 Boys punished with detention for refusing to pray to Allah

Two seventh-grade boys were given detention and their classmates forced to miss their scheduled refreshment break when the pair refused to kneel and pray to Allah during a religious studies class.

Outraged parents called the punishment of the boys for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration at Alsager High School near Stoke-on-Trent, UK, of how Muslims' worship Allah a breach of their human rights.

"This isn't right, it's taking things too far," parent Sharon Luinen told the London Daily Mail.

"I understand that they have to learn about other religions. I can live with that, but it is taking it a step too far to be punished because they wouldn't join in Muslim prayer. Making them pray to Allah, who isn't who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful.

We need to pray for the these teachers and schools. Maybe we need rethink where christain send their children for school.

May God have mercy on us.

I am not a prophet, but it will not be long before this happens over here on the west side of the pond, probably in my lifetime (I am 24).

Perhaps we'll see a generation of Daniels in the UK?
