German Parents Fined for Not Sending Son on Mosque Trip -

The parents of a young boy have received a fine from a German court after they prevented their child from going to school to avoid a trip to a local mosque.
A district court Northern Germany fined the pair in July of last year but the parents of the child attempted to appeal the court ruling, only to have their appeal rejected by the Higher Regional Court in Schleswig this week, Hamburger Morgenpost reports.

The incident dates back to June of 2016 when the parents refused to let their son attend school for the day because the school had organised a field trip to the Rendsburg Mosque.

The court imposed a fine of 50 euros due to the fact the parents had forced their child to miss several lessons for the day, rather than just pull him out of the field trip to the mosque.

Trips to local mosques have been a source of controversy in the United Kingdom, as well, as among some parents have refused to grant permission for their children to attend such visits.

In Cornwall, a school reacted to parents pulling their children out of a trip in 2015 by publicly humiliating their children, singling them out in front of other pupils by forcing them to answer questions as to why they could not attend the mosque.

Later that year, governors of a rural school in Cornwall reacted to concerned parents by simply making mosque trips mandatory for all pupils.

In 2017, Staffordshire’s Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) also wrote a document in reaction to parents pulling their children out of mosque visits claiming that “Islamophobia” may have been behind the trend.

“While objections are raised about visits to a number of places of worship, they are most frequently about visits to mosques, which raises the bigger issue of Islamaphobia [sic] and how this can be addressed,” they said.

Earlier this year it was revealed that parents in Essex have gone even further, and have not only stopped their children visiting mosques but have also removed them from Religious Education lessons on Islam.

In other words, they’re not being fined for preventing their child from going to a mosque. It’s still dumb to fine them for keeping their kid home for a day, but they’re not being punished for “islamophobia” or any such bullshit.

Do they also visit a church/cathedral and a synagogue? If yes, and the students are not required to recite statements of faith when visiting any of these places, then yes it's bigotry. If they only visit a mosque and/or are required to make statements of faith there, then the government is stupid.

From what I remember of previous examples the students only visited mosques, girls were required to wear hijabs, and they all had to say the words that technically qualify you as declaring yourself muslim, any one of which I'd have problems with.

Can any euro Kiwi's explain why the EU is so hellbent on forcing islamic bullshit on everyone?

Not a believer in zionism but damn if I don't think there is some kebab equivalent at this point.
They’ve imported a quadrillion Muslims, and now, seeing as most of their precious migrants refuse to adapt and choose to live in their own isolated communities, they are forced to pretty much indoctrinate the native population. The alternative is to let things evolve naturally, which will most certainly end in massive social unrest. We’re already seeing signs of it, what with the rise in nationalism and far-right groups all over the Western World.

But this is totally not the first step or anything.
Not this specifically, since they’re not actually being fined for pulling their kid from the trip.

That’s the big question, are they putting equal emphasis on exposing kids to all religions? If so, fine, weird, whatever, but the parents still need to have a say on whether or not their kids go.

I had this nagging feeling in the back of my head that all EU countries had a separate class for kids who didn't want religious lessons, so I googled around;

https://www.expatica.com/de/education/children-education/education-in-germany-101611/

"Parents may opt for their children not to attend religion classes by having them attend ethics lessons instead, if available."

So is this option even offered when it's a school trip to a religious establishment? Or just when it's not a mosque? Germans, chime in?

Okay, why? In my country, religious education is separate from schools (likely a remnant of socialism) and it's intended for Catholic kids to get their First Communion and confirmation respectively by visiting classes taught by the local priest. If we had field trips within RE, they were always based around visiting churches or monasteries. Unless they were specifically studying to become Muslim, why would they visit a mosque?

It's probably different in other countries and it might be intended for the kids to learn of all religions, but as I understand it, religious education that I attended was for the purpose of becoming Catholic. Apart from history class, nobody learned much about religion in actual schools.

It's been a long time, but I'm sure when I was in school we had to take a note home and have our parents sign off on it before we were allowed to go on field trips. If we didn't go, they just stuck us all in a classroom to fuck around until everyone else came back. Now the government is fucking you up the ass instead. The world is getting crazier by the day.
