(Scotland) Word "Lord" Removed from Prayer as Offensive

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: November 15, 2007

The word "Lord" was removed from a primary school grace before meals after one parent complained the mention was offensive. Contrary complaints of other parents lead to a subsequent reinstatement of the term.

Highland Council confirmed "Lord" was dropped from the prayer at Portree Primary after a request by a parent. However, the local authority said other parents and community members contacted the school to "voice their displeasure" at the change.
