Christian school 'downgraded for failing to invite an imam to lead assembly'

Imagine forcing a Christ-centered school to have a Muslim Imam lead a school assembly? Good grief. That's exactly what has happened in merry old England, where the school has been given a down-mark for failing to promote "tolerance" as part of the new British Values, and many other schools will no doubt suffer the same fate:

A successful Christian school has been warned it is to be downgraded by inspectors and could even face closure after failing to invite a leader from another religion, such as an imam, to lead assemblies, it is claimed.

The small independent school in the Home Counties was told it is in breach of new rules intended to promote “British values” such as individual liberty and tolerance in the wake of the Trojan Horse scandal, involving infiltration by hard-line Muslim groups in Birmingham.

Details of the case are disclosed in a letter to the Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, from the Christian Institute, which is providing legal support to the school.

The group warned that the new rules intended to combat extremism are already having “disturbing consequences” for religious schools and forcing Ofsted inspectors to act in a way which undermines their ethos.
