As we approach Christmas, it is heartening to know that Nanny never lets up on her anti Christian Crusade (there's a bit of tautology in there for you folks:)).
It seems that Nanny's friends at Sinfin Community School, Derby, have got themselves in a bit of a state over the wearing of a crucifix.
Sam Morris, 16, was sent home from Sinfin Community School after she refused to remove a gold cross on a necklace.
Nanny's rationale being that wearing a crucifix was not compulsory for Christians, so the necklace breached dress codes (which ban the wearing of jewellery).
Now that is fine to have a jewellery ban. However, as with Nanny there are always exceptions.
In this particular case other pupils are allowed to wear kirpan daggers and metal bracelets, as they are classed as religious symbols.
Ann Widdecombe MP said:
"To persecute a young girl like this for her religious beliefs,
whatever they are,
Sinfin's deputy head Howard Jones said:
"Most of our pupils understand allowing Sikhs to wear a bracelet is a compulsory part of their religion.
Christianity does not require followers to wear a specific symbols."
Tell that to the Pope!
As Derby City Council said, whilst the ban may be lawful, is it was not "desirable".
Nanny, by enforcing different rules between different groups, has ensured that instead of bringing people together she has pushed them apart.
A very foolish policy.
