Canada School Board To Allow Unmonitored Muslim Sermons In Schools


So it wasn’t good enough that they get prayer space and prayer times – the Muslim students weren’t satisfied with the imam’s sermons. Now they have demanded and received permission to hear unmonitored sermons. What will these unmonitored sermons consist of? Will they contain jihad preaching? Canadian authorities won’t know.

No matter what accommodation is made, it’s never enough.

Muslim students in the province of Ontario are entitled to hold weekly prayer meetings, held on Friday. These “Jumm’ah” prayer and sermon sessions have been the focus of intense criticism as the provincial public school system is not supposed to be promoting any religion or hosting any religious instruction. Many schools will not even host Christmas music concerts in deference to non-Christian faiths who may be offended by the observance.
