Pray or Go To Detention

Pray or Go To DetentionHaving spent three miserable years at a Catholic school, I have a distinct aversion to religion and people who try to force it down your throat.

I strongly suspect that the methods used at Alsager High School (Stoke on Trent), to teach their pupils about religion, may well have the same result on their pupils.

An RE lesson was being given for 11/12 year olds where the teacher was explaining Islam. During this lesson the teacher reportedly told the pupils that they would then be kneeling down and praying to Allah.

What about the pupils who don't believe in God?

Why should they be forced to pray to any version of him/her, even if it "rolepaly"?

When two schoolboys refused, they were given detention.

Doubtless this will engender a very healthy feeling of tolerance and understanding towards religion.


I can only assume that the teacher had gone somewhat off his/her head.

Deputy headmaster Keith Plant seems to be as confused as everyone else:

"It's difficult to know at the moment whether this was part of the curriculum or not. I am not an RE teacher, I am an English teacher.

At the moment it is our enterprise week and many of our members of staff are away.

The particular member of staff you need to speak to isn't around. I think that it is a shame that so many parents have got in touch with the Press before coming to me.

I have spoken to the teacher and she has articulately given me her version of events, but that is all I can give you at the moment

Were God to exist, he/she would not need human superstitions and mumbo jumbo to justify his/her existence or to make him/her feel better about himself/herself.

Well done Alsager High School for succeeding in putting these pupils off religion for life!

  1. The way things are going, it will not be long before we all suffer more severe punishments than school detention if we refuse to kneel and worship 'Allah'.

    No wonder kids don't want to be in school with teachers and deputy headteachers like these two.

    Tell people about religion yes, but don't force them to take part in the rituals.

    Imagine the outcry if Muslim children were taken to another faith's place of worship and forced to take part.

  3. I am sure that most Muslims would be pretty annoyed to see Islam being forced down the kids' throats like this.

    It is a lousy way to teach any subject...hardly surprising the educashun system is falling apart, and we are producing a generation of kids who have zero interest in learning anyhting.

    If Muslim children had been forced to pray to the Christian God it would have been front page news for weeks, the BBC would go into overdrive, and the fatwahs would come thick and fast.......

    It is idolotry bow down to a god which is not your own, at least in judeo/christian beliefs.

    I like the way the deputy-head said "I think that it is a shame that so many parents have got in touch with the Press before coming to me." In other words "Had let us cover it all up".

    Ah yes, the head teacher sounds like the kind of "modern man" who will be a good role model for boys, showing them exactly how to become hand-wringing wimps. The teacher responsible was female too, one of the monstrous regiment of socialist wimmin maybe? There are lots of them in the education business, brainwashing our young, and crowding into quangos and pressure groups to eradicate all traces of masculine strength of character from the males in our society.

    Evening all....

    You are right, if you look at the TV ads and modern shows, they all send out the same kind of message.
    Men walking about with cleaning stuff or playing silly buggers while the woman sorts out the finances etc.

    I feel sorry for today's boys....How do they know what their role in life is?
    The funny thing is that, many of the femminists that were so opposed to "neandathol" man's habbits and traits, are now living their lives doing exactly the things they were so critical off a few years ago....I think of getting very drunk, fighting and smoking as prime examples.

    Night all....
