture or age they sprang from?

Given none can say with absolute certainty that they were dictated by God alone!

Remember, not all that long ago we all of us believed we lived on a planet at the absolute centre of a universe that revolved around us! And that we all of us can trace our ancestry back to just two humans.

And given that were true? All of humanity the product of serial incest? Or possible interspecies bestiality? [Ah say there boy, a jungle gentleman, doesn't monkey around with another monkey's monkey?]

Acceptable levity aside, why not accept the peer-reviewed science? Or if unable, then a don't ask don't tell position? After all, It's teaching that needs to be on trial here, not God-given gender specificity!

Getting some folk to accept peer-reviewed science is sometimes more difficult than conception achieved while standing in a hammock!
