| In NOT so great britain : Stepfather called “racist” for complaining about stepdaughter’s assignment to write about converting to Islam

|Jihad Watch : Would any British school have given an assignment to write about
converting to Christianity? Of course not. If it had done so, Muslim
students, their parents, and Islamic groups would be protesting
vociferously, and the school would be apologizing. But in this case, it
is the stepfather who is vilified for complaining. And so the
Islamization of Britain gallops forward.
“‘I’ve been called a racist and a bigot’: Stepfather explains why he
complained when school asked his girl, 12, to write a letter for
homework about becoming a Muslim,” by Lara Keay, Mailonline, October 2, 2018:
A stepfather who slammed his 12-year-old’s
school for making her write a letter about ‘converting to Islam’ has
been called a ‘racist bigot’ and is terrified of violent repercussions.
Mark McLachlan, 43, complained to Kepier
School in Houghton-le-Spring, Sunderland when he found the homework task
in his stepdaughter’s planner.
He refused to let her finish the ‘letter
to my family about converting to Islam’, claiming it was ‘brainwashing’
her about the religion and did not see what it would achieve.
But since posting about it on social media he says he has received a lot of abuse.
He told MailOnline: ‘My wife and I are terrified of the repercussions.
‘Any time anybody says anything negative about Islam they are torn to shreds.
‘I’ve been called a racist and a bigot, but I’m just terrified for my children and for the way this country is going.
‘In 50 years time I can see Britain
becoming an Islamic state and my children and grandchildren are still
going to be alive – I don’t want them wearing a niqab.’
Mr McLachlan, who has been with the
12-year-old’s mother for five years, said he was particularly outraged
by the task because he thinks she is being given a ‘false representation
He added: ‘She was told to google ‘Why
should I convert to Islam’, but if she had researched both sides and
googled ‘Why shouldn’t I convert to Islam’ she wouldn’t have been able
‘I’ve done it and the stuff that comes up is horrific.
‘My stepdaughter is coming home talking about the Prophet Muhammad and halal meat saying Islam is the religion of peace.
‘But if she watched the news and knew
about all the atrocities Islam has caused all over the world, she would
know it isn’t the religion of peace at all.’
The stepfather, who also has a daughter,
stressed he has ‘nothing but respect’ for the deputy head of Kepier
School, who was ‘completely understanding of his concerns.
He told MailOnline the teacher has agreed to hold a meeting to review the task and address his concerns.
Nicola Cooper, the school’s principal,
said: ‘At Kepier we feel it is very important to introduce our learners
to all faiths and cultures and we do this throughout the academic year.
‘For example, next week we will be celebrating all faiths during National Inter Faith Week.
‘We welcomed Mr McLachlan into school earlier this week and were happy to explain to him how we explore all faiths and cultures.
‘Our Culture and Wellbeing programme of
study is in line with the National Curriculum and we believe it provides
the basis for a broad, balanced and engaging introduction to the areas
typically taught in RE and PSHCE.’
