Prominent religious leaders in the UK’s Jewish community have joined their Muslim counterparts in stating their opposition to the British government’s plans to force all primary schools in the country to teach children from age five and up about LGBTQQIP2SAA lifestyles.

According to the Jewish Chronicle, Chinuch U.K, which represents Britain’s Orthodox Jewish communities, has “issued a defiant challenge to the government by insisting their schools cannot discuss LGBT-related issues with pupils”.

The new pro-LGBTQI+ agenda curriculum was set to be rolled out in all UK primary schools next September but has already met resistance in schools designated for early introduction of the curriculum, particularly from schools with large Muslim student bodies.

There were widespread protests against the introduction of a compulsory pro-LGBTQI+ curriculum for children aged five and up at the Parkfield Community School in Alum Rock, Birmingham along with most of the other parents of students at the school.

The Guardian reported that in 2017 a broad survey of British Muslims found that over half believe homosexuality should be criminalised while nearly a quarter want full Sharia (Islamic Law) imposed as the UK’s law system.

At the time Trevor Phillips, the former head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, sounded the alarm stating the findings were “extremely worrying” as they suggested on many issues Muslims were “nation within a nation”.
