The Swedish governement continued its fascist onslaught against Christianity while it simultaneously coddles Islam this week when it ordered a Salvation Army-run preschool in to change its educational content and cease on its “Bible snack time” lessons and praying grace before meals.
According to Sweden’s Education Act, “confessional” educational content has no place during school time and students must always be allowed to opt out of such activities.
“As a confessional activity, we knew we could no longer have prayer time while children are at their desks where they learn, so we thought we would add grace as a nice feature during mealtimes,” said Britt Marie Mårtensson, the unnamed preschool’s manager. The government deemed this too confessional and said the preschoolers weren’t given enough choice to opt out of it.
The children now sing a “rhyme and thanks to the sun, the rain, and the food” in place of grace, SVT.se reported.
“It isn’t as hard to distinguish between activities which are educational and ones which aren’t in elementary schools, because teaching happens in class, whereas when it comes to [preschool] it can be difficult to tell,” Umeå Municipality’s Pian Rosell said of interpreting the Education Act.
