“Muslim prayer rooms should be opened in Catholic schools, say church leaders,” by Simon Caldwell for the Daily Mail, December 2 (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Muslim prayer rooms should be opened in every Roman Catholic school, Church leaders have said.
The Catholic bishops of England and Wales also want special toilet facilities in schools to be adapted for Islamic cleaning rituals.
Their demands will shock both Catholic parents and the Government because they go way beyond the legal requirements on catering for the rights and needs of religious minorities.
But the bishops are keen to answer critics who say religious schools sow division – and to show that they are leading the way in building bridges between people of different faiths….
Isn’t it funny how it always solely the responsibility of the non-Muslim party to build those bridges.
